Mariah Carey's style is all about skin, skin and more skin. Since the release of her self-titled album in 1990, the Grammy Award-winning singer has worn slinky dresses, stiletto heels and sexy spiral curls that nearly distract from her five-octave range.

Fast-forward 20 years, and Carey is still sporting curve-hugging numbers even after giving birth to fraternal twins Monroe and Moroccan (aka "dem babies") with husband Nick Cannon. But the "American Idol" judge admits that it hasn't been easy getting back her bikini body.

"I'm proud of how hard I worked to get my body back... I had to do this for me," she told Us Weekly. And you're looking good, MC!

In celebration of Mariah Carey's 43rd birthday on Wednesday (Mar. 27), we've rounded up her greatest style hits (and misses) over the years.
