Few young ladies have personified teenage angst as well as Angela Chase did in "My So-Called Life." Her flannels, boots and mismatched prints provided us with the perfect way to express our adolescent moodiness. And don't even get us started on her blunt bob.
Fortunately, the actress behind the role, Claire Danes, has turned into quite the chic grown woman over the years. Besides being a '90s style icon (in our opinion, at least), the Manhattan-born blonde went on to have a critically-acclaimed film and television career, study at Yale, marry her dreamy co-star Hugh Dancy and give birth to a baby boy. Oh, and have you heard of a little show she's on called "Homeland"?
In honor of Claire's 34th birthday on April 12, we're taking a look back at the star's style over the years. Click through the slideshow and tell us which looks are your favorites. You've come a long way, Angela.
