Patti LuPone's Style Goes From Theater Novice To Tony Award-Winner (PHOTOS)

Patti LuPone is inseparable from the grandeur of her theater roles. The actress/singer burst onto the scene with her stunning performance as Eva Perón in the 1979 production of "Evita" and continued to woo audiences in plays such as "Les Misérables" and "Gypsy."

Along the way, the vivacious star had the glitzy wardrobe to match her A-list career, complete with fur, brocade and plenty of sequins -- clearly, LuPone knew how to grab attention on and off the stage. Nowadays, the Tony Award-winner opts for sleeker, more streamlined ensembles for her red carpet appearances, but small touches like lace panels and bold shoulders let us know that Patti's kept her flare.

In honor of LuPone's 64th birthday on April 21, we're taking a look at her style over the years. Click through the slideshow and tell us which looks are your favorite.
