Kim Cattrall Style Evolution: From Belly Tops To Ball Gowns (PHOTOS)

Kim Cattrall is best known from her role on "Sex and the City" as the provacatively clad, uninhibited Samantha Jones. Much like her character, Cattrall has been fearless with her wardrobe choices over the years. Whether it's a sheer black dress, a midriff-baring ensemble on the red carpet or a Canadian tuxedo, one thing's for certain, this gal's got style.

Before SATC, Cattrall starred in "Mannequin," and the actress has kept busy since. Acting on Broadway and the big screen, she has proven that she is as multi-faceted as her wardrobe choices. In honor of the Canadian's 56th birthday we decided to take a look back at some of her most memorable fashion moments (okay, and some we wish we could forget).

Do you think Cattrall's style has gotten better over the years?
