A big happy birthday is in order for Hayden Panettiere.

Albeit it's been nearly a year since the 26-year-old star has graced us with her presence on the red carpet (the last being the 2014 Emmys), her sophisticated style is still fresh in our minds.

Pregnant at the time of the awards show, Hayden's glittering Lorena Sarbu hugged her curves (and bump) perfectly, landing her a spot on our best dressed list. Of course, we already knew that Hayden adored simple, sophisticated red carpet designs, as evidenced by her lengthy list of red carpet hits. Most prominently, the star's 2014 Met Gala gown, crafted by Dennis Basso, captured the actress' sense of regal style, and remains one of her all-time best looks.
