Paula Patton just hit the big 4-0! 

The stunning actress will be busy blowing out her birthday candles today, so we'll do the honors of looking back at her most fashion-forward moments to date. From the red carpet to the streets of NYC, Patton never fails to be the picture of a strong, independent, sexy woman.

Since splitting from singer Robin Thicke back in October 2014, the Mission: ImpossibleGhost Protocol star and mom of son Julian hasn't missed an opportunity to flaunt what she's working with. But don't call it a comeback! Patton has always been a force to be reckoned with.

We're wishing Paula her best birthday yet—and we can't wait to see more of her in the year ahead!
