When Kate Upton began her career as a model, she admittedly didn't know that much about fashion. But since her early days, the supermodel has come a long way, both in terms of what she has accomplished -- the lady has a few Sports Illustrated covers under her belt, along with a starring role in a major blockbuster film -- and in terms of her personal style.

Back in 2011, when she first rose to fame, the blonde beauty stormed red carpets in short bandage dresses, but over the years Upton began favoring an old Hollywood look, wearing longer dresses, red lipstick and big curls.

In honor of Upton's 24th birthday on Friday, June 10, we're taking a look back at her style transformation. Check out the many phases of the soon-to-be Mrs. Justin Verlander.
