Greta Gerwig is not one for quiet fashion. Before she was known for her stint as a blockbuster director—with projects like Barbie, Little Women, and Lady Bird—she was once widely recognized as the face of film’s “mumblecore” movement as a starring actress in movies like Hannah Takes the Stairs and The House of the Devil. Since, the actress-turned-director has since gone on to bring all kinds of statement fashion to the red carpet.

When she’s not busy making history as the first female director to have their movie—Barbie, of course—gross more than $1 billion or serving as the Cannes Film Festival’s jury president, Gerwig can be found dabbling in all types of statement fashion. Over the years, the California native has slipped into top brands like Armani, Fendi, and Saint Laurent with aplomb. But she’s also dabbled in independent, edgier labels from the likes of Molly Goddard and 16Arlington. Below, a look back at all of Greta Gerwig’s best red carpet moments from 2009 until now.
