Stella Maxwell is a relatively new Victoria’s Secret Angel, compared with the legendary Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio, but she’s already gained a following both on the runway and on social media. Of course, part of that early popularity is also because that same year, Maxwell, who grew up in Northern Island, made another step into the spotlight: she started dating (and eating churros with) one Miley Cyrus. The pair eventually split up, but Maxwell never seems to have separated with her best red carpet bud Jeremy Scott, who’s wont to coordinate out-there ensembles with the model at events like MTV’s VMAs. And while she’s lately been pictured in matching skinny jeans with her new girlfriend, Kristen Stewart, Maxwell has another sartorial favorite: even in the summertime, there’s a good chance you can catch her in one of her many leather jackets. In honor of her 26th birthday, take a look back at her best looks on and off the red carpet over the years with her style evolution, here.
