Happy Birthday Julia Roberts: the eternal style icon turns 55 today

Julia Roberts was born Julia Fiona Roberts on 28 October 1967 in Smyrna, Georgia in the United States. On her 55th birthday, we celebrate one of America’s best-loved actresses, one who over time has played many beloved roles in some of the most pop films of the 1990s and 2000s. Julia was born into a family that was passionate about acting, but it was only after college that she decided to move to New York City in order to pursue – with all possible means – her dream of becoming an actress. Thus came her first film role for the 1989 film Blood Red set in the late 1800s. However, this film did not allow her to take off as an actress, which she did with films such as Steel Magnolias, in which she starred alongside Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis and Sally Field. For this film Roberts received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Julia Roberts’ most successful film is undoubtedly Pretty Woman. It was thanks to this cult film of the 1990s that the actress earned her iconic status worldwide.

From this moment on, Julia Roberts’ career would see a succession of incredible film successes that would make her the absolute face of romantic comedies. From Sleeping with the Enemy (1991), to The Pelican Brief (1993), via Something to Talk About (1995), Mary Reilly (1996), My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997), and Stepmom(1998).

During the 2000s Roberts consolidated her career by launching her own production company, Shoelace Productions, and in the same year grossed $20 million for her starring role in Erin Brockovich. For her performance, Roberts won an Oscar for Best Actress. Since then, she has starred alongside Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon in Ocean’s Eleven (2001) and Ocean’s Twelve (2004), Eat, Pray, Love (2010), until playing the role of Isabel Pullman, the mother of a child with a rare facial condition, in Wonder.


Julia Roberts is an actress of legendary and unique beauty. Many people remember her most for her gorgeous, voluminous hair, that incredible smile that can win anyone over and that contagious laugh. Her style, however, is totally personal and her elegance timeless. There are many celebrities in this world, but few superstars like Julia Roberts. Of all the outfits she has worn, it will certainly be hard to forget the look with which she won the Best Actress award in 2001. That stunning black vintage Valentino Couture gown from 1992 was voted the most iconic Oscar look of all time. Let’s relive some of Julia Roberts’ career moments together through her most beautiful outfits.
