Bethenny Frankel is celebrating her 45th birthday today.
To mark the occasion, we decided to take a look back at Bethenny through the years, as she transitioned from a relatively unknown natural foods chef to a Real Housewives of New York star (arguably the breakout star of the series) to a business mogul.
Above: Bethenny and Cookie rock their bikinis on the “Paws for Style” runway in 2007. The pictures below – which span a whopping ten years – highlight Bethenny‘s style through the years, including a few rather unfortunate fashion and makeup choices. Enjoy.
