The trendy bowl cut-sporting Van Nuys High School cheerleader turned pro when she was hired as a Lakers Girl.
From Laker Girl to Forever Your Girl, Paula Abdul was a late '80s icon of sultry style. Yet, it was her role on American Idol that revealed the singer-choreographer's playful take on glam. "I'm getting better with age, and more relaxed in my skin than ever before," she told InStyle. "In my 20s and 30s I used to feel like I was a visitor, even though I was invited to the party. Now, life is my party." It's no wonder, then, that Abdul loves to flaunt fun, flashy looks from pearlescent lipstick to voluminous, shiny locks.
