America's sweetheart, Katie Holmes, is celebrating her birthday today! The former Dawson's Creek actress is turning 37 and since she's the queen of #ThrowbackThursday, we're honoring Holmes's big day by sharing her best vintage snaps.

Holmes first busted out onto the Hollywood scene as Joey Potter in the hit television show, Dawson's Creek back in 1998 and soon earned national attention and adoration. Shortly after, the actress earned numerous roles in films including First Daughter, Batman Begins, The Romantics, and as Jackie Kennedy in the television miniseries, The Kennedys.

Aside from her acting career, who could forget the moment Holmes created a trend when she debuted her newly-sheared bob, which immediately became the "It" hairdo. This alone proves the brilliance behind Holmes's latest project as the co-owner and spokesperson Alterna haircare, which she announced in 2013.

Holmes is also known to dress sans a stylist and even rubs shoulders with some of fashion's most venerable designers including her good friend, Zac Posen (as proven by her Instagram account). Plus, the actress has also earned experience with designing thanks to her former clothing line, Holmes & Yang, with longtime stylist, Jeanne Yang.

Despite an ever-growing resume, Holmes is most importantly a mother to her 9-year-old daughter, Suri (with ex-husband Tom Cruise), who often makes a few appearances on mommy's social media feed.
