As if Miley Cyrus needed any more of a reason to celebrate, she's turning 23 today! The former Disney star has certainly come a long way since her debut on television back in 2006, and we're honoring the famous performer with an ode to her stunning transformation.

Cyrus is famously known as the daughter of country singer, Billy Ray Cyrus (the man who gave us the hit song, "Achy Breaky Heart"), but she soon earned her own accolades, becoming Disney royalty with her hit series, Hannah Montana.

What came next were a mix of TV appearances, films like The Last Song and solo albums including Breakout, Can't Be Tamed, 2013's Bangerz and most recently, Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz, which featured hits "See You Again," "Party in the U.S.A" and "We Can't Stop."

Now at 23, Cyrus is owning her personal style—let's just say it's racier that her teenage days—and taking plenty of fashion risks. After all, she's just being Miley! Celebrate the singer's 23rd birthday by reliving her transformation dating back to 1994.
