Robin Wright is looking sexier than ever and she's turning 50 today.

The actress is ringing in her momentous birthday and she's starting off on the right foot. Wright is currently starring in the Netflix original series, House of Cards, which has already garnered critical acclaim and she's got a Golden Globe and several Emmy nominations to prove it.

But before she donned the body-con attire that would make any First Lady blush, Wright got her start in acting when she was just a teen and appeared in the soap opera, Santa Barbara. It wasn't too long after that Wright earned the iconic role in 1987's The Princess Bride as the title character. But the classic roles didn't stop there. Wright also appeared opposite of Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump as the troubled, but wildly spirited, Jenny, in which she earned her very first Golden Globe nomination in 1995.

Aside from her impressive career, the Dallas-born actress is also a mother and shares two children, 24-year-old daughter Dylan Frances and 22-year-old son Hopper Jack, with ex, Sean Penn.

In honor of Wright's 50th birthday, celebrate with a look back at some of her best red carpet looks to date, including her menswear-inspired ensembles.
