It's been a big year for Paulina Gretzky. She was allowed back on Twitter (after being booted off in late 2011 by dear old dad Wayne Gretzky). She made Maxim's 'Hot 100' List, caused a stir on Instagram, filmed a movie and had a sexy photo spread in Complex Magazine.

It'll be a hard one to top (though if there's anyone who will keep us guessing — sartorially and otherwise — it's Ms. Paulina).

Today, in celebration of her 24th birthday, we're taking a look back at the evolution of Canada's most famous hockey daughter, from pint-sized baby to sexy social media sensation.

Happy birthday, Paulina!
