Sarah Michelle Gellar knows how to slay, especially when it comes to style.
The actress, who turns 38 on April 14, won us over back in 1997 when we first watched her accept her fate as a "slayer of the undead" on "Buffy The Vampire Slayer." She went from being the uber popular cheerleader to the "thing that monsters have nightmares about." In a word, she was awesome.
So today, in honour of the star's birthday, we're sharing some of the best style lessons we ever learned by watching her kick some serious vampire butt. Take note!
