How naive were we before Mean Girls? We didn't know fetch (nor not to try to make it happen — duly noted, Regina) and were often caught wearing colors other than pink on Wednesday. But thankfully, we've now memorized every line of the movie — and we all know the style lessons it taught us like the back of our hand.
But let's be honest, most of the tips and tricks we learned — from how to compliment a best friend's outfit to starting new trends — we learned from Regina George. And she'd be nothing without Rachel McAdams, right? So on the actress's 36th birthday, we're brushing up on Regina's most memorable fashion moments and quite a few others. Scroll down to study up.
