Madonna's been owning the pop culture scene and making style waves for decades now. And as the icon celebrates her 56th birthday today, she's given approximately zero signs of slowing down. She mastered punk most recently, but could we have expected anything less?

From Ray-Ban Wayfarers and fingerless lace gloves to cone bras and stacks of rubber bracelets (the original arm party, in our opinion), Madonna has a long history of setting trends and paving the way for fashion freedom. Rather than sending a cake or flowers, we're honoring the pop star with a retrospective on the top 10 trends she more or less originated.
