We want to wish Brooke Shields a very happy birthday! The actress, model and author, who’s been in the public eye since starring as a child prostitute in 1978’s Pretty Baby, turns 51 today, and looks as gorgeous as ever. Shields, who grew up in Englewood, went on to become a model, starring at age 15 in a Calvin Klein ad in which she asked “You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing.” She later attended Princeton, where she graduated with a degree in French literature and in 2014, published her memoir, There Was a Little Girl: The Real Story of My Mother and Me.
She’ll star next in Flower Shop Mystery: Dearly Depotted, which airs June 26 on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries. As you can see below, whether glammed up or low-key, this Jersey girl (and mom to two daughters with her husband producer Chris Henchy) doesn’t have a bad side.
