​Celine Dion has a voice that can move millions. And with her birthday coming up on March 30th, we took a look back at her style over her years in the spotlight.

Having emerged into the public's eye (and ears!) when she was only in her teens, we've seen her embrace all kinds of trends and take lots of fashion risks. On starting her career at such a young age, Dion told PEOPLE "I missed my family and my home, but I don't regret having lost my adolescence. I had one dream: I wanted to be a singer."

One of the powerhouse voices of our time, she has definitely achieved that dream. Take a walk down memory lane and check out our Style Throwback with Celine Dion, and yes -- the Heart of the Ocean does make an appearance!
