August 1999

Before she broke out as a solo artist in 2000, Pink was in an R&B girl group called Choice. Choice broke up in 1998, and in 2000, she released her debut solo album Can’t Take Me Home. This is her at the first-ever edition of the Teen Choice Awards.

By the time the second Teen Choice Awards came around, Pink was on her way to pop stardom. Her first single, “There You Go,” hit number seven on the Billboard Hot 100, and she was about to release the even more successful “Most Girls.”

This outfit, worn to the Soul Train Lady of Soul Awards, is a perfect illustration of Pink’s early career — a weird blend of hip-hop and punk, with a whole lot of exposed midriff. I will say I am extremely here for that Joan Jett crop top, though.

Bitch better have her money! Pink wore this Benjamins-themed look to the Billboard Music Awards in 2000, and even matched her hair to her dollar bills. Now that’s commitment! That year, Pink took home the BBMA for Best New Pop Artist.

In case you have forgotten how special the early aughts were, this photo should give you a quick reminder. Pink is wearing a pair of graffitied overalls that are (1) painted with her own name and (2) topped by an actual bra. WHAT A TIME! This was taken at the American Music Awards, where Pink was nominated for Best New Soul/R&B Artist. (She lost to Donell Jones.)

Who can forget the “Lady Marmalade” days? Pink wore this boudoir-themed outfit to the 2001 MTV Movie Awards, where she performed the Moulin Rouge! song with Lil’ Kim, Christina Aguilera, and Mya.

Yes, this is Pink barefoot at the VMAs. Pink does her own thing at all times, OK? Anyway, she’s holding that Moonman because the aforementioned “Lady Marmalade” won Video of the Year.

One of Pink’s 2002 Grammys looks was clearly inspired by her lingering Moulin Rouge! affection, with a little bit of Beyond Thunderdome thrown in for good measure. “Lady Marmalade” won Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals.

If you’ve made it this far, then you know that Pink’s pelvic bones are a recurring theme in her earlier looks. Can you blame her, though? She’s got V-lines like a bodybuilder! Here, she’s at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards performing “Feel Good Time,” her song from the Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle soundtrack.

After a brief flirtation with brunette life, Pink went back to blonde (and pink) for her Try This release party. Try This was her third studio album, and featured the singles “Trouble” and “God Is a DJ.”

Surprisingly, this photo is not from a Halloween concert; this is what Pink wore to perform at the 2003 MTV Europe Music Awards in Scotland. That year, she was nominated for Best Female Artist and Best Pop Artist.

You didn’t think we would go all the way back to 2003 and not stop at TRL, did you? Obviously not! Have you ever seen a more perfectly 2003 outfit in your life?

Pink doesn’t always get a lot of credit for her fashion innovations, but as you can see, she was a pioneer of the naked dress before people even used the term “naked dress.” She wore this to the 2003 American Music Awards, where she was nominated for Best Pop/Rock Female Artist.

Ah, yes, another pivotal moment in Pink’s history — the Pepsi commercial that also starred Beyoncé and Britney Spears. This photo was taken at the premiere of that commercial, which is crazy, because imagine a world where a commercial is such a big deal that it requires a premiere.

Pink (the hair) returned in early 2004, and Pink (the person) decided the best way to display it would be via giant mohawk. Also back? The V-lines.

Pink kept the punk theme going into 2005, at a benefit concert for the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. In June, Pink proposed to her future husband Carey Hart at a motocross event in California. They married in January 2006.

Pink’s aerial acrobatics have become something of a meme in recent years, so it’s easy to forget that she’s actually been doing this for more than a decade. This is her getting her Cirque du Soleil on as the opener for Justin Timberlake’s 2007 tour.

This is approximately where Pink starts to abandon things like money-printed dresses in favor of sleeker, more traditional red-carpet gowns. She’s still got a mohawk, though, because she’s Pink. At this Grammys, she was nominated for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for “Stupid Girls.”

A harlequin outfit, but make it fashion. Pink didn’t win any Moonmen at the 2008 VMAs, but she did perform “So What” during the show. The following month, Pink released her fifth album Funhouse, which in addition to “So What” includes “Sober” and “Please Don’t Leave Me.”

Pink wore this slinky number to perform “Sober” at the 2008 AMAs. Earlier in 2008, she and husband Carey Hart announced their separation after two years of marriage. He appeared in the video for “So What,” which is about their split.

This carnivalesque look was one of Pink’s stage outfits for the Funhouse tour, which ran throughout 2009. Though her first album came out in 2000, the Funhouse tour was actually Pink’s first headlining arena tour in North America.

This earth goddess cape thing is actually hiding an elaborate, strappy leotard that Pink revealed during the eventual “Pink flies” portion of her performance. (She was singing “Glitter in the Air” at the Grammys.) In February, Pink and Carey Hart got back together.

A ruffly black minidress that’s hiding a studded bra, accessorized with fishnet stockings and a red garter? The true essence of Pink’s fashion sense (on display at a festival in London).

Pink wore this to perform “Raise Your Glass” at the 2010 AMAs. “Raise Your Glass” was on her greatest hits compilation Greatest Hits…So Far!!! and was produced by pop genius Max Martin. It ultimately became her third number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Also this month, Pink announced that she was expecting her first child; Willow Sage Hart was born in June 2011.

In March, Pink classed up the Academy Awards with a truly gorgeous dress and a performance of “Over the Rainbow,” for the 75th anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. Pink has never been nominated for an Oscar, but all it’ll take is one Diane Warren collaboration to make it happen.

Pink is making a crazy face in this photo, but I could not resist it for a number of reasons, the main one being that she’s sitting on the hands of a giant clock. The clock is because she was performing “Just Like Fire,” her song from Alice Through the Looking Glass, at the BBMAs.

Pink, in pink, from head to toe! Another Alice Through the Looking Glass appearance, this time at Jimmy Kimmel Live. Please note the aviator sunglasses — even in a feminine, flowing gown, Pink retains elements of rockstar badassery. In December 2016, Pink gave birth to her second child, Jameson Moon.

Another one from the same VMAs, because it was a special night. When she accepted her Moonman, Pink gave a wonderful speech about her daughter, who’d been feeling down about herself. “We don’t change,” Pink said she told Willow. “We take the gravel and the shell and we make a pearl. And we help other people to change so they can see more kinds of beauty.”

Pink wore this beautiful confection of a dress to the 2017 AMAs, where she performed “Everybody Hurts” with Kelly Clarkson and later sang “Beautiful Trauma” on her own. Beautiful Trauma, her seventh album, came out in October, and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.
