Pretty much overnight, the bow trend has caught fire — both on the runway and the street.

Whether it’s a delicate satin hair bow, an oversized bow-adorned mini dress or a crystal-embellished bow pump, there’s really no wrong way to rock the feminine accessory.

While everyone from Chrissy Tiegen to Dua Lipa to Jennifer Lopez has jumped on the bow bandwagon, there’s one celeb who’s always been ahead of the game: Sydney Sweeney.

Sydney has been rocking bows for years now, and not just in her hair. She rocked dresses with oversized bows to both the 2021 People’s Choice Awards and the 2022 Venice Film Festival, and she famously wore a Miu Miu Bow-Adorned Crystal Gown to the 2023 Met Gala.

Most recently, she even hosted a Bows Before Bro Galentine’s Day Dinner for all her besties (which was absolutely adorable, by the way!).

Below, check out Sydney’s most iconic bow fashion moments over the years.
