Starting with her early appearances on The Love Boat during her childhood, Tori quickly rose to prominence with her iconic portrayal of Donna Martin on the hit series Beverly Hills, 90210.

 Her acting talent propelled her to stardom at a young age, but it was her tumultuous personal life that later grabbed headlines.

From her initial days as a brunette child actress to her transformation into a captivating blonde bombshell reality star, her journey has been an intriguing blend of professional achievements and personal struggles.

1983: CHILD STAR

 Despite her tender age, Tori made memorable cameo appearances that caught the attention of audiences.

In a 1987 episode of the series Hotel, Tori sported the same distinctive hairstyle, complemented by a vibrant color block sweater, reflecting the fashion trends of that era.

At the age of 17, Tori Spelling embarked on a career-defining journey by joining the cast of the immensely popular television series Beverly Hills, 90210. 

In this breakthrough role, she portrayed Donna Martin, a privileged high school student with a keen sense of fashion. 

During this period, photographs of Tori showcased her impeccable style, capturing her as a fashionable teenager who effortlessly embraced the latest trends, ranging from trendy denim ensembles to stylish boots.

2004: TORI GOT MARRIED

In 2004, Tori Spelling introduced a new figure by her side - her then-husband Charlie Shanian. 

The couple was frequently captured together, attending glamorous gala events and even enjoying basketball games as a pair.

Their wedding ceremony, a lavish affair costing a staggering $1 million, symbolized the beginning of this new phase. 

However, despite their initial optimism, the union was short-lived. Just over a year later, Charlie filed for divorce, indicating that their marriage was not destined to endure.

In a departure from her previous pregnancies, Tori Spelling faced significant challenges during her third pregnancy. 

According to USA Today, she spent a staggering 10 weeks in the hospital and endured four months of bed rest due to a diagnosis of placenta previa.

 This condition, characterized by the placenta covering the cervix, can lead to severe internal bleeding. 

Despite these obstacles, she joyfully welcomed her third child, Hattie, on October 10, 2011.

Merely five months later, Spelling surprised her fans by announcing the impending arrival of another addition to the McDermott family. 

2013: UNFORGETTABLE FOUR DECADES IN HOLLYWOOD

Since reaching the milestone of turning 40 in 2013, Tori Spelling's fashion choices have remained consistent.
