Whitney Port: 24 Years of Excellence

Whitney Port has come a long way since first entering the world on March 4, 1985.

She’s parlayed a spot on MTV’s reality-TV smash The Hills into her very own hit spinoff, The City. She’s poised to overtake the fashion world as a designer for clothing legend Diane von Furstenberg. And even the most cold-hearted hater has to admit that Whitney rocks some wicked headgear.

On her official Web site today, Port—who pre-celebrated her 24th birthday last night by having dinner at a Los Angeles steak house with her boyfriend, Jay Lyon—turns reflective, sharing childhood memories with her legions of fans via personal photos.

“I know I posted some old school pics yesterday, but I really love looking through childhood photos and I wanted to share just a few more,” Port writes. “I though this one from preschool of me wearing my birthday crown was pretty fitting!” (Check it out here.)

But of course it is, Whitney. For you truly are the queen. Of all our hearts.
