Whether you know China Anne McClain best from playing Chyna Parks in A.N.T. Farm or Uma in the Descendants movies, there is no doubt she is a total Disney Channel legend. But when she’s not making us laugh on screen, she’s slaying red carpets left and right! And that’s a fact.

Yep, that’s right. The How to Build a Better Boy actress is a total style legend — along with being a Disney Channel legend, of course. The actress got her start in Hollywood at a very young age, which means she has stepped out for tons of star-studded events over the years alongside her famous friends. The Black Lightning actress began starring in movies and TV shows in 2005 — and before her run on Disney Channel, she even starred in Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2. So many of us have grown up watching China on our TV screens, and we are always so inspired by her red carpet looks. From elegant gowns to trendy ensembles, the fashion-forward actress has seriously transformed from an adorable child star to a red carpet-slaying queen.

Scroll through the gallery to check out China’s red carpet evolution from over the years — and prepare to be inspired!
