Gabby Douglas turns 17 today! The golden girl has stolen our hearts ever since the summer Olympics. Her spunk and electric attitude on the USA Gymnastics team and her high flying flips made her an instant star. Gabby became the first African-American gymnast to win the Gold medal in the individual all-around, and the first American to win both individual and team competition at the same Olympics. Her win has resulted in an endorsement deal with Kellogg's Corn Flakes and her autobiography, Grace, Gold & Glory, which made it on the New York Times' Best Seller list.

The list of Gabby's achievements goes on, and she has also leaped into the fashion world with her fun, young and fresh outfit choices. We can't get enough!
