Sports: 40 photos that show how Tom Brady evolved into an NFL and fashion icon

Gisele B√ľndchen's fashion sense has rubbed off on Tom Brady.

Tom Brady's fashion sense had humble beginnings.

Tom Brady is now a five-time Super Bowl champion, securing his spot as arguably the greatest quarterback of all time.

But that is just one thing that is going well for Brady. He is also the husband of the world's highest-paid supermodel, Gisele B√ľndchen, and he is the third-highest-paid NFL player of all time.

Brady turns 40 on Thursday and in addition to being an NFL icon, Brady has become somewhat of a fashion icon off the field. However, Brady's fashion sense had humble beginnings.

Below we take a look at how his style has evolved over the years.

Brady's fashion decisions certainly had humble beginnings.

Brady's high school yearbook photo reveals a nice, clean look, especially with his hair which will take on many forms over the years.

Before he was in the NFL, there was a time when Brady's suits weren't always tailored.

While at Michigan, Brady once opted for the oversized, backwards golf hat.

Brady's hair at Michigan was pretty straight-forward.

Rookie Tom Brady had a goatee and is almost unrecognizable.

In 2002, Brady still had the standard college haircut and you can tell he wasn't as obsessed with fitness and diet as he is today.

He was so young!

And he was still wearing golf hats.

2004 Tom Brady loved pleated pants.

He also liked the front-spike.

At the 2004 ESPYs with Bridget Moynahan, it was a pinstriped suit.

In 2005, Tom's hair started to get a little bigger.

GAH! 2017 Tom Brady would never let this happen.

In 2006, Brady fixed that problem with a buzz-cut.

The black undershirt was a bold choice.

While we generally think of Brady as being clean-shaven, he has at times experimented with various stages of scruffiness, as he did in 2006.

In 2007, things were getting frumpy again.

Maybe it is the lighting, but Brady's hair looked noticeably less blonde in 2008. It also looks like he tried to emulate Bill Belichick by using scissors on his shirt.

Things took a turn for the better at the Met Gala in 2008 with then-girlfriend Gisele Bundchen.

In 2010, Tom opted for the mop-top hair.

By the time the football season rolled around that year, Brady was starting to look like Patrick Swayze in "Road House."

It is easy to imagine Tom just shaking his hair side-to-side in slow motion.

The fashion move that rattled a lot of fans the most was when he signed with Uggs, which at the time was most widely known as a women's brand.

2011 Tom Brady liked a lot of hair product.

2011 Football Tom Brady liked to part his hair down the middle.

In 2012, Tom Brady turned in his rebel card for his dad card.

But then the 2012 Met Gala happened and we got Tom's most daring hairstyle yet.

At the 2013 Met Gala, Brady's hair was more conservative, but he jazzed things up with a blue tux.

But in 2014, he went with a classic look on both fronts.

Tom in glasses!

Nowadays, Tom has a strong, yet conservative fashion sense and always looks great.

But in the offseason, he is not afraid to get a bit more aggressive.

At this year's Met Gala, he added a little spice with the shiny grey jacket.

And at the Kentucky Derby he went with a big hat.

He'll even still slick the hair back from time to time.

Or let it down when he is with Gisele.

And Brady still occasionally makes risky fashion moves, such as the time he wore the widely mocked shoes of his fellow Under Armour athlete, Stephen Curry.

And his sumo look could use some work.

But even when Brady goes casual, he usually nails it.

Now check out where Tom Brady ranks among the world's most dominant athletes.
