Today is Emma Watson's birthday! The British actress and feminist activist turns 26 today, and in honor of the occasion, we've collected her best looks from her past decade-and-a-half in the spotlight.

Equally as important, however, it's also the birthday of (literal) renaissance man Leonardo da Vinci. Though he's got a few years on Emma — he turns 564 today — his signature style was often overshadowed by his work in the fields of painting, sculpting, science, and invention. Sad news, however: The duo won't be celebrating together, because he's dead.

In the spirit of equality, here are Emma and Leonardo's most memorable looks ever, from Emma's 2010 Met Gala gown to one of history's greatest selfies, which is currently sitting behind bulletproof glass in the Louvre.
