Not all celebrities are instantly born with a style game on fleek. For some, they go through inevitable phases before finding the right path to sophistication and fashion glamour. Below, see some of Hollywood’s most drastic style evolution in years.
1. Kim Kardashian
Pre-Kanye, Kim Kardashian was all about satin bodycons and leopard prints. Fortunately, over the years, as Kim became Mrs. Yeezus, she also bid her flirty wardrobe goodbye and said hello to high fashion.
Nicole Polizzi, better known as Jersey Shore’s Snooki, cleans up pretty good. Swapping her tiny dresses to clothes that flatter her curves better has been one of the best decisions she’s made so far. Now, meet the Nicole behind the Snooki.
3. Victoria Beckham
Posh Spice wasn’t always that posh. Before V’s ascension to fashion royalty, she preferred varsity jackets over LBDs.
4. Paris Hilton
Since then until now, Paris still stays true to her Barbie image - but a little less sparkly and a little more classy.
5. Nicole Richie
Back in the noughties, there wouldn’t be Paris without Nicole. Long before the Kardashians became the face of reality TV, The Simple Life duo reigned supreme. Nicole, however, ditched her wild ways and blossomed into a legit fashion designer.
6. Angelina Jolie
Remember goth Jolie? Nope, neither do we! Gone are the days of her Hollywood’s wild child stint as she polished her wardrobe and became the strong, humanitarian woman that she is now.
7. Gwen Stefani
Over the years, we’ve seen Gwen in hot pink hair with her eccentric fashion choices. But the music giant has now traded her edgy punk look for a more refined and chic style, fit to lead both the music and fashion industry.
8. Hilary Duff
Hey now, hey now, Hilary Duff is no longer Lizzie McGuire. Letting go of her Disney phase, she leaves behind her belly-button baring tops and half-tied ponytails for a more modern look.
9. Jennifer Lopez
She’s always gonna be Jenny from the Block, but thank goodness JLo has already forgotten about her glittery scarves and chunky belts as she moved on to the A-lister status.
10. Kelly Osbourne
Before Kelly took her rightful place in Fashion Police, she entered into a rebellious phase and dressed like she came straight out of Avril Lavigne’s music video.
