There’s something so fascinating about celebrity transformations. After all, we’re so used to seeing stars light up on the red carpet, wearing their most glamorous attire and donning picture-perfect makeup. There’s no question that it can be easy to forget the huge celebrity transformations that have happened to these Hollywood heartbreakers and heartthrobs.
Some celebrity transformations happen before said star is famous. Take Ryan Seacrest, for example. We’ve gotten so accustomed to watching him shine on TV with perfect hair and pristinely polished suits. Maybe that’s why we couldn’t recognize him at all when we caught a glimpse of his school yearbook photo; he looks absolutely nothing like the star we’ve grown to know and love on the screen! And other celebrity transformations have happened while the A-lister has been famous the whole time, such as Kelly Osbourne. We all vaguely remember what the beautiful Brit looked like when she had a slightly heavier frame and different colored hair. But when you see her pic from several years back, it’s hard to convince yourself that she’s the same exact person who rocks a totally new (and still beautiful!) look today.
That being said, it’s important to remember that celebrity have their normal moments, too, just like the rest of us. And what could be more normal than growing and changing as the years go on? But we have to admit that appearance is one of the most striking aspects of change. When you see these celebs grow up and out and in before your very eyes, we’re sure you’ll agree.
