Is it just us, or are some of our fave celebs reverse aging? It may sound crazy, but that Benjamin Button has to be real. We dug through the archives to show you what your faves looked like way back when, whether starting out as a teen pop sensation, fly girl, or just trying to make it – sit back and enjoy this blast from the past.
Before she was a serious screen queen, Mandy Moore served the cutesy blonde, side swept bang look like a true pop princesa.
Way before Savage X Fenty, Rihanna broke into the industry more “girl next door” than bad gal – but once she lost the bangs and the metallic highlights, it was a wrap.
It’s Britney, bitch! Or is it? The Mickey Mouse club vet was yet to lighten up and was still more girl than woman, with her dirty blonde locks and carefully parted fringe.
Kim and Kanye
Well before the Kimye empire ruled the media cycle, these two were flirty friends. Though Kim has gone from blonde to brunette many a time, her glossy raven locks were a signature then, and still are, now.
Back when Queen Bey was still Princess Bey and reigned in Destiny’s Child (look it up, my Gen Z friends), she kept her locks straight, voluminous, caramel and mid-length.
Before she was America’s bff and internationally known for having sleek hair, Jen kept her locks voluminous AF. Here’s proof that everything bigger was better in the early 90s.
The first reality villain, Kristin’s frosted platinum highlights were definitive early ‘00s/are giving us mean girl flashbacks.
The Younger babe really was a lot younger here, as evidenced by this sartorially questionable hounds-tooth hat.
Kendall and Kyle
Can you recognize tween Kylie with her curtain bang? It seems the Kar-Jenner duo has always been comfortable as style chameleons.
Don’t speak about anything other than this blue hair phase Gwen, which was one of Gwen’s most iconic looks ever.
What would a celeb time capsule roundup be without JLo, who miraculously looks younger at 50? We’re glad she ditched her brunette, short, flipped ends style for a diva-worthy honey blonde mane.
