10 Incredible Celebrity Style Makeovers


When celebrities get makeovers we tend to make a big fuss over it,women are usually the ones who get the short end of that stick. Whether it’s dramatic weight loss or a simple change in style, the transformation is typically met with criticism or complete glee. Both men and women in the spotlight have to overcome cultural expectations of what they should look like or who they should be. We applaud anyone who believes they can master their image and become who they truly desire. Change is natural.

If you saw pictures of me wearing Hot Topic leather bracelets you’d probably laugh but understand that it was some younger incarnation of me. Being famous doesn’t change the fact that you go through many, many different phases in your life, for another example: last fall I thought sneaker wedges were a great idea, this fall not so much. The only difference between a Hollywood starlet and us regular folk is that we get to watch all of these changes happen for better or worse.

Sometimes a transformation is about bulking up or slimming down, sometimes it’s about putting on a tailored suit and ditching those sweatpants, other times it’s going from muggle (you know how us regulars dress) to fashionista. These 10 (11 if you count Miss Miley) decided to change. We can only hope it has made them happier but hot damn some of them look pretty different.
