Celebrities: They are so not just like us.

For one thing, they have tons of money. For another, they have glam squads. And rounding out the trifecta of reasonswhycelebritiesalwayslookperfect: Most of them have stylists.

It’s comforting to know that once upon a time most of the girls with seemingly innate senses of flawless style were once just like we were: Saddled with  unfortunate Abercromie and Fitch obsessions and very little fashion savvy. Unless you’re like, an Olsen twin, and were basically born with a tiny spotlight over your bald head, chances are you’ve had a few of your own fashion missteps.

Let’s take a look at how some of the most stylish ladies in Hollywood (who, for the record, were all stunning and wonderful even when they were wearing Hollister miniskirts) before they hit it big.
