7 Most Dramatic Celebrity Style Transformations

Believe it or not, the style stars of today haven’t always lived on the best dressed list. From Victoria Beckham to Rihanna, these are the A-Listers who have endured the most drastic fashion transformations in their careers.

1. Victoria Beckham

In her post Spice Girls career, Victoria Beckham experimented with a lot of different looks and hairstyles—from a blonde pixie to long extensions and plenty of body-con dresses. With the birth of her own fashion empire, Beckham’s look became polished and elegant with a predominantly neutral colour palette.

2. Miley Cyrus

The early Hannah Montana days saw Miley Cyrus as your typical trendy teen—opting for girly dresses and camisole tops with jeans. Now, Cyrus’s style has broken free from that stigma with the singer’s edgy, rebellious and sometimes even hippie-inspired sense of style that continues to surprise people to this day.

3. Taylor Swift

Swift emerged on the country music scene with teardrops on her guitar and cowboy boots to match. When her music made the transition from country to pop, the singer’s style followed suit going from sundresses and cowboy boots to midriff-baring looks and a new found love of crop tops.

4. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

Before honing in on their current minimalist The Row style, the Olsen twins experimented with plenty of colourful bohemian looks along with vintage furs, leopard prints and different hair colours.

5. Kim Kardashian

As an early reality show star and Paris Hilton’s right-hand woman, Kardashian’s wardrobe included oversized hoop earrings, plenty of colorful bandage dresses and pointy toed boots. Now, in a post Kanye-styled world Kardashian is at her sartorial peak, owning her signature minimalist look which typically includes an all neutral color palette, simple lines and skin-tight silhouettes.

6. Rihanna

The start of Rihanna’s music career saw boxers sticking out of jeans, bellybutton rings, bedazzled belly-shirts and pink Converse sneakers. Now, Bad Gal Riri has a CFDA Style Icon Award under her belt and is a true fashion chameleon, managing to pull off even the most daring of looks.

7. Beyoncé

Beyoncé went from sparkly coordinated Destiny’s Child outfits (designed by mom Tina Knowles) to a girly red carpet style that featured items like tulle skirts and bedazzled colourful dresses. Now, Queen Bey has traded in her girly, feminine style for full-on femme fatale with looks that are both sexy and glam.
