Celebrities often get pigeon holed into certain roles and style. It’s hard for them to break out of those confines and it’s hard for us to see them in a new light. We just get used to a certain image and then, when people grow and change we find it hard to get used to the new version of them. It’s also true that some celebs go the extra mile to break free of their old image and sometimes even go too far. Let’s take a look at some celebs who have drastically changed over the past decade.
1. Vanessa Hudgens
Vanessa, like many on this list started out as a little Disney girl, prim and proper. Look at her now though. She is one daring woman.
2. Danielle Panabaker
From Disney darling to a GQ covergirl. It’s been a decade and you’ve gotta admit she looks very classy.
3. Ariel Winter
Who would’ve thought that the nerdy kid from Modern Family would grow up into a gorgeous lady who’s not afraid to flaunt her curves?
4. Bella Thorne
Do you even remember how painfully awkward Bella Thorne was a decade ago? What is that pose and that rainbow dress. Look at this badass girl now though, she clearly knows what she’s doing.
5. Selena Gomez
Another great transformation from cute and awkward to grown up and stunning. It’s not just her style, it’s her whole personality. Do you think Spring Breakers helped her break out of the Disney image or was she on the right track even before?
Rihanna is such a queen now that no one even remembers what she used to look like at the beginning of her career. She looks so innocent and let’s not even talk about her outfits there. She’s a style icon now. Whatever she wears is immediately a trend. She slays.
7. Kylie Jenner
Kylie looked like such an awkward teen. But look at her now, she’s clearly a woman now, with her curves and her style and her business. Haters gonna hate, but you do you, girl.
8. Shia Labeouf
Shia went from awkward teen to serious actor, to artist, and now it seems like he’s in a hobo phase. We understand that you’re really into art and you have to make certain sacrifices for your art, but do you have to look like a homeless person?
9. Kelli Berglund
Disney girl to dark charming lady. We love this transformation. It’s not too much, yet it clearly sends a clear message that this lady knows what she’s up to and you shouldn’t mess with her.
10. Taylor Momsen
It’s shocking seeing these two pictures side by side, isn’t it? But what happens when you remember that Taylor used to be that little girl in Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas?
11. Zac Efron
Zac Efron was always a Disney Prince, all prim and proper and pretty. But now he’s a bit rough around the edges, even more buff, and you know what? We’re not complaining.
12. Debby Ryan
Debby looks so painfully awkward as a teen, but now it seems like she blossomed into a beautiful, gorgeous, stunning lady.
