Then and Now: 8 Celebrity Style Transformations

We love following celebrities and their fashion. The most interesting thing about celebrity style is how much it changes over the years. While some celebs have a signature style that they maintain throughout their careers, many stars go through total style transformations. A lot of celebs wouldn’t be caught dead in an outfit they wore years ago! We dug through the archives to take a look at the celebrity style of 2008 and see how much things have changed. Check out eight of your favorite stars and the celebrity style transformations they’ve gone through in a decade:

1. Rihanna


Rihanna has always been on the forefront of fashion and she’s always looked good in whatever she’s worn. With that said, her 2008 style was a little less edgy than her style is today. She swapped her checkered two-piece for a fur coat, and her pixie cut for some tussled waves. Wither way, we love our girl Rih Rih!

2. Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez has always had chic and simple style, but it’s definitely gotten more risqué over the years. It makes sense, since she was still just a teenager back in 2008. She’s now an adult who has traded in her white tank top and skinny jeans for a little black dress, and she looks better than ever!

3. Katy PerryKaty Perry

Katy Perry has always had a wild sense of style, and that certainly hasn’t changed much. While she may not be dressing in bedazzled corsets, she still chooses some unique fashion items. Her biggest transformations have occurred with her hair, which has been black, purple, blue, and now blonde!

4. Beyoncé



Beyoncé is one of our favorite celebrity style transformations. While Queen Bey has always had perfect style, it’s become more distinguished over the years. Back in 2008, Bey dressed chic and sexy. Now, she dresses like a chic and sexy mother of three!

5. Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga has always had statement-making style. She first came on the scene in 2008 and definitely made head turns with her strange and unconventional fashion choices. Not much has changed ten years later, and we’re okay with this! Gaga always keeps us on our toes with her style and we love it.

6. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence has definitely had a major style transformation. In 2008, she was still a fresh-faced young actress who hadn’t made it big in Hollywood yet. This is clear from her ultra-casual black tank top and jeans look. Ten years later, she’s one of the highest paid actresses in the world and a style icon!

7. Emma Stone

Emma Stone

We absolutely love Emma Stone. Back in 2008, she wasn’t well-known yet when she sported this fun, young dress to the MTV Movie Awards. Just a decade later she would wear this glamourous, elegant gown to the Academy Awards where she won the Best Actress Oscar for her role in La La Land!

8. Kim Kardashian

Kim KardashianKim Kardashian has had by far one of the biggest celebrity style transformations. Keeping Up With the Kardashians had just started in 2008 and Kim’s style wasn’t very polished yet. Ten years later, Kim’s style has become more refined, with a lot of neutrals and simple looks.
