If you check out any celebrity who’s been in the spotlight for at least a couple of years, you’ll notice something: they change their look over the years. And change is a good thing, right?
You’ll be amazed at how different these celebrities look today. Some don’t even look like the same person!
TV producer and writer powerhouse Shonda Rhimes is the brains who brought us “Grey’s Anatomy”, “Private Practice” and “Scandal”. Although she spends most of her time behind the scenes, she can’t avoid the spotlight, which explains why she transformed herself.
In an interview with Today, Rhimes revealed that she dropped 117 pounds in a SINGLE YEAR! But it wasn’t vanity that got her to do this — it was her children, whom she wanted to be there for as they grew up. And along with that, she got herself a hot new wardrobe that shows off her curves.
Remember when Christina Aguilera was battling Britney Spears for the title of teen pop princess? Aguilera disappeared off the face of the radar for a little while, during which she got married and had kids. When she returned from her hiatus, fans where shocked to see how different she looked.
While Aguilera was proud of her curves, she decided that it was time to shed the weight again for her health and self esteem. She lost over 45 pounds, without liposuction, and is now back to her vixen ways.
When singer Jennifer Hudson first graced the stage of American Idol in 2004, she was a gorgeous full figured woman who could belt out a tune, no joke. From there, she landed an acting role that won her an Oscar and Golden Globe, while she was still plus sized.
But recognition of her talents wasn’t enough for Hudson. She needed to finally win the battle she’s always had against her weight. And she won, losing an impressive 80 pounds. She showed off her new figure in a bikini selfie. Nice job, Jennifer!
Rosie O’Donell, comedienne, actress and talk show host, has been on tv since 1984. She was a contestant on “Star Search”…remember that show? She once tipped the scales at over 200 lbs.
It was a heart attack when she was 50 years old that finally made her decide to lose the weight. With healthy eating and a little help from a gastric sleeve, O’Donnell lost 64 pounds. She claims to be more confident with her new look and loves the fact that she no longer has sleep apnea.
Actress and comedienne Melissa McCarthy has been fighting a lifelong battle against her weight, and the effects on her self-esteem have been hard for her to deal with. Fortunately, things have changed for her.
After obsessing less about the issue, McCarthy miraculously lost about 50 pounds. But it’s not the weight loss that has transformed her appearance — it’s her overall confidence that’s most attractive about her! Plus, her sense of taste has definitely made her a style icon as the name behind Seven7.
Once upon a time, Khloe Kardashian was content to remain in the shadows of her big sis, Kim. Sure, she took care of herself, but when you’re a Kardashian, that’s not enough.
And this is what happens when you break up with her. Nothing like revenge to motivate you! After separating from Lamar Odom, Khloe lost 35 lbs and gained a whole new look, all documented on Instagram and her book, “Strong Looks Better Naked.” Her secret? Personal trainer sessions every other day, clean eating and a skincare routine she follows with military precision. Oh yeah, and a team of stylists who’ve all been trained the Kardashian way.
You first saw Ricki Lake in the movie “Hairspray”, where she played the lead Tracy Turnblad. At the time, she was 200lbs, though that wasn’t at her heaviest. From there, she went on to play in a number of other movies and tv shows, before hosting her own show.
But then Lake lost 130lbs and has managed to keep it off. Along with her svelte figure, she’s also get a sleeker, sexier look that she loves.
The daughter of heavy metal guru Ozzy Osbourne, we first saw Kelly on the MTV reality show, “The Osbournes”. She definitely had a unique style of her own, but behind her attitude was someone constantly struggling with weight issues and all the baggage that goes along with it.
By 2010, and three stints in rehab, Osbourne was finally ready to reshape and revamp her look. Not only did she lose a ton of weight, she also ditched the punk/goth look for a more glamorous style, despite her purple locks. She’s now considered a trendsetter. What a transformation!
Within 18 months, Sparks managed to lose about 50 lbs with the help of a healthier diet and personal trainer. Along with the weight loss, she fixed up her ‘do and started wearing more flattering outfits that showed off her new figure.
When you come from a family that makes looking good a career, you have no choice but to follow suit. Kylie Jenner was only 10 when “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” first aired, and over the years, we’ve seen her go from a freckled face kid to now…
…an 18 year old makeup maven who has finally lived up to her name as a Kardashian. Of course she’s had lots of help, mainly from injectable fillers to plump up her lips.
Raven-Symons started out on “The Cosby Show” when she was only 3 years old. Since that time, she appeared on a number of other tv shows and so has always been in the public eye. We watched as she went from scrawny kid to “thick and fabulous”.
But she finally focused on getting back to healthy, which meant losing 70 lbs after she finished filming her hit tv show, “That’s So Raven!” Now she’s got a hot bod, longer loose locks and a more polished look.
Actress Blake Lively has been blessed with beautiful, natural looks, but before she was a “Gossip Girl”, she definitely did not look red carpet-worthy. She was more the girl next door.
But look at her now! Who knew with just a bit of makeup and a new hairdo, she could look this good? (And rumor has it that she got something done to her nose…)
Sarah Jessica Parker
Can you believe Sarah Jessica Parker has been acting since the mid 1970s, when she had an itty bitty role in the musical “The Sound of Music”? Being in the public eye for that long is a sure testament to her star power.
But with “Sex in the City”, Sarah Jessica Parker has transformed herself into the fashion icon she now is. No doubt she had to channel Carrie Bradshaw to do it.
January Jones was once a model for Abercrombie and Fitch, so she’s always had the ability to look the part.
It must have been “Mad Men” that helped Ms. Jones change into the bombshell she is now.
Artist Missy Elliot has always been known for her talent, only matched by her outrageous style. But along with her weight came health issues. She was also diagnosed with Graves Disease. Elliot decided to change after her doctors told her she needed to lose weight back in 2002. Plus, she was once quoted as saying, “The double chin’s not good for the red carpet.”
She definitely doesn’t have a double chin anymore. Elliot lost a whopping 70 lbs and fortunately hasn’t lost her unique style.
America Ferrera, star of “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” has always been confident with her look and size.
Now check Ferrera out. She’s lost weight and tamed her thick, frizzy waves. We love her new sleek and polished look.
When country singer Miranda Lambert was married to Blake Shelton, she was blissfully in love.
But right before her 30th birthday, she lost weight 25 pounds, and after splitting with Shelton, Lambert continued to shed the weight and went platinum — literally. Her new hairstyle is a testament to her album of the same name.
Socialite Nicole Richie, daughter of singer Lionel Richie, was once besties with Paris Hilton..remember “The Simple Life”? Back then, she was a wild party girl who definitely looked the part.
Look at her now. She’s lost a little weight, straightened her hair and is now on the fashion A-list.
Singer and occasional actress, Janet Jackson, has had many, many highs and lows throughout her career. That’s bound to happen, considering she’s been in the ‘biz for over 40 years!
But then, as always, she’s managed to rise up out of the ashes and re-establish herself as pop icon.
Journalist, talk show host, entrepreneur and businesswoman extraordinaire, Oprah Winfrey has always needed to look good. After all, she’s always worked in front of the camera, attracting leagues of admirers around the world.
This is one woman who seems to get younger with age. Weight loss and a whole new look — all we can say is wow!
