“Ch-ch-changes, turn and face the strange.”
Time is a measure of change, but in the past 10 years, some celebrities have changed so much that it seems like a lot more time has gone by. In the case of the younger Hollywood denizens, passing through puberty has made for alterations to their faces and physiques, but for others, interventions of an entirely different kind means they’re almost unrecognizable today.
Improved hairstyles, contoured makeup, and upgraded wardrobes have also contributed to adjustments that celebrities like Victoria Beckham and Rihanna have undergone. In fact, some look better now than they did 10 years ago! In curating this feature, we flipped back to 2009 to do some side-by-side comparisons, showcasing the celebrities that have radically altered their looks – for better or (sometimes) worse.
