Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face.
The 10 best makeover moments
Just how much impact can a makeover make? Life-changing, apparently – just look how far these celebrities have come with their dramatic makeovers over the years…
ANGELINA JOLIE: FROM GOTH TO GLAM
Once upon a time you could count on Angelina to bring a little weird to the red carpet, mostly during her marriage to Billy Bob Thornton. Nowadays, she’s a lot more glamour-puss than gothic, sporting Brad Pitt on her arm.
CINDERELLA: RAGS TO RICHES
Disney’s take on the makeover moment comes courtesy of a Fairy Godmother and a little magic, taking Cinderella from poor servant girl to princess material – if only until the stroke of midnight!
AUDREY HEPBURN IN FUNNY FACE
Jo, Audrey’s bookish leading lady, is convinced by Quality magazine to be made over into the season’s fashion plate, but we think the ‘before’ is as good as the ‘after’, with designs by legendary costumers Hubert de Givenchy and Edith Head.
GRACE KELLY: A HOLLYWOOD PRINCESS
Grace Kelly was already Hollywood royalty when she met Prince Rainier III of Monaco. A year later, they were married and Grace became a bona fide princess – her impeccable wardrobe was largely the same, but with an added tiara.
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE: FROM BOY-BAND TO GENTLEMAN
Having spent his early years in the risky fashions favoured by ‘N Sync, Justin’s fashion faux pas included double denim and bleached curls. Today with his solo career, he has embraced a more mature style – leaving boyhood blunders behind.
MICHELLE WILLIAMS: THE GIRL NEXT DOOR
She first found fame as teenager Jen on Dawson’s Creek , but when Michelle Williams cropped her hair into a pixie cut, it singled her out as a grown-up style icon and an inspiration for many short-haired ladies.
NICOLE RICHIE’S NOT-SO-SIMPLE LIFE
Her style shifted radically from The Simple Life’s logo bags and purple Uggs, to a more demure, elegant vibe. Nicole Richie’s makeover was thanks in part to stylist Rachel Zoe, who has taught many starlets the basics of boho-chic and beyond.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON: FROM EMO TO SEXY
Growing up in the public eye means your style is sure to evolve drastically. Avid watchers saw Scarlett Johansson move from awkward indie teenager around 2000 to the red-carpet bombshell she is today.
SOLANGE GETS SOME STREET CRED
It took her a little while to step out of her sister’s shadow, but when she did, Solange became a genuine style star, noted for her love of prints and more adventurous designers than even Beyoncé might dare to wear.
VICTORIA BECKHAM: WAG NO MORE
First she was a Spice Girl; then she embodied the 2000s WAG (“wives and girlfriends” of football players) stereotype in jumbo sunnies and bodycon dresses. Now she has proved her style credentials by reinventing herself as a designer to be reckoned with, and an icon too.
