9 Celebs That Grew Up To Be Fashionable

We all have our awkward years growing up, where we don’t really know how exactly to act or dress, where it’s hard to tell what is “cool.” Some people (me) never get past it, but others grow beyond their dorkiness and end up looking pretty damn good. If you are feeling like you aren’t cool yet, take a look at these celebs. They may not have been fashion icons in school, but they seem to be doing pretty well now!

 

Selena Gomez

Sure, she was an adorable little girl, but can we talk about that dress? Are those lapels? Sleeves? WHAT ARE THEY?

Here’s Selena in 2013. Lookin’ good, girl. Selena has actually become so stylish, she’s the brand ambassador for the Adidas NEO Label . That’s like peak level of stylishness.

Ryan Gosling

This picture is really, really 90’s. All it needs is a Super Nintendo and the Spice Girls.

Your girlfriend would break up with you to go out with this picture. Not Gosling himself, but the actual .jpg.

Bruno Mars

I think every young man goes through his two-t-shirts-and-a-jean jacket phase.

Now Bruno looks like a time traveler from the 50’s, but in a good way.

Emma Watson

From an early age Emma’s clearly been talented in the acting department, but as you can see in this picture from 2001, she hasn’t always been the best at picking out pants.

These days Emma is pretty much flawless. Do you think she would be my friend?

George Clooney

Whoa, George. When was that haircut EVER cool? You kind of look like Edna “E” Mode from The Incredibles here.

Hayden Panettiere

Hayden, what is going on here? Are those newspaper pants? Since when did kids like newspapers?

Ok, see what happens when you lose the newspaper pants. You get on magazine covers and TV shows. Say no to newspaper pants.

Taylor Lautner

They say the camera adds ten pounds, but it seems like all ten of those extra pounds when to his pant legs. Also, he kind of, maybe a little, looks like he stole that shirt from a Best Buy employee.

Lesson to all: wear pants that fit.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Oh hey, it's a bright blue suit. It's like they skinned a smurf and made it into a jacket for the Backstreet Boys.

OK now you are on the cover of GQ. There's hope for us all

Much better Taylor. Hopefully you and that old hair style are never, ever getting back together. Like ever.
