21 Celebrity Looks From 2005 That Are Shockingly Still Cool Today — PHOTOS
11 years ago, in 2005 celebrities were sporting current fashion trends that you could maybe see in present day Vogue. While 2005 was within the era of terrifying fashion, there were a few hidden gems amidst the frosted tips, tie-on halters, and platform flip flops, a few of which are found here.
Those hidden gems were translated to some of 2016's biggest trends: cut out dresses, metallics, bobs, chokers, smokey eyes, et cetera. Nowadays we see the metamorphoses of these Oscars and Golden Globes dresses on the likes of celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Jennifer Lawrence. Recycled fashion is common practice amongst designers as long as there is a new twist to each design.
This being said, it is nice thinking that we can look back at fashion over the years and see continuity (or the opposite) in both clothing and beauty trends. Maybe the best part of pieces like this is knowing that maybe you really can save that corduroy button-up mini skirt for the next decade! But seriously, that look is not going to last forever, fashion fans.
Therefore, without further ado, here's a look into 2005 for all your fashionable nostalgia:
1. Cut Out Dresses
Mischa Barton wore side cut-outs before you. Take that, fashion world.
2. A Little Sparkle
Catalina Sandino Moreno shows us how to rock a LWD.
3. Marilyn Monroe-Esque Red Lips
Scarlet Johansson is literally the new Marilyn. That red lip has been goals for over a decade.
4. Smoky-Eyed Glam
Drew Barrymore is smoky and stunning. Plus, with her brunette locks she looks totally different.
Gisele Bundchen may not married to Tom Brady here, but her beachy ombre mermaid hair still remains gorgeous.
6. Dramatic Back
Hilary Swank is a million dollar baby in this awesome blue body-con, and the open back shows off her lovely back. With the rise of sheer and near scandalous outfits, celebs have gotten adventurous.
7. Shimmery Mermaid Dresses
Beyonce rocks metallics. That shine is so 2016.
8. The Bob
Kirsten Dunst rocks a lacy black dress with an amazingly fashion forward bob. As a fellow-bob-er, I love it.
9. Mermaid Dresses
Charlize Theron also rocks a bob before "2015: The Year of Bobs" and kills with a different version of a peplum.
10. The Sleek Pony
Portia de Rossi resembles a present day Gigi Hadid with her sleek and slicked pony. What a model look!

12. The '70s
Lindsay Lohan was amazing in this '70s inspired Dream Girls look at the AMAs.
13. Hoop Earrings
Rihanna's insanely large hoops at the World Music Awards are making a comeback. But, maybe just not that big.
Beyonce's stacked bangles will probably never go out of style.
Hilary Duff looks great in rich, red, velvet at the Teen Choice Awards. You can thank Adele for always bringing velvet back.
16. Jean Skirts
Hillary Burton as Peyton Sawyer in One Tree Hill was a queen of the jean skirts. This past year we saw the style come back.
Emmy Rossum at the Critics Choice Awards rocks the sultry slip dress. This will be a runway trend we'll see for a while!
18. Cool Hair Designs
Gwen Stefani and Pharrell at the AMAs both donned menswear, but Stefani looked better. The blazer is a key staple of any modern woman's wardrobe.
20. The Bump-it
Paris Hilton and Katy Perry both share a bumpin' secret called the Bump-it. It's been a while, old friend.
21. Kate Moss In Hunter Boots
Kate Moss is stylish wherever and whenever. Also, Hunter Boots are pretty much the only rain boots anyone wears ever these days, myself included!
