Everyone has that one photo that they look back on and think: "What the hell was I thinking? How was that possibly in style? WHY DID I PIERCE THAT?!?" If your name happens to be Christina Aguilera, you probably have hundreds of thousands of photos where you think those thoughts. 

There's no denying that Aguilera is — and always has been — an unbelievable talent, but even she might cringe at some of these photos. After all, they in no way reflect the polished, lovely style that this lady is rocking today. Check out these photos of Aguilera from the early 00s that we're sure Aguilera is laughing about today. 

The Skinny Brows

Remember when full brows were every woman’s enemy and penciled in brows became the alternative? I am thrilled this is no longer a thing. 

The "Is This A Shirt?!?" Shirt

I will never understand how this top works. 

The Black and White Everything Look

Matching your hair to your outfit is always a risky move. 

This Hat

There’s a lot happening with that hat. 

The Trio Pic

To be fair, she does not have that weird eye thing that Pink is rocking. 

The Strategically Placed Necklace

Girl, we see them. 

The Bumble Bee

I used to think this look was the coolest thing ever, so I totally get why Aguilera did. But, alas… we were both wrong. 

Mini Marilyn

Kind of love the hair, actually. 


Remember when Aguilera had black hair? Now you do. 

Dancing With Another Star

She looks like Julianne Hough in this one, no?!?

Disappearing Act


The Missing Housemate from the 'Jersey Shore?'

That’s a lot of tanner. 

Busting A Move In A Bustier

So that happened. 

Channeling A Black Eyed Pea

Getting soulful while rocking a very Fergie ponytail. 

More Hats!

Ahh, yes. The military hat. 

Rolling Stone

Everyone owned Rolling Stone memorabilia back in the day. 

Middle-part madness


Makeup Forever

Yep, Aguilera certainly wore enough makeup to this MAC event. 

Blushing Beauty

There is so much pink here I cannot even. 

Oh Wow

I dig the fuchsia lip, actually.
