If you made me a celebrity tomorrow and then told me that I had to figure out a way to dress in acceptable famous person attire, I'm not sure how I would handle it. Luckily, no one really becomes famous overnight — transforming into a bonafide celebrity takes years of hard work, reality show appearances, and, on occasion, actual talent. And over the course of those years, celebrities' styles are bound to change to conform to the Hollywood standard — at least, that's what happened to these famous faces. Check out the photos of celebrities who were completely made over by Hollywood. 

Kim Kardashian, 2006

Kardashian’s style was more appropriate for walking around the mall than the red carpet. (Then again, it was the mid-2000s. Everyone looked like we were going to the mall.)

Kim Kardashian, 2014

You can thank Hollywood’s fashion influence, but the guy you might want to really applaud for Kardashian’s stunning style is her husband, Kanye West. 

Taylor Swift, 2006

Swift started her days on the country scene, hence the cute cowboy boots. I still miss her curly blonde locks, too. 

Taylor Swift, 2014

The perpetually well-dressed singer (whose now ventured into the pop world) could double as a fashion model. Maybe it’s because she hangs out with so many. 

Katy Perry, 2006

When Perry first broke out on the music scene, she had a strong passion for vintage finds. 

Katy Perry, 2014

Perry’s looks are still vintage inspired, but she’s hyped up the glitz. 

Gwen Stefani, 2004

Stefani (and her rock hard abs) led the No Doubt with a cool style that mostly involved a lot of crop tops and arm bands. 

Gwen Stefani, 2014

She still has an edgy style, but the Voice judge went high fashion with her L.A.M.B. line. 

Beyonce, 2001

Beyonce wore a lot of printed pants in the early ’00s. 

Beyonce, 2014

Beyonce looks flawless in sparkles. And in everything. Forever. Always. 

Nicole Richie, 2003

Never forget that Richie once wore this pink tube dress with combat boots. Sign it was the early ’00s? The L.A.M.B. bag that everyone had on her shoulder. 

Nicole Richie, 2014

The star of Candidly Nicole no longer does tacky. 

Blake Lively, 2005

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants star looked 100 percent teenage Californian girl. 

Blake Lively, 2005

The fashion icon was clearly influenced by the fashion of Hollywood — she allegedly doesn’t use a stylist!

Selena Gomez, 2007

The once Disney Channel darling now has a far more grownup style. 

Selena Gomez, 2014

She’s moved into more adult acting roles and style. 

Rihanna, 2004

The Barbados beauty had a sweet style as a teenage rising star. 

Rihanna, 2014

“Bad Girl RiRi” has seriously edged up her style along with her music, so much so that she once wore a translucent diamond dress on the red carpet. (Pictured above.) 

Kristen Stewart, 2004

Stewart looked like every other teenager when she walked the red carpet in 2004. (But that hair? AMAZING.) 

Kristen Stewart, 2014

Stewart shows off her personal flair on the red carpet. (And that hair? Still amazing.) 

Angelina Jolie, 2001

Jolie had a significantly edgier style on the red carpet in the early ’00s, and this was before she started wearing a vial of Billy Bob Thornton’s blood around her neck. 

Angelina Jolie, 2014

The A-list actress, philanthropist, and mother to a whole bunch of kids has a far more traditional Hollywood style these days, but never forget the cool leather strapless number she wore to the premiere of Maleficent. Because as much as Hollywood can change a celebrity, their personal style always comes through.
