  • See our favourite A-listers in their awkward teenage years because, well, why not?

    Oh it’s good to know that our favourite A-listers were once awkward teens just like the rest of us, isn’t it?

    That even the always elegant goddesses like Angelina Jolie and Beyonce had the odd fashion fail growing up? And that, no matter how big their glam squads may be these days, stars like Katy Perry and Blake Lively have all had their fair share of dodgy haircuts, just like you and I?

    Yes from Sarah Jessica Parker to Miranda Kerr, we’ve scoured the Instagram throwbacks and delved into the red carpet archives to pull together the best pictures of our favourite celebs when they were teens. We’re talking mullet cuts, ‘vintage’ fashion choices, 80s perms, the works. And that’s all just on Brad Pitt.

    Do you think Leonardo DiCaprio?s mum cut around a mixing bowl to get that mop? And who told Queen Bey that those tinted shades were on trend?

    Chart how many of our favourite A-listers had braces before they got those Hollywood smiles, and make up your own mind whether they were born with their impeccable fashion sense, or whether a super stylist or two may have helped them along the way.
