Celeb Style and Beauty TBTs That Blew Our Minds
The bowl cuts! The overalls! Celebs’ retro throwback photos that make us laugh every time
Kyra Sedgwick & Kevin Bacon
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has always loved a statement hairstyle, as seen in this adorable throwback.
The designer reminisced on old fashions and friendship, posting three photos from his days as a student at High School of Art and Design in New York City, circa 1979. "Dressed in my favorite red velour sweatshirt by Enrico Coveri," Jacobs wrote in the Instagram caption of the throwback pics.
The supermodel went super-deep in the archive to find this throwback pic of herself at 14 years old, wearing a yellow crop top, pink pants and already serving some serious model posing.
Looks like Brad was born with an eye for fashion! The stylist (who works with stars like Kaley Cuoco, Jenna Dewan and Sarah Hyland) shared a school picture on Instagram with the caption, “Baby Brad mixing prints even in Kindergarten. #tbt”
The actresses shared a photo of herself sporting shaggy short hair and denim overalls while standing next to a balloon with the words “break a leg” written in all capital letters. "TBH, I'd wear this entire outfit today” she captioned the pic, adding two hashtag #foreveratheatrekid and #tbt.
Should the actress bring back her cute bangs and teeny, tiny fanny pack? We think, yes!
The This Is Us star shared a #FBF from her freshman homecoming look in 1998, revealing that she had the "BIGGEST crush" on her date and that, yes, "someone was paid to make my hair look like that."
The actress blessed her Instagram followers with this precious snapshot of her rocking an "eight dollar haircut" she got as a child.
"Too cute for words 😍," pal Reese Witherspoon commented on the sweet shot.
"Cutest ever—that bowl cut!!!!" journalist Lisa Ling added.
Jaleel White & Candace Cameron Bure
"I’m just gonna leave this #TBT pic right here..." Cameron casually captioned this amazing throwback of herself, rocking fluffy bangs, and White, showing off his pearly whites while wearing a retainer.
Dylan & Cole Sprouse
"The drip has always been legendary as you can see," Dylan Sprouse captioned this twinning pic with his brother Cole.
The actress knew even back then that denim on denim never goes out of style.
The model posted this super cute mom-and-daughter throwback to show off her flowing curls and totally chic polka dot dress when hubby John Legend and others pointed out how much little Teigen looks like Teigen and Legend's daughter Luna.
"we came. to slay. @pepperthai2," Teigen captioned her photo, tagging her mother Vilailuck Teigen's Instagram handle.
Legend responded by writing, "It's Luna!!"
Singer Melanie Fiona added, "Omg!! It’s Luna’s entire face!!!!!! 😍😍😍."
"if anything .... she’s consistent," the singer tweeted alongside a photo of her rocking her signature high pony as a little girl.
This vintage photo of Mendes and her sisters proves that the actress has not aged at all — not even a little bit.
Before Marc Jacobs dressed celebrities like Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus, the fashion designer rocked a shoulder-length winged hair ‘do. He shared his retro hairstyle on Instagram with three photos of old ID cards: his Paris metro card, his Parsons student ID and his international student ID card. Each picture features a wavy bob – a departure from his current short cut.
For #fbf, Rachel Zoe reminisces on the curly beach hair she had as a 19-year-old brunette, and says she was “living her best self” then.
Kim Kardashian West
By 7th grade, Kim Kardashian already had a signature beauty look. "This was my go to lipstick," she writes about her bold rep lip. "It’s gotta make a comeback."
Before the actor and athleisure icon took an appreciation for '70s style Adidas tracksuits (he has 70 of them to be exact!), he experiemented with his look even more. Hammer dyed his hair blue, showing that the early aughts were a very experimental time for fashion trends.
"Good Lord, why didn't anyone tell me this was a bad idea?! Thank you mom (@druhammer) for puttin up with me. And by the way, the early 2000s, fashion wise, were rough. #dodgerblue."
RACHEL ZOE AND BACKSTREET BOYS
The celebrity stylist has dressed anyone who's anyone in Hollywood. Need proof? She even dressed the Backstreet Boys in their iconic oversize matching outfits from their Millenium days.
She may be married to one of the best basketball players in the game (Miami Heat's Dwyane Wade) but she has been a "baller" player herself since she was 12 years old. "Runnin point since 84'," she captioned her #TBT photo.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County star flashed back to her Syracuse sorority days, when she teased every inch of her hair and favored dresses with major bows.
KIM KARDASHIAN WEST
Here's photographic proof that Gabrielle's always been a cool girl. Back in the day she had feathered bangs, a popped collar, "gleaming" braces and the two-face '80s school picture.
The model took a trip down memory lane by sharing a #TBT of her first-ever cover shoot 44 years ago. "I remember thinking, 'a bathing suit! Oh no! No pockets! What do I do with my hands? Oh wait now a STRANGER is going to kiss my neck? I have a boyfriend,'" the star recalled. "I nervous giggled the whole shot."
JENNA DEWAN TATUM
Jenna celebrated #throwbackthursday with a photo of her cheerleading days, wearing her Grapevine High uniform.
The stylist made his first trip to Paris in 2002 a fashionable one, "werking" highlighted hair, glossy lips and Dior shades.
All John can say about the "soil me" T-shirt he wore with his high school bandmates in 1995 is: "I was an interesting boy."
RASHIDA JONES AND TRACEE ELLIS ROSS
This photo is official proof that these two have not aged a day in 18 years.
Reese credits her cami-and-choker-wearing, twisted bun hairstyle days to Gwen Stefani. "I’m pretty sure you are to blame for this fashion inspiration," she told Gwen on Instagram.
