The bowl cuts! The overalls! Celebs’ retro throwback photos that make us laugh every time
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.
MELISSA JOAN HART
Reese asked her Instagram followers to caption this photo of her at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party in 1997, so we came up with one option: 😘
The chic journalist was a style star way back in the ’90s. Tamron shared a photo working the earring counter (her specailty!) at her first job at Magnum jewelry. “Best sales person on the street,” she wrote.
The supermodel celebrated #ThrowbackTyTy — her version of TBT — by posting a shot of herself at a Todd Oldham fashion show wearing a custom spray painted T-shirt. Turns out, she still has the top in her closet!
As evidenced from her side-swept bangs and killer braid, Kyle’s hair has always been her signature. But she says her eyebrows were unfortunately “not on fleek” back in 1989.
The actress’s trend-setting days started way back in 1998 when she hit the red carpet for Halloween H2O wearing what she says was “the season’s hottest accessories, visible tan lines and a general look of confusion.”
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND MANDY MOORE
In case you couldn’t tell by her Esprit logo T-shirt and printed Bermuda shorts, this was the ’80s and Reese was a trendsetter already.
Kate traces her boho-themed outfit to her mom’s role in Hair, and notes that she tried in vain to fight the paisley with some styling touches of her own.
This is proof Julianne was a full-blown fashionista since she was five years old, calling this fuzzy leopard coat her “all time” favorite. “Even Derek [Hough] saw this picture and said… oh my gosh I remember that coat! Before saying anything about the beautiful red rocks behind us!”
This may look like any old crewneck sweater, but it’s actually an iconic ’80s momento. Charlie explains in his throwback pic that he let Tom Cruise borrow it to wear on a date with his Risky Business co-star Rebecca De Mornay back in 1982.
Another early pioneer in the field of fierce hair? The Victoria’s Secret model, who called her side pony “on point.”
For anyone going through growing pains, just remember even Victoria’s Secret Angels endured pre-braces, cut-your-own-bangs days too. “#Nevergiveuphope, she captioned her throwback.
CINDY CRAWFORD & LINDA EVANGELISTA
Didn’t know Cindy and Linda moonlighted as professional figure skaters in their runway heyday? It was news to us, too!
KIM & KOURTNEY KARDASHIAN
Pro: He was an adorable teen. Con: He posed the open-ended caption: “Under the kilt I wore…”
EMMA ROBERTS & DYLAN PENN
That’s Emma and Dylan as “little doodle brains” (as Emma affectionately put it!) with some on-point headband style sense.
According to the supermodel’s throwback pic, the beauty vibe backstage at this particular Paris runway show in 1994 was “Who needs a hairbrush when you’ve got Chanel?” Can’t really argue with that.
That’s the face of a “happy” and “confident” SNL superstar lookalike. “I chose to look like Chris Farley and am proud of that,” the actress captioned her Insta.
