Then and Now: 20 Must See Photos of Celebrity Transformations

So, There are a lot of articles/presentations/blog posts on this topic but I wanted to create the ultimate list of celebrities with their photos from long ago, in comparison to how they look today. I sailed the entire world-wide web to find these unforgettable photos. Now, lets take a walk down memory lane, shall we? Here are some of our favorite celebrities way back then and today.

1. Jessica & Ashley Simpson

Look at those poofy bangs! I bet their dresses are poofy too, because this was likely taken in the late 80’s, when fashion was cringe-worthy. Still a cute picture though!

2. Donald Trump

This is not fake news! This is POTUS back in the day. WAY back in the day and then of course more recent photos. He was quite a hunk as a young man!

6. Aaron Carter

I dreamt about being Aaron Carter’s girlfriend for the majority of my childhood. Now that I am an adult, not so much. But that’s ok. To be fair, he has recently gained some weight and it looking pretty good. Check out his Twitter for recent photos!

10. Patrick Dempsey

We know him as “McDreamy” or “Derek” (If you haven’t seen Grey’s Anatomy, drop everything now and watch it!) Before he was McDreamy, he was McNerdy and it’s adorable. (Notice the super old-school Adidas T-shirt, haha).

12. Taylor Swift

Before she was shaking it off, crying on her guitar, and making sparks fly, she was a normal kid. An adorable one, who just happens to be rockin’ a late 90’s hairstyle.
