Oscars’ Biggest Stars Before They Were Superstars

On Sunday night, we watched as our favorite stars graced the red carpet at the Academy Awards, held at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles. Sketches of more than memorable designs from our favorite style icons lined the red carpet, paying homage to the superstars that made fashion what it is today. From classic stars like Katherine Zeta-Jones and Nicole Kidman to newer ones like Jennifer Lawrence and Amanda Seyfried, everyone brought their fashion A-game! As I was watching as each star was interviewed, I thought to myself, “I wonder what he/she looked like before they were famous?” I did a little digging and found pictures of these superstars before they were bedazzled on the red carpet. Enjoy!
