They have graced magazine covers, billboards, and are known by millions of fans for their beauty.
But even this batch of picture-perfect stars had some pretty questionable looks early in their careers.
While some are unrecognizable in their current form, others have changed little over the years.
From outlandish catwalk twists to photo shoots that would make your grandma blush, these stars certainly paid their dues on their path to fame and fortune.
MailOnline takes a look at some of the photos the stars don’t want you to see.
A long time ago: Rosie Huntington-Whitley looks positively unrecognizable in this snap taken at a Bora Aksu fashion show during London Fashion Week in 2004 when she was 17.

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley became widely known when she landed the role of Shia LaBeouf’s love interest in Transformers: Dark of the Moon in 2011.
But the 36-year-old Plymouth native had already been working as a model for years at that point, starting at age 16 in a commercial for Levi’s jeans.

The star sported a baby face at the time along with a mane of voluminous blonde curls.
Rosie has come a long way since her runway beginnings and now runs her own makeup and skincare brand.
Wow: Although she found fame as a singer, Geri Horner would have given any girl on Page 3 a run for her money with this sassy snap.
Although she found fame as a singer, Geri Horner would have given any girl on Page 3 a chance with this raunchy snap.
The 51-year-old hitmaker left little to the imagination in the photo shoot taken early in her career, where she donned a dangerously low corset.
Putting on a leggy display in a pair of black stilettos, Geri’s famous strands of flaming hair were nowhere to be seen as she sported a mane of dark brown hair instead.
Looking almost unrecognizable in the shot, the Spice Girls star completed the look with a bold red lipstick.
Pout: In 1981, 18-year-old Demi donned a daring cut-out black minidress while sitting on a box in this quirky photo shoot.
Demi Moore showed it all off in the 1996 movie Striptease and pocketed $12.5 million for it.
But years before she stripped out of the outfit for what was a then-record salary for an actress, Demi, 60, was testing the waters with some fantastic glam shoots.
Way back in 1981, 18-year-old Demi donned a daring cutout black minidress while sitting on a box.
Running her hands through her brunette locks, the actress fixed the camera with her best sultry gaze.
While Demi probably isn’t a fan of this particular photo these days, she can take solace in the fact that only a few years later she became one of the biggest stars of the ’80s as a member of the acting group the Brat Pack. .
Sexy: Though she got her big break in the 1995 thriller Hackers, Angelina, 48, was trying her hand at modeling in the years before she found success.
Long celebrated as one of the most beautiful women in the world, Angelina Jolie has had plenty of experience posing on camera.
Although she got her big break in the 1995 thriller Hackers, Angelina, 48, was trying her hand as a teen model in the years before she found success.
The Oscar winner appeared in music videos and short films in the early ’90s before finding fame and posed for this particular photo shoot when he was 18 in 1993.
Meant to be taken in London, the snap shows Angelina in a black midi dress as she pouts her best for the camera.
Just a few years later, Angelina had become one of the most promising young stars in Hollywood.
We all have to start somewhere.
Throwback: Carol Vorderman showed quite the glamorous figure in this promo still shot in December 1987 when she was 26 years old.
Unlike some stars who have to work for years before reaching success, Carol Vorderman landed her spot hosting Countdown at the tender age of 22.
The 62-year-old TV presenter cut quite the glamorous figure in this promo still taken in December 1987 when she was 26 years old.
The star slipped into a strapless patterned dress with black gloves while wearing her locks in a slicked-back style.
Striking a quirky, half-kneeling pose, Carol completed her look with a silver necklace and jeweled earrings.
Carol has come a long way since her early days as a model and was recently featured on the cover of the Daily Mail’s You magazine earlier this year.
