Keep scrolling to see rare vintage celebrity photos from Ariana Grande to Emma Stone and many more, as we’ve compiled some from the early years of their careers. Some of them are entirely unrecognizable, while others haven’t changed a bit.
In this photo, Jennifer Lopez was posing for a Los Angeles portrait session in 1992. The global icon got her first break on the big screen in 1997. Before that, she looks completely different and has a simple style. Her face has an innocent beauty, and we totally dig the baggy pants. She played ‘Selena’ in the Latino singer’s biopic and even got nominated for a Golden Globe. The star never looked back after gaining stardom. She has also ventured into the music industry, coming to the Latin Pop Movement’s forefront in the American music scene.
Ariana Grande starred in the Broadway Cast of 13 in 2008. This rare picture is from when the cast visited Planet Hollywood in New York City. Her curly hair and kohl-rimmed eyes completely transform her look. At first glance, you cannot even tell she is Ariana. Her big toothy smile and laid-back tee-shirt make her look really adorable. The popstar became popular in 2013 with her first album ‘Yours Truly’. Since then, she has received multiple awards throughout her career, including one Grammy Award.
At the time of this photo, Blake Lively made an appearance at the Nickelodeon kids choice awards in 2015. She still sports blonde hair, and it seems like not much has changed about her since then. She got a major breakthrough while playing Serena Van Der Woodsen in ‘Gossip Girl’ from 2007 to 2012. Blake has received several accolades throughout her acting career. The actress has come a long way in terms of beauty transformation, and now she can slay any red carpet in merely a tinted moisturizer.
