The best/only common denominator between celebrities and myself is that we’ve all gone through that painfully awkward stage. You know the one. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: There’s nothing like a good throwback to keep you humble. Every time I get on Instagram I see another picture of Kylie Jenner wearing more makeup to the grocery store than I wore to my senior prom and all I can think is “I’ve seen the old Keeping Up episodes, I know who you really are!!!!”. With that being said, there is nothing that makes me happier than seeing the most perfect of celebs in braces and Juicy Couture tracksuits (I still own three. No shame.)
BadGalRiRi is the queen of the world as far as I’m concerned, but she sure has come a long way.
I’m glad to know Bey rocked the tank layered over the long sleeved tee too. TBH I lived in this look from grades 4-6.
You’re lying if you say you didn’t get your hair cornrowed on your family’s cruise to Jamaica.
Digging the Raman Noodles hair and the sweet shades. You do you, JT.
Legend has it, a fan accidentally poked her finger on Taylor’s spiky locks and they were so sharp she was rushed to the hospital. Fact check me, it’s a true story.
Honestly, this is the worst picture I could find of Chase Crawford and I would still date him in half a heartbeat, Abercrombie baseball tee and all.
And FINALLY. The holy grail of celebrity throwbacks. Never forget where you came from, people.
And since I’m all about leveling the playing field, here’s a quick share of a moment I’m definitely not proud of. Don’t dish it if you can’t take it.
Glad to know they all survived The Awkward Stage, and hey, they’re probably a better person because of it. I know I am. Sidenote: I basically went to the edge of the Earth (i.e. the internet) to find a truly awkward photo of Blake Lively and still found nothing. So in case you were wondering, the answer is yes, she’s always been perfect.
