Elizabeth Hurley, Before

Long before she stepped into the spotlight, Liz Hurley epitomized the '80s with wispy bangs, a scrunchie—and a pair of Brooke Shields-esque eyebrows.

Hurley proves that a pair of tweezers can add instant polish. Losing the scrunchie didn't hurt either.

Nicole Kidman, Before

In the '80s, an era when mousse reigned as a styler, Nicole Kidman's curls appeared more puffy than polished.

Taming her waves elevated Kidman's style, taking her from cute to enviably chic.

Heidi Klum, Before

Klum is gorgeous, but this hue turned her into just another pretty face.

Klum went blonde and never looked back. Can you blame her? Golden locks flatter her skin tone and bring out a luminous glow.

Gwen Stefani, Before

Acid-pink hair preceded Stefani's signature platinum-blonde 'do. We give her points for audacity...

Proof that you can look glamorous and stay loyal to your edgy punk-rocker vibe. The platinum shade's her staple, but the voluminous corkscrews? Unexpected and playful—just as we'd expect from the singer.

Jennifer Hudson, Before

We love her confident stance and pretty smile, but this dress does nothing to flatter Hudson's curves.

With toned gams like that, we see no reason why Hudson shouldn't rock a shimmering mini-dress.

Sarah Jessica Parker, Before

The harsh contrast between dark brown roots and light blonde hair makes a persuasive case for touch-up color.

SJP still rocks her roots, but the darker honey hue makes for a more flattering look.

Victoria Beckham, Before

Healthy glow this is not. The leathery, fake-baked look ages Beckham by fifteen years.

Beckham loses her orange cast and actually looks younger and prettier.

Nicole Richie, Before

The absurd hair color(s). The inch-long roots. The out-to-there eyelashes. We want to give her a hug and a Clarisonic scrub brush.

Nicole Richie, After

Between the feminine bangs and classic chignon, Nicole Richie channels a blonde, modern-day Audrey Hepburn.

Teri Hatcher, Before

Ribs on display do nothing to complement Hatcher's figure, which is so famous that it garnered its own Seinfeld episode.

A strong, toned body trumps shapeless skinny any day. Hatcher also gets the "Most Improved Style" award.

Madonna, Before

From the looks of it, the queen of reinvention herself didn't consider using tweezers.

Now, the Material Girl is polished and poised. Her brows are groomed to perfection—as is the rest of her look.
