Long before they were cool musicians, most of these celebs were dorky kids just like you and me — and we’ve got the proof. This selection of junior high and high school photos from some of the world’s top musicians confirms that even the most jaded rockstar was probably kind of a dweeb when they were younger. Which begs the question: Can you match the nerdy class pic with the famous face?
You guys, I found this awesome show. It’s called “Girls” and it’s really underground, I keep Googling it and nothing comes up! But seriously, Allison Williams is a total babe, nepotism be damned. This Donna Karan gown is the perfect neon fuchsia shade to stand out in, even when everyone else is wearing pink, too. The patent nude pumps nod to the dress’s lining of the same shade, a detail that could otherwise go ignored. Add fresh, glowy skin, unfussy hair, and a sheer pink lip to the equation, not to mention those insane (diamond?!) earrings, and I think it’s safe to say that this hot new face totally killed it.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is professionally hot, but her attempts to cross over into the acting realm have been tenuous. After all, she never really sold herself as an actress, just a model who — surprise! — happens to be both excruciatingly good-looking and decent enough at following directions, which was more than good enough for Michael Bay. Rosie’s next foray is into the design sphere with a lingerie collection to be distributed by British high street giant Marks & Spencer. Not-so-serendipitously, she already models for the brand’s Autograph intimates line, so her branch of it is simply a “natural extension” of Rosie’s relationship with the retailer. The collection, which she will be the face of, will be called Rosie for Autograph and consists of 33 pieces, including bras, panties, camisoles, and kimonos. The items will have a pink rose motif, which is only intuitive for someone called Rosie. A stroke of genius, I say. [NYMag.com]
Add Courtney Stodden to the list of celebs who are proudly going sans fards. The inexplicably famous teen bride kicked off her lucite heels and scrubbed away the heavy-duty eyeliner and frosted lipgloss for a bare-faced bathtub photo shoot. Only a stubborn layer of spray tan remained! Verdict: I think she should lose the makeup for good. Dare I say she actually looks close to her reported age? Check out more photos of Courtney without makeup — but with trademark duck lips, natch — over at Celebuzz. [Photo: Coleman-Rayner]
