It’s hard to believe, but 21 years have already passed since the year 2000. The 00s was a colorful era that brought us numerous vivid images, especially of celebrities. Today, when we look at the photos from that time, we get nostalgic and can remember what trends were at their peak back then and what tricks the celebrities used to emphasize their individuality.
We at StateOfBuzz Articles decided to compare how some stars have changed since then and came to the conclusion that some of them are simply unrecognizable in their former looks.
1. Ariana Grande (2009 vs 2021)
Grande was born on June 26, 1993, in Boca Raton, Florida, the daughter of Edward Butera, a graphic designer, and Joan Grande, a businesswoman. She began singing and acting at a young age and found her way into the local theater scene before she was a teenager. Her first big break came in 2008, when the 15-year-old landed the role of Charlotte in the Broadway production of 13, a play about growing up in New York City. The early role led to accolades, and Grande won a National Youth Theatre Association Award.
Two years later, she appeared in the musical Cuba Libre and had a small role on the television show The Battery’s Down.
2. Paris Hilton (2004 vs 2021)
Paris Hilton attracted media attention after the release of a sex tape in 2003.
After her role in The Simple Life, Paris received a Teen Choice Award for her performance in the movie House of Wax, and her first book, Confessions of An Heiress, landed on the New York Times bestseller list. Since then, she has continued to make headlines for her romances, music projects, and television shows such as The World According to Paris and Hollywood Love Story.
