These celebrities have been around for a while — which also means they’ve gone through a lot of different styles over the years. From the ’80s and ’90s to the present, let’s take a look at the fashion flair of our favourite stars and how they’ve only gotten more chic with age.

Then: Victoria Beckham, 2000
By this time, the Spice Girls had taken a break to each pursue solo careers. While the former Posh Spice did release an album, fashion was where it was at — though you can't tell from her embellished white slip dress (her ensemble of choice back in the day). She experimented with all kinds of looks, from long extensions to spiky pixie cuts, but by 2006 she began to evolve.

Now: Victoria Beckham, 2019
It was in 2006 that Becks launched VVB, which included denim and eyewear collections. She quickly grew that into a label and it, along with her own personal style, has gotten more sophisticated — and, funnily enough, more sensible. While it could've been high-end, intimidating fashion, Beckham's line has gorgeous items but doesn't have anything we all can't wear. As for her own personal look, she's now a polished, elegant businesswoman, wife and mom of four, but she still manages to sneak in a bold look when she can.

Then: Sarah Jessica Parker, 1988
The '80s queen had all kinds of enviable style. Aside from the giant hat with the even bigger flower on it, she's sporting overalls and an oversized blazer, proving yet again that she was ahead of her time. Although that hat can stay in 1988, thanks.

Now: Sarah Jessica Parker, 2019
Sex and the City came and went and much of Carrie Bradshaw is still seen in SJP today. She keeps it classy, all while continuing to add bits of whimsy to everything she puts on.
5 / 20
Then: Beyoncé, 2000
When Bey was part of Destiny's Child, she and the rest of the group dressed alike. But high-slitted dresses, sparkly pants and barely-there crop tops were what the singer wore when stating her individuality.

Now: Beyoncé, 2019
Regal is the best way to describe Beyoncé's style now (she is a queen, after all), and while she still likes to show off her stems, she now does so in a manner fit for royalty.
7 / 20
Then: Demi Moore, 1989
Bicycle shorts, an embroidered corset, peekaboo bra and the metallic lining of Demi's coordinating half-skirt practically screams '80s.

Now: Demi Moore, 2020
Ironically enough, Demi looks exactly the same today but she has definitely upped her fashion game. While she definitely knows how to work a sexy look, nowadays it's done a lot less... loudly.

Then: Miley Cyrus, 2006
During her Hannah Montana days, Miley was a typical teenager, donning everything from jeans and camisoles to tunics and whimsical dresses. But a few years later, still a teen, she embraced her wilder side and those flowery dresses and trendy outfits were thrown out the window in favour of more daring choices.

Now: Miley Cyrus, 2020
For the most part, her twerking days are done, but that edgy vibe still remains. The singer is currently rocking a mullet but perhaps it can no longer be contained and is being grown out into something more conventional. Pfft, nah! This is Miley we're talking about. She might come out of isolation with a shaved head — and no one would be surprised.
11 / 20
Then: Drew Barrymore, 1998
Barrymore, circa anytime in the '90s, was a little bit grunge, a little bit hippie, and a whole lot of rock 'n' roll. But she fully embraced the thin eyebrows, brown lipstick and flowers in her hair with so much enthusiasm, you couldn't not love her.

Now: Drew Barrymore, 2020
Fast-forward a couple decades and while she's still all about the love (and flowers), it's in a much more refined and muted way. But this is Drew, people! She still exudes that adorable charm.
13 / 20
Then: Lady Gaga, 2008
Gaga hit the music scene running, with her heavy bangs, outrageous platform shoes and quirky, over-the-top outfits. (Remember the meat dress? Didn't include it because we figured you've seen enough of it.)

Now: Lady Gaga, 2018
A decade later and Lady Gaga still loves a bold look, however these days she goes for the drama with stunning gowns and glam updos.

Then: Nicole Richie, 2002
The early 2000s was not a good fashion era for anyone, what with the low-rise jeans, trucker hats, and sheer shawls overtop bras, which were all the rage. Nicole didn't look like she was ever going to find her way out of it and that her less-than-flattering looks were going to be with her forever.

Now: Nicole Richie, 2019
Well, she sure showed us! It's almost shocking that she went from well... what she was wearing back in the day... to this gorgeousness. She continues to lean into that boho-chic direction but has cultivated it in a clean, modern way.
17 / 20
Then: Taylor Swift, 2006
Swift was all-country when she made her music debut, from the chunky curls flowing down her back to the flowy handkerchief dresses and quintessential cowboy boots. But as she transitioned from country to pop, so too did her style.
18 / 20
Now: Taylor Swift, 2019
The down-home, comfortable looks were out and Taylor eventually channelled her sexier side before finding herself in similar takes on what she's always loved, just with a more sophisticated twist.

Then: Céline Dion, 1997
The Céline of yore didn't always choose the most flattering outfits. The sheer on this halter top gown over the white underthings? Oy.
