Katy Perry Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

You’d never know it by her wild and wacky wardrobe, but Katy Perry was once as dowdy as a suburban mom! Before the singer made a name for herself kissing girls, she donned silk suit pants and unflattering sweaters at various Hollywood events. Her haircut was dull and lacked diva potential, and the overall package rated high on the Snooze Scale.

But something happened to Katy’s closet, and the singer celebrated her new album with a fresh, bold look that’s both beautiful and bizarre. Perry now favors a vintage look that has its roots in the 1940s and 50s, and her current hairdo is a blunt bob with an attitude. While her wardrobe certainly has it’s share of misses, she’s always adventurous, which is more we can say for her old look. What do you think of Katy’s transformation? Hot or Cold?

Ashlee Simpson Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

It’s not easy stepping out of a big sister’s shadow, especially when it belongs to curvy bombshell Jessica Simpson. After a grungy wardrobe and an ever-changing head of hair failed to help her stand out in a sea of pop stars, Ashlee Simpson slipped under the knife in 2006 to slim down her nose. The rhinoplasty inspired an entire makeover (including a new wardrobe and some dropped pounds), and Ashlee went from little sister to big-time beauty over night.

The starlet remained mum on her decision for a while, but finally opened up to Us Magazine in 2008. When asked about her new nose, she coyly cooed, “I think as long as people have two eyes, then you probably know the answer.” Regarding her decision to slice up her skin for a new-and-improved face, Mrs. Wentz declared, “[Plastic surgery] is something that everybody should think about for a really long time. Once you know it’s something you really feel comfortable with, then to each their own.” Has Ashlee’s transformation from grunge to sculpted chic been a success?

Seth Rogen Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Seth Rogen is proof that if you exercise and eat right, crazy sh*t will happen! The once-chunky funny guy first won over fans in the short-lived TV show Freaks & Geeks, but his star exploded on the big screen with hits The 40 Year Old Virgin and Superbad. After baring his butt in Knocked Up, Rogen began seriously slimming down for his role in The Green Hornet, which starts shooting this month.

Rogen revealed that he attained his new look the old fashioned way, telling Ryan Seacrest, “I exercised and I dieted.” He also claims, “I don’t weigh myself.” Wow, he makes it sound easy! Then again, personal trainers to the stars are known for getting results.

Justin Timberlake Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

When Justin Timberlake first burst onto the music scene in NSYNC, he was known for his bleach blond curly locks, head-to-toe denim, and cornrows. The pop star was always spotted with Britney Spears on his arm, and the two embodied the cheesy fashion trends of the late 1990s – fringe, skin, fake tans and lots and lots of denim.

But once JT booted both Britney and his band to the curb, he adopted a sleeker, sexier style. His giant fro was trimmed down, and he often rocked some sexy stubble on his face. When knock-out Cameron Diaz began to drag him down, he traded her in for the stunning Jessica Biel. He even launched his own fashion line with BFF Trace Ayala, called William Rast. The clothing company is known for its premium denim, as well as its menswear, and is named after the pals’ grandfathers. We have a feeling that most of you will vote “fab” on this makeover — but, go ahead, prove us wrong …

Anna Faris Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Anna Faris kicked off her career as Cindy Campbell, the beleaguered, black-haired heroine of Scary Movie in 2000, but once she started winning roles outside the franchise (including a memorable appearance as a faux-Cameron Diaz in Lost In Translation), Faris began showing off her natural blond hair — and a whole lot more.

She’s been rocking low-cut dresses for years, but Faris’ revealing ensemble at the premiere of Observe & Report couldn’t be further from her gawky roots. Are you down with her evolution into a comedy bombshell, or do you miss the plain-but-sweet?

Nicole Richie Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

When she first started appearing on the Hollywood scene, Nicole Richie was best known as Paris Hilton‘s raunchy BFF. Her look was part rock n’ roll and part skank — multi-colored hair extensions, a nose ring, and the skimpiest outfits conceivable. But fame set in, and with it Nicole dropped an obscene amount of weight and became a fashion icon over night. Her new look mixed her SoCal looks with serious glam, and decadent bling, thanks in part to stylist Rachel Zoe.

These days Nicole’s body is on the mend, after it gained some shape and suppleness during her pregnancy with daughter Harlow. The starlet is pregnant once more with her second child, and she’s bringing her signature style to her baby bump — accentuating it with gorgeous frocks and chunky gold jewels from her own line, House of Harlow. We can’t help but imagine her success has made ex-BFF Paris super jealous.

Is Nicole finally behaving her age or has she turned into a big bore?

Rihanna Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Rihanna was just a sweet girl with dreams of a music career, when a record producer vacationing in Barbados discovered the songbird and plucked her from the tiny island, relocating her to NYC to record an album. Jay-Z signed her immediately, and thus began RiRi’s career on the red carpet, offering up her good girl looks and easy pop tunes for the entire world to feast upon.

A simple haircut — taking her long locks into a seriously angled bob — seemed to change everything for Rihanna. She started sporting edgy designer looks and her onstage outfits and antics began to get wild. She continued chopping her hair into the short, severe, and super hot look she rocks today. Though she’s currently embracing a curly look, Rihanna continues to embrace her wild side with every outfit, proving that fashion – just like life – can be an adventure.

Victoria Beckham Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Victoria Beckham morphed from the baby-faced pop singer of The Spice Girls to super thin fashionista with an oft-imitated bob. Marrying hottie footballer David Beckham and paling around with the likes of Katie Holmes and Will Smith only further solidified her A-list status. Attributing her shrinking frame to controlled eating, Victoria has insisted she’s never had an eating disorder. And while she’s never publicly discussed her rumored plastic surgery, Victoria inadvertently admitted to a boob job when she exclaimed on her show Victoria Beckham: Coming To America, “I really thought that one of my silicones was going to fly out of my armpit then.”

Although Victoria makes other moms of three green with envy, she insists she doesn’t like many things about her picture-perfect frame. “There are loads of things I don’t like about my body. I don’t like my hair, my belly button, my stomach or my fingernails. Also I have no definition, probably from having babies. I could go to the gym but I haven’t got the time or the energy.” Do you miss the cutesy/sexy pop singer known as “Posh Spice?” Or do you prefer the haute couture-wearing vision of sophistication that Victoria Beckham is now?

Tara Reid Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Tara Reid took all our hopes and dreams for her future and crushed them underneath one of her massive, fake boobs. The actress was on top of the world in the late 90s, balancing indie appeal in The Big Lebowski with box office hit American Pie. Her acting chops were only enhanced by her smoking hot looks — maxing out her sex appeal with her girl next door look and raspy voice. An engagement to MTV star Carson Daly only solidified Reid’s star power.

But Tara took a nosedive off the A-List, as her reputation as a hard-partying diva eclipsed her film career. In one of the most humiliating Hollywood moments ever, she revealed her boob job to the world at Diddy‘s 35th birthday party, when a wardrobe malfunction accidentally displayed her swollen and scarred left breast. Later photos also revealed a strange rippling affect in Tara’s stomach, which was a result of botched liposuction. Since the dress disaster, Tara’s made most of her money doing party promotions and is slowly working to reclaim her career — and her reputation.

Madonna Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Since gyrating her way onto MTV in 1982, Madonna has been on the cutting edge of fashion, style and trends. As a Detroit-transplant living in Big Apple, Madge made waves with her bleached hair, lacy gloves and skirts, and rosary necklaces.

With legions of fans mimicking her every move, Madonna quickly switched it up in the early 90s – chopping off her hair and embracing her boobs in Jean Paul Gaultier‘s infamous pointy bra. Then, ya know, there was her yoga phase, her Evita infatuation, her baby belly, another cross obsession, her book Sex and a little film called Truth or Dare. Madonna’s reinventions are as endless and infamous as her hits.

These days, Madonna’s sporting a reserved, polished look while raising her three children in both London and New York. While her body — somewhat freakishly — is more ripped than ever before, some would say her taut face and raised eyebrows are starting to look a little artificial. But the Material Girl is still making front pages news for her looks. Is Madonna fab after all these years? Or should she think about giving it up?
