Christina Ricci Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Back in the day, child actor Christina Ricci awkwardly rocked cute kiddie looks at red carpet events.  As she transformed from the sullen star of The Addams Family to a queen bee on the indie film scene, Ricci’s style shifted from teeny-bopper to the sleek, chic and hipper-than-thou trendsetter she is today.

Off the red carpet, the 5’1” actress – who has modeled for Louis Vuitton – suffered from an eating disorder that slimmed her body down to an unhealthy size. “I was a teenager going through adolescence and at one point I had a little anorexia phase and then I kind of ballooned,” she told Entertainment Tonight in 2007. “I feel my body now is the adult Christina and it’s what I should have come to a long time ago if I hadn’t been screwing around with my body so much.”

Are you into the adult Christina’s skinny, glammed-up look?

Toccara Jones Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

Toccara Jones first made a name for herself as a plus-size competitor on the third season of America’s Next Top Model. Even though she was the seventh person eliminated that season, her bubbly personality, confidence in her body, and stunning looks won her millions of fans – and a successful plus-size modeling career. She’s currently repped by Wilhelmina Models and has done work for Target and Avon, and posed on the cover of King magazine.

In 2005 Toccara lost 32 pounds as a contestant on VH1’s Celebrity Boot Camp, knocking her weight down to 173 pounds. By the time she made her second appearance on the flab-to-fab reality show in 2008, she had gained back 14 pounds. But she powered through the rigorous boot camp workouts, and slimmed down to 166 pounds. Most recently, Toccara flaunted her svelte bod in the pages of Italian Vogue, making her the first black plus-sized model to grace the iconic mag’s pages.

Do you dig Toccara’s new slender bod, or was her curvier look more luscious?

Evan Rachel Wood Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

It’s fitting that Evan Rachel Wood made a name for herself playing a hard-partying middle-schooler in the movie Thirteen, as the actress has always acted old for her age. Though her original look was that of a fresh-faced kid rockin’ preppy garb, she soon shifted her fashion picks so that her threads matched her reputation as “wise beyond her years.”

Her clothing choices became increasingly glamorous, gothic and gorgeous during her relationship with controversial rocker Marilyn Manson at the age of 20, and some accused The Wrestler star of mimicking his ex-wife, burlesque queen Dita Von Teese. But their break-up in 2008 did nothing to damper Evan’s dark and sexy style style (they’re currently back together), and she wowed the fashion world in a sophisticated Elie Saab gown on the red carpet at the 2009 Academy Awards.

Is Evan’s vampy look right up your alley, or do you miss the star’s fresh-faced style of yester-year?

Kim Kardashian Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

When exotic looker Kim Kardashian first hit up the Hollywood scene, she was just another Paris Hilton knock-off – crashing D-List events while flaunting her booty in barely-there outfits. These days, Kim’s chucked the cheesiness for a look that’s more classic, simple and sleek. But the starlet didn’t just swap out her trashy clothes for a chicer look – she’s also adopted a macrobiotic diet and slimmed down from a size 6 to a size 2 – all for the sake of looking fierce.

Kim also hit to the gym to help tone her eye-catching booty, after she grew tired of the frenzy her fanny caused. “I love that I’m curvy, but I’m on this major kick to try and lose weight, especially in my butt,” she told Radar magazine in March 2009. “I’m just so over it! When you’re posing on the red carpet and the paparazzi shout, ‘Turn around! Turn around!’ — it gets a little offensive.”

Do you prefer Kim back when she was an unknown, bootylicious babe or is her current slimmed down, high fashion  look more your speed?

Lily Allen Makeover: Fab Or Fail?

British beauty Lily Allen burst onto the scene in 2006 after her music became a viral smash on MySpace. Soon she became known not just for her catchy tunes, but for her signature style – incorporating cute designer dresses with sneakers and giant gold earrings. But Lily’s look has grown since she first hit the stage, and the singer now prefers massive heels and designer duds to her previous childish look. These days, Lily can be found strolling the red carpet in gorgeous couture gowns almost as often as she’s seen being carried out of clubs drunk.

While Allen’s style has evolved, her body size and esteem has yo-yoed over the years. In 2007 she took to her MySpace blog, complaining about the “evil machine” of our body-obsessed society in a post entitled “fat, ugly and sh*tter than winehouse.”  Later that year, she turned to hypnotism to help her successfully work out and lose weight.

Are you a fan of the fabulously slender Lily, or do you love her original look?

Bat Girl Spotted In Gotham City

Sarah Jessica Parker

Sarah Jessica Parker - always the trendsetter – is leading the charge to bring back monstrous shoulder pads. Apparently they’re in again, but we’ll wait until we see them on Katie Holmes to be sure.

The actress was spotted with her miserable looking husband, Matthew Broderick, at a premiere in NYC last night and his outfit was just as odd,  channeling 50′s puppet Howdy Doody. Their fashion choices may be questionable, but at least they keep it interesting. Reese and Jake could learn a thing or too!

And yes, we like her hot pink shoes too.  [Photo: WireImage]

Lady Gaga To Go

Lady Gaga can’t use any old to-go cup to tote her tea – only fine China will do! The Lady made quite an entrance while arriving at Radio 1 in the UK to promote her album. As she left her interview, she worked the crowd in her tight white dress, oversized shades, black and white hat and matching checkered umbrella. Check out our gallery of Lady Gaga!

And Then Drew Gets It So Wrong

drew-barrymore1

How? Why? What on earth were you thinking? Just days after Drew Barrymore dazzled with her stunning zebra-print dress and all-round fabulousness, she undid all that good work with a hair/fashion disaster that was off the scale. While she’s a stunning woman, that hair doesn’t need extra inches, and that dress could do with some, er, structure. Any structure to prove it’s not a “ooh look I might have a baby bump” exercise. Never mind. [Photo: Splash News Online]

Audrina Glams Up For DVD Premiere

Audrina

Audrina Patridge put on a new face for the premiere of her straight to DVD flick, Into The Blue 2: The Reef. The Hills hottie got all dolled up for her big night, and it took us a minute to recognize the starlet. Without her ceiling eyes and Justin Bobby on her arm, she’s practically unrecognizable. Think her frenemies from the show are jealous of her gorgeous red carpet transformation?

Aud dragged along her sister Casey, whose lace n’ tattoos look would surely win her a spot on the next Rock of Love installment. Pics below.   [Photo: GettyImages]
