We're not sure if we'd call Mila Kunis' celeb story a meteoric rise. She's been a slow burner, in the best way possible. From her annoying-but-lovable character on That '70s Show to the full-blown Hollywood heartthrob she is today, Kunis has been a star every step of the way.
But, like all of us, she had her moments in the early 2000s when she felt it was necessary to wear a choker and scrunch her curls with hair gel. It's okay, we've all been there, and at the time we all thought it looked great. No judgment. But times have changed, and now we're ready to take a look at how her style — along with her career — has evolved through the years. Impressive, to say the least. Not sure about that Sarah Marshall, but this is one young lady we're not forgetting any time soon!
Here's that choker we were talking about. And yet, she still manages to look good, even with those thinner eyebrows and sparkly shadow that was so popular back in the day.

Those are red-leather pants. And that's a bedazzled tank top. Enough said.

Seen here with Wilmer Valderrama and a rad pair of sunglasses, it almost seems like our girl is going back in time for a minute. But don't worry, she's about to catch up, big time...

This is the first sign of the budding red-carpet stunner within. Despite the distinctly back-then details, we don't have a hard time picturing this happening on a modern-day red carpet.

Kunis stepped it up a notch at the premiere of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, marking the beginning of maxi dresses as a major trend, as well as demonstrating her increasing comfort at high-profile events.

This is the beginning of great things. Kunis was a vision in red Monique Lhuillier at the 2009 Emmys, and it only goes uphill from here.

Maybe our favorite Kunis look of all time, she was beyond beautiful at the Oscars in Elie Saab. It's her first ensemble at this level of high fashion, but it won't be her last.

This is the sleek, chic Kunis we know and love today, looking fierce in Versace at the White House Correspondants' Dinner.

Here's proof that her great taste (and great stylist) goes beyond just black-tie events. We're loving the metallic shorts and mismatched blazer.

Ted may have been a flop, but this look from the premiere is far from it. Always at ease for the camera, the Mila Kunis of today is a natural when it comes to great style in the public eye.
