As we approached this monumental day — the official relaunch of Refinery29 — we've been thinking a lot about our history. We're always focused on how we can keep getting bigger and better, but it's important to remember where you came from, too. While the early days of R29 may not look familiar to all of today's readers, the site's first iterations hold a special place in our hearts.
All that reminiscing got us thinking about makeovers, and what it takes to truly turn over a new leaf. Whether you're moving to a new city, overcoming a bad breakup, or just really getting into the back-to-school vibe, the makeover itch strikes everyone at one point or another — even our favorite A-listers. Sometimes they're going goth, sometimes they're going blonde, but the celeb makeover is almost as old as Hollywood itself. So, to celebrate all things fresh and new, we're taking a look back at our favorite A-list overhauls.
