    15 Celebs Whose Looks Changed Dramatically After They Hired A Stylist

    Talk about a total transformation!

    No matter how sharp a celeb's innate sense of style is, having a stylist can elevate their fashion game to the next level — the before-and-after transformations can be pretty amazing.

    Here are 15 celebs before and after getting a stylist:

    1. While promoting Slumdog Millionaire during the 2008 awards season, Dev Patel wore the blazer from his school uniform on the red carpet.

    with his hands in his pockets, Dev wears his uniform blazer and matching, ill-fitting suit trousers on the red carpet

    However, designer Christopher Bailey, and his team at Burberry, "came to the rescue" just in time to dress Dev for the Oscars.

    This is what his red carpet style looks like now.

    2. For her very first movie premiere, Zendaya styled an outfit for herself out of clothes she had from Target.

    However, when she was 14, she decided she wanted help choosing an outfit for the Never Say Never premiere, so she worked with vintage shop owner-turned-stylist, Law Roach.

    a shiny, structured blazer, a simple tank, a pleated pleather skirt, layered necklaces, tights, and ankle boots

    Law and Zendaya have been creating incredible red carpet style moments like this ever since.

    3. Her Spider-Man: No Way Home costar and boyfriend, Tom Holland, got off to a simplistic start for his red carpet career .

    However, around the time he started dating Zendaya, he also started working with her stylist, Law Roach.

    4. Before her first red carpet, 12-year-old Kristen Stewart "was being weird" about her baby hairs, so she snipped them off herself.

    A few years later, her publicist matched her with stylist, Tara Swennen, and they've been working together ever since.

    5. Many designers refused to dress Gabourey Sidibe for her first major red carpet event in Cannes because of her size, so she bought a cute dress from Torrid herself.

    Then, she worked with a stylist who made promises she couldn't deliver on, such as claiming that a high-end designer would make her a dress, then backtracking and saying it wasn't going to happen.

    However, she eventually started working with Marcy Guevara-Prete, who was willing to scour the internet for outfits Gabourey loved.

    6. Amanda Seyfried "used the only money [she] had to buy a dress" for the Mean Girls premiere, but she "didn’t know any of the rules, so [she] was wearing a white bra and black underwear and no slip."

    Amanda wears a knee-length, sleeveless turtleneck dress, but unfortunately, the fabric is sheer enough to be see-through in the camera flashes

    However, she's been working with stylist Elizabeth Stewart for the last decade.

    7. Back in 2012, Olivia Munn said she didn't work with a stylist because she'd rather take the blame for a bad outfit herself, but she did admit to sending pictures of her outfits to her friend at Vogue for advice.
