What the biggest stars looked like before they had a stylist.

These photos just show how important a stylist is.

Remember when Kate Hudson was best known as being Goldie Hawn’s daughter? Her stunning look at this year’s Golden Globes reminded us how far she has come – and she isn’t the only one. We travelled back in time to compare how today’s biggest stars have changed since they were red carpet rookies.

From Jessica Lange in 1977 to George Clooney in 1995, here are some of our favorite celebrities now and then.

Kate Hudson won a Golden Globe in 2001 for her role in "Almost Famous," but her outfit in 2015 might be worthy of its own honour.

Reese Witherspoon

Reese Witherspoon went from being "Legally Blonde" in 2001 to "Wild" in 2015, but we'd say her most recent look is pure elegance.

George Clooney

George Clooney was barely a household name when he stepped onto the Golden Globes' red carpet in 1995. In 2015, the lifetime achievement winner has an entirely different story.

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston has been commended for recently taking the unlikely role as a disturbed woman in "Cake." Back in 1996, we were just getting to know this "Friends" star and her effortless, minimalist style.

Though short-lived, the series "My So-Called Life" earned a cult following and its star Claire Danes won a Golden Globe. Today, the "Homeland" star is just as well-respected for her work.

How is it that Jennifer Lopez looks like she hasn't aged a day? The 45-year-old pop star and actress looks just as amazing in 2015 as she did in 1998. Kudos!

Julianna Margulies

This picture of Julianna Margulies in 1995 reminds us of everything '90s: white tights, kitten heels and a tiny beaded purse. Fast-forward to 2015 and the former "ER" actress, and current "The Good Wife" star, is sporting a more modern look thanks to this midi-length dress.

Jessica Lange

Having starred in just a single movie at the time ("King Kong"), Jessica Lange made her Golden Globes debut with a bang in 1977. In 2015, the celebrated actress is still being recognized for her work with a nomination for her role in "American Horror Story: Freak Show."

Meryl Streep

This classy lady has never been afraid to change with the times, and Streep has taken roles playing everyone from Margaret Thatcher to Julia Child, to a devilish magazine editor. We think the "Into the Woods" star has never looked better!
