As 2012 comes to a close and 2013 starts (gulp), we take a look at ten of the most eye-opening makeovers from the past twelve months. From Kelly Osbourne's amaze fashion tranformation to Katie Holmes post-divorce makeover via Miley Cyrus' punk-ish peroxide overhaul, the past year has seen some epic celeb makeovers ranging from the unbelievably good, to the unbelievably not-so-brill. Here is a snapshot of our top ten favourites...

1. Kelly Osbourne: the fashion makeover

Kelly O has been looking increasingly amaze over the past few years, but how totally INCRED did she look as we came to the end of 2012? Kelly recently credited a vegan diet, prepared for her by her chef boyfriend, Matthew Mosshart, with giving the final polish to her awesome new look.

2. Katie Holmes: the divorce makeover

With one sweep of [a target="_blank" href="/conversation/archive/2012/06/29/tom-cruise-and-katie-holmes-are-divorcing-after-five-years-of-marriage--breaking.htm">pen across divorce papers[/a], Katie Holmes transformed herself into heel-wearing mega fox for her life post Tom Criuse. And hurrah for that! All she needs now is a hit movie/play/TV series to really get her back on track.... Though we did love 'The Kennedys'.

3. Miley Cyrus: the edgy makeover

Miley Cyrus dropped her Disney Princess look in 2012 in favour of a kind of [a target="_blank" href="/beauty/archive/2012/08/16/why-is-everyone-being-so-mean-to-miley-cyrus-about-her-new-hair.htm">Agyness Deyn peroxide crop. [/a]Now; the success of said crop is questionable (Kerry Katona, anyone?) but we love her devil-may-care attitude towards trying a new look. After all, if you can’t chop your hair off at the age of 20 then when can you?

4. Megan Fox: the yummy mummy makeover

Since giving birth to baby Noah in September, Megan Fox has revealed she’s set to give up her 'sexiest woman in the world' title to spare her son some blushes once he hits school. ‘I’m already thinking about when he’s in school and his friends are going to be showing him my photo shoots with me in a bikini and he’s going to be horrified’ she told the Mirror in December. We've already seen the actress sport some slightly more demure looks on the red carpet, but will 2013 bring us Megan Fox minus sexy? We’re preparing to be bamboozled.

5. Kristen Stewart: the scandal makeover

There’s nothing like a love life scandal to make you show your sartorial colours. Look at Kristen Stewart! K-Stew started the year as a converse-wearing teen starlet who always looked as if she would rather be wearing her jeans and sneakers on the red carpet. But after [a target="_blank" href="/fashion/archive/2012/07/25/does-kristen-stewarts-alleged-fling-with-rupert-sanderson-explain-her-sexy-style.htm">her indiscretion with director Rupert Sanders[/a], the promo tour for the final Twilight instalment saw Kristen unleash a whole new side of her stylish self, in next season Louis Vuitton and super sexy Zuhair Murad - winning her the Number 2 spot on our [a target="_blank" href="/fashion/news/best-dressed-of-2012-countdown--in-2nd-place-its-kristen-stewart">Best Dressed of 2012 List.[/a]

6. Anne Hathaway: the for-a-role makeover

Wowzers. For her role as Fantine in 'Les Miserables', Anne underwent one of the year’s most eye-opening transformations – [a target="_blank" href="/beauty/archive/2012/07/12/is-anne-hathaway-s-gamine-crop-her-best-hairstyle-yet.htm">shaving her head [/a]and losing 25lbs for her role as the emaciated prostitute. Annie is now both growing her hair and putting the weight she lost back on – we think she looks completely amazing at the moment, and we LOVE that her cute gamine crop seems to be encouraging her to try out more daring styles – like [a target="_blank" href="/fashion/news/yay-or-nay-anne-hathaway-tries-out-bondage-shoes-at-les-miserables-premiere">the Tom Ford bondage sandals [/a]she wore to the 'Les Mis' premiere. More of that please.

7. Natalie Portman: the shoulda-done-it-sooner makeover

Who. Knew? Natalie Portman, who we all knew as an extra smiley, super glossy brunette, wowed us this year when she revealed her (frankly awesome) [a target="_blank" href="/beauty/archive/2012/09/24/natalie-portman-transforms-from-brunette-to-blonde-for-new-film-role--whats-the-.htm">blonde tresses in September[/a]. Appaz, the new ‘do is for a role but to be honest, we’re hoping she keeps it. LOVE.

8. Leighton Meester: the chic makeover

Blair, be gone. As Leighton Meester (and we – sob) said goodbye to 'Gossip Girl', the actress took the opportunity to unleash a new, sassy side to her style, with a razor sharp bob. We especially loved the way she wore it at the Neiman Marcus & Target holiday event in November – slicked back, and paired with matte red lips. FIERCE.

9. Taylor Swift: the first lady makeover

She might now be dating everyone’s favourite member of One Direction, but her summer fling with Connor Kennedy seems to have had a profound effect on Taylor Swift’s style: basically, she’s turning into Jackie O. Gone are the pin curls, flounces and Princess-y dresses, and in are prim shifts and separates, pearls and classic red lipstick.

10. Lena Dunham: the made-it-big makeover

When Lena Dunham’s ‘Girls’ hit TV screens in April this year, the show’s lead actress and creator was a fresh-faced but less-than-glossy starlet. Fast forward to the end of the year, and not only does the supremely talented Dunham have four Emmy nominations, but she also has a brand new gamine crop and a wardrobe full of Prada and Wes Gordon.
