Guess Who: Do You Recognise These Fashion Stars Before They Were Famous?

27 December 2013

GALLERY>> Guess these stars before they were famous

This girl thinks she's 'It'

...or so says the title of her book. When she was little, she was a regular at all the biggest gymkhanas. Now she’s a regular at all the biggest front rows, with the biggest Mulberry bag collection in fashion. She ditched her jodhpurs for jumpsuits aeons ago.

It's Alexa Chung!

This heiress to an iconic Italian knitwear empire...

...was playing dress-up even here, at the age of seven. Her oh-so-chic gypsy wedding last year in Italy will be top of every bride-to-be’s Pinterest boards for years to come.

It's Margherita Missoni!

Who would have predicted...

...that this pre-schooler would become one of the highest-paid supermodels in history? Perma-tanned and honey blonde, the Brazilian beauty is said to have the longest legs in fashion.


It's Gisele Bundchen!

Strutting down a beach in sequins...

...this little girl showed signs of her stellar future as early as 2001. With her full lips, cheekbones and gap teeth, she’s a dead ringer for her rocker father.

It's Georgia May Jagger!

No longer needing to spice up her life...

...with micro dresses and platform heels, this woman has streamlined her look, opting for her own pared- down designs and chic colour palette. In fact, not a million miles away from this outfit here!


It's Victoria Beckham!

Ooh la la!

This Paris fashion visionary, who has recently launched her own fashion magazine, had yet to adopt her signature smudged kohl and smoky eye look in this picture. And there’s no sign of her trademark sexy pencil skirt and killer stilettos either.

It's Carine Roitfeld!

Move over Nigella...

...this famous British model is a big name in the food world and stars in her own cookery show. She loves nothing more than to cook chicken wings in her deep fat fryer and often ropes in best friend Cara Delevingne to wash up.


It's Jourdan Dunn!

All three daughters...

...posing here for a family portrait with their mother, are frequently spotted on the London party circuit. No sign of the distinctive eyebrows or wacky poses that have made the youngest here one of this year’s highest-paid British models.


It's Cara Delevingne!

This clean-living microbiotic eating actress... not as goody-goody as you think, as she likes a glass of wine and cigarette at weekends – just one, mind. In her spare time, she writes a blog. No one’s sure where the name of it comes from, but it rhymes with whoop!


It's Gwyneth Paltrow!

How times have changed!

This fashion muse/ heiress has binned the big Sloaney hair and scrunchies in favour of a more experimental high-fashion wardrobe, gravity-defying platforms and distinctive racoon-like hair streak. We’ll drink a pint of Irish stout to that.

It's Daphne Guinness!

She's worked with all the world's top photographers...

...appeared on almost countless magazine covers and now uses her fame to campaign for racial equality, but back in the day this girl was The Face – of Streatham.


It's Naomi Campbell!

This party loving model... still as relevant as when she first arrived on the scene in a Native American headdress. Her aura of effortless cool has meant a generation of Brit girls have grown up emulating her style. And she’s always been one step ahead of the pack – look how she works this season’s polo neck in this photo.


It's Kate Moss!

You might not catch them in sailor suits and pink Stetsons now...

...but these pint-sized child-star twins proved early on that they had fashion in their blood. By the time they were two years old, they had a multimillion-dollar merchandise empire. They moved across to the world of fashion, launching two credible fashion lines. 

It's the Olsen Twins!

Vogue Editor Anna Wintour is rumoured to be courting this star... appear on her magazine cover. Wonder what the Girls on the set of her hit TV series would say about that?


It's Lena Dunham!

Young love!

Proving that some celebrity marriages do last, this couple are still together – after 22 years.The Californian- cool stylist, who rarely veers from her signature wardrobe of maxidresses, wedges and giant shades, met her future husband in 1991 while they were students.


It's Rachel Zoe!

Some showed early style flair with pink Stetsons and sequin dresses, some succumbed to the scourge of the Pudding Bowl Haircut (great to know mums everywhere think the same). We’ve rounded up some childhood snaps of the style elite for you to play a game of ‘guess who?’.
