From Harry Potter pre teens to our favorite ’90s shows, this list will take you on a serious trip down memory lane. The ladies on this list have grown into mature, classy, and absolutely stunning young women. Keep scrolling for a list of 12 child stars who grew up to slay the beauty scene.
1. Dakota Fanning
The blonde beauty has come a long way since her breaking role in I Am Sam at only age seven! Dakota was a cutie patootie back then and is a seriously stunning young woman now!
2. Victoria Justice
Remember Lola from Zoey 101? Well, the pre teen with the killer style has grown into a gorgeous, fashionable young lady! I think Victoria Justice bears a striking similarity to Kendall Jenner here…
3. Miley Cyrus
Miley’s transformation from her Hannah Montana days is seriously shocking. The cute, innocent child star is now one of the edgiest, most unapologetic style icons out there.
4. Emma Watson
Who would’ve ever thought that frizzy-haired Hermione would grow up to become such a classy, stylish, and philanthropic young woman? Emma Watson is such an amazing role model for young girls and women everywhere.
5. Emma Roberts
Did Emma Roberts even have an awkward teen stage? I think not. The child star is now platinum blonde and always looks chic at red carpet events.
6. Danielle Fishel
TOPANGA! Sorry for the excitement but Boy Meets World was my favorite show growing up. Danielle Fishel looks exactly the same as she did in the ’90s, just a little more glamorous!
7. Afshan Azad
Remember Ron Weasley’s adorable date to the Yule Ball? Well Padma Patil, played by Afshan Azad, is all grown up and drop-dead gorgeous. I’m pretty sure her contouring skills would put any beauty blogger to shame.
8. Scarlett Johansson
I totally forgot that Scarlett Johansson had her big break in the 1998 film, The Horse Whisperer. The child star has grown up to be one of the most recognized actresses in Hollywood and has definitely earned her blonde bombshell status.
9. Raven Symone
Remember when the That’s So Raven star was just a wee kid on The Cosby Show? I love the edgy, bold looks she’s always stepping out in nowadays.
10. Anna Chlumsky
Remember Vada from My Girl? I may have teared up a bit just thinking about that movie. The talented child actress looks very much the same, but is now glamorous and elegant beyond belief.
11. Hilary Duff
Oh my gosh. I used to watch Lizzie McGuire every single day after school and this photo of preteen Hil is giving me serious flashbacks. It’s clear that the actress, singer, and mom has definitely grown out of her awkward phase.
12. Bonnie Wright
Little Ginny Weasley isn’t so little anymore! The red-haired actress has matured into a classic beauty who can totally pull off a bright red lip.
