8 Stars Who Desperately Need A MakeoverPublished on February 24, 2015. Updated April 3, 2017
There are some stars in Hollywood who either like to play it safe on the red carpet or they just don’t care at all – neither of which are ideal. Part of a celebrity’s job includes being beautiful and fashionable at events, so it seems a bit silly for some of them to not even try. While stars like Naomi Watts, Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller continue to switch things up and wow us on the red carpet, there are a few celebrities out there who have failed to do this consistently. Here are 8 celebrities who are in desperate need of a makeover!
8. Katie Holmes
When Katie Holmes was with Tom Cruise, she took a lot of risks with her hair and fashion. Back then, she seemed to change her hairstyle on a regular basis. She also tried to do high fashion, but it didn’t work nearly as well for her as some of the hairstyles she tried out. Since leaving the mega star, she has kept things really simple – a little too simple. She has kept her hair long and her fashion choices have been less ornate.
While we love the former “Dawson’s Creek” star’s long, sleek hair, we really wish she’d trade it in for something more chic, like a textured bob. Also, we wish she’d experiment more with fashion – just not the way she did when she was with Cruise. She needs to be a bit edgier with her clothes. Instead of going for safe, she should hire a stylist and start taking some calculated risks.Debby Wong / Shutterstock.com
7. Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie doesn’t come across as the sort of person who cares about fashion. She has six kids, a demanding film career and she’s a dedicated humanitarian. For her, we think fashion is just another job – a job that she really doesn’t care to do well. Because of this, she has become one of the blandest stars on the red carpet. She has had the same hairstyle since the dawn of time and her outfits are less inspiring than Jennifer Aniston’s.
We think the “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” star needs a makeover. She needs a new hairstyle like it is nobody’s business and she needs to start putting a little more thought and care into what she wears to events. Part of her job includes makeup, fashion and hair and she needs to start fulfilling some of these duties.Jaguar PS / Shutterstock.com
6. Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood is stunning. She obviously puts a lot of time and effort into her appearance, from her hair and makeup to her clothes. She almost always looks nice on the red carpet, but she seems to always go for the same hairstyles and the same kinds of sparkly dresses. We want more from her – a lot more! The country singing sensation plays it way too safe. She has had the same hairstyle with the same color for as long as we can remember. She’s also had way too many princess moments on the red carpet.
We’d personally love nothing more than to see Underwood change up her hairstyle and her wardrobe. While she looks nice as a blond, we think brown hair might suit her a bit better – it would make her eyes pop. Also, we wish she’d trade in the sparkly dresses for those something else, anything else as long as it is edgier.Featureflash / Shutterstock.com
5. Jennifer Aniston
We’re convinced that Jennifer Aniston is afraid of change. She has had the same hairstyle since the ‘90s and her fashion hasn’t changed that much either. We really liked her hairstyle – for the first ten years. Now, we’re pretty bored of it. Her sense of style also leaves a lot to be desired. She seems to only wear black or nude on the red carpet. Once in a while, she will throw some color into her wardrobe just to throw us off; however, for the most part, she likes to play it safe – really safe.
We really think it is time for the former “Friends” star to finally start taking some much-needed risks. She needs to get a new, hip hairstyle, change her hair color and start dressing like she means business. The best part about this is that no one will expect it. She’s notorious for not taking risks with her fashion or her hair. Boring!DFree / Shutterstock.com
4. Jessica Biel
When it comes to hair and fashion, Jessica Biel doesn’t seem to have much of a clue. She’s really sporty and outdoorsy, so we get the impression that, when it comes to hair clothes, she’d rather be doing something else. As a result, she has had some of the worst bangs in Hollywood and, on the red carpet, she usually ends up on any and all of the worst dressed lists. It is really too bad cause she seems to have so much potential – she just isn’t getting the right assistance.
If this were a perfect world, we would get the former “7th Heaven” star the makeover she needs. A new hairstyle is definitely in order. We’d actually love to see her with a chic bob. She also needs a new stylist, one with a better track record than the one she has. She ends up on way too many worst dressed lists and that needs to change.Debby Wong / Shutterstock.com
3. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were such cute teenagers. They made much better hair, makeup and fashion choices then than they do now. It is almost tragic what has happened to them. They stopped tweezing their eyebrows; they stopped smiling on red carpets; they lost their fashion mojo; and they started making questionable choices with their hair and makeup. These two may work in the fashion world, but they somehow can’t manage to dress themselves fashionably.
These tiny moguls need a serious makeover. Instead of borrowing from Morticia Addams’ closet, they need to start dressing like they actually care how they look. Both of them are in desperate need of a haircut. The long, frizzy look is totally over, especially if the person in question can afford a hair stylist. They also need to start smiling when they are on the red carpet. The sucking-on-a-lemon-look is so unattractive for so many reasons.Photo By: Gregorio T. Binuya/Everett Collection
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
When it comes to her hair, makeup and clothing, Gwyneth Paltrow likes to play it safe. Since she first rose to fame during the mid ‘90s, she really hasn’t changed all that much. There was that brief period where she had that cute crop cut and she once had a chic bob but, other than that, she hasn’t really taken any risks with her hair. Even when she’s on the red carpet, she chooses to flat iron her hair, part it in the middle and use minimal makeup – boring! She’s also a hit or miss with fashion. She has worn pastel pink to more events than we can count.

1. Christina Aguilera
Unlike most of the celebs on this list, Christina Aguilera has no problems changing her hair, makeup or fashion – she’s done it several times already and she’s only in her early thirties. Her most recent makeover has been the absolute worst. She looks sloppy, bloated and she doesn’t seem to wear clothes that fit her very well. We never thought that anything could be worse than when she wore chaps and a bikini out in public, but what she’s doing now is worse – much worse.
We know that the “What a Girl Wants” singer can dress to impress – she used to dress that way when she was with Jordan Bratman. She traded in the chaps for a Jean Harlow-type style and it really suited her. Aguilera can do glam really well. We think she needs another makeover right about now. This time, we want less makeup and less ridiculously tight clothes. She really needs to just freshen up her look because it has been stale for a really long time.Joe Seer / Shutterstock.com
