Throwback Thursday: Local celeb headshots

Hands up if you knew Old Headshot Day existed? Well, neither did we. At least not until a string of Hollywood stars from Emma Watson to Reese Witherspoon took to sharing their (awkward) snaps on social media on April 27 to commemorate the day.

The trend did not catch on here - with the exception of Michelle Chong and Michelle Chia, who posted theirs on Instagram - but that didn’t stop us from digging through our archives for old glamour shots of local celebs from 10 years ago. Get ready for some bad hair and makeup.

Chris may have put on a few pounds and sprouted a ton of white hair since this was taken, but we’ll take him as a silver fox any day.

Becks is nothing if not consistent. Ten years and two Best Actress awards later, she still sports the same hairstyle, natural makeup and infectious smile.

How cute and fresh does Felicia look with her bob and blunt bangs? As much as we love her current pixie, we’d push for this hairstyle if she ever decided to grow her hair again.

In 10 years, Desmond went from Taiwanese boybander to nice Singaporean boy.

Looks like Aileen too fell victim to the skinny brow and blue eye liner trend.

How is it that even after having two kids Yvonne hasn’t aged one bit?

Another celeb who convinced us that the fountain of youth does exist is Michelle Chia, who still looks like her 32-year-old self.

We get that Elvin wanted to accentuate his bright smile and show off his newly-straightened teeth, but he went a little overboard with the lippie.

Ya Hui, is that you? We hardly recognised the actress with her full fringe and long hair.

The harsh makeup and fierce stare make the bubbly host look uncharacteristically intimidating.

Jeanette’s shimmery eyeshadow, glossy lips and choppy hair were the envy of all teenage girls in the mid-2000s.
