"This picture marks the era in which all photos of me were eventually discarded, around age 14. In fact it was only a couple of weeks ago when the last TRULY horrifying photo of me was thrown away by my Father. Needless to say I wasn't quite the lady-killer when I was younger..." -Rhys
"This picture was taken sometime in seventh or eighth grade at Disneyland. I commonly refer to junior high as 'The Ugly Years,' and they are horribly painful to look back on! My senior pictures thankfully turned out better." -Laney
"This picture was taken at a high school marching band contest in which we had participated. I (Laura) clearly thought that having thick black glasses and extremely long hair was stylish. And Stef thought putting beads on her marching band hoodie would be unique touch. Our braces were also classy. Our more recent picture is definitely a relief to both of us!" --Laura, on left
"This is my fourth-grade school picture in Hiawatha, KS, and I am totally rocking that 'child of the 90s' look. It is so obvious that my mother dressed me. I've got the giant floral shirt, (which I got rid of, just recently, actually) my teeth (pre-braces), my awesome PERM, and my circle glasses. Yep, I was one cool kid." --Kelli
"My best friend Lauren (left) and I had just turned 13. We were at a luncheon in Beverly Hills for some type of fundraising charity (we were junior members). I lived down the street from her and I remember her coming over about three hours in advance so we could 'get ready' together. Her Dad worked for Jafra at thetime so we had way too much make-up at our disposal.
"A bottle of foundation and a can of hairspray later I don't think we looked better than when we started. I had not yet realized that my fluorescent blonde hair was actually curly so I had spent a painful amount of additional time trying to blow-dry it straight. You can tell that we both have braces from the discomfort in our facial expressions. My glasses are the ubiquitous Marchon frame that were available in a variety of speckled colors as well as a pearly lavender which I also had." --Molly
