You may want to imagine your favorite celebrities as being the same since they were young. The truth, however, is that like every mortal, they did have their awkward phases, too. For some, it was the denim obsession with braided hair, and for others, it was the goth phase. As a matter of fact, the words “goth” and “celebrity” go together like black lipstick and a smart suit. Even though it’s an unexpected combination, if you look back at some celebrities’ early days and uncover their edgy, gothic, and punk rock outfits, you will realize it was always bound to happen: they, too, used to be rebellious young people. Here are a few of them, compiled by Ranker.
1. Christina Hendricks
Christina Hendricks is best known for her role on Mad Men, so you may associate her with the sophisticated ’60s aesthetic. However, in high school, Hendricks used to be so goth! When the 42-year-old appeared on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, she uncovered some of the amazing photos from those days.
