Before stylists, trainers and fitness gurus get ahold of a rising celebrity, they often look quite. . . different. Check out how these five stars are dramatically transforming as their careers take off.
#1 Carrie Underwood. We saw her wow the "American Idol" judges and viewers back in 2005. But it was after "Idol" that she really started to change not only her look but her physique, too. We've seen this health-conscious vegetarian become a more confident, radiant beauty who's approaching fashion icon status with her leg-baring looks.
#2 Jennifer Hudson. After giving birth to a baby boy late last August, Jen took initiative to get in shape. As the newest Weight Watchers spokeswoman, Jen represents the regular woman struggling with weight. We applaud this curvaceous woman for taking charge.
#3 Kate Gosselin. She's certainly taken her fair share of criticism since we first met her on TLC. Besides the drastic change in her hair, Kate's amped up her fitness regimen (thank you, DWTS) and now has long, toned gams and a sexy waist. Taking care of her 8 kids and working on her new television show, probably keeps the workout going.
#4 Jessica Biel. This former model has come a long way since her "7th Heaven" days. There were some questionable fashion choices and movie roles but she's evolved into a head-turning beauty and self-professed fitness fanatic. Her athletic build is still feminine and sexy.
#5 Hilary Duff. We watched the baby-faced TV star trade her bubble-gum style for body-hugging dresses. Hilary hit the gym and emerged a healthy, fit young mogul. If you compare her look now with her "Lizzie McGuire" days, you'd be shocked!
