With all the cosmetics and commercials that can be seen on social media and television, women are under constant pressure to be on par with them.
However, these models and celebrities haven't been perfectly beautiful all their lives. They had to wait for puberty to bloom and achieve how they look right now. Maybe the fame and fortune from being in the showbiz industry helped as well.
Here are 7 celebrities before and after they achieved fame!
