You know, celebrities aren’t always the glamazons you see on your television screens or in the cheap tabloids you scope out when waiting in line at the grocery store. In fact, they all had the same awkward phases as us. I know. Novel f*cking concept. Stars, they’re just like us! It’s certainly helped sell a lot of magazines, eh? Anyway, no group is better than the Gossip Girl cast to exemplify the many positive changes fame and fortune bring to your looks.

While the whole crew has always been naturally attractive, my guess is that there have been some tweaks that have helped them along the way. Oh, and having full-time hair and makeup doesn’t hurt either! The fine folks at InStyle did us all a solid and compiled some serious classics from their high school days. All I can say is that I’m forever grateful.

Click through the gallery above for a look back at the Gossip Girl cast when they were young. Of course, there are current photographs for reference. Enjoy! And please, share with the class: Whose looks have evolved the most, and who looked better as an awkward teen?

It's widely rumored that Blake Lively got a nose job, and I can't confirm this, but all I can say is that whoever the surgeon was that handled her did a damn fine job. Bravo, Blakey.

Kelly, who plays Lily van der Woodsen, wasn't always toting around Birkins and organizing charity galas. She had crazy '80s hair and was a California gal.

In high school, Michelle was already a child star, but she was way more fresh faced than her evil character Georgina Sparks.

Chace looks like the kind of guy who would give you a noogie and spend too much time on the lacrosse field.

This comes as no surprise: Leighton is stunning, even in her awkward teen years. She looks like a little equestrian princess.

Nose job? Eh, eh? I'm not sure, but she was as cute then as she is now!
