It’s that time again! Our weekly installment of Celebrities in Sweatpants is back for its third round, and in the spirit of even the most glamorous people in the world looking completely frumpy and normal in a solid set of sweats, we’ve decided to focus this week’s edition on all ladies.
When someone like Russel Crowe steps out in ill-fitting black sweats and a grungy-looking T-shirt, it makes sense that you wouldn’t be able to recognize him—he looks just like any other dude going to the gym. But when ladies like Natalie Portman, Paris Hilton, and Miley Cyrus—arguably women who regularly put a lot of time and effort into their overall appearance—step out looking equally as unrecognizable, that is truly a feat.

Wow, Natalie Portman really cleans up good.

It seems impossible that this is the very same Miley Cyrus who now has a platinum blonde pixie cut, dances bare-assed on stage, and rides giant wrecking balls naked. But once, she was just a lowly lover of Juicy Couture sweats and Louis Vuitton totes—like the rest of us.
Whoa. Turns out, Madonna truly is a woman of many faces.
Even with a totally bare face—it seems she's not wearing a lick of makeup here—Katie Holmes hardly looks like herself.

From assless chaps to velour sweats, Christina Aguilera loves a good pair of statement-making pants.
Gasp. Remember when Julia Roberts was the biggest movie star in the world? Even at the height of her fame, we doubt we would notice her if we walked by her while she was wearing this.
