The entertainment and music industry are extremely difficult to break into, but the real work comes once fame is already achieved. While it’s said that everyone in the world will have at least 15 minutes of fame, who wants only 15 minutes? In order to stay relevant in Hollywood, celebrities must stay on top of their game and evolve with the times.
Just as fashion trends change with each passing season, celebrities often have to reinvent themselves to remain at the top of the pecking order. The same look that may have created an “It” girl status in the '90s, doesn’t exactly play well with modern trends.
There are some celebrities that have acknowledged this fact, and have evolved their look accordingly. The same short-haired styling that made Demi Moore desirable in Ghost doesn’t quite compare to her most recent look in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle. In fact, many celebrities get criticized for not changing their look to go with the times. Recently, Lisa Rinna made headlines simply by changing her hairstyle. Since she’s had the same hairstyle for 20 years, fans were overjoyed to see her finally evolving her signature look.
While there have been some celebrities that were able to move with the times, there are others that seem to be stuck in their original look. Whether you find it endearing or just a bit sad, check out our list of 15 celebrities that haven’t evolved their look and see how difficult it can be for some Hollywood favorites to change.
14 Kid Rock
Kid Rock is a platinum-selling artist who has shown true versatility throughout his career. From rap to rock and roll to country music, he is an artist that can excel in more than one genre. However, his versatility definitely hasn’t extended to his outward appearance. Donning the same look and style he had when he was first introduced to audiences, his hair is still long and the t-shirts just keep on coming. Rather than put effort into revamping his style, he has spent recent years stirring up trouble at local waffle houses and pissing off the Beyhive.
13 Steven Tyler
12 Hulk Hogan
While boxers and MMA fighters have a certain bravado in their persona, it really can’t compare to the showmanship that is required by wrestlers. Long before John Cena and WWE's Total Divas, Hulk Hogan built an empire from the brand he cultivated through his wrestling antics and signature look. However, he was able to branch out to reach celebrity status that goes beyond the world of wrestling.
11 David Hasselhoff
10 Gwen Stefani
9 Flavor Flav
8 Tommy Lee
7 Dolly Parton
6 Betsey Johnson
5 Courtney Love
4 Jenji Kohan
3 Duane “Dog” Chapman
When Madonna first started a career in the music industry, she was known for her outlandish and highly sexualized antics. From the cone bras to rolling around on the stage in a lingerie style wedding gown, Madonna has always tried to provoke audiences with her sex appeal. While the kiss with Britney Spears at the VMA’s was a shocking moment that helped show fans that she still had the ability to provoke, she has since made headlines for her inability to evolve. Instead of audiences just thinking of her as an icon in music, she has become a sad figure that people wish would start dressing for her age. Not only has she not evolved her look, but she seems to try and recreate the same old themes she’s always been known for.
