We all know that beauty is only skin deep, and it doesn't last forever. That's why it's always best to be beautiful from the inside out (Thanks, Mom). But if you want to take a fun look back, some of our favorite celebrities once repped everything from small towns to the entire world. Amazing! MSN has a whole list, but some of my faves are below.
