Happy Throwback Thursday, y'all!
The stars really dug deep this #tbt, giving us plenty of pics of the Kardashians as kids (holy adorable baby Khloé), vintage January Jones (this pic is almost mullet caliber), and everything in between. There were also the more recent look backs, like Kim Kardashian's sexy shoot in Australia and even a video of Nicole Richie's rap about her bangs from just last year.
But let's begin with the #ThrowbackThursday that might be the most timely of all--Ellen DeGeneres backstage at the 2007 Oscars! In just three days, she'll return as the Academy Awards emcee, hopefully bringing all the dancing, kind humor and fun she did before.
Then there's Mad Men's bored blond housewife, played by Instagram newcomer and #tbt champ January. The 36-year-old actress shared a snap of herself and her mom from 1978, adding #loveyoumom and #doyoustilhavethosebadassspecs?
Ms. Jones even threw some throwback love to Justin Bieber, posting a screengrab of him backstage watching as Rihanna performed at the 2012 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. She sensed the Biebs was #literallyawestruck, and noted #hessopretty.
Also pretty (in a non-Bieber way, of course)? Kim Kardashian! Kanye West's fiancé Instagrammed pics a #tbt from a photo shoot in Australia. The shots show Kim just a few years ago looking sexy and sleek in a bustier top and midriff-baring leather skirt.
But the cutest kid award has to go to Khloé! In one precious pic, "Baby KoKo" rocks a serious side ponytail and adorable pastel sweater covered in hearts. Her aunt Cici Bussey also shared a shot of Khlo, wearing an all-pink outfit and bows in her hair, chatting away on a play phone.
This brings us back to one of Khloé's BFFs, The Game! The rapper, who recently revealed he once dated Kim but never Khloé--despite silly rumors to the contrary, was a cute kiddo himself. He Instagrammed a pic from 1980 of "Baby Game," showing the 34-year-old rapper in a red jumper when he was just one year old!
Now, back to Nicole Richie! She's not quite a professional rapper (yet), but she can throw down a decent beat. On a 2013 episode of her web series Candidly Nicole, the mom of two enlisted the help of brother-in-law Benji Madden and rapper Ebone Hoodrich to help her out in the studio. "Nicki Rich," as she renamed herself, rhymed the real truth about her haircut and gluten-free spaghetti. You know, tough stuff.
She also showed off her softer, side for #TBT, Instagramming a shot of herself kissing one of her little ones, captioning the moment, "In love in Paris."
Perfect mix of sweet and sassy!
