These pics will reinvigorate you. Trust us, once you see photos of Beyoncé, Jennifer Aniston and Natalie Portman in their (sometimes tragic) early 2000s choices, it will give you enough energy to take on Sunday's carpet, where everyone sticks to high fashion.

1. Angelina Jolie


Is it pajamas? Is it a doctor's coat? With this ensemble, she doesn't have to decide!

2. Kate Hudson


As gorgeous as they come, right? 

3. Jessica Alba and Michael Weatherly

Yeah, Jessica. You wear that all-white suit! Do it!

See? Nothing says fancy Hollywood after party like the color fuchsia.

6. Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen

Remember these crazy kids getting together?!

7. Jessica Lange


Rocking those shades and flawless in orange. And we can't say "flawless in orange" often.

8. Anne Hathaway

We're pretty sure we saw this dress at our high school senior prom.

9. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt

Jen in a sexy power suit and Brad with frosted hair and tinted shades? Ahhh, the early 2000s. How glorious they were.

10. Katie Holmes

We're more interested in the fact that Coors Light sponsored a Golden Globes party than in Katie's little black dress.

11. Scott Foley and Jennifer Garner

This photo might make Felicity fans weep. Sorry about that. 

12. Tyra Banks

Side-eying hard, even back then.

13. Scarlett Johansson


It looks like a slip that goes under a dress, but we're not complaining.

14. Gwen Stefani


Mile-high beehive!

15. Jennifer Love Hewitt

We can't deal with those shoes. We just can't.

16. Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thorton

Before Brad, there was BBT.

17. Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon

Ron Galella, Ltd./WireImage

Hey, Sexy ladies...we like your iridescent fabric choices.

18. Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey

If you're not dropping everything and watching The Wedding Planner whenever it's on TV, you're not living life right.

19. Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe

Reese's hair is very Elle Woods, no?

20. Charlize Theron

Oh, my. It's fine to show that much skin because she has a flower on her dress. That's an unspoken rule of the red carpet.

21. Charlie Hunnam

Albert L. Ortega/WireImage

Look at baby Jax! He is definitely too cool for school with that cigarette in his hand.

22. Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson

J. Vespa/WireImage

When MTV reality stars were red carpet royalty. Those were the days... 

23. Sarah Jessica Parker and Chris Noth


This photo of Carrie and Big makes our heart hurt and soar at the same time.

24. Portia De Rossi


Before she became Mrs. Ellen DeGeneres, Portia apparently was all about about beaded dresses that kind of looked like something a mermaid would wear when she got legs and tried to live a new life on land.

25. Halle Berry

Is that a lace tablecloth she's carrying?

26. Minnie Driver and Josh Brolin

Ron Galella, Ltd./WireImage

Hello, cleavage. How are you? Yowza.

27. Renée Zellweger and Jim Carrey


Aw, this photo is so cute. Remember, that's what Renée used to look like before she started her "different, happy, more fulfilling life."

28. Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley

Elizabeth looks great, but why does her dress immediately make us thing of Limeade? Or Ninja Turtles?

29. Courtney Love

Kevin Mazur/WireImage

Oof. What happened here?

30. Ginnifer Goodwin

Albert L. Ortega/WireImage

Girl, work those pointy shoes!

31. Beyoncé

You don't know this, but the paps are yelling out: "You are Beyoncé!" And she's telling them, "thank you."

32. Sean Hayes and Camryn Manheim

Ron Galella, Ltd./WireImage

"Come, rest your silly, tiny head on my bosom," is probably what Camryn said to Sean moments before this photo.

33. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Freddie Prinze Jr.

We think Freddie's hair was this blonde for a role. We hope.

34. Sandra Bullock

Those two-piece dresses with the sparkly top piece were all the rage back in the early aughts.

35. Natalie Portman

Kevin Mazur/WireImage

So young! So sweet! So brown!

36. Elisha Cuthbert

We call this look: "All lace, no bulls--t."

37. Mischa Barton

Albert L. Ortega/WireImage

This dress was definitely snatched from The O.C.'s wardrobe department.

38. Cameron Diaz and Julia Roberts

We're not sure what's happening here; we're just glad it is happening.

39. Winona Ryder and Matt Damon

If you and your date do the black and white matching thing, you're automatically class as hell. Remember that.
