Our affinity for an enticing before-and-after has overtaken us once again, and just in time for Who What Wear’s denim week. We dug deep through the celebrity archives to find a treasure trove of looks from style-setters like Victoria Beckham and Beyoncé, and we paired them side by side with a present-day outfit for a delightfully amusing and inspiring collection of denim transformations. Scroll down to see!
