Aimee Teegarden was an adorable teenage cheerleader in "Friday Night Lights," but she looks like a totally different person now that she's all grown up.

The now-26-year-old actress hit the 2016 Emmy Awards on Sunday night and she's certainly come a long way from lanky teen with bangs to a full-blown knockout. Teegarden hit the award show alongside Daniel Sunjata, who she co-stars with in ABC's new drama "Notorious."

The duo looked happy to be at the award show, but we couldn't take our eyes off of Teegarden, who looked sexy and stunning in a white gown with a silver belt. She had her hair pulled back into a chic, messy chignon, which highlighted her delicate bone structure and high cheekbones.

Check out what Aimee used to look like!
