Drew Barrymore's complete style transformation

Drew Barrymore has been gracing our screens since she was just a little girl -- she even says that she's been working since she was just 11 months old! At the age of 7, Barrymore quickly became a household name thanks to her adorable portrayal of Gertie in the beloved movie "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial."

The actress and mogul went on to work consistently throughout her life (even through the rough patches) and has starred in movies like "Never Been Kissed," "Ever After" and "Fifty First Dates." Naturally, thanks to Barrymore's long and ever-evolving career, the 43-year-old mother of two has walked her fair share of red carpets.

From plaid dresses and hair bows to mini dresses and espadrilles, Barrymore has rocked pretty much every trend out there (our favorite tbt moments from the star would have to be her 90s looks!), and she has grown into her own right in front of the public eye.

Our favorite look that Barrymore has worn would have to be the strapless black lace gown that she wore to the 2006 Met Gala. Designed by Oscar de la Renta, a flattering neckline, minimal jewelry and a bright red lip completed her ensemble.

The pale pink John Galliano for Christian Dior dress that she wore to the 2007 Golden Globes also tops our list. Scroll through the gallery above to see Drew Barrymore's complete style transformation and all of her best looks!
