The Best Celebrity Throwbacks on Instagram
InStyle brings you the best #ThrowbackThursday photos from celebrities' Instagrams.
Lively used Thursday as an excuse to post an epic throwback to her days as a high school cheerleader, and it doesn’t seem like she was a very good one. In the funny pic, Lively sits cross-legged on the ground in her “BHS” uniform, while a fellow cheerleader sits on her shoulders, cheering with her pom poms. The 29-year-old actress smiles and raises her arms from her comfortable position on the grass. “I’ve always been impressively athletic…” she captioned the post.
The Ray Donovan star looks almost exactly the same as she did when she was a student at St. John's high school in Toledo, Ohio, as can be seen in a throwback snap Holmes shared on Instagram. "#tbt #high school St. John's musical days #grateful #toledo," Holmes captioned the photo, which showed her flashing a smile as she posed for the camera, huddling with a group of friends.
Kourtney Kardashian and Kris Jenner
Kris Jenner's latest #FBF Instagram post showed her and baby Kourtney Kardashian with matching haircuts.
The 39-year-old Magic Mike hunk took to Twitter to share a headshot from the '90s that proves he’s always been handsome. In the shot, the actor holds his neatly trimmed locks back with his hand and poses for the camera in a suit. “Throwback Thursday… my old headshot from when I was 18 years old. Circa: 1995. #TBT,” he wrote.
The 37-year-old actress and InStyle May 2016 cover star put everything on full display in a one-of-a-kind throwback image. The Almost Famous star took to Instagram to share a photo in which she cheekily flaunts her physique while in the buff. “#TBT PrettyHappy #LOVE #AlmostFriday,” Hudson simply wrote as the caption to the shot.
In honor of Throwback Thursday, The Shallows star shared what might be her best #tbt yet, taking a couple of cracks at herself while she was at it. "There's only one thing more terrifying than this...," Lively captioned a still from her upcoming thriller flick on the 'gram. Lively quickly jokingly showed her followers what could be creepier than that photo when she shared an epic throwback snap. "...THIS," she wrote alongside a snap that showed mini-Blake in full Little Mermaid glory, striking a pose on a rock like Ariel with a smile, with her hair in a high ponytail.
In the #TBT snap, which Manganiello shared to his Instagram account, the actor looks every bit the '90s kid with cropped bleach-blonde hair, dark brows, and a close-shaven face. He looks almost nothing like the man True Blood fans know and love but still recognizable are those eyes and that trademark smirk. "Throw Back Thursday to 1996...," he wrote in the caption.
Katie Holmes celebrated Throwback Thursday, and she shared the sweetest photo from her 5th birthday party, where she looks almost exactly like her 10-year-old daughter Suri Cruise. In the black-and-white snap, Holmes is pictured wearing a birthday hat and ruffled dress as she digs into a plate of food.
Khoe and Kim Kardashian
Kris Jenner took to Instagram to post a photo of her famous daughters Khloé Kardashian and Kim Kardashian West. In the 'gram, a baby Khloé cries as her smiling older sister Kim snaps a selfie. Jenner captioned the photo, "When your big sister puts clip on earrings on you and then takes a selfie to capture the moment.... Lol!!!! @khloekardashian @kimkardashian #memories #family#FBF."
One look at Chrissy Teigen's #wbw throwback bikini shoot, you'd think the Cravings cookbook author has been modeling her entire life—even though she says this was one of her very first shoots. She captioned the photo, "#wbw to one of my first shoots, I think over 10 years ago?? my only dream was to be on the cover of the maxim calendar. And to not tan my face apparently. We nailed it, @justinmacala!"
Kendall and Kylie Jenner
In Kylie's latest 'gram, the very young Jenners are pictured sleeping in white hampers placed side by side—although it's hard to tell if they're actually asleep or simply posing for the camera as the photo was posted without a caption. The siblings have ribbons braided into their hair and seem to be tuckered out from a day of fun.
David Beckham and his Grandfather
The former soccer star took to the social media app to remember his late grandfather. In the black-and-white 'gram, a young Beckham looks handsome dressed up in a suit and tie as he poses for the camera beside his grandfather, who looks equally as dapper in tie, sweater vest, and jacket. "My grandad would have been 90 today ... Someone I miss everyday."

Jacob Tremblay and Sofia Vergara
The 9-year-old actor is already quite the gentleman. Tremblay was thrilled to see his old friend Sofía Vergara at the 2016 Oscars, and later gushed over the Colombian bombshell's age-defying beauty on Instagram. "I have aged SOOO much, but @SofiaVergara hasn't aged a day! #Oscars #TB #regram #myfirstmovie" Tremblay captioned a collage of himself and Vergara.
On the actress's 38th birthday, she took to Instagram to share this too-cute photo of herself as a little girl wearing an "I am a Sesame Street Kid" sweater.
