Drew Barrymore has been in the spotlight for 35 years, starring in countless stunning fashion shoots and photo ops throughout her time as an actress, producer, and entrepreneur. But the shots from her post-E.T. days are iconic in a singular way, those 1980s photographs of a young girl catapulted into super-stardom.
