Celebrity moms have every advantage offered to them. They have a team of stylists, hairdressers, makeup artists, and trainers to ensure that they look camera ready at all times - whether on the red carpet or on the sidewalk.
Each of them has publicists and handlers working hard to create a polished image. We see these stars on the cover of magazines or on their social media accounts, looking airbrushed and picture perfect. They make flawless appearances on the red carpet, dressed in glamorous gowns.
There are those rare times when a celebrity mom will step out into public looking like all the regular folk. From unwashed hair to a makeup-free face, these ladies look just like the rest of us. They may attempt to sneak around Hollywood looking like an unkempt slob, but the paparazzi are always lurking around the corner just waiting to snap a picture.
Other times, celebrity moms fall victim to major makeup no-nos. What was supposed to be a shining moment on the red carpet is quickly transformed into a glamor oopsies. The flashing bulbs expose all sorts of flaws. It is so refreshing to see these women looking less than perfect.
15 Britney Spears
Eleven years ago, Britney Spears was photographed in the midst of a complete mental breakdown and the results got the media talking. The pop princess had always looked amazing but she put her looks on hold after divorcing from her husband, Kevin Federline.
On February 18, 2007, Britney was fresh out of rehab when she drove herself to Esther’s Haircutting Studio in Tarzana, California. She demanded that the stylist shave her head but when the owner of the salon refused, Britney grabbed the clippers and shaved her own head.
Days later, she had a run-in with a paparazzo and attacked their car with an umbrella. The entire incident went down while Britney was wearing running shorts and a gray hoodie.
14 Mila Kunis
Mila Kunis is a stunning mom to two kids, Wyatt and Dimitri. She is married to Ashton Kutcher and together, they are a super hot couple. She graces many red carpet events looking glamorous and is one of Hollywood’s most exotic beauties. Her unconventional looks set her apart from the rest. Yet, she doesn’t look perfect all the time.
The paparazzi snapped this pic of Mila while leaving the gym in West Hollywood, Los Angeles. She has just finished a workout session with her trainer and was seen wearing baggy sweatpants, no makeup, and has her hair up in a basic ponytail. The starlet was headed to get her nails done and by the looks of the expression on her face, she wasn’t too happy to be snapped looking so disheveled.
13 Jennifer Love Hewitt
Jennifer Love Hewitt is one hot mama to two kids, Autumn and Atticus. Fans watched on as she grew up from an awkward teenager to a gorgeous woman while she starred in the television series, Party of 5. The paparazzi caught her looking like us regular people while she ran errands in Studio City, California and clicked away.
She let her shirt do the talking when she was snapped wearing a top that read "I need coffee” over bright blue sweatpants. Hewitt hilariously attempted to hide behind the tiniest black purse that did little to hide her makeup-free face. Despite wearing baggy clothes, we think that she still looks pretty good. Not many women could get away with leaving the house in this state, but her beauty still shines through.
12 Katie Holmes - All Natural
Katie Holmes is best known for being the ex-wife of the couch-jumping actor, Tom Cruise. She is the mother of Suri Cruise and is a flawless beauty. She showed the world her natural state when she was photographed leaving an organic grocery store in Los Angeles. The paparazzi captured her as Holmes strolled through the parking lot pushing a shopping cart.
The actress almost seemed to glow as she wore absolutely no make up. She opted for a casual look as she ran errands, wearing a denim blouse over a navy blue tank top and black Adidas running pants. Her brunette hair was effortlessly swept up into a top knot. Even though she doesn’t look red carpet ready, we’ve got to give her credit for somehow pulling off this effortless look.
11 Jessica Biel - The Red Eye
Jessica Biel is married to pop star Justin Timberlake. The power couple have a son, Silas. Jessica is one of the most ravishing ladies in Hollywood who is known for her curvy figure and impeccable style. Her red carpet gowns rival the most glamorous women and she even looks put together when she dresses down. Yet, the paparazzi caught her looking totally exhausted.
The actress was snapped leaving the La Guardia airport in New York City. Her flight from South Carolina had landed 3 hours late and by the looks of Jessica, it was a long light. She wore no make up and her hair was pulled back in a ponytail. Her casual green jacket was worn over blue jeans, and tennis shoes.
10 Kourtney And Kim Kardashian
The Kardashian sisters were all matchy matchy when they took a quick trip to the convenience store. Kimmy and Kourtney were spotted in matching over-sized gray sweatshirts, baggy gray sweatpants, and white tennis shoes. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians stars were snapped while posing in front of the store’s refrigerators. Kim posted the pic to Instagram and poked fun at her health-conscious sister with the caption, “When you find out that they don’t carry anything gluten free ?.”
Only these two could make their casual sweatsuits look totally glam. Kim somehow manages to look foxy with her long blond locks and Kourtney looks au natural with her hair pulled back in a messy ponytail. It’s refreshing to see these two celebrity out in public looking slightly less than perfect.
9 Hilary Duff
Hilary Duff first burst on to the scene as a teenager when she played the lead role in the show Lizzie McGuire. She matured into a lovely woman and is now the mom to son, Luca, with ex-husband, Mike Comrie. Her weight has fluctuated since giving birth and she’s become an unofficial spokeswoman for every woman as she’s been known to slam the media for fat-shaming her.
The paparazzi caught her strolling through the streets in her neighborhood located in Toluca Lake, California. Hilary must have just rolled out of bed as she was photographed wearing striped pajama bottoms, a purple tank top, and house slippers. Her hair was pulled back into a loose bun and her face was makeup-free. If only we could all look this adorable first thing in the morning.
8 Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore has been a Hollywood fixture for ages and the actress practically grew up in Tinseltown. She is now the mother of two girls, Olive and Frankie, with her ex-husband, Will Kopelman. Most of the ladies landed on this list for being a bit under-dressed by celebrity standards. Drew was guilty of just the opposite and suffered a total makeup fail.
The incident occurred at the red carpet of the 2003 London premiere of Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle. The actress appeared in photographs with white powder casted all over her face and hair. In Drew’s defense, her make up artist should have been aware that what may not have been seen by the naked eye could be totally exposed in the flash of a camera. Nevertheless, we think Drew should have looked in the mirror before stepping out on the red carpet.
7 Charlize Theron
Charlize Theron is a Hollywood superstar and is the mom of her adoptive children, Jackson and August. She’s a tall drink of water who has been known to own the red carpet with her glamorous looks. Well, Charlize was totally caught by the paparazzi looking less than camera-ready. The actress was spotted on an outing with her son in West Hollywood, California.
The mother and son duo were leaving the grocery store when photographers caught up with them in the parking lot. Charlize was totally dressed down in a sweatpants, a hoodie, and Ugg boots. Her blond hair was pulled back in a harsh bun and her face was make-up free. Despite the fact that she is a bit unpolished, she still looks a million times better than most of us on a good day.
6 Anne Hathaway
Anne Hathaway is an Oscar-winning actress and is the mama to her little boy, Jonathon. She may have gone through a beauty transformation in the film, The Devil Wears Prada, but it looks like she could use a bit of fashion advice in real life. The paparazzi snapped a pic of her looking less than glamorous while out and about in her Prospect Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York.
Anne went totally makeup-free and tossed a beret on her head in hopes of covering up the fact that she didn’t fix her hair before leaving the house. She wore a black jacket over black leggings and black tennis shoes. My guess is that she was headed to the gym in this ensemble.
5 Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie is the mom to her six children, Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh, Vivien, and Knox. She is normally the picture of perfection but she fell victim to a makeup malfunction. She was walking the red carpet in New York City to support of her then-husband, Brad Pitt. The couple posed for photos for the premier of the HBO drama, The Normal Heart. Jolie would have looked amazing in a strapless black Yves Saint Laurent dress and her beautiful shoes, but photographers brought to light a hidden problem.
Just like Drew Barrymore, Jolie’s makeup artist did not consider that the translucent powder she brushed on Angie’s face would totally show up in the camera flashes. What would have been a flawless look was botched in the end.
Adele is a powerhouse singer and mom to her little boy named Angelo. She leads a very private life in London and is rarely seen out in public. It's a rare sighting to see Adele and her family out and about. Fans normally see her all dolled up for red carpet events or in a shimmering gown when she sings on stage. So, the paparazzi jumped to snap pics of her out and about with friends.
Unfortunately, Adele wasn't red carpet ready as she played peek-a-boo with the photographers. Her hair was pulled up in a messy bun and she wore no makeup on her face. She was also wrapped up in a light tan sweater as she waved hi to the photographers.
3 Selma Blair
Selma Blair was walking on the sidewalk when she had a bit of a wardrobe malfunction. The actress was spotted while running errands in Studio City, California. Blair was balancing her then one-year-old son, Arthur, on her hip when he reached down her polka dotted button-up shirt. Luckily, she acted fast
Not only that, but Blair must have been in the throws of motherhood because her belt was totally unbuckled. It’s rare to catch a glimpse of a famous woman looking unpolished. She looks exhausted and not too happy that her little guy could have caused an embarrassing moment. The tired mama simply removed his hand and adjusted her shirt, all while juggling her little in her arms. She should be 'celebrity mom of the year' for pulling off an evasive maneuver like that.
Pink is a total superstar who dresses up in outlandish outfits and can pretty much get away with anything on the red carpet. She’s a mom of two to her kiddos, Willow and Jameson, with her husband Cory Hart. Her carefree style inspires fans all over the world to just be themselves. Yet, even she can look bad now and again.
She was photographed walking her dog in Los Angeles, and by the looks of it, she spent zero effort on herself before walking out the door. Pink still looks great, even though she has one too many hair accessories on her head. She would have been better off with just the hat. My guess is that she wanted to pounce on the paparazzi.
1 Busy Phillips
Busy Phillips is the mother of her two daughters, Cricket and Birdie. She has become a social media mom sensation for her honest posts about motherhood. Fans are accustomed to seeing her grace the red carpet with her best friend, Michelle Williams. The two of them always look so glamorous and put-together. From high-end gowns to expensive jewelry, those ladies are the epitome of high fashion.
So, it’s actually refreshing to see Busy looking like a normal mom. Photographers tracked her down at Hollywood’s hottest work-out place, SoulCycle. She came ready to sweat in a plain t-shirt. Her blond hair is swept up into a messy bun. She’s make-up free and all of her blemishes can be seen. This casual look reminds us that celebs are like the rest of us.
