Ariana Says Yes to the Dresses, 2014
Coming up through Nickelodeon with the usual squeaky-clean, kid-actress image, Grande wasted no time shedding that as soon as proper adulthood allowed. In 2014, she rocked a number of memorably, unabashedly bodycon outfits. A-plus choices included a black-and-white patent-leather mini dress at the Billboard Music Awards, a crop top and shorts in Cosmopolitan and three different pairs of thigh-high boots at the VMAs. Some folks tried to make this a thing, but Grande couldn't be bothered to give the tabloid talk any attention.
