The first few weeks of the new year are a great time to look back over the last 12 months and think about how things have changed. Change can be good because it helps us recognize what’s already there, the way Emma Stone’s wavy bob refreshed her youthful beauty.

But the best changes simply amaze us. Click the style notes for a look back at the year’s best transformations.  –Laura Martin
