Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

As you are probably aware, the 2014 MTV Movie Awards are a mere four days away. One of our favorite categories, especially in a year like this when the competition is so fierce, is Best On-Screen Transformation. To underscore just how incredible these five transformations are, we made GIFs morphing them from their normal, IRL selves into their cinematic alter-egos. Be warned: They're totally mesmerizing. Writing this post took me an extra 20 minutes because I kept watching Orlando Bloom change into Legolas. Now that it's finished, I will resume my watching.

JARED LETO INTO RAYON IN 'DALLAS BUYERS CLUB'

Movie Awards

For his role in Dallas Buyers Club, Jared Leto lost 30 pounds and lived as his character, Rayon. As you can see in the GIF, his face grew thinner, he lost his beard and eyebrows, and became an expert at contouring. Whether the world's most perfect ombre is under that cap, we may never know.

Jared Leto

Transformation timeline from Echelon to Rayon

Jared Leto is a man of many talents. In addition to fronting Thirty Seconds to Mars and having some seriously enviable ombre hair to ever grace this Earth, he beautifully portrayed a transsexual AIDS patient named Rayon in Dallas Buyers Club. Jared went through a major physical change in a short amount of time for the role, so we figured, in honor of Jared's nomination for Best Supporting Actor, we would take a look back (mostly via Leto's own Instagram) at his transformation. Let's get this started.

Before undertaking the role of Rayon, Jared had a full beard and impersonated Abe Lincoln for fun. He wore his hair in a man bun.

We tune in to Saturday Night Live pretty much every week (at least whenever they air a new episode, and the weekend's team-up of the equal parts gorgeous and hilarious Sofia Vergara on hosting duties with burgeoning boy band One Direction as the musical guest was definitely an ep we were antcipating with bated breath. While we would have been perfectly content just seeing the boys grace the stage in their go-to collegiate coordinates, Lorne and the SNL team had an extra special style Easter egg for us this holiday weekend: a MAJOR One Direction makeover!!

One of the greatest things about growing up is looking back on your personal style evolution and realizing how far you've come. Sure there are looks you can laugh at in your past (you better believe jeggings and joggs will come back to haunt you), but then there are those wardrobe epiphanies that move life stylishly forward. It's humbling to see that stars (they're just like us!) go through the same evolution we do—only they do it much quicker and for all the world to see. If we had to give an award to someone truly SLAYING IT in the style evolution department, though, the periwinkle blue ribbon would go to Dianna Agron, aka Glee's Quinn Fabray. A rising star of both the small and big screen, she is now a bona fide STYLE SENSATION, too. Thus, in honor of the opening of the Glee Live! In Concert! movie, we'd like to present her complete style transformation...

Justin Timberlake kept his grooming pretty mild this year. His hair and facial fuzz always looked scruffy, a look that shined when he made the rounds promoting The Social Network last month. But it's all gone now! Just last week the singer/fashion designer/all-around hustler stepped on the set of his latest movie I'm.Mortal with a shaved head. He looks so fresh! So clean! So ... OK, we'll just say it: sexy. And we've seen this before. Justin's latest hair change is just another in the long line of Justin Timberlake's Ongoing Hair Transformation. Here, we take a look at the past 13 years of Justin Timberlake's hair, from *NSYNC curls to a military buzz cut to scruffy and fuzzy to what we have now — hot, shaved, and sexy. Take a look below, and tell us, what's your favorite Justin look?

The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. For the past two weeks, we've been taking a look at the transformations of each star. Today we bring you our final transformation: Angelina Pivarnick. How did she go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

Angelina Pivarnick was certainly not the most popular member of the the Jersey Shore house, but that's not what we judge here at MTV Style. Here, we're looking at her fashion choices. And, oh, how she's changed! In the year since Jersey Shore premiered, Angelina has cleaned up her act — or her style, at least. In a word, she simplified. Gone are the odd layers and excessive makeup. Now, her look is streamlined and minimal. She's also wearing less black and more colors, and clear gloss rather than berry lips. She even booked a modeling gig. Overall, we think it's an upgrade! But what do you think? Check out this gallery of Angelina's style transformation and see for yourself.

The Situation's evolution of abs.

The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. As we wind down from last week's finale of season two, we're taking a look at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. How did he go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino was the least modest member of the Jersey Shore cast from day one, shamelessly flaunting his eight-pack abs — or, uh, Situation — for all to see. And considering he's made a career of it, it's no wonder he hasn't stopped. At all. Whether he's at a red carpet event or just walking down the street, The Situation will pull up his shirt and show off his abs in any situation possible. In that sense, he has stayed the same. As for his style — that also showed minimal change. He still wears sneakers to formal events, as well as Ed Hardy and other printed tees. Take a look in this gallery of The Situation's style transformation and see for yourself.

The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. As we wind down from last week's finale of season two, we're taking a look at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Jenni "JWOWW" Farley. How did she go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

Jenni "JWOWW" Farley is one Jersey Shore superstar who took her makeover into her own hands — and it shows. When she first started the show, she overloaded on makeup and wore all kinds of mismatching outfits. Now, she stripped off all the extras, and let her natural JWOWW shine through. Her standard look has become something totally different than before: Her makeup is clean, and she wears clothes that cover up — an upgrade all around. What a difference a year can make! Take a look in this gallery of JWOWW's style transformation and see for yourself.

As we wind down from last week's finale of season two, we're taking a look at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio. How did he go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

Another day, another Jersey Shore style transformation. While Sammi and Snooki both visibly changed a lot in the year since the show aired on MTV, the boys weren't as chameleon-like. Take, for instance, Pauly D. His style has remained quite steady this year, despite more attention and more red carpets. One of his favorite looks has not wavered one bit — a plaid shirt, jeans, and high-top sneakers. The only difference? He's tanner. How Jersey of him! But take a look in this gallery of Pauly D's style transformation and see for yourself.

The 'Jersey Shore' cast has come a long way since the show first premiered on MTV in December 2009. And their styles have evolved as well. As we gear up for the finale of season two (airing tonight at 10/9c on MTV), we're looking at the transformations of each star. Today we take a look at Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. How did she go from Shore to Superstar? Let's take a look …

We've been looking at the style transformations of Jersey Shore cast members all week, and today we've come to one of the biggest transformations of them all — Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. When Snooki first emerged, she popularized the pouf and mixed it with orange tans, thick eyeliner, heavy bronzer, and pale lips. But over the past year, she tweaked the look so it's sleeker, got bangs, kept her straggly ends trimmed, and dyed her hair red (twice). As for clothing, she hasn't ditched her signature leopard print, though she is wearing more flattering clothes that still show off her Snooki personality. Overall, we're calling this year a continuous upgrade for Snooki's style! But take a look in this gallery of Snooki's style transformation and see for yourself.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
