A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (or at least it seems like it), a number of Hollywood A-listers used to model clothes for Abercrombie & Fitch.

Some of these young men and women look like they were designed to wear the famous brand, while others who once modeled it will likely surprise you.

Especially #7. We did not see that one coming one bit ...

Jennifer Lawrence
Oh yes, that's a young Jennifer Lawrence, the most beautiful Abercrombie model (or possibly human being) of all time.

It's hard to believe that before she was winning Oscars, posing for magazine covers, and ruling Hollywood, a young Jennifer Lawrence was doing this.

And yet at the same time, it's not. Just look at her.

She was just about the most naturally beautiful human being to ever exist on the planet, and she still is. Channing Tatum modeling for Abercrombie?

Similarly believable and as epic as you would think.

It wasn't long ago that Gossip Girl premiered on the CW and quickly became the hottest show on TV, buoyed by some of the hottest young celebrities around.

Well, we suppose 2007 is sort of a long time ago. But it feels like it was yesterday!

Upon hearing the exciting news that Ryan Reynolds got Blake Lively pregnant, we got to thinking about what the her former co-stars are up to these days.

The answer, at least in some cases? More than you might think. In other cases ...

Blake Lively
Blake Lively, after closing the book on Serena van der Woodsen, married her Green Lantern co-star Ryan Reynolds and is now pregnant with their first child. Since Gossip Girl wrapped, she moved on to film projects as an actress, and has kept a pretty low-profile, which doesn't always mesh with her fashion icon status and being named one of TIME‘s 100 Most Influential People. She also launched a new lifetyle website, Preserve, on which she revealed her pregnancy.

Their careers may have peaked on the Upper East Side in the late 2000s.

We're not trying to be harsh, but where has Chace Crawford been? Ed Westwick? For a time, the BFFs were the "it" guys of teenybopper TV. Nowadays?

You'll have to click through the gallery above to find out the answer.

Some cast members would likely prefer you not watch Gossip Girl online marathons so as to appreciate some of their more recent, and refined, work.

Michelle Trachtenberg takes on the role of Marina Oswald in National Geographic Channel's Killing Kennedy, a biopic chronicling the final years of JFK.

Oswald, of course, was the wife of Lee Harvey Oswald, the man who killed the President of the United States nearly 50 years ago in November 1963.

A photo of Michelle in character as his Russian immigrant wife has just been released. Check her out look as a nearly unrecognizable '60s housewife:

Based on the book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, Killing Kennedy stars none other than Parks and Recreation star Rob Lowe as John F. Kennedy.

Pete Wentz and Michelle Trachtenberg were spotted in L.A. this weekend grabbing coffee ... and each other! Well, maybe. There wasn't exactly blatant PDA, but they sparked rumors that fireworks may be flying well beyond July 4.

In light of his pending divorce from Ashlee Simpson, could Wentz and Trachtenberg – who were an item years ago – be rekindling their romance?

Their outing comes shortly after Ashlee Simpson and Vincent Piazza of Boardwalk Empire were linked romantically. Perhaps both are moving on.

Trachtenberg's and Wentz's respective reps had no comment. It will be interesting to see if Pete and the recurring Gossip Girl star keep hanging out.

Despite their estrangement, there appears to be no bad blood between the parents as they took son Bronx to lunch in Studio City, Calif., recently.

Sometimes, good celebrity fashion statements can happen to bad people. Wait, reverse that. These are some good people with questionable style.

Jessica Simpson's sparkly dress clings in all the wrong places while concealing her best assets, bringing back memories of the chili cook-off days.

Meanwhile, Michelle Trachtenberg's dress adds width to her midsection and the too-tight pencil skirt draws attention to her hips. Kind of rough!

According to readers, Nina Dobrev is not cuter than Kristen Stewart.

We understand. The star of the upcoming CW show, The Vampire Diaries, must earn herself a spot among Hollywood's young elite.

But give Dobrev credit for getting up, dusting herself off from the aforementioned defeat and taking up another battle.

Last week, the actress was spotted out in the same Rebecca Minkoff dress that fellow rising star Michelle Trachtenberg was seen in. Compare the looks below and answer our poll question that follows:

Ashlee Simpson is married to Pete Wentz and she's the mother of his child, but the no-talent hack is still insecure when it comes to his former flames.

Out-of-control Ash loudly trash-talked Gossip Girl star Michelle Trachtenberg Monday night at the "DJ Hero" party at LA's Wiltern Theatre, reports say.

The trouble started when Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson were seated near Trachtenberg, who dated Wentz before the Fall Out Boy bassist met Ash.

"The evening started off very civilly," reports the New York Post. "Pete and Ashlee had a pleasant conversation with Michelle and her boyfriend for close to 20 minutes, even showing [Trachtenberg] some baby pictures of [their baby] Bronx."

But then Ashlee Simpson started drinking and all hell broke loose.

An increasingly loud Simpson began to give Wentz a lap dance while staring directly at Michelle and hurling insults at her: "She was grinding up on Pete like a stripper. It was actually pretty disgusting," a witness said.

Things reached a climax when Simpson, who just landed a role in the CW's remake of Melrose Place, screamed at a confused Michelle Trachtenberg, "I hope you know, the whole time you were dating Pete, I was [bleep]ing him!"

Classy.

Jessica's younger sis had to be restrained at the event, where Jay-Z and Eminem performed. Ashlee Simpson was eventually dragged away by bystanders.

Who would you root for in a fight?

God bless Kim Kardashian. And her giant breasts, of course.

At a recent pool party hosted by NIVEA, fellow celebrities such as Emmy Rossum and Michelle Trachtenberg looked nice, pretty and conservative.

Look at My Watch!

But not our gal, Kim. She rocked a boob-enhancing swimsuit as she tackled the NIVEA-sponsored "Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini Challenge."

The beauty company is challenging stars to shed a few extra pounds and Kardashian - who previously spoke proudly about her curves - seems up to the task.

"I am definitely interested in improving the appearance of cellulite," she said. "That's why I'm taking the "NIVEA Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini Challenge" - its combination of nutrition, fitness, style and skin care expertise work together to help me look and feel my bikini best."

Take a look at Kardashian bikini pics now and let us know: does she really have to change anything?
