When you think of modern beauty trendsetters, who comes to mind? Lady Gaga. Gwen Stefani. And of course, Fergie.

The star is certainly not shy about stepping out in wild hair and makeup, and we dug deep into the archives to pull her best (and some might say worst) looks over the years.

Check 'em out!

Beauty Evolution: Fergie

    Recognize the woman on the left? It's Stacy Ferguson, an ambitious young singer in '90s girl group Wild Orchid. But you may know her better as the booty-shaking, lady lump-loving, trend-setting, BEP alum Fergie. What did it take to go from bleached-out pop singer to blinged-out front woman? Read on to see her amazing beauty evolution from then to now. By Marissa Gold

    Stacy Ferguson makes a public appearance with Wild Orchid in '98.

    Stacy (here in October '98) had mastered two key 90's beauty trends: Pamela Anderson-esque highlights and obviously lined lips.

    In February of '99, Stacy sported a complicated hairdo full of knots and braids on a night out.

    While performing onstage in August of 1999, Stacy shines in matching metallic lipstick and eyeshadow.

    By January of 2000, Stacy's roots were showing, which we take as a sign that the star was craving a new look. Think she changes it up?

    Barely recognizable in February of 2001, Stacy is in her final days with Wild Orchid and already experimenting with the funky looks she'll soon be known for. Here, she sports a two-tone hairdo with Bettie Page bangs.

    Fergie Ferg is born! With her signature pouf and wraparound braid, the new BEP front woman stepped out in July of 2001.

    Fergie wears excessive extensions and accessorizes her newly darkened locks with a giant red flower in September of 2003. We wish naturally gorgeous Ferguson had toned down the too-dark makeup.

    In November of 2003, Fergie's hair became a mass of twisted braids. We can't say we love the hard look on her, but her eye makeup is, by contrast, very natural and pretty.
