To be a star, you've got to be a master of reinvention. But this year, some celebs seemed to make it their mission to make us do a double-take. From Janet Jackson's slim down to Ashlee Simpson's nosy question, see whose new looks intrigued us the most in '06. JANET JACKSON Shedding 60 lbs. through five-day-a-week workouts took the 40-year old pop star from heavy to hot this year. ASHLEE SIMPSON Jettisoning her old punk style – and her old profile – the singer debuted a sleeker, sexier look this summer. JENNIFER HUDSON After gaining more than 20 lbs. for her Golden Globe-nominated role as Effie in Dreamgirls, the former Idol shed the weight and embraced a more glamorous red-carpet style. CAMERON DIAZ The quintessential blonde California girl threw everyone for a loop – dyeing her normally sunny locks a dark chocolate brown. WHITNEY HOUSTON Just two weeks after filing for divorce from husband Bobby Brown, a shockingly glam Whitney Houston stepped out with music mogul Clive Davis, sparking hope of a major comeback.
