When she entered the industry it was already going through a change catching up to the latest style worldwide. Her fashion transformation truly happened in Cocktail.
After that, she has always looked more beautiful than before. Grace is a word that has been associated with her since day one.

Their clothes were an equal mess with low cut embroidered jeans and unflattering bright colored tops. If you want to see for yourself check her movies between 2000-2005.
