While some completely wipe the slate clean (we’re looking at you, Lorde!), others simply replace a first or last name. Scroll through to discover the real names your favorite stars were born with, and when you’re ready for even more surprises, check out stars whose real ages will blow your mind.
One thing that’s never gone out of style in Hollywood? Cultivating a unique persona with the help of a stage name. Even today, as social media influences celebrities to be more authentic and accessible, new stars have traded their names for shorter or more-memorable zingers.

If planning your tactical layers – think roll necks beneath a floral dress layered beneath a flowing duster coat – is exhausting and overwhelming you, why not look straight past the next season and daydream about what you’ll be kitting yourself out in once winter is over.
Other than the obvious (is summer even summer without a floral dress/Birkenstock/oversized hat?), you’ll also be wearing low-slung tailoring, puffed shoulders, and showing off your bra. Trust us…
Is there any way we can skip the next six months and wake up in spring?

A Pro Explains Why “Wavy” Nail Art Will Be Fall’s Biggest (and Easiest to DIY) Trend
You’ve seen it on your Instagram feed before: nails with abstract, curvy lines that transform your manicure’s nail art into nail masterpieces. Chief creative officer of Paintbox Nails Eleanor Langston dubs the look “wavy nails” and predicts that it will be even more popular this Fall.
“The organic swerves add interest to your fingertips and elongate your hands,” she previously told POPSUGAR. Though it looks difficult to do yourself, Langston says the design is actually so easy to create. “It’s basically goof-proof because the waves should just flow,” she said. “Every wave doesn’t have to be the exact same, so just start at the upper left-hand corner of your nail and sweep the brush down, curving as you go.”
Pick up a brush and check out the prettiest examples of wavy nail art, ahead.
