This is the Ariana Grande you all know and love. Glam makeup, ultra luxxe hair, THAT ponytail.

But this was Ariana Grande in 2008 at her first ever red carpet appearance.

The natural curls. The baseball tee. THE BOOTS. We are living for all of it and cannot ever believe we forgot about this era in Ariana’s life.

This appears to be for an event tied to a Broadway performance called “13” that she was in at the time.

If this was the year 2008, that would make Ariana 15 years old in these photos.

Awww bb Ariana we love you!
