15 Amanda Bynes' Red Carpet Looks That Prove She's Not Just A Jeans And T-Shirt Girl

It is a well known fact that Hollywood's child stars often go through rough transitional patches on the way to adult stardom. With her reported growing pains in the media spotlight and scattered behavior of late, Amanda Bynes is one such starlet. However, Millennials who were tweens in the early aughts fondly recall her All That days at Nickelodeon and heartwarming romantic comedy films. Bynes is one of those stars who seemed to live in boot-cut jeans and white tees during her teens, slowly graduating to vibrantly hued frocks and body con dresses. Though her hemlines hiked up a few inches between 2000 and 2014 and the denim addiction fell by the wayside, Bynes always appears to wear ensembles in which she feels comfortable.
