Before she was Giuliana Rancic
, wife to Bill Rancic
, mom to Duke
, host of E! News
and Fashion Police
, journalist & reality star extraordinaire, she was plain old Giuliana DePandi! She was always gorgeous & always hilarious, so for today’s #FirstFriday, let’s take a look back at when Giuliana FIRST burst onto the scene as E!’s go-to reporter to the stars.
October 2003: Before she became a fixture on E!, Giuliana was seen at many events around town—here she is at a Richard Tyler Fashion Show sporting some lighter locks!
November 2003: And lest we forget, Bill wasn’t the only man who captured her heart. For several years, she dated actor Jerry O’Connell (pre-Rebecca Romijn, of course) and rocked a KILLER jean onesie. So 2003, so good.
January 2004: Doubt we’d see G in such a corporate suit these days, but back in 2004, she had to look the part of a serious entertainment reporter! Here she is celebrating A&E’s 20th Anniversary in NYC.
June 2004: But on the red carpet is where she belongs—here she is sporting her signature early aught's blonde do' at the 10th Annual SAG Awards.
Continuing to make the rounds at all the biggest events in Hollywood, G stopped by a Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle
premiere event with fellow entertainment news reporter Maria Menounos
. We’ll let the gals defend these denim clothing choices, though...
By this time, G was starting to look more like the hot mama we know and love today. Here she poses with fellow E! personalities (at the time, that is) Brooke Burke
and Bobbie Thomas
at the 62nd Golden Globe Awards.
April 2007: And obviously we had to finish up with an oldie but goodie—G and fiance Bill pose on the red carpet at a Race to Erase MS Event. Cuties!
