Red carpet master Ryan Seacrest through the years in pictures from 2002 to today

This was posted on Saturday, February 24, 2017 by Rodney Ho on his AJC Radio & TV Talk blog

Ryan Seacrest, who is now 42, has now been in the public spotlight for nearly 15 years - or more like 25 years locally if you count his time as a teen-age DJ on Star 94 here in Atlanta while he attended Dunwoody High School.

His look has shifted over time, though he's been more consistent in recent years. Those early years are especially painful and he's joked about his blond tips and spiked hair. Since then, he has occasionally frisked his hair into a little peak.

You'll see plenty more of him on E! for the Oscar red carpet on Sunday.

Here he is, from ages 27 to 42, year by year:
