Talk about a blast from the past!

Giada De Laurentiis shared a funny snapshot on Instagram Friday, posing for a yearbook picture during her very awkward phase.

"#FlashbackFriday My 80's look!" the Food Network star captioned the hilarious pic.

In the photo, a young Giada is sporting a short, curly 'do, bushy eyebrows and a mouth full of braces.

The brunette beauty is known for her ability to make cooking look effortless (no fair), not to mention she's really hot -- but she clearly grew into her looks!

"My hair's curly and growing up, I didn't do squat with it because I disliked it," she told Allure back in 2012. "My mom kept it super short, so until I was 12 and grew boobs, everyone thought I was a boy. I never brush my hair -- if I did, it'd be out to here." 

It's a good thing Giada learned to deal with her wild curls!
