Old yearbook photos have a way of making people cringe but Rachel Maddow should be proud of hers – that is if she can even recognize her old self!

Check out the MSNBC host's photo from Castro Valley High School in California, featuring Maddow in an off-the-shoulder black top with earrings. And could that be a pearl necklace?

Gone is her long blonde hair, which has since been replaced with a much shorter, cropped brunette 'do. She's also added black-rimmed glasses to her grown-up look.

As she once told PEOPLE, while girlfriend Susan Mikula is definitely a girlie-girl, "I look like a dude."
