As one of the most famous and photographed women on the planet, Kim Kardashian is used to drawing attention wherever she goes.
And she’s certainly no stranger to dramatic makeovers, to the delight of fans, and her latest look is no exception.
The 41-year-old platinum blonde star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians has racked up more than 4 million likes for an Instagram photo showing her increasingly petite figure after losing 21 pounds in sheer The Incredibles t-shirt.
When it comes to her image, the mom-of-four, who is currently in a long-distance relationship with comedian Pete Davidson, looks very different from her early years as she constantly reinvents herself.
Here we take a look at her dramatic body transformation, from surgery rumors to drastic weight loss.
Grunge Teenage Years to Fame
Kim’s current look is very different from her teenage years, and old photos show that at some point she adopted a typical “grunge” look.
The undated photos Kim shared on Instagram show her posing for the camera in baggy jeans, a choker necklace and a white t-shirt.
In other images, Kim has a fresh face and naturalness before she became famous hugging her little sister Kendall.
In 2006, 26-year-old Kim became famous for being Paris Hilton’s best friend and assistant.
She also looked completely different, especially her nose, although the star has always denied having had surgery and has often attributed the clever contours to her starkly different appearance.
Speaking to Kristen Bell Tattoos, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Mark Solomos said: “In 2006, Kim sported a relatively natural look.
“The contours of her breasts look natural, albeit perky. Therefore, this could mean that she had a minor breast augmentation.
“Her eyes and lips seem natural, and her complexion is clear and dewy.
“Her flawless skin could very well be due to her youth at this stage rather than any interventions.”
Sex Tapes and Playboy Filming
In 2007, a sex tape of Kim and former Ray Jay was leaked online, and it was this, combined with the start of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, that brought Kim worldwide fame.
In the same year, Kim posed nude for Playboy. In an interview, she said, “Of course you are nervous and you want more time to work out.
“But I’m proud to be able to show people who I am. You always see typical skinny models, and I’m not like that, and I’m proud that I’m not like that.”
slacker with internet
While Kim has always been proud of her curves, in 2010 her butt really started to get some recognition.
In fact, there was so much interest in Kim’s figure that she even offered to get an x-ray on Keeping Up with the Kardashians to prove she didn’t have butt implants.
But experts point out that if she had her own fat pumped back up her ass, it wouldn’t show up on the scan.
“In 2012, something strange happens to Kim’s buttocks,” Dr. Fulvio Urso-Bayarda previously told Kristen Bell Tattoos.
“Not only are we starting to see an increase in width for the first time, but the gluteal crease (the line between the buttock and the thigh) is leaning down and inward.
“I suspect it’s because her buttocks were weighed down with fat grafts, which wouldn’t happen naturally.”
In 2014, the star even “blew up the Internet” with a cover shoot for Paper magazine, which quickly went viral.
As her butt grew, Kim’s waist seemed to shrink. This was most evident when she attended the Met Gala in 2019 wearing Thierry Mugler’s iconic custom-made gown.
The dress was so tight that the star had to go to “breathing lessons in a corset” and she could not go to the bathroom in a dress.
In 2020, she claimed to have a 24″ waist and 39″ hips.
Recently, Kim has undergone a huge hair transformation, with her trademark dark brunette locks now platinum blonde, and she also looks increasingly slim in the photos.
She first shed 16 pounds ahead of the Met Gala 2022 to squeeze into Marilyn Monroe’s famous gold dress.
However, since then, the beauty has continued to lose weight, shedding another 5 pounds after giving up junk food.
She said: “I am no longer trying to lose weight, but I have more energy than ever. I gave up sugar.
“I ate a lot of junk food. I didn’t even realize it. Lots of fried food. And I completely changed my lifestyle.”
Not afraid to try something new, no matter what look she chooses, Kim always pulls it off.
