Nineties rapper Lil Kim recently stunned us all with a shocking transformation that left her looking like an entirely different person.
Posting selfies to her Instagram page, the star appeared to flaunt more taut, and bizarrely much lighter coloured skin.
Pouting in a blonde wig, followers of Lil Kim responded with mixed reactions, with some suggesting Kim must “dislike” herself a lot to have undergone such an image overhaul.
But extreme celebrity transformations are plentiful and we’ve taken a look at some of the most drastic cases.
If we’re talking radical changes in image, then Kylie Jenner has to top the bill.
Still only 18, we’ve watched Kylie change everything from her body shape, face, hair and especially those plumped-up lips.
Admitting she regularly has lip fillers, the reality star openly addresses just how much she’s changed thanks to surgery over the years – and even jokingly posted a picture to her Instagram of her old lips .
Plastic surgeon to the stars, Dr Simon Ourian recently spoke about Kylie’s incredible metamorphosis over the last few years.
He said: “Kylie has become very wise in what she wants to have done. She’s been going through an amazing metamorphosis over the past couple of years.”
Former Sugababes star Mutya Buena shot to fame in the 90s girl band – but she has completely transformed after leaving the spotlight more than 10 years ago.
Revealing extensive tattoos, huge muscles, and dramatic make-up, the star looked completely unrecognisable when she was spotted on a night out earlier this year.
The 30-year-old wore a bum-skimming black mini dress, revealing her tattooed chest and arms.
Showing off her heavy body art, the star smiled happily at cameras, wearing dramatic purple lippy and keeping her hair tightly tied back for the evening.
Mutya was barely recognisable compared to her relatively modest looks in the Sugababes era.
Naturally, when any teen pop sensation grows up their looks will change.
But with the change in Justin’s physical looks, came a radical overhaul of his whole image.
From a floppy-haired hitmaker who shot to fame at 14, to the ultimate party boy, often making headlines for all the wrong reasons, Bieber started to look and behave like an entirely different person.
Now aged 22, Justin has sported a long list of hairstyles, before finally settling on some surfer-style blonde locks…for now.
While she may have taken things a little slower than Kylie Jenner, Cheryl looks spectacularly different compared to her first appearance on ITV’s Popstars: The Rivals.
The Geordie beauty has gone from fully embracing the nineties look with midrift-flashing tops, to a regular stunner on the red carpet.
Now sporting beautiful flowing locks, we’re pretty sure the Fight For This Love singer would never dream of stepping out with cornrows these days.
In the last 12 years, the 30-year-old has joined a girl band, been married twice, eaten a KitKat on a cloud, joined X Factor to flirt with Simon, made red military type outfitssexy and almost died from Malaria.
She’s done a lot.
Finding fame on Disney’s Hannah Montanna show, Miley flew onto our radar at the tender age of 13.
Now 23, the super sweet teen image is long gone, and we’re more used to seeing theWrecking Ball singer in some pretty daring outifts.
It’d be hard to sum-up Miley’s new style, as you never know exactly what she’s about to step out in next, with a lot of her wardrobe only borderline passing as actual clothing.
But with the image overhaul, came the incredible career change, and we now all have Miley to thank for the world famous twerk.
Justin Timberlake began is journey to worldwide fame as a child when he appeared on Star Search and the All New Mickey Mouse Club,
Then in the late 1990s, Justin started to become a household name as one of the lead vocalists in NSYNC.
Opting for that slightly dodgy looking bleached AND permed hair, Justin was the epitome of a 90s boy band fashion icon.
Now, an older and wiser 35-year-old Justin cuts a stylish figure, ditching the baggy clothes for snappy suits.
Poker Face singer Lady Gaga has to have one of the most unique fashion senses on the celebrity scene.
To name a few of her crazy outifts, Gaga has been papped wearing a meat dress, a 6ft 3D star, a Christmas tree, a Picasso painting, shell bras, latex and of course…antlers.
But the 30-year-old star seems to have toned things down and now leaves the protein-based clothing at home.
What list of celebrity transformations would be complete without Kim Kardashian ?
In 2005, Kimmy K was only just starting to make a name for herself, and sported a radically different look on the red carpet.
With tonged curls, heavy black eye-shadow and almost a different shaped face altogether, the star is unrecognisable compared to her updated super-sleek look.
Kim recently opened up about her changing image and admitted to having her baby hairs lasered .
Writing on her website , the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star confessed: “I lasered my baby hairs off years ago, because my forehead had all these little baby hairs, and I would always break out because of them.”
