15 Hot (And Not So Hot) Photos Of Kylie Jenner's Transformation

With word on the streets that Kylie Jenner is about to star in her own new reality television series "The Life of Kylie," people can't stop talking about the youngest member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan. Okay, maybe we're exaggerating a bit, but it seems like we can't go a day without hearing about Kylie, who seems to have wrestled away the limelight from her older sisters from the Kardashian side of the family.

Everyone seems to have an opinion about the new Hollywood bombshell. For some reason -- well, there are many reasons, actually, which we'll address -- people either love her or hate her. And there doesn't appear to be any middle ground when it comes to how people feel about how she looks or who she truly is as a person.

Many of her fans not only adore her for her newfound beauty but also feel that she's a very hardworking entrepreneur who works tirelessly at shaping her ever-expanding business empire, which includes a clothing line, a jewelry line, and a cosmetics line called "Kylie Cosmetics" -- which also has an app that reached number 1 on the iTunes App Store -- along with her career as a reality television star, a model, and a social media personality. Not to mention, she has all her charity work as well.

On the other hand, her detractors feel that her "beauty" was purchased over the years through various plastic surgeries. They label her as a fake and are convinced that she's only been able to enhance her looks because of these numerous cosmetic surgeries. They also feel that her career as an entrepreneur was gifted to her because of her fame, her fortune, and, of course... her family name.

As the debate rages on, we'll try to focus on what's really on everyone's mind -- how Kylie looks so much different than she did when she was younger. From her face to almost her entire body, she's definitely changed -- as most people do when they go through puberty -- but Kylie's transformation seems to be a little more extreme than in most other cases.

Before And After

Here's a "Before and After" photo of Ms. Kylie Jenner. Do you notice any difference? If you're wondering if it's the same person, it is. Now keep in mind, Kylie has only ever admitted to having her lips done through a lip augmentation, which is obvious from the photo. From many other photos, though, it appears she might have had a little more work done to her face, not to mention the rest of her body.

Her chin also seems to be less pointy and more curved. Perhaps it's just the layers of thick makeup, but there's definitely a noticeable change, especially when you get a full frontal view of the 'before and after' shot. As for the eyelashes, eyelids, and skin tone, everything seems different. Glad she ditched the '70s hairstyle, too.

Light Blue Look

Back to the hair again, which is a constant theme when it comes to Kylie. This time, she switched to light blue for the Grand Opening of the Bellami Beauty Bar. She's also showing off jewelry from her personal collection. According to Wikipedia, "In July 2013, the Jenner sisters launched a jewelry line with Pascal Mouawad's Glamhouse to create the Metal Haven by Kendall & Kylie jewelry collection."

She also appears to be more voluptuous than in previous years. Are 'they' natural, or did she have some work done? She's denied, on many occasions, to having any extra work done, other than her lips, but since she's a Kardashian/Jenner we're leaning toward the cosmetic assistance. Again, that would be the safe bet.

Before And After Part 2

Another shocking 'before and after' photo of Kylie Jenner. Again, it's hard to imagine that this is the same person. If her claims of not having any 'work done' other than her lips are true, then there must be some sort of cocoon at the Kardashian residences, because it's difficult to imagine that she just naturally transformed into how she looks today.

Kylie would probably be appalled to see the photo of her former self on the right, especially with that old-school hairstyle. Seriously, what was she thinking? Okay, she was young and probably didn't know any better, so we'll give her the benefit of the doubt. This is probably why Kylie is so obsessed with hair nowadays. By the way, I've said the word 'hair' about 150 times so far in this article. Just sayin'....

Also, notice the difference in her nose in both shots. She had to have gotten some work done, or that's one serious makeup job.

Neon Yellow

Kylie debuted her new neon yellow hair on her Instagram account shortly after breaking up with her now ex-boyfriend, Tyga. By the way, she posts about a million photos a day on her Instagram and Snapchat accounts. That's what she does best: post selfies and photos of herself.

She went on to attend Coachella, separately from her recently dumped Tyga, of course. Her new look yellow hair grabbed all the attention, as did her backside, which seems to have undergone quite a transformation over the last couple of years. She probably won't admit that she had any work done to her buttocks, but neither did her sister, Kim. If we had to take a guess, we'd bet the farm on some sort of work being done, especially if you see the difference from photos of Kylie taken in previous years.

Not So Hot

The problem with too much makeup, or too much plastic surgery, or both, is that it can have a negative effect on your appearance, especially in those awkward or emotional moments.

We can't tell if Kylie is actually laughing or crying in this photo. Is she happy or sad? Who knows? The fact that we're confused is not a good thing, and this close up is not one of her better shots.

Speaking of shots, it looks like someone stuck a needle in her face one too many times. To be honest, she looks old -- at least a lot older than her 19 years of age. She looks like one of those older women who put on a ton of makeup to try and make themselves look younger, or more attractive, which usually ends up not working out and has them looking more like what you see above in the photo. Not good.

Calendar Shoot

Here we have Kylie doing one of her famous calendar shoots -- the Terry Richardson calendar shoot, to be more precise, whoever that is. Kylie looks a lot better in this shot, showing off her curves with her long blonde hair. It's amazing how often she changes her hairstyle; hopefully, she'll still have hair by the time she reaches her mom's age. Either way, when you have that kind of money and entourage, it's a lot easier to do, and the results are worth it -- for us, at least.

Kylie loves taking photos, as we mentioned before. The photos and hair changes are done on a daily basis. Some would say she's a tad bit of a narcissist; others would claim she's just showing off her sexiness, but we have to agree that it's one of her better shots. The bike is really cool, too.


Here's a rare photo of 17-year-old Kylie Jenner without her makeup on. We can clearly see from this shot that she's in the middle of her transition from her younger teen years to her late teens, with a mix of both looks rolled into one. The photo clearly shows what her real lips look like without makeup and lip injections.

Aside from the lips, her hair and wardrobe were apparently in transition as well. It's hard to imagine Kylie wearing that type of clothing nowadays. As for the hair, which is a massive part of her new look, it appears to be a bit nappy, and the coloring is only partially done. Haven't seen Kylie without perfectly combed and coiffed hair in a long time. She probably wouldn't be too happy about this picture or this look if it were recent.

Transition Part Two

As you can see, the transition to the Kylie of today is almost complete. Earlier we showed a transition picture of Kylie just starting to transition, but as you can see in this one, she's a bit further along in the process. The hair is now beginning to transform from the nappy look from before -- you can obviously see that there have been some focus and attention in that department. The clothing is now more sophisticated and 'adult' as well. As for the lips, we're not quite sure what happened there, but we can only imagine that the lip injections have just started, so that's why we see some unevenness, especially on her upper lip. Perhaps they were in the middle of treatment, and she decided to pose for a quick photo, not realizing that they need to stick the needle in the other side, too.

Bikini Time

Celebrities, just like the rest of us, love going to the beach. Everybody needs a little R and R, but for the famous, it's a golden opportunity to show off the goods, as well as the fashion sense. Kylie is right up there with the rest of the celebs in that category. Apparently, Kylie must be hitting the changing room every 5 minutes to put on a new bathing suit. In this series, we see 3 different looks, all with the same hair, so she probably packed several bathing suits for the occasion, one for each day, at least. After all, she knows the paparazzi are lurking, so she has to look her best. We doubt she even got her hair wet. That would be a major faux pas. Do you really need a 'choker' around your neck if you're going swimming, though? Didn't think so.

The New Kylie

So this is the Kylie we all know and love/hate today from fake eyelashes to some crazily colored hairdo to maximize the attention she so desperately seeks. It's all about fashion and image in Kylie's world, which requires a constant, daily change to her look, which, at the end of the day, all look the same. At least she matches her hair and nail colors, so you can't accuse her of not being consistent.

When she's ready for the close-up shots, she can look quite stunning, but when she's caught off guard... well, you saw the results earlier. So how do you feel about this transformation? Are you one of those who feel that she looks super hot, or super fake? Or do you wish that Kylie and the rest of her family would just go away and never be heard from or seen again?


Fashion and clothing are a big part of Kylie Jenner's life and identity, and when a teenage girl is rich and can afford to buy what she wants, you basically get a different look every single day. That's exactly the scenario in Kylie's world. That must be some walk-in closet. She probably has several walk-in closets with all the clothes she has.

Here she is donning a Louis Vuitton semi-attached two piece -- I can't believe I just said that. It actually looks pretty hot. Of course, this was posted on one of her social media sites so she could drive all the boys crazy, make all the girls jealous, and show off, which she's absolutely addicted to. One has to wonder... does she just wear each outfit once every single time? It's not easy to find her wearing the same thing twice, ever.

Barbie Doll

Now, when you're trying to convince the public that you haven't had any plastic/cosmetic surgery, the last thing you probably want to do is dress up like a real-life Barbie doll, but that's exactly what Kylie did when she posed for 'Flaunt" Magazine earlier this year. The shoot was labeled 'Human Barbie Doll,' and Kylie gave her maximum effort to resemble the plastic toy, which everyone uses as a reference to someone who's had too much plastic surgery. Obviously, Kylie could care less, as it gave her another opportunity to dye her hair and flash a different look.

She may look hot to some, but others feel that her 'changes' really stick out -- no pun intended. Look at those new curves. And if you see the close-up shots, you'll notice the insane amounts of makeup she has on. You probably need a sandblaster to remove all those layers.

Older Look

We couldn't help but include at least one photo with The Lord Scott Disick, who is pretty much the only one who can provide any comic relief when it comes to the Kardashian clan. This photo from 2013, which seems like an eternity ago when it comes to Kylie Jenner, is from the Day By Day Fashion Show Presented by Style Fashion Week at LA Live. Clearly, this is another shot during the Kylie transition phase. The lips are covered in lipstick but still appear to be pre-augmentation. The hair definitely wouldn't pass the 2017 Kylie look, and as for the coat she's wearing, if someone asked her to wear that today, that person would probably be shot on sight. She actually looks older back then than she does now. There appears to be some reverse aging going on here.

The Model

Whether you like her or not, or feel that she's attractive with her new look or not, Kylie is indeed a model. Even she can do that. I mean, how hard can it be, right? There is, in fact, a big difference between a model and a role-model, but many still feel that she's actually both.

Here, we have Kylie posing for her "Kylie's All Grown Up" shoot for Galore Magazine. Does she ever get tired of taking all these photos? Between the modeling gigs and all the daily selfies for her social media sites, we'd guesstimate that she spends at least over half her time behind a camera of some sort. It runs in the family, though. This is certainly not one of her worst shots, to say the least.

Sweet Sixteen

Here's Kylie at her Sweet 16 birthday party in Los Angeles. Obviously, her transformation was well underway, but there would be a lot more changes to come in the next two years -- which is the understatement of the year. It's still amazing how much she changed in such a short amount of time. I guess you can make anything happen when you're that rich.

It was a star-studded affair for the 16-year-old -- a massive event with tons of celebrity 'friends', actors, and rappers, from Jaden Smith to Drake, who performed at the event. Quite an entourage she has, and that's not even including her outlandish family. Seriously, what is the world coming to? Her over-aged boyfriend, Tyga, was there, too, in case you were wondering.
