AS one of the most famous and photographed women on the planet, Kim Kardashian is used to turning heads wherever she goes.
And she's certainly no stranger to a dramatic image overhaul much to the delight of fans – with her latest look no exception.
The platinum-blonde Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, 41, racked up over 4million likes on an Instagram photo in the sea showing her flaunting her increasingly petite figure after her 21lb weight loss in a see-through 'Incredibles' T-shirt.
When it comes to her image the mum-of-four, who is currently in a long-distance relationship with comedian Pete Davidson, looks completely different to her early years as she constantly reinvents herself.
Here we take a look at her dramatic body transformation, from surgery rumours to dramatic weight loss.

Kim's current look is a far cry from her teen years, with throwback images revealing she adopted a typical 'grunge' look at one point.
In undated pics Kim shared to Instagram, she wears baggy jeans, a choker necklace and a white tee as she poses for the camera.
In other images, Kim is fresh-faced and natural before her rise to fame, clutching baby sister Kendall.
In 2006 Kim, then 26, was famous for being Paris Hilton's best pal and assistant.
She also looked drastically different, particularly her nose – although the star has always denied having surgery and has often attributed clever contouring for her dramatically differing looks.
Speaking to The Sun previously, cosmetic surgeon Doctor Mark Solomos said: “Kim displayed a relatively natural look back in 2006.
"The contours of her breasts look natural, albeit pert. It could mean therefore that she has had subtle breast augmentation.

“Her eyes and lips both appear natural, while her complexion looks clear and dewy.
“Her flawless skin could well be down to her youth at this stage rather than any interventions.”
Sex tapes & Playboy shoots
In 2007, a sex tape of Kim and ex Ray J leaked online, and it was this, combined with the start of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, that catapulted Kim to worldwide fame.
That year, Kim also posed nude for Playboy. In the interview she said: "Of course you're nervous and want more time to work out.
"But I'm proud to show people who I am. You always see the typical skinny models and I'm not that and I'm proud not to be that."
While Kim has always been proud of her curves, in 2010 her buttocks really started to gain recognition.
In fact, Kim’s figure was getting so much interest she even offered to have an X-ray on Keeping Up With The Kardashians to prove she didn’t have bum implants.
But experts have pointed out that if she’d had her own fat pumped back into her rump it wouldn't show on a scan.
“In 2012, something weird happens to Kim’s bottom,” Doctor Fulvio Urso-Baiarda previously told The Sun.
‘We are not only starting to see a width increase for the first time, but the buttock crease (the line between the buttock and thigh) is sloping downwards and inwards.
“I suspect this is because her bottom has been weighed down by fat grafts in a way that would not naturally happen.”
The star even 'broke the Internet' in 2014 with her cover shoot for Paper magazine, which quickly went viral.
As her bum grew, Kim's waist seemed to shrink. This was most apparent when she attended the Met Gala in 2019, wearing an iconic custom wet look Thierry Mugler dress.
The dress was so tight the star had to have 'corset breathing lessons' and couldn't go to the bathroom while wearing the gown.
In 2020 she claimed she had a 24 inch waist, and 39in hips.
Recently Kim has undergone a huge hair transformation, with her trademark dark brunette locks now platinum blonde, and has also been pictured looking increasingly slim.
She initially shed 16lbs ahead of the 2022 Met Gala so that she could squeeze into Marilyn Monroe's famous gold gown.
However, the beauty has continued to lose weight since, shedding an additional 5lb after cutting out junk food.
She said: "I'm not trying to lose any more weight but I have more energy than ever. I cut out so much sugar.

"A lot of junk food I was eating. I didn't even realise it. A lot of fried foods. And I completely changed my lifestyle."
Unafraid to try something new, whatever look she goes for, Kim always pulls it off.
