Kim Kardashian has been making quite a statement these days. The reality TV star is trying to break the internet with a (very) NSFW photo for Paper Magazine.

Before we kept up with her and the rest of the Kardashian Klan, Kim went from being a cute kiddo to Paris Hilton's (LOL! Remember her) BFF.  In true #tbt style, here are 57 photos of Kim Kardashian that look nothing like her now.

BFF'S with Paris

Remember when Kim was Paris Hilton’s trusty sidekick? AND wore a white collared wrap dress? You had no idea where you’d end up on that Totem Pole, Kimmy K. 

This Red Carpet Pose

Proving that even Kardashians can get too matchy-matchy. 

A 5 Star Outfit

Let’s just leave with that belt.

Not the Same

I mean… it’s kind of the Kim we know and (maybe) love. A bit different, though. 

Matching with Paris

Oh man. The costume. The sunglasses. PARIS HILTON. 

But really: what are they wearing? Is it for Oktoberfest? Some sort of sexy medieval outfit? The world may never know.

A... Different 'Do

I don’t understand her hair. Is it supposed to stick up like that? What’s with the center part? At least she’s with a Cheetah Girl.

2007 Fashionista

Kim, you mad?

A TRL Appearance

Oh man, a classic 2000s midriff vest. And, a giant monogrammed necklace — just in case you forgot what her first and last name start with.

Owning the Red Carpet

Look at that pose. It’s fierce. She just KNOWS she’s going to make it big.


Is it just me or is her face a totally different shape in this 2007 pic? We’ll blame it on the bangs.

Dynamic Duo

At least Kourtney semi-resembles her current self…


Hmm…I’m not sure if blonde works for her. It’s (luckily) just a wig, but she DID recently bleach her brows, so there’s that.

This Jolly Bunch

A Christmas photo from way back in the day. Maybe they’re practicing for their annual holiday card.

Those Monogrammed Sweater Days

The girls matched head-to-toe even way back in the day. I wonder if Mamma Kris made those sweatshirts.

In Satin and a Bow

Proving there’s a foodie in all of us.

Who Could That Be?

What’s the best part of all of Hollywood’s elite going to the same school? The fact that they get to pose for photos together, of course! Nice braces, Nicole.

Beach Day Sisters

The gang posed for a beach day photo for this throwback photo. Yeah, Kim’s pose hasn’t changed much. But those bangles? LOL.

Myspace Photo

Proving even Kardashians were into the whole peace sign, Myspace photo thing.

Mother/Daughter Cheesin'

Oh, Kimmy K and Mamma Kris. The bow’s adorable. And she may or may not look a tiny bit like North.

Bottoms Up

Showing us all that she’s always known how to own a cocktail party.

Pattycake, Pattycake

Let’s hope she saved this hat for North.

How to Get to Sesame Street

They’re wearing matching outfits and are completely fascinated with Big Bird! See… Kardashians are normal, too. Kind of….

Dammit, Kourtney

Back in the day when Khloe cut Kim’s bangs and Kourtney ruined photos.

The Short Bangs

I’m not sure how I’m feeling this look, Kim. The short bangs aren’t really your thing, but you do you.

White Out

This isn’t the way we know Kim to coordinate outfits these days, but then again this photo is from 2006.

Diva 'Do

Back. off. the. bronzer!!!

Belt It Out

This was apparently Kimmy’s signature ‘do way back in ‘06.

Model Material

Kim K. or J. Lo? TBD.

Sister, Sister

How cute is Kendall, though!!


The good news is that Kim has given up on leopard headbands these days.

Which One Is She?

No, for real, that’s Kim on the right back in Sept. 2006.

A Look We Love

We can totally get down with this roaring ’20s Kim K. look.

One Happy Family

And here’s the whole crew because we bet you didn’t know Kourtney was the real spray tan addict back in the day.

Half and Half

This must have been a transition phase between blond and brunette.

Lovely Ladies

The Kardashian ladies have always cleaned up well.

Hoop Dreams

It’s Kimmy from the block, complete with gold hoop earrings.

Bowling Babe

Kim never before struck me as the athletic type.

Lovely in Leopard

There’s no way even Kim could recognize herself in this dress.

Family Love

And here’s all the siblings back in 2008.

Eyebrow Queens

Not sure why bleached brows were a thing, but at least Kim was in solid company for this look.

Striking in Stripes

That time that knits were Kim’s thing.

Blushing Beauty

This was quite the *colorful* look for Kim.

Freeze Frame

Wax figure or real-life Kim? It’s the latter.

Purple Princess

Guys, she used to wear things that aren’t just black and white.

Kim, the Model

Kim unveiled a new perfume, and a new look with this ad.

I SWEAR this is Kim.

No Skin, Just Bones

Okay, yeah, we’re cheating a little with this one.

Wet and Wild

Sorry Kim, but Queen Bey does the wet hair look a little better than you.

Up Close and Personal

Kim’s lashes are looking little fuller than usual.

Chilling With Paris

The friends who ignore the cameras together… don’t stay together apparently.

Strike A Pose

Can you imagine a time when Kim K. wasn’t the most famous person in this picture? I can’t.

Can't See Past My Shades

These sunglasses transform her whole face.

Side Part Of Queens

Most people still hadn’t heard of Kim K. in 2006, but it wouldn’t be long now…

Girls' Night

I still have trouble imagining the times when Kim Kardashian was most famous for being Paris Hilton’s friend, so let’s look at it again.

Some Things Never Change

Now this looks like a klassic Kim. K red carpet outfit.

Say Whaaat?

This was also my face when I found out that Kim K. had been on TRL more than once.


Yeah, I don’t even know.

Current Kim

 And in case you aren’t convinced, here’s Kim in 2016. See the difference?
