SHE was the sibling who once admitted she used to be the ‘fat, chubby unhealthy sister.’
But Khloé Kardashian has now started to overtake her famous sisters in the glamour stakes.
In recent months, pictures of the TV star, 36, looking stunning – and often completely unrecognisable from the girl we once knew – have triggered more questions about how she’s pulled off her new look.
Here Fabulous Digital asks the experts how they think Khloé has transformed herself.
As the youngest of the three Kardashian sisters, at first Khloé – then just 23, played a supporting role to her sultry older sister Kim.
Looking at her pictures over the years, Windsor-based cosmetic surgeon Dr Fulvio Urso-Baiarda of eterno360 says Khloé is yet to get the hourglass figures she is known for now.
"She has naturally got hips but not a very defined waist and breasts of around a C-cup so she’s got more of a rectangular shape," Dr Urso-Baiarda said.
However as Khloé’s star starts to rise, it’s not just her figure that seems to change – so does her face including her nose, chin and lips.
Dr Urso-Baiarda says: "She starts off moderately square-jawed with a wide chin. In these shots, she also has a reasonably full nose."
As Keeping Up With The Kardashians becomes a global hit, Khloé is known for being the funny, charismatic sister.
But the fact that at 5ft 10, she has a very different body type to her petite sisters means that at first she felt set apart from her siblings.
Her family even joked that she had a different dad, rather than being the daughter of late lawyer Robert Kardashian, like Kim and Kourtney.
Later Khloé also told how, around this time, she was shamed by shop assistants when she went shopping with her sisters and she was told they didn't have her size.
Khloé’s bigger frame meant that, at first, she found it to be judged in comparison.
The star also admitted she tried yo-yo dieting and ate more to deal with stress.
She has said: "Being known as the fat sister definitely affected me. Instead of trying to really get out of that, I just kind of owned it, and I would probably, like, eat my feelings more."
As she started to emerge from Kim’s shadow, Khloé landed her own spin-off reality show with her eldest sister Kourtney called Khloé and Kourtney take Miami.
She also started dating Lakers star Lamar Odom and after a whirlwind three-month romance, the pair announced their engagement.
With a new series and a wedding to plan, Khloé started to work out more seriously – up from two days a week to more regular sessions.
She also became a spokesman for diet product QuickTrim which she claimed helped her burn calories faster.
Later consumers tried to sue the sisters for $5million dollars on the grounds it didn't speed up weight loss, as claimed.
However, pictures this year do show Khloé with a slightly slimmer lower face.
According to the rules of proportion, the distance of the hairline to the bridge of the nose should ideally be about one third of the face.
So, like her sister Kim, who admitted to having laser hair removal to lift her forehead around the same time, Khloé may also have had it raised a few millimetres, lengthening her face to make it look more open.
Possible cost: Laser hair removal – Eight sessions at £75 each
Although Khloé already had a shapely bottom, which she showed off in a Peta ad saying she’d rather she’d rather go naked than wear fur, there are no signs yet it has been cosmetically altered.
Instead she concentrates on changes to her hair, lightening it to give her face a softer look.
There is a sign of more muscle tone to her arms and legs, but she is still some way off having the taut body she worked so hard for now.
As the cupid bow to her upper lip now looked flattened, it also appears she may have started having lip filler around now.
Possible Cost; Lip fillers: £200 to £1,000 per treatment
As she tries to get pregnant with her husband Lamar, Khloé says she is maintaining her weight.
However she admits she’s tired of the criticism, commenting in one episode: "I'm so tired of pretending that I'm happy with my weight, just to be a good role model.
"Little digs aren't a big deal but when you pile all of that into two weeks, you get down on yourself."
She also opened up about how her mother Kris accused her of hurting the family brand by not being thin enough to promote the diet products her sisters endorsed.
However for now, Khloé still experiments with hair colour, softening her look by going a flattering shade of red.
As she continues to try and fall pregnant, Khloé keeps experimenting with her hair colour.
She switches between lighter and darker locks and asks her Instagram followers: "What do you guys think of my blonde look?!"
While Kim has always been famous for her iconic bottom, it’s only now that Khloé starts to show a pronounced family resemblance – though it’s possibly due to an acquaintance with her sister’s cosmetic surgeon.
Commenting on Khloé's bigger bum, Dr Fulvio Urso-Baiarda said: "I think she has Brazilian butt lift. It’s probably fat grafting.
"As the donor site is more likely the waist or tummy of the flanks, what will slim her waist too, creating more of an hour glass appearance."
However Dr Urso-Baiarda says this would have been a high risk strategy as the Brazilian butt lift has the highest mortality rate of any cosmetic procedure.
The controversial procedure has a death rate of 1-in-3000 and is currently suspended in this country.
To make it clear that some of her transformation was also down to hard work, Khloé also starts to showcase her daily workouts on Instagram and Snapchat.
As her marriage to Lamar begins to fall apart, due to rumours of infidelity, Khloé has said the gym became her hiding place.
She said: ‘I decided to channel my energy into working out.
"If I went out with my girlfriends I would be hounded by paparazzi and made to feel more humiliated. The gym was my only refuge.’
Possible cost: buttock fat transfer – £600, Liposuction: £3000
Newly-single and determined to break free from the label of ‘fat sister’, it’s now that Khloé really throws herself into getting "a revenge body".
During this time, Khloé lost 40lbs – thanks in part to her Hollywood fitness trainer Gunnar Peterson, who also trained Jennifer Lopez.
However, she would later claim: "My weight fluctuates all the time and I love that at any size I feel comfortable.
"When I was bigger and wore bigger clothes I looked even bigger. I love embracing my curves no matter what size I am."
With newly-blonde locks, Khloé gave fans an update on her fitness regime.
She said: "I try to work out like five days a week, it's a lot but I feel great when I do it."
She also says she has hired a nutritionist Dr Philip Goglia who drew up an individual profile based on the analysis of fats in her blood, and asked Khloé to cut out yeast, gluten, and dairy.
Khloé drives home the message that she wants to think strong and fit when she publishes her book Strong Looks Better Naked which she celebrated with a photoshoot to show off her toned abs.
She says fitness has also made her mentally stronger person helping her to deal with the stress of her on-going divorce proceedings, finding that her estranged husband Odom was found unconscious in The Love Ranch brothel.
As well as admitting she had lip filler this year, Dr Urso-Baiarda says Khloé’s face shape seems to be changing dramatically now.
He says: "Something interesting seems to have happened specifically between 2015 and 2016, where Khloé’s cheekbones become more defined and her mid-face less full.
"One possibility is that she had buccal fat pads – (two pouches of fat on her lower side of her face)- removed."
This could have involved a surgeon making small cuts to the inside of Khloé’s mouth and cheeks to remove them.
This can help create a more sculpted, slimmer look in the hollow part of the cheeks, giving Khloé a more delicate face shape.
Dr Fluvio Urso-Baiarda adds: "It also looks like work has been done on her nose around now – and the projection reduced a bit."
Possible Cost: Nose Job: £6,000 to £10,000, Lip fillers: £200 to £1,000 per treatment, Buccal Fat Removal: £1000-£5000.
This is the year Khloé finally admits to getting some cosmetic help, saying she had face fillers, probably to the cheek area.
This led fans to comment on her Instagram pictures: ‘OMG, Where is Khloé?’
In one episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kim is even seen grilling her little sister over the work she’s had done.
She said: "Khloé, your whole face changes when you laugh. It's like, I stare at you,"
As pressure mounts, Khloé admits to using injectables.
She said on the show: "I don't know if it's Botox or filler. I did one of them and my whole face went numb and I could not make [an expression]. I had to dissolve everything … I looked crazy and I still think the effects are in there."
Her lips are also continuing to change shape.
Dr Urso-Baiarda says: "She had naturally full lips to start with a reasonable soft cupid’s boy in 2007.
"However in the pictures this year her lips seem to have quite different proportions.
"Before, her upper lip was less full than her lower lip. Now there is a one to one ratio."
Apart from her face Dr Urso-Baiarda says: "She now has a smaller bottom than 2014.
"That would be in keeping with a butt lift about that time as the fat graft does partially reabsorb in the early months and even the year after surgery, for the better in my view.
"However, by now, she also appears to have bigger breasts.
"She was a full B or C – but now you are seeing a fullness in the upper part of the breast, and much more volume, which implies implants."
Possible Cost: Liposuction and breast implants – £10,000, Lip fillers x 2: £1000
As Khloé ’s body gets slimmer, it seems like her nose continues too.
However Khloé denies it’s surgery, hinting that when she lost weight she lost fat in her nose too on a US TV programme.
Khloé also credits her make-up artist with making it look finer by sculpting it.
She also puts her bigger lips down to make-up tricks – like tracing the lip liner outside the lips and using a lip plumper that makes them swell.
However it’s also clear that some of Khloé’s transformation is down to her own hard work.
This year her reputation for slogging it out at the gym lands her a TV show, Revenge Body, in which she invites dumped singletons to transform their bodies to remind their exes of what they are missing.
In a voiceover for the show, she explained how "growing up, people called me the fat, funny sister" before adding that, "a great body is the best revenge."
But stunned viewers then asked if the show should also be called “Revenge Face’ as her lips look so different.
Possible Cost: Second Nose job: £4000.
After giving birth to her daughter True by basketball player Tristan Thompson in April, Khloé said she was 210lbs.
Soon after the birth Khloé got back to the gym and lost 60lbs – taking her down to 150lbs.
It was a difficult time for the new mum who was also dealing with rumours of her partner's infidelity.
She channelled her energy in the gym and within six months was working out seven days a week with her latest trainer, Joe Bouraima.
Instead of eating three meals a day, Khloe now ate six or seven small meals of vegetables, chicken and nuts split up into specific amounts like 12 almonds or 4oz chicken breast.
Although she lost the weight she put on during her pregnancy, Khloé blamed her fuller lips on the fact she had been expecting a baby.
She said: "Some people get pregnancy lips and I was one of them So my lips look crazy and massive."
Possible Cost: Lip fillers x 2: £1000
From being the sister with the squarest jaw, by now Khloé seems to have acquired the most pointed and defined chin.
The possible reason is non-surgical dermal fillers, which have defined her face and given her a more chiselled look.
Dr Fulvio Urso-Baiarda says: "By 2019, she has a very crisp, defined jawline. I think that’s most likely been done non surgically.
"Around now, Allergan brought out a product that they were heavily promoting for the chin and jawline called Volux.
"It’s a filler which allows for very high projection so you can create very sculpted looks. So I suspect this is Volux or a similar product.
"You can narrow the chin in quite a similar way to the nose, and you can also reduce jowls and tighten the jawline by extending the chin forwards, increasing the cheekbones."
Whatever way Khloé has done it, she now has a face our expert says "has become a very well-defined inverted triangle."
Dr Julian De Silva has also told Fabulous he believes Khloé got this look by adding more to her chin rather than taking it away.
"Before, her chin looked out of balance in her face. After, her chin doesn’t look smaller but it looks more in balance with her face.
“If you have a larger chin there are two ways to address that.
"Either you shave down the chin in a surgical procedure or you add volume through fillers in the cheeks and the jawline to address the balance."
Possible Cost: Jaw fillers: £300 to £600
By now, Khloé has experimented with so many looks like that one fan commented on her Instagram that "her face has the range of Scarlett Johansson's acting career."
Another quipped: "It's like her fifth face!"
One more reason Khloé may look different is because her eyes are more open and there is a larger distance between her upper eyelid and her eyebrow.
This suggests that Botox has been used to open them up.
Plus fans suspected she was using a special app to give her skin a golden glow.
However Khloé has continued to dismiss the naysayers commenting on her looks, saying: ‘The bloggers who would call me fat. Now, they're like, 'Gorgeous Khloé!'
"I'm like, "No, I was gorgeous either way".'
Possible Cost: Botox to lift eyebrows: Botox – £300 x 2
