Let’s face it. We love celebrities. We love watching them on TV, following them on social media, and reading about their exploits. But perhaps most of all, we love to see them change and grow over time. Whether it’s heartwarming, healthy progress, or simply outrageous style decisions, we love to see it! Today, we’ve put together a shortlist of the most surprising celeb transformations of the past week. Check it out!
1. Khloé Kardashian
If there’s a family on Earth that has transformed before our very eyes, it’s the Kardashians. Every member of the family is notorious in their own way, and each has undergone dramatic transformations. And there’s no better example than Khloé.
Her physical transformation over the years is absolutely aspirational. Looking at old pictures of her, it’s like she’s aging in reverse! But Khloé is no Benjamin Button. Her before-and-after contrast isn’t just #goals; it’s the result of a lot of hard work and healthy habits. Well, that, and a fair share of professional assistance. Her latest transformation, though, isn’t nearly as radical, but it’s definitely surprising. Rocking a new shoulder-length medium bob, Khloé is channeling strong Tyra vibes.
2. Erica Mena
Erica Mena made a name for herself as a buxom bombshell in music videos starring the likes of Fat Joe, Akon, and Chris Brown. We didn’t get to know her explosive personality until she went on to participate in Love & Hip Hop: New York.
That’s when she really got to come into her own. Since then, Erica went on to marry rapper Safaree Samuels in October 2019, welcoming their first child in February 2020. After the birth, Mena got back on the horse, reaching her usual pinup figure in a matter of months. The secret to her success? According to her Instagram, “breastfeeding, eating clean and working my ass off every day”. A remarkably common-sense diet plan.
3. Will Smith
Rounding out our list is a very unexpected celebrity: Will Smith. With looks that just won’t quit, Smith has been in the public limelight for more than three decades. And at that time, he hasn’t aged a day. He seems impervious to time, trends, and everything else that brings about change.
So, how did Will Smith wind up in the list of most surprising celeb transformations? Thanks to Jason Derulo, of course. The “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” star had singer and songwriter Jason Derulo come over for some virtual reality golf (with a very real golf club). An unfortunate swing left Smith with a mouthful of chipped teeth. Don’t worry, though. We’re pretty sure the pair were kidding around with video effects. Probably.
