With her perennially fresh face, Kendall Jenner may not seem like she's changed that much over the years, but the supermodel has come a long way from her teeny-bopper tomboy days. In fact, in some throwback photos of Kendall, it's almost impossible to believe there was a time when she looked like that! Thanks to Keeping Up With The Kardashians, we've been able to watch her and her sister Kylie grow up into the beautiful women they are today -- but it's fun to talk a walk down memory lane as well. 

She's always been drop dead gorgeous, but she certainly wasn't always as glam as she is now. But that's what glow ups are for, right? And Kendall definitely had a major one. 

Everyone has those awkward years when you're just trying to figure out who you are and who you want to be, but Kendall had all of these moments caught on camera and in photographs thanks to her family's fame. We know Kendall probably has different feelings about this than us, but we are so grateful to have the evidence of the model becoming who she is now. It's always nice to take a look back at where you came from, right?

So, if you've forgotten what it was like when Kendall wasn't the sleek and sophisticated supermodel she is now, we've got you covered. Here, 16 old school photos of Kendall Jenner that prove that even world famous models have slightly awkward stages. 

  • Pre-Eyebrow Game

    Kendall Jenner has good eyebrows now. They look perfectly fine in this photo, but they're definitely not the ones we're used to seeing. That said, how cute does Kendall look here?!

  • Hiding Behind Kim

    Aside from the fact that this isn't really an outfit Kendall would wear these days, look at her body language. She seems so much more secure and confident these days. 

  • Old-School Everyone

    So cute! Throwbacks all around! Kendall looks absolutely stunning here, but there's no mistaking that this is before she became the supermodel she is today. 

  • Young Aunt

    Way back when Kendall first became an aunt. Aww. How adorable. And actually, this outfit kind of seems like something Kendall might wear now -- except for the fact that the T-shirt is pink.

  • Nice Gams!

    Legs for daaaaayyyys. It's easy to see why Kendall wound up being a supermodel. Holy hotness!

  • Long-Haired Kendall

    This photo is proof that all of the Kardashian-Jenner girls had hair extensions at one point or another. 

  • A Star Is Born

    One of Kendall's first modeling gigs was for the Hello Kitty collection at Forever 21. She's come a long way, baby!

  • Cutesy Cutesy

    Both girls look so pretty! But they're definitely more "cool girl" these days than the cutesy looks they've got going on here. 

  • Beach Babe

    Another one of Kendall's early modeling jobs was for White Sands Australia. Looks quite different from Kendall's current modeling gigs, but still, so gorgeous. 

  • Blonde Kendall

    Anyone remember when Kendall went blonde? ... Anyone?

    Who knew Kendall and Kylie did a little modeling together back in the day?

  • Fun in the Sun

    That awkward moment when you realize you've got tan lines, but only a strapless dress to wear. 

  • How's the Chicken?


    London Ent/Splash News

    Kendall, though abnormally attractive, really just looks like a typical high school student here, munching on some chicken fingers at a game. 

  • Kendall & Mason

    Doubt there was any competition between sisters back then ...

  • Team Edward, or Team Jacob?


    Oh god. Remember the Twilight era? Well, even baby Kendall and Kylie wanted part of the action. These two got together with friends to see New Moon in California. A classic 2009 past time. 

  • Riding in Style


    She has since upgraded to several different sports cars.
