There's no doubt about it: The Kardashians are some of the most beautiful women in the world. With their picture-perfect faces and their enviable figures, it's hard to deny that these ladies know how to turn heads. But it's also hard to deny just how natural their beauty is, as well. The Kardashians are no strangers to scrutiny when it comes to their looks, as many fans are quick to assume their chiseled faces are due to the work of plastic surgery. And while each of the Kardashians should feel empowered to make her own choices regarding surgery, one sister in particular has been accused of taking things a bit too far.

Khloé Kardashian is known as the funny, likable sister that fans can relate to, but lately -- with her ever-changing appearance -- it's almost hard to remember the woman she used to be when she first became a household name. In recent years, the mother of one went from preaching to women how they should embrace their looks and their bodies to looking unrecognizable herself. Now let's be clear here: Khloé is absolutely, drop-dead gorgeous with or without the help of makeup, Facetune, or even a doctor. 

But fans have expressed concerned for the reality star as she appears to be changing so drastically, it's hard to, well, keep up

"I think plastic surgery should be viewed almost like makeup, because we're all putting on a mask basically every day anyway," she told Cosmopolitan in 2016. The star went on to compare surgery to dyeing hair. "I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I think people should get plastic surgery or fillers or lasers or whatever if they want it," she said, adding that it should be each person's individual decision.

Here's a look back at some of the times Khloé looked unrecognizable to fans.

  • Something Different?


    The reality star shared this photo in September 2019, and fans were quick to point out just how different she appeared. 

    "Is it just me or did [Khloé do] something to her face?????" one fan asked on Twitter. "This is not a hate tweet, I love Koko she’s the realest but there’s really something [different] about this selfie of hers." 

    Something different, indeed. After the backlash on this photo, Khloé disabled the comments.

  • Who's That?


    While there's no doubt the woman in this photo is beautiful, it's also very different from the face we know and love. Whether it's the expression on her face or the fact that the photo appears to be a bit Facetuned, something certainly has changed with Khloé. Regardless of which face Khloé's rocking, she's always a stunner!

  • Pucker Up


    This photo in particular received a lot of scrutiny from fans — particularly due to Khloé's filled-out face and oversized lips. "A lot of money in that face," one commenter wrote, implying that the star has gone under the knife. "Who is that?? They change faces so damn much," another added.

  • A Brand New Face


    The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star turned off the comments for this post as well, as fans were quick to point out her changing appearance. But hey, she still looks beautiful regardless.

  • Kim's Twin

    One facial feature that has changed drastically over the years is Khloé's nose. While it's undeniable that her nose does appear smaller than it used to, Khloé remains adamant that it's just contour -- for now, at least. Still, the smaller nose has her resembling sister Kim. "You look great. If Kim is the look you're going for," one fan pointed out.

  • 'Old Face'


    Khloé shared this post in honor of Scott Disick's birthday in May 2019, but all anyone could focus on was the 35-year-old's new look. "Remember your old face?" one commenter quipped. Khloé simply ignored the hate and left the comments public. 

  • Interesting Angle

    Perhaps this is just taken at an unusual angle, but this photo looks nothing like Kim and Kourtney's younger sister. Fans pointed out Khloé's larger-than-ever pout and how it appears unnatural in the photo. "Cant even shut her mouth the right way. Go get it fixed," one comment read. 

  • Channel Bey

    There's no denying the reality star looks identical to the "Single Ladies" singer in this photo -- and we're sure Khloé appreciated the comparisons! While she doesn't look like her normal self, she still looks fabulous. "I love this look... the hair girl," one fan commented.

  • Plastic Surgery Accusations

    Khloé disabled comments on this selfie as well, and it's not hard to see why. However, that hasn't stopped fans from voicing their opinions about her changing looks on other forms of social media. "So disappointed," one fan wrote on Twitter. "You keep talking about being open and honest with fans but [denying] having plastic surgery to the point of being unrecognizable. Be honest about that to your fans!!!"
  • Maybe It's ... Photoshop?

    A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

    This photo received an endless amount of scrutiny for the apparent Photoshop. Fans pointed out how the stairs appear to be morphed and how Khloé's body appears to be altered. "Girl your thighs don't match, and I'm not trying to be shady," one comment read. 

  • Bleach Blond


    Seriously, who *is* that? Khloé appeared unrecognizable while showing off her bleach blond hair on Instagram. She admitted in the caption that she chopped eight inches off of her locks. 

  • 'Stop Changing'


    What was supposed to be just a simple selfie with her sister Kourtney turned into so much more. Fans couldn't help but call out the star for her changing looks. "Stop changing yourself," one fan wrote, adding that she's no longer recognizable. "Give us back that beautiful uniqueness."

  • Mermaid Problems


    Koko captioned this one, "Make your story so beautiful, mermaids have trouble believing it's true." However, that's not the only thing mermaids will have trouble believing. Between Khloé's pink hair and distant expression, fans had trouble believing this was her! 

  • Beautifully Different


    OK, so there's an obvious filter used on this one, but Khloé still looks like a beauty queen. She totally nails that blunt bob haircut like a pro, though. But with so much going on in one photo, it's hard to see the real Khloé in there. 

  • Where's Khloé?


    This might be one of the most unrecognizable selfies of them all. Though Khloé appears sun-kissed in a yellow tank top and beachy blond waves, her face looks virtually nothing like it has in previous years. Still, she clearly is confident in how she looks and she should be.

    She's just as beautiful as ever.

  • Posing With Kenny


    Though the reality star called out her "big head" in this photo with Kendall, fans shared words of encouragement. "So beautiful and I think prettiest inside and out," one sweet comment read. However standing next to Kendall, who hasn't changed nearly as much as Koko over the years, is a bit jarring to see.
