Kim Kardashian West has shocked fans after posting a throwback photo on Instagram in which she looks ‘unrecognisable’.
The 39-year-old reality TV sensation took to the social media site to pay tribute to her best friend Allison Statter on her birthday.
In the candid shot, Kim and Allison pose together in the black and white picture back in 1996 while in Paris with Allison’s family.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashian’s star donned a much more casual look than fans are used to seeing as she wore a simple white tank top and a much shorter hair style which she wore pulled back with a few strands hanging on her shoulder as she leaned on her friend.
However, fans were more interested in Kim’s former appearance rather than the heartfelt tribute with many suggesting that the reality star should have kept her natural beauty.
“You didn’t need all that surgery. You were so naturally beautiful” wrote one unenthusiastic follower.
“Wow you are a different person these days. You need to stop with the surgery,” another wrote.
While a third commented: “So beautiful. What have you done to yourself?”.
Alongside the cute snap, Kim wished her ‘loyal’ friend a happy birthday and thanked her for continuously sticking by her side through thick and thin.
