Celebrities are good at shocking the public, especially when they transform their appearance so drastically that they become new people. That’s why the Bruce Jenner to Caitlyn Jenner transformation captivated the world, because the change was so big that Jenner not only went from being a man to being a woman, but she changed the discourse about what it means to reinvent yourself in America. With that in mind, here are some of the most amazing celeb transformations of the past few years, some involving gender change, and others body shape.

Jenner has said that he has felt as if he was a woman for more than 20 years, and that he never felt comfortable in his male body. You could tell that he had done something to his face when you saw him on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” but you weren’t sure what exactly was happening. Rumors had actually began in the 1980s that Jenner wanted to undergo a gender-change operation, but they died down as Jenner’s lawyers would nudge anyone reporting that news that a lawsuit was imminent if that information was ever printed. But Jenner finally got the courage to declare herself a woman after years of suppressing her real feelings, and it must have been liberating to finally live the life she wanted to for all those years.

The transformation is kind of remarkable. As a woman, Jenner has softened all the hard edges, enhanced her cheekbones and thickened her lips with collagen. Even Jenner’s legs seem to have somehow elongated and become more feminine, and Jenner also received implants to complete the transformation.
