Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired 12 years ago. Here's how much they've changed.

This year marks the 12th anniversary of Keeping up with the Kardashians – a show which has brought us such iconic moments as Kim’s lost earring in Bora Bora and also Kim’s inappropriate selfie-taking when Khloe was going to jail.

'No one cares about your stupid earring.'

Since first airing in 2007, we've seen breakups, marriages, divorces, babies, new business ventures, babies, holidays, fights, drama, and more babies.

But more importantly, something we have all noticed is that every family member looks rather different 12 years on. Isn't it funny what time, styling and, a little bit lot of money can do...

So let's take a peek at the Kardashians through the ages - from 2007, until now.

Kris Jenner.

The woman behind it all.

Known in the media a little before the show aired due to the infamous OJ Simpson case, as well as her marriage to Olympian Bruce Jenner and Kim's infamous sex tape; Kris took a hold of the family narrative, turning a reality TV show into a business.

Coining the term 'mumager' - there really is no better way to describe her. Throughout the years, the 63-year-old has hosted her own talk-show, Kris, and helped with all ventures her children have taken on.

Kim Kardashian.

12 years, and a lottt has happened for Mrs Kim Kardashian West.

Two marriages, four kids, various brands and a multitude of looks, this woman has built a KKW empire. Through gaining the most well-known social media presence in the world, Kim has turned her image into a brand.

Currently working on her cosmetics and fragrance line, KKW Beauty, her shapewear line, Skims, and studying to be a lawyer, there is quite possibly nothing this woman can't do.

Kourtney Kardashian.

The oldest of the Kardashian kids, Kourtney's passion has always been in the health and wellness community.

The mother-of-three, having previously had a rollercoaster relationship with Scott 'The Lord' Disick, now focuses her energy into her kids and interests, launching her own wellness site earlier this year, called Poosh.

Khloé Kardashian.

Unapologetic Khloé may have had the biggest transformation of them all.

Despite dealing with cheating scandals and pregnancy struggles, the now mum of baby True works hard for her achievements and it pays off.

Previously hosting her own talk show in 2016, Kocktails with Khloé, she now works on her fitness transformation show, Revenge Body with Khloé, and clothing line for women of all shapes and sizes, Good American

Kendall Jenner.

When Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired, 11-year-old Kendall Jenner was literally a child.

Growing up and growing tall, the now 23-year-old travels the world modelling for the likes of Chanel, Victoria's Secret and Balmain.
