Bruce Jenner might be a successful Olympian but these days everyone is talking about her face after she confirmed she now prefers to go by the name of Caitlyn Jenner.

The reality star, who is undergoing gender reassignment, has drastically changed her look over the years. She’s used surgery as well as different hairstyles and clothing to experiment with her image.

Our gallery shows how the American star, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, has altered her appearance since the early days of her career.

In 1976 Bruce shoots to fame when he wins a gold medal in the decathlon at the Montreal Olympics and sets a new world record in the process.

His handsome face helps him to become a national hero and pin-up but his look soon starts to change.

After his sporting success Bruce pursues an acting career. He has a nose job and a partial face-lift in 1984.

Bruce later admits that he had the surgery as he was ‘going through a bad time’ following his second divorce.

He marries Kris Jenner in 1991 and heads into the world of celebrity. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s he tries out various youthful hairdos.

When the family’s reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashian first airs in 2007, Bruce continues to experiment with his image.

He has further surgery in 2009 to correct the previous work done on his face but decides to keep it a secret to begin with.

The TV star admits that criticism he received after the procedures he had done in the 1980s was unpleasant.

‘If you Google my name, the worst plastic surgeries of all time, or whatever it is… They’ve compared me to Michael Jackson,’ he says.

It doesn’t put Bruce off having further alterations though. He sports long locks in 2013 and the following year has an operation to flatten his Adam’s apple.

On 1 June 2015 Bruce announces her new name in a photoshoot for Vanity Fair magazine. She says she would now like to go by the name of ‘Caitlyn’ and sets up a new Twitter account with her new name. The hashtag Call Me Caitlyn starts trending around the world and there is a global outpouring of support for her brave decision to come out as a woman.
