See how he's changed his look over the years
Perez Hilton has changed A LOT since he first came to fame in the 00s.
The blogger and television personality entered the limelight with a slightly chubby face, unkempt brunette locks and bristly stubble.
This look is perfectly illustrated by the first snap in our gallery, which shows Perez – real name Mario Armando Lavandeira, Jr – at a New York book launch on 26 June 2006.
As we document, Perez soon begins to experiment with different looks.
He becomes known for dying his hair various colours. Over the next few years, he steps out with hues including blond, silver, pink, blue, orange, red and platinum.
Aside from the shade of his mane, Perez also changes the style. He tries everything from a punky quiff to flicky ends, an edgy mohawk, neck-skimming lengths and a neat crop.
He also rocks various wigs and switches between being bearded and clean-shaven.
Perez’s impressive weight loss make a significant impact on his facial features. Previously looking a little bloated with a double chin, he starts to shed the pounds in 2008.
By 2010, his jawline is far more defined and he’s sporting very slimline cheeks by the time he enters the Celebrity Big Brother house in January 2015.
Perez isn’t afraid to alter his appearance with make-up.
He adds dark liner to his eyes on numerous occasions and also gives blue eyeshadow, pink lipstick and nude gloss a go.
Dressing up as Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga for Hollywood parties, he totally tranforms himself with slap including heavy blusher, bronzed foundation and a brown eyebrow pencil.
Despite clearly loving being theatrical, Perez does tone down his image a little as he enters his thirties and becomes a father to son Mario Armando Lavandeira III.
