Coco Austin Shares 1997 Magazine Cover And Is Unrecognisable!

Coco Austin shared a throwback photo of her first ever magazine cover and fans are saying the star looks unrecognisable. The 36 year old posted the photo below which is the cover of the 1997 issue of Swimwear Illustrated. See if you can pick which one is Coco.

Maybe the caption will help… “Wow, look at them roots. I was 18 here in ‘97. This is when I slowly started dyeing my hair blonde… I called it Peanut Butter back then… This was taken in Greece.”

No? Well it seems Coco’s fans couldn’t tell either. The wife of Ice-T had to write back explaining she was in fact the model on the left.

Which is when things got heated. Some of the comments that followed instituted that it wasn’t just her age that had changed since 1997. Many alluded to the fact that Coco’s transformation had more to do with surgery than just age.

Coco hit back with – “Wow ppl are never gonna quit. I’ve only had my boobs done, and I actually have them done here. This was 18 years ago … I’m just really young and a tomboy.”

Maybe. Who knows? And at the end of the day does it really even matter? I think not. Now let’s sit back and enjoy a little video Coco posted of her cute little one year old daughter Chanel…nawww!
