Little Mix have changed a LOT since winning The X Factor in 2011… here's what they looked like at their first ever audition

Not only have Little Mix been able to launch their career following the popular TV talent show, they’ve also had a dramatic image overhaul.

Since leaving The X Factor, the girl group have honed their sense of style – and they all look fiercer than ever.

Little Mix were first put together on ITV’s boot camp, after Kelly Rowland had the bright idea to test the girls out as a group.

The ex-Destiny’s Child singer must’ve seen something special in the auditionees, as she told the other judges: "I like them together, they look fricking great together."

Throughout the live shows, the group divided fans with their wardrobe decisions.

Looking back on their time on the show, Little Mix’s Leigh-Anne explained just how much their style had changed over the years.

She told Fabulous magazine: "We've stepped it up completely. Oh my God, do you remember us on The X Factor? Urgh! What were we thinking?!

“We're getting older, we're turning into young, beautiful ladies."

Jesy also added: "Definitely. When I look back at us on The X Factor, we're like little girls, and now I feel like a woman."

But just how much have the girls changed? These then and now photos may surprise you…

Jesy Nelson

During her time on The X Factor, Londoner Jesy was forced to put up with cruel taunts from internet trolls.

Not only is her transformation abs-olutely amazing, the cheeky girl band member isn’t afraid to flaunt her enviable figure in a variety of revealing outfits.

In a recent interview with Fabulous magazine, she said: “As we’ve got older, we genuinely don’t give a s*** any more.

“(The constant scrutiny) is hard to take when you’re young, but now we’re more confident.

“We’re happy to be how we are and don’t care if we put on a couple of pounds. I feel like curves are really in at the moment – I love that they’re celebrated.”

The 27-year-old also raked in the compliments when she recently showed off her recent hair cut.

Jade Thirlwall

Jade has definitely had the least dramatic makeover since her X Factor days.

The biggest difference has definitely been the girl band member’s growth in confidence.

The stunning 25-year-old revealed that the release of Little Mix’s latest album Glory Days has been a huge turning point for the group.

She said: “I really feel like we’re women now. Before this album, I still felt a bit like a little girl. Now we’re women and we want to show off our bodies and our assets!”

Sun Columnist Lorraine Kelly recently praised Jade for opening up about her battle with anorexia.

She said “feisty females who should not be under-rated and they choose to wear those revealing outfits because they feel happy and confident in their bodies.”

Leigh-Anne Pinnock

Little Mixer Leigh-Anne, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, was working in Pizza Hut before her X Factor journey.

She dressed for her audition in a basic tee and khaki skirt, before impressing the judges with her rendition of a Rihanna track.

Her passion for fashion has come in leaps and bounds since she joined Little Mix.

Leigh-Anne now has her own style blog, called Leigh Loves, on Tumblr.

She has also hit-back at criticisms of the band's outfits, arguing that they have the right to be body confident.

Perrie Edwards

South Shields lass Perrie sang You Oughta Know by Alanis Morissette in her X Factor audition.

The blonde bombshell looked boho-chic when she first rocked the stage, and she looked angelic dressed all in white.

Over the years, the 25-year-old has experimented with a number of bold fashion trends.

At Halloween, she rocked a very sexy mermaid in a shell bra top, and she also recently uploaded a saucy snap of herself in a strapless corset.

She has also sent fans into a frenzy over Perrie’s sultry make-up free Instagram selfie of her new hair-cut.
