Coco Austin, the wife and baby mother of Ice-T, is one of the OGs in the modeling game. She has been at it for years and even now after giving birth to her first child, she is still known for being one of the baddest in the game.

She took to her Instagram page to give us the ULTIMATE throwback flick from the very, very beginning of her modeling career. In fact, this magazine cover is actually one of her first published shoots. Her face looks entirely different!

She captioned the photo:

#TB My first mag cover! 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

See the #TakeItBackTuesday photo in the gallery of Coco as a kid!
