Amber Rose Is Unrecognizable In This #TBT School Photo

You've come a long way, baby. Long before she crossed paths with Kanye, Wiz, or the Sunglass Hut, Amber Rose was simply a schoolgirl with a love of wavy bangs and Team USA. Now we have visual proof. Yesterday Rose took part in #ThrowbackThursday by sharing an old school photo on Instagram. Here she is 12-years-old, sans shaved head and shades. We barely recognize her.

Love the bob, babe. As Rose notes, she was already 5'9 at age 12, and that Olympics T-shirt suggests a love of sports. It's a little awkward, but what school photo from that era wasn't? Here's hoping there are more photos of Baby Amber in our future.
