It's been a year since Married At First Sight star Aleks Markovic made her reality TV debut and since then, the real estate agent appears to have undergone somewhat of a transformation.

Today, the former bride is barely recognisable compared with her pre-fame self thanks to a post-MAFS makeover which included a dramatic hair cut and a reported nine kilo weight loss.

Pretty in pink

Taking to Instagram on Sunday, the 27-year-old flaunted her incredible 'new look' in a figure-hugging bright pink dress that left her followers stunned.

"Love your new look," wrote a fan in the comments, while another added, "Pretty in pink."

But it was Aleks's fresh 'do that attracted the most attention, with hoards of followers complimenting her latest chop.

"I love this shorter hairstyle on you," one gushed of Aleks's wavy style.

Post-TV makeover

In late January, Aleks revealed she'd snipped her locks into a chic long bob or 'lob' while also lightening her once-raven strands to a warm brown.

That's not the only change she's made, however. Aleks has been candid about the cosmetic work she has had done in the past and recently thanked a Sydney injectables clinic for keeping her 'looking fresh'.

"So grateful for nurse Brenda and the girls at @elc_mtdruitt for keeping me looking fresh throughout life that can be so stressful at times," she wrote on Instagram.

Aleks also gave a shoutout to another skincare clinic for her 'body contouring' when she shared a sizzling bikini snap.

"Thanks to my girls at @uniqueclinic_ for my body contouring over the last couple months," she captioned the pic.

And according to Daily Mail, Aleks not only relocated from her hometown of Perth to Sydney after her MAFS stint, but she's also lost nine kgs since her on-screen wedding to fellow real estate agent Ivan Sarakula.
