Married At First Sight star Alana Lister has once again thrilled her fans by sharing two more throwback snaps of her pre-reality TV life.

The schoolteacher from Queensland, who looks completely different these days, took to her Instagram Stories to post a pair of nostalgic photos from her younger years.

Back in the day

In one pic, Alana is all dressed up for her high school formal in a stunning backless black gown that showed off a glimpse of side-boob.

Her date for the evening, a man who Alana tagged as @ethanpanizza clearly can't keep his hands off the future TV bride.

"Your hand on my butt," Alana captioned the image, adding a face-palm emoji for good measure.

To let her floor-length dress shine, Alana styled her dark hair in a bun and kept her makeup and jewellery minimal.

Hair today, gone tomorrow

Alana took it back to her roots — literally — in the second throwback snap taken 'ages ago' which saw her sporting dark, chocolate brown locks.

"This was ages ago... last time I had my original hair colour I think," she wrote.

These days, Alana is rocking honey-blonde locks — that's if she's not having fun experimenting with rainbow wigs.

A key factor in her overall transformation was no doubt her breast augmentation which she underwent at some point before appearing on Channel Nine's 'social experiment'.

Alana admitted to having the cosmetic surgery in a frank and honest Instagram Live Q&A in late April after the show wrapped.

"My boobs are not natural," she responded to a curious fan. "That question gets asked a lot."

'Baby throwbacks'

Earlier in May, Alana proved just how much she's changed to become the glam bride who was paired with 'husband' Jason Engler on the most recent season of MAFS.

"Y'all wanted some baby throwbacks, me in high school and with my natural hair colour so here you go," she wrote on Instagram.

In one undated pic, a pre-cosmetic surgery Alana struck a pose in a bikini top while sporting long, brown tresses. In the second, she wears minimal makeup and is holding a soft toy dog.
