Out of all the Real Housewives of New Jersey, it's safe to say that Caroline Manzo has had the most drastic transformation. She may not have gone under the knife recently, like many of her co-stars, but she went from an edgy and severe look  during Season 1 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey to a softer more feminine, which she rocks now... although, on the inside, she's still tough as nails!

Check out these two pictures of Caroline, then and now.

Back in the day, her spiky short hair was stylish but a little harsh, and gave her a mild case of "square face." Nowadays, Caroline's switched to longer hair, which she wears feathered back in wispy layers. The effect is a much more ethereal feel, which we thinks suits her new Zen attitude.
