Kim Kardashian proved EVERYONE went through that awkward teenage phase when she posted a pic of herself and childhood pal Nicole Richie on Instagram.

The reality TV star and her now-fashionable friend looked nothing like the woman who we're used to seeing on the front row and New York Fashion Week.

The snap shows a pre-blonde Kim and a fresh-faced Nicole flashing toothy grins while giving the thumbs up.

Kim and Nic have been friends since they grew up in the same high-brow Los Angeles community, but both found separate fame when Nicole appeared on The SImple Life alongside Paris Hilton and KK and her fam landed their own reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Rarely seen together, you'd be forgiven for not even realising these two were pals.
