Kate Gosselin's evolving style has been attention-grabbing -- and not always in the way she might have hoped for.

Years after we first met her, Kate's still a reality TV staple, most recently appearing on "Celebrity Apprentice." Though she's pretty much always on TV one way or the other, E! News reports that this time around, some viewers didn't recognize her.

After eight years in the spotlight, Kate appears more youthful than ever. Could the now 39-year-old be aging in reverse? She gave E! the lowdown at the"Celebrity Apprentice" finale.

"I think when the world met me, I was three days post having sextuplets, so the only place you can get from that point is younger," she said candidly. "So it was really just eye-trickery, I think. You guys saw me at my worst first, and then i just kind of reversed in front of your eyes. It was nothing amazing, it was just, when you met me, who was that person?"

In '07, when "Jon and Kate Plus 8" hit the airwaves, the very (very, very) busy mom of six newborns was the epitome of "basic."

By the time the show ended in '09, she had a signature style: A bizarre reverse mullet with heavy highlights and asymmetrical bangs. (She probably never expected it to inspire a ton of Halloween costumes!)

Kate went glam for her stint on "Dancing With the Stars" back in 2010, rocking a glowing tan and a lighter mid-length bob.

Fast forward to today, and the fresh-faced reality star has a chic and sleek look.
