Bristol Palin, daughter of former vice presidential candidate turned reality star Sarah Palin, recently stepped out and showed off her shocking physical transformation. 

Wearing a cherry-red fringe ensemble, the former "Dancing with the Stars" contestant was snapped walking the red carpet at the premiere party for season 11 of "DWTS" on Sept. 20, 2010.  During Bristol's stint on the dancing show, her weight was often the object of criticism.

Just yesterday, Bristol caused quite a stir when she
turned up at the Candie's Foundation 2011 benefit gala with a new look -- a dark' do heavily made up and a white
minidress that highlighted her slimmer physique.
