What a difference six years can make!

Nicole Richie was spotted showing off her amazing bikini bod in Miami on Wednesday, and it reminded of us of those infamous shots of the reality star from 2006 when she was scary skinny. When Nicole first came on the scene, her weight fluctuated from overly-curvy to skeletal in no time, which had millions talking.

However, cutting to present day, the 30-year-old mother of two has curves in all the right places!

What do you think of Nicole’s drastic(ally good!) bikini body transformation? Sound off in the comments!

Nicole is one of many starlets that has worked out with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson. Back in April 2011, she admitted her workout struggles on her blog, writing: “I tend to get bored easily and my body type just doesn’t respond as well to lifting weights or most workout regimens.”

She added:

“As I get older, I realize the importance of being fit and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It’s not about being thin, but about being healthy. It’s also important for me to train my muscles and condition my body now, so that all I have to worry about is maintenance rather than playing catch up later on in life.”

Looks like this way of thinking is working for her! Check out the video of her and trainer Tracy below:
