We Barely Recognized Elizabeth Lyn Vargas as a Brunette in Smoldering '90s Photos

These throwback photos of The Real Housewives of Orange County newbie with brown hair will have you doing a double take. 

Elizabeth Lyn Vargas Throwback

Elizabeth Lyn Vargas is full of surprises. The clothing budget-busting, shoe-obsessed, vodka-maker has made quite the impression on The Real Housewives of Orange County viewers — and not just because of her enviable closet. Elizabeth fits right into the OC with her lavish lifestyle and sunny blonde hair, but she wasn't always a golden-haired businesswoman.

The RHOC newcomer shared a series of stunning throwback photos on her Instagram on November 24 that had us doing a double take for more than one reason. 

"Throwing it WAY back with these ones!" she mused in her caption alongside a slew of pics of Elizabeth as a — wait for it — brunette. It's safe to say she had mastered the art of the effortless hair flip long before the style swept through Bravo. In one shot, Elizabeth smolders in a sexy, Working Girl-approved power suit with a lined lip and statement baubles. In another, she is having fun in the sun in a high-voltage, neon bikini that would very much be on trend right now. 

There's even a moody, glam photo in shades of black and white that flaunts her skills in front of the camera. What other surprises does she have in store for us?
