You probably won't recognise Terri Irwin in these glamour pics

When you think of Terri Irwin, mum to Bindi and Robert and wife of the late Steve Irwin, you think of this:

And maybe if she was a little more glammed-up, you think of this:

But you would most certainly not think of these photos New Idea dug up of Terri posing in a 2002 photo shoot wearing a ball gown and dramatic wig and a cleavage-baring sequined dress.

Yep, that's Terri.

According to the mag, friends said Terri stuck with her current khaki-wearing / fringe-haircut look for so long because she wanted to be taken seriously as a wildlife conservationist. 

No word on where these pics fit into that timeline. 

Recently, Terri told E! News she and Steve had plans to add to their family-of-four before his tragic death in 2006. 

"I said to Steve, 'Let's have a third'. And he said, 'You have a girl and you have a boy. What are you hoping for?'"

She continued, saying Steve had told her how excited he was when Bindi was born.


"He said, 'Do you think we could have a boy?' And then Robert was born, and they're perfect. They're easy kids; they're wonderful to me; they're such a help."


We're not crying you're crying.
