Chelsea Manning released the first photo of herself since being released from prison, and the leaker looks a lot… well, different.

President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s sentence, allowing Manning to serve just seven years of a 35-year sentence for giving classified government materials to WikiLeaks.

Manning, who was formerly known as Bradley, announced the day after sentencing that the Army private had always struggled with gender identity and was going to undergo hormone therapy to look more like a woman.

Now, a day after being released, Manning has finally shown the world his new look, lipstick and all.

In the photo, Manning is wearing an incredibly low cut top.

Twitter users are already fawning over the “beautiful” picture.

Comments on an identical Instagram post were similar, reading, “STUNNING,” “I love your style!” and “YASS QUEEN.”
