Smith added some drama to the look by rocking a black beret over her short blond hairstyle. The former beauty queen topped off her graceful appearance with a shy smile, giving her a youthful aura. Captioning the post, she wrote:
"To get somewhere new, you must first decide that you are tired of being where you are!!!! #transformationtuesday."
Sure enough, the Treasure You founder has experienced some remarkable transformations in her life which shaped her into the woman she is today.
First was her marriage to the "Martin" star in 1995, a year after emerging first runner-up in the Miss USA beauty pageant. Their marriage ended in 1997, following the birth of their daughter, Jasmine Page.
While serving as one of the speakers at the Shop Pink event aimed towards creating breast cancer awareness, the icon recounted her ordeal.
Eventually, she crossed paths with football star Emmitt Smith and walked down the aisle a second time. In addition to sharing three children with her second husband, she became a step-mom to his daughter, Hope Wilson, from a previous relationship.
Smith once opened up about going through a depression phase while married to the former football player. It happened during his time on "Dancing with the Stars," where he partnered with Cheryl Burke.
Her thoughts went into overdrive, picturing her husband having a steamy affair with his dance partner. The thoughts left her at her wit's end until the season eventually ended.
That single experience became her wake-up call to stop worrying so much about her husband's fidelity. The moment of transformation ultimately led to the birth of her women-focused organization, Treasure You.
Although Smith and Emmitt divorced eventually, Treasure You has positively transformed the lives of several women. Aside from her relationships and marriages, Smith has experienced transformation in other aspects of her life.
In 2016, the mother-of-four opened up about undergoing a heartbreaking transformation as a teenager when her mom passed away from breast cancer.
While serving as one of the speakers at the Shop Pink event aimed towards creating breast cancer awareness, the icon recounted her ordeal. She also explained how the loss affected the entire family.
Losing her mom ultimately made Smith a strong advocate in the fight against breast cancer while standing up for other causes that affect women.
