Over the years years she’s openly battled to overcome the issues surrounding her weight.

The purple-haired beauty, 28, wows in the stills taken by Nicky Johnston, as she admits that she will never become self-obsessed.
‘I learnt to respect and love myself’: As she graces the cover of Cosmopolitan Body Kelly Osbourne has admitted that she will never become self-obsessed
Speaking to the magazine Kelly said: ‘I’ll never be the kind of person who thinks, “I’m so hot.” I don’t want to be. But I learnt to respect and love myself – something I didn’t think I would ever be capable of.
‘At the Emmys last year I had my first moment when I really felt good. I put on my dress and when I looked at myself in the mirror I cried.’
She continued: ‘Never in my life did I think that Zac Posen would fly in a dress for me that he could have given to any nominee. It fitted me perfectly!’
With her hair pushed to one side in loose curls, Kelly places her hands behind her head as she clutches on to a pair of sunglasses.
Wearing a coating of deep cerise lipstick, the Fashion Police show host sports a blue and brown striped bikini top as she accessories with a lavender plastic personalised necklace.
Staring dead into the camera lens Kelly pierces her lips as she cuts a beach ready figure.

In the honest interview Kelly revealed that her despite losing almost five stone, her new size is not the reason for her happiness.
‘People think I lost weight and that’s what made me happier. That’s not true; I had to learn to love myself first.
‘Losing weight was just one benefit of putting the hard work in and sorting myself out on the inside first through therapy.’
Osbourne explaining that following therapy she finally learned to just be herself: ‘That was one of the scariest times of my life. I swear I’ve never felt more naked, because I had to actually be me and couldn’t mask it.’

‘Working out is not fun, I’m not going to lie and say it is. I sweat my arse off and I’m miserable for the hour I’m doing it but when I’m done, I feel amazing.
‘There’s no quick fix and it does take a long time. It drives you mad when you see someone eating chips when you can’t have any, but it’s so worth it.’
She added: ‘If you want to change your body you can’t just diet; if you do that, you lose weight, then get fat. You’ve got to commit to a whole life change and teach yourself a whole new lifestyle.
‘It isn’t fun, but it never will be. I don’t deny myself anything – I still eat chocolate and cake and always will. Everything in moderation.’
‘When I started exercising I couldn’t even do one sit-up! By the end of the first week I could do three, and that was a big deal.
‘Now I work out every day and I just don’t feel good if I miss it. It’s amazing how quickly your fitness builds, but you have to really want it,’ she said.

Moving off the topic of weight, Kelly took time to gush over her new found happiness with her boyfriend Matthew Mosshart.
In awe of her boyfriend – who is the brother of The Kills star Alison Mosshart – she said: ‘I have finally learnt to let somebody love and treat me the way I deserve to be and that’s a great feeling.
‘The thing is, if you think you don’t deserve to be treated well, you won’t be. A lot of girls don’t believe they deserve the best and their boyfriends walk all over them. I learnt the hard way.
‘But when I met Matthew everything changed and I realised I’d never been in love before.’
