"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood is no longer a prisoner to fashion... especially prison fashions ... and TMZ has learned she's embracing her freedom by creating a whole new glam look for herself.
After serving 17 months behind bars ... Portwood has freed herself from her harsh, mugshot makeup ... and is now showing off a post-prison makeover that gives her a softer, more sophisticated look.
Sources close to Amber tell us ... she's treated herself to a whole new set of clothes ... and a stylish new haircut.
But the biggest change ... they say ... she no longer uses homemade, prison-style hairspray (which is often made from Jolly Rancher candies because it's sticky and provides excellent hold).
So, the good news -- she looks great.
The bad news -- her hair no longer tastes like grape.
Amber Portwood and Gary
We Are Never Ever
Getting Back Together
11/8/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Amber Portwood may be hanging out at a Panera Bread with her ex ... but that doesn't mean they're bangin' again ... this according to Amber and her baby daddy.
Amber and Gary Shirley made it clear outside the tasty food chain in Indiana today ... telling a photog they have no plans to get back together following her exit from prison this week.
As you may recall -- Gary and Amber had an extremely volatile relationship ... Back in '10 Amber was arrested for attacking Gary while MTV cameras were filming for "Teen Mom."
It was a whole thing.
For now, it seems the two are simply trying to get along for the sake of their kid ... but in case that doesn't work out -- hopefully Gary's learned to duck.

Ex "Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood is savoring every moment after 17 months behind bars -- reuniting with her 4-year-old daughter on Monday -- and TMZ has the photos.
As we reported, Amber was originally sentenced to 5 years in an Indiana prison for violating probation in her drug possession case, but she was released early for good behavior and time served.
Sources tell TMZ, as soon as Amber got out she made a detour to a burger joint called Frisch's Big Boy -- and then beelined to see Leah ... who's been living with her dad while Amber was locked up.
Amber's baby daddy, Gary Shirley, currently has full custody ... but we're told she's planning to seek shared custody ASAP.
FYI, Amber now insists she's 100% sober.
'Teen Mom' Amber Portwood
RELEASED FROM PRISON
I'm Pretty Hungry
11/4/2013 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Teen Mom" star Amber Portwood was just released from an Indiana prison ... almost a year-and-a-half after she begged a judge to put her behind bars ... and now she's ready to eat.
Amber was initially sentenced to 5 years in the big house for violating probation in her drug possession case.
The judge had given Amber the choice of going to a drug rehab program instead of prison -- but Amber decided she would rather serve time than do the program.
Now, we've learned the 24-year-old MTV star -- who began her sentence in June 2012 -- was released Monday morning (only 17 months into her sentence).
We're told Portwood was granted early release due to good behavior, time served and the fact that she completed two unspecified prison courses while serving her time.
She walked out of the prison today wearing a grey sweatsuit ... and a smile ... and says the first thing she wants to do as a free woman is "go get something good to eat."

Seems James Deen may have a brand new eskimo brother ... a guy named Brian Dawe ... 'cause it appears B.D. is now dating "Backdoor Teen Mom" Farrah Abraham.
Dawe and Farrah were pictured on a romantic-ish stroll in Florida a few days ago -- with Farrah's child nowhere in sight.
Dawe has a website -- and says he's a DJ, who says he's "rocked the stage" with stars like Rihanna, Ke$ha, Avicii, Steve Aoki, Alesso, Travie McCoy, Lil Jon, Dev, Busta Rhymes, Trick Daddy, DJ Khaled and 2 Live Crew.
Good luck Dawe -- you've got some big ... really big ... shoes to fill.

Back to Jail
With a Smile
8/12/2013 1:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Teen Mom" star Jenelle Evans can't manage to stay out of jail ... even after copping a plea deal to stay out of jail.
Jenelle was in court Monday for uber-serious drug charges ... including heroin and illegal Percocet possession. A drug paraphernalia charge was added for good measure, because cops say they found wrapping papers and a pipe.
Jenelle copped a deal with prosecutors and pled guilty to the paraphernalia charge. In exchange the other charges were dropped. She was slapped with 18 months unsupervised probation ... but no jail time.
That is, until the judge had her randomly drug tested Monday morning.
Jenelle's attorney tells TMZ ... the MTV star tested positive for marijuana and the judge sent her to the slammer for 48 hours.
Here's the good news ... It takes more than a few days in the pokey to wipe that stupid smirk off her face ... just check out her latest mug (above).

'Wait, Who's Trayvon Martin?'
7/18/2013 7:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Farrah Abraham has NO IDEA who Trayvon Martin is -- but she thinks Trayvon is a woman she may have met ... because Farrah Abraham is an idiot.
"Backdoor Teen Mom" made the unbelievably stupid comments on the "Matty P's Radio Happy Hour" show ... when the host asked how she felt about the Trayvon situation.
"I feel like I've met her or something," Farrah blurted out of her stupid mouth ... adding, "It sounds so familiar ... I don't know what she is so I can't picture the person with the name right now."
Farrah Abraham ladies and gentlemen ... she's a moron.
REJECTED By Playboy
7/15/2013 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
INTERGALACTIC EXCLUSIVE: TMZ has learned, "Teen Mom" porn star Farrah Abraham will be living out every young girl's fantasy to model nude for Playboy magazine!!! Just kidding, Playboy rejected her sorry ass.
Sources tell us, the star of "Backdoor Teen Mom" reached out to the men's magazine following her sex tape release about appearing fully nude in an upcoming issue ... one of her lifelong dreams.
But the mag said no way, ho-se.
That didn't stop Farrah from trying one more time though -- we're told she reached out again last month ... and the magazine shot back with a SECOND NO, saying they just didn't have enough room for her.
Makes sense ... her new boobs are pretty damn big.

Farrah Abraham might have two D's on her chest, but she got all A's in her drunk classes -- the "Teen Mom" passed her alcohol ed classes with flying colors.
As TMZ previously reported ... the anusly-gifted porn star copped a plea deal with prosecutors earlier this month -- pleading guilty to DUI. She got 6 months probation and was ordered to complete an alcohol education course.
The "Backdoor Teen Mom" took her punishment like a man. We're told she was on her "best behavior" in booze school.
Farrah took the classes in Texas (where she lives), rather than Nebraska (where she was arrested) and even got a diploma! Well, really it's just a certificate of completion.

It's the boobie battle you've all been waiting for -- 22-year-old "Teen Mom" porn star Farrah Abraham (with her brand new D cups) and the legendary Tanning Mom (with her genuine leather speed bags).
It's actually a hilarious coincidence ... Farrah and 45-year-old Patricia Krentcil both posed for topless photo shoots on the beaches of Malibu Thursday.
Malibu beaches are a hot spot for celeb photo shoots, so it's not that surprising they showed up around the same place -- but it's incredible they BOTH decided to drop their tops.

Charlie Sheen is FURIOUS at Farrah Abraham for allegedly leaking their private text message conversation -- and TMZ has learned, he's already sent her the most epic rejection letter of all time ... calling her "a desperate guzzler of stagnant douche agua."
And that's just the beginning. Seriously. Charlie does NOT hold back. Here's the full transcript:
TMZ broke the story ... Farrah reached out to Charlie back in May via text message, saying she hopes to meet Sheen if she can score herself a role on "Anger Management." Charlie responded favorably, agreeing to meet up, but now ... it appears that's changed.
Translation: Farrah can forget about a playdate with Charlie ... but at least she's still a millionaire.
