Former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes has been photographed for the first time since she began her 11-year prison sentence.

The photo shows Holmes dressed in a brown T-shirt and khaki-colored pants, with her hair down. Her only accessories were a blue lanyard around her neck, a simple black watch, and a pair of glasses.

The photos, taken by the agency Splash News and published on June 2 by DailyMail.com, were the first glimpse of what Holmes looked like as she started her new life behind bars.

On May 30, Holmes reported to the Federal Prison Camp in Bryan, Texas, a minimum-security women's prison.

In prison, the former healthcare mogul is expected to abide by a 6 a.m. wake-up call daily, dress in khaki clothes and dispense with any jewelry exceeding $100 in value, per an inmate admission and orientation handbook. She is set to also work in a prison job related to packing food in a factory line, which could pay as little as 12 cents per hour.

Once hailed as the world's youngest self-made billionaire who yielded the power to revolutionize healthcare, Holmes' reputation crashed in 2015 after The Wall Street Journal published an exposé revealing that she had been lying about the capabilities of the Theranos machines.

Holmes was convicted on four counts of fraud and conspiracy in January last year. She and her ex-boyfriend Ramesh "Sunny" Balwani were ordered to pay $452 million to the victims of Theranos-related frauds.
