Elle MacPherson has a new modeling contract with cosmetics powerhouse Revlon. She is an interesting choice, because she is looking rather plastic lately. Yes, I know she is 44 years old, but up until 1996, she was still looking seriously cute.

Then, in 2006, she broke up with a boyfriend. Oh, no. So, then 2007 rolls around and look what the cat dragged in.

She is looking rather tired at a public event to promote a new product. Check out how squinty her eyes seem, plus the area under them looks tighter. Her nose also looks less rounded at the nostrils. What sort of upgrade is this supposed to be? Looks like a downgrade to me.
2008 is supposed to be a banner year for Elle. In addition to her line of lingerie began in 2006, she is endorsing a sunscreen product and has the big Revlon deal. Goodie for her bank account, but not so good for her face. She is looking hard (and being described as arrogant and “up herself” by interviewers)!

Wowser, look at those lips. Ms MacPherson has always been generously lipped, but her upper pucker looks uncomfortably filled to the brim. But at least her eye area looks more relaxed and settled in. Even a supermodel millionairess can’t have it all.
Imagine, after years of struggling to make it as a performer, you find yourself in the category of ‘hot young male actor’. It happened to Mickey Rourke and he self destructed in the most awful of ways in the early 90s. In the latter part of the decade, he resurfaces looking radically different. Below is what we are left with, his once handsome looks vanished and in their place, strangely stretched skin, a boxer’s ravished nose, and oddly set eyes, baring no resemblance to the sultry pair he used in the halycon period of his career to seduce the masses of females, and an overall hardness to his face which transported him from the handsome leading man category to the character actor genre filled denizens bearing quirky looks.
Does Mickey feel the sting of no longer being a hottie? Rumor has it that lucky ladies can be taken to celebrity events in exchange for pretending to be his girlfriend. Due I give credence to this rumor? Well, I have not seen him photographed with the the same girl more than once and have heard no stories of him having a steady girlfriend (beyond Carre Otis years ago, whom he is alleged to have treated unkindly). Here are photos of Mickey on ‘dates’ (or what some would like to label as ‘business transactions):
Does plastic surgery have consequences? You be the judge.
In a story titled ‘Priscilla Presley Victim of Phony Cosmetic Doc‘, TMZ.com alleges that Priscilla Presley was the treated by a quack who injected her face will silicone.
In a New York Times story, silicone injected into skin was described as ‘a time bomb’, because of the possibility of delayed reactions 1 to 25 years later. Click here to read the story. Next up, a real plastic surgeon’s thoughts on Priscilla Presley.
How many people in Hollywood have their original body parts? Very few. Joan Rivers, I suspect, has no original body parts left. Her face does not move very much when she speaks (her daughter Melissa looks to be on the same path). She has the usual Hollywood plastic surgery look: bat brow, weirdly pinched nose from rhinoplasty, and strangely tight face. Now, here are the latest photos. I believe she may have had even more ‘alterations’. Scary.
