There’s a fine line between pretty and botched, and some celebrities may have crossed it.
“People inject too much stuff into their faces,” fashion designer Tom Ford said on Tuesday’s episode of iHeartPodcast “Table for Two with Bruce Bozzi.”
“You look at a lot of celebrities now and you just think, ‘Oh my gosh, what do they see when they look in the mirror?’ They don’t even look like themselves anymore. And it’s really dysmorphia,” he continued, referring to the result of body dysmorphic disorder.
“I think a lot of these people lose touch with who they were. They see a line and they think they have to fill it. They see a wrinkle and have to fill it in. They see someone else’s mouth and they think they need to have it.”
Ford, 61, has just announced his departure from his namesake brand following its acquisition by Estée Lauder for $2.8 billion in 2022.
While Estée Lauder claimed the creative director would remain at the helm through 2023, Ford launched its “final collection” last week.
Throughout his career, the famed designer hasn’t been afraid to express his opinions, no matter how controversial.
Last year, he criticized the Met Gala for losing its “chic” touch, arguing that the legendary charity event had “turned into a costume party.”
In fact, he is strongly opposed to the concepts altogether, declaring that he doesn’t “make themes”.
His comments on cosmetic procedures coincide with the younger generation’s craze for cosmetics, as people under 30 seek injectables and augmentations at higher rates.
But a select few are choosing to naturally aging as more celebrities lament their past procedures.
In a trailer for the upcoming season of “The Kardashians,” Kylie Jenner, 25, called a conference with her famous sisters about “the beauty standards we’re setting.”
The mother-of-two said she never wants her eldest daughter, 5-year-old Stormi, to follow in her footsteps.
“I wish I had never touched anything to begin with,” he says in the video.
In March, “Friends” star Courteney Cox revealed that her biggest regret in life was injectables, admitting she “got a lot wrong.”
“It’s a domino effect,” said the actress, 58, adding that she has been able to “reverse” most of her padding faux pas. “You don’t realize that you look a little out of place, so you keep doing more, because you look normal.”
Amid a frenzy to snag the viral weight-loss drug Ozempic, people are, in turn, ditching their curves.
New York women are lining up to reverse their Brazilian butt lifts, or BBLs, for $25,000 each.
In fact, Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. Ryan Neinstein recently proclaimed that it is currently the most sought after procedure.
