Cindy Lou Who?

By Glinda

Usually when I see a celebrity who has had “work” done to their face, I can sort of ignore it. I can acknowledge that is is either good (rarely) or bad (usually). And then I move on.

However, when I saw this recent picture of Cindy Crawford, I felt sad.


In her heyday, I thought she was probably the most beautiful of all the 80’s supermodels.  Anybody who can look that good with wet hair is obviously at the top of the genetic food chain.  She had a very unique look, and as she aged, I felt she was doing a great job of embracing the changes that come with it.

At 45, she is only five years older than I am, and she was already feeling that her face was “unacceptable.” Which I find odd because she isn’t really working anymore, and has never been an actress who relied on looking younger to play a certain age.

I’m sort of hoping that she was just looking especially puffy that night, and maybe whatever she injected her face with will reduce down to a recognizable level.

Because if a beauty like Cindy Crawford feels wrong at 45, what the heck am I supposed to feel like?

I am all for women doing things for themselves to make themselves feel better, but I have to stop and wonder if this whole anti-aging thing is getting a little out of hand.

    Hmmm….I don’t get it–I see her at two different ages of her life in the comparison photos above–and the bathing beauty photo is obviously of her as a young, teen or 20-year old woman. The facial features don’t look surgically altered to me at all–they’re the same shape and size, but she’s smiling in one photo and just looking in another. Is the cheekbone fleshiness what you mean by the “puffy” part? What am I missing?

    Even if she’s not modelling (none of those supermodels of the 80’s would ever model now, as they were all much bigger than the “norm” now and would actually be considered “plus sizers” today) she’s still selling her own line of decor products and still pursues a career based on her appearances in public. I do think there would be a lot of pressure on her to maintain her famous looks and I wouldn’t doubt she’d do it with surgery. It’s just not all that visible in these photos.

    I don’t think she looks “done” except that she so clearly can’t move her forehead.

    I can’t recall exactly where or when, but I believe she’s made comments on receiving European “beauty treatments” to keep from aging too quickly. I took this to mean injectables due to something she said. And those comments were made way before botox became the norm here in the US.

    I too notice a “puffiness” in the cheek area, the forehead also looks a bit off to me. It’s subtle yet it’s still there. I feel the same way when I see Christie Brinkley now too.

    Yeah, it looks like she had the same cheek filler or whatever that Madonna did a few years back. Hopefully Cindy doesn’t take it to that point where she doesn’t even look like herself anymore.
