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.
