From breast enlargement to botox, plastic surgery has long been considered a hush-hush topic in the Hollywood hills.But with a year-on-year rise in Brits going under the knife, A-listers are no longer afraid to get candid on the work they’ve had done.In 2017, former Spice Girl, Victoria Beckham, famously penned a letter to her 18-year-old self writing: “I should probably say, don’t mess with your boobs. All those years I denied it – stupid. A sign of insecurity. Just celebrate what you’ve got.” The fashion designer reportedly underwent breast enlargement surgery back in 1999 and had them reduced in size a decade later. While some celebrities have had the works even if they’re still not quite sure it’s worth the price tag.Back in 2002, actress Jamie Lee Curtis revealed that she may as well have a plastic surgeon on speed dial.In an interview with Shape magazine, she said: “I’ve done it all. I’ve had a little plastic surgery. I’ve had a little lipo. I’ve had a little botox. And you know what? None of it works. None of it.”From Kylie Jenner‘s not-so-secret lip fillers to Gwyneth Paltrow’s botox, these are the celebrities who have openly admitted to having plastic surgery.
A photography exhibition featuring people with a rare and untreatable skin condition is creating a buzz thanks to its empowering celebration of beauty in diversity.‘How Do You C Me Now?’ is a series of 30 portraits showcasing people with Congenital Melanocytic Naevus (CMN), a condition, which is caused by a mutation in the NRAS gene.According to the charity Caring Matters Now, CMN is a type of birthmark that typically appears in newborn babies. It presents as large, dark brown birthmarks, which can cover up to 80% of the body, and can also appear internally.Large or very numerous CMN are rare, occurring in just 1 in 20,000 births worldwide, which means people who have the condition can feel isolated and face negative comments about they way they look, causing them to lack self-confidence.But the new exhibition aims to change that.
The large majority of celebrities might appear flawless, but many of them live with ongoing skin complaints – just like us.A host of A-listers have been frank about their struggles with acne: Earlier this week, 22-year-old model Taylor Hill spoke about her battle with acne, saying she had struggled with the condition since the age of 15.“[I get acne] because of make-up, travel, and hormones. I get my really bad breakouts around my period,” she told Allure. The Victoria’s Secret model is known for sharing unedited, make-up free selfies with her 12.3 million Instagram followers, which only highlight her skin complaint. “I think it’s so important to share that realness and that part of my life because I’m a human being,” she told the publication.From Katy Perry to Emma Stone, click through the slideshow to see the other celebrities who have also opened up about their battles with acne.Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
