This was the week companies did dumb things and then apologized to models. (We’re looking at you, FHM and Cadbury!) Diane von Furstenberg is continuing to expand her empire, while Lady Gaga‘s costumes put her in massive debt. Also, would you wear a dress made of cheese?
While, thankfully, Botox Mom‘s story was a hoax, it was concerning enough to prompt a cosmetic doctor to pen a cautionary tale for young people considering facial fillers to forestall wrinkles: Dr. Darren McKeown says using Botox as a preventative measure won’t actually stop the aging process. It’ll advance it.
In a new series of video interviews, Sheena Upton — better known by her alias Kerry Campbell or her nickname Botox Mom — reaffirmed that the story about giving her daughter Botox injections was entirely made up. In fact, Upton says, she’s not even sure what Botox is.
The eight year old girl whose mother regularly injected her with Botox (and recently defended her actions on national morning television) has been removed from her home and put into protective custody, Good Morning America reports.
In news that should surprise absolutely no one, a mother who regularly injects her 8-year-old daughter with Botox (and who unapologetically defended her actions on national television) is now being investigated by the human services agency in her hometown of San Francisco.
Back in March, we introduced you to Britney Campbell, the 8-year-old girl whose mother regularly injects her with Botox in the hopes of preventing wrinkles and furthering her bourgeoning beauty pageant career. While there has been some speculation that Campbell and her terrifying story were both a hoax (because, well, really?), GMA put those rumors to rest this morning by having both Britney and her mother on the show.
This week was all about weddings and proms! Because it’s spring! We saw Karl Lagerfeld in the flesh, celebrated Kanye‘s bold fashion choices, and speculated about John Galliano‘s replacement. There was also a whole lot of plastic surgery talk.
Before your youth-obsessed aunt makes another quick run to the dermatologist to touch up her Botox or Restylane, you might want to point her in the direction of a new study which has found that using muscle-deadening facial fillers can impair your ability to understand other people’s emotions.
Today in disturbing stories of childcare, a mother in San Francisco says she regularly injects her eight year old daughter’s face with Botox and fillers in the hopes of making her a star. Kelly Campbell says she first gave her daughter Britney a Botox injection on her eighth birthday — as a present, of course — and has since repeated the regime (with the addition of Restalyne) every three months.
Not that we have anything against elective surgery or whatever, but The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills have had a lot of it. And we’re not just saying that because they’re wealthy and kind of pretty and live in the world capital of tummy tucks and butt lifts — we’re just reporting what a few of them said on Judith Regan‘s Sirius XM radio show last week.
Why would an already gorgeous 18-year-old rising star get Botox and Thermage? Because she’s going to be on television, of course.
We’ll admit, even with the fact that Cindy Crawford is 44 with two children, we’re still no match for her – I mean, did you see her March spread for UK Harper Bazaar? Cased closed. But the “multi-million-dollar body,” as dubbed by The Fashion Book, is not a title that’s easy to maintain. In a vanity-obsessed with beating the clock, not pondering the thought of going under the needle or the knife is tough. According to Crawford, who once went through the very phase, succumbing to cosmetic procedures is okay – just don’t change your face.
