I‘M FOREVER FASCINATED BY HOW A NOSE JOB CAN TRANSFORM AN ORDINARY LOOKING WOMAN INTO A STRIKING BEAUTY. The list of luscious stars who’ve opted for rhinoplasty is long and impressive:
Halle Berry, Megan Fox, Jennifer Aniston, Marilyn Monroe, Scarlett Johannson, Paula Abdul, Beyoncé Knowles, Janet Jackson, Ashley Simpson, Katie Holmes, Tyra Banks, Salma Hayek, Stefani Germanotta, Angelina Jolie, Gwynneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Gisele Bundchen, Catherine Zeta Jones, Blake Lively, Kim Kardashian, Kate Moss, Winona Rider, Heidi Montag, Vivica Fox, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Nicole Ritchie, Michelle Pheiffer, Hillary Duff, Natalie Portman — they’ve all had nose jobs! In most cases the differences are striking. A little trim off the top or sides turned them into subjects of beauty that the cameras love. A nose job is de rigueur to join Hollywood’s elite. And last night on Jimmy Kimmel it appeared that another starlet has crossed over to the haute side: Kourtney Kardashian — is that you behind a new nose?
If I had a million dollars, I’d bet a million dollars that the oldest Kardashian child has recently gone under the knife. Look closely at the above photos and you’ll notice that her once wide nose is trimmer, thinner, the tip is more pronounced. I’m ashamed to say it but — she is more beautiful than she’s ever been. And it is not hormonal glow that’s making her look better. It’s the missing skin and cartilage from her nose.
Kourtney was paying a visit to Kimmel to promote, oh, I don’t know, what is it that those Kardashians sell? Sex? Sleaze? Celebrity? Stupidity? Whatever it is, it works, as evidenced by their increasing wealth.
When is someone going to do a legitimate long-term study on how nose jobs affect career trajectory and wealth? Megan Fox didn’t become “Mega Hot” before she had her nose adjusted. Halle Berry most certainly would not have been dubbed ”most beautiful” without her little fixer-upper. And have you seen Kate Moss before her nose job? Without surgical intervention, there is no way she would have become one of fashion’s most successful models.
New noses are mostly the province of the rich, but does rhinoplasty propel you up the socioeconomic ladder faster than a college degree? And if so, should insurance plans be paying for them? To my nose-obsessed mind, these are legitimate questions.
