Many celebrities get work done on their faces and bodies. A little injection here or there, they can often get away with (though the might still be ridiculed for doing so). But time after time, they come out from under the knife with a face full of mistakes. The results look unnatural and just plain ... off.
Behold, the top 5 celebrity plastic surgeries gone so wrong that they look unrecognizable.
Vice president of the high-fashion brand Versace, Donatella, 54 is the sister of the late Gianni Versace, founder of Versace, and a fashion designer herself. It’s no secret that the fashionista has gotten work done over the years. Today, she still has that broad smile, but now her lips are disproportionately huge compared to the rest of her face, which has clearly been shaved down around the chin and cheeks. Donatella only admits to getting Botox. "I'm not like this genetically," she admitted. "I use tons of cream and take care of my hair and skin.” There’s no real evidence that Versace herself is unhappy with the changes. Umm ... why not?
A socialite, Jocelyn Wildenstein became famous after marrying the French billionaire Alec Wildenstein. Jocelyn began experimenting with plastic surgery in 1997 and spent over $4 million on various procedures. Today she is known as the “queen of the jungle” (no, not in a good way). Alec was a fan of big cats so Jocelyn thought it would please him to make herself look more like one. Fast forward a few decades… and, well, the picture says it all.
Amanda Lepore is a 44-year-old transgender model and recording artist. Lepore had girly features since she was a teenager, and always wanted to look like a girl. It helped in her transformation. The model is said to have undergone multiple procedures in her lifetime, such as boob jobs, facelifts, nose jobs and lip injections and God only knows what not. Although she’s very open about the nature of her surgeries, Lepore chooses not to talk on the subject of how much they cost. She'll only say, "There is a reason I am labeled ‘The Most Expensive Body On Earth.'" Well, they do say no pain, no gain…
Joan Van Ark
Joan Van Ark is an American actress known for her role as Valene Ewing on the hit show Knots Landing. She has become more known for her cosmetic procedures rather than her acting capabilities. If Van Ark could turn back time, it's safe to say the actress might think twice before ruining her once stunning looks with cosmetic surgery. She has not said a single word about the procedures she's obviously had. It doesn't take rocket scientist to see the evidence on her face.
Italian socialite Michaela Romanini is as famous in Italy as Paris Hilton is in the United States. Beginning at a young age, she began experimenting with plastic surgery and ended up with a lot more than she bargained for. The injections became like a drug to Romanini, who continued to have them until her lips morphed her into what looks like an alien creature. Romanini used to be considered one of the most beautiful women in the country; now she's unrecognizable. Romanini doesn’t seem to care about looking natural. She’s kind of like Jocelyn Wildenstein in that regard. Why, Michaela, why?
