Women who WILLED themselves into beauties

Name some females celebs who weren't born beautiful, but willed themselves into sex symbol status with plastic surgery, starvation, punishing workouts, and the best hair and makeup people $$ can buy


Jennifer Aniston

The media creates it more than they "will" themselves. And were Madonna and JA really considered "sex symbols?" Madonna was dubbed provocative and edgy, JA was cute girl next door.

Madonna definitely had her moment as a sex symbol. Hence the Wayne's World where she was declared the "babe of all time," as well as the Penthouse pics. A straight friend watched Body of Evidence just for her sex scenes (and truthfully, there is NO other reason to watch it).

Sarah Michelle Gellar tried so hard to make herself into a generic looking non-Jewish blonde, and for a couple of years there, it sort of worked. Between the blondarexica and the regular anorexia. But then she hit a wall and she couldn’t pull it off anymore.

Brittany Murphy tried so hard for this too but obviously with much more tragic results (plus she always looked freakish, Gellar actually did look good).

Bella Hadid is ugly AF and a "supermodel" in her head. The real supermodels are all mostly retired now. These trashy reality tv show girls and their bought careers are a joke. At least Cindy's daughter is legitimately pretty. I miss the old days!

by Anonymousreply 5605/19/2020

IMO, Cindy Crawford's daughter is not that great-looking. I do think Bella Hadid is good-looking, but she thinned (plastic surgery) her nose too much.

I think the new popular plastic surgery is to make your eyes slightly lifted at the outer corners, like Kendall Jenner.

Diana. She always had the amazing skin and eyes, of course, but when she arrived on the scene she had straight, mousy hair and was such a frump the cry for a makeover could be heard around the world. She was a bit plump, then she lost too much weight, and the long skirts and voluminous frills of the Sloane Ranger set did not sit well on her. This phase lasted till well after William's birth.

I've heard she went to Vogue and asked them to help, but certainly when she discovered the designer Catherine Walker she transformed into a celebrity so glamorous nobody can adequately play her in a movie.

Dusty Springfield is an excellent example. She completely reinvented her public persona, including her name. Her style was so over-the-top (even for the 60s) that it was virtually camp, even though Dusty always served it straight up. It seemed to be some abstract idea of "glamour" as much as glamour itself. Gay men adored her. Most people didn't know she was also gay.

She was a very different, very private woman under the wigs, the contact lenses, the makeup, etc.

I thought Pamela Anderson looked so cute in her early days r34. Then more plastic surgery, implants, the caked-on make-up made her look so hard and less feminine. She looks so different when you compare her first and last season on Baywatch and she wasn't even on that show for that long (let's not even discuss how many times she changed her name).

I liked her back when she was that cute Canadian girl.

I know Hunter Tylo ruined her face with plastic surgery but back in the '80s she did a movie with DL fave Daphne Zuniga called The Initiation. She looked different (and less pretty) than her Bold and the Beautiful days. She obviously got a nose job before B&B and it did wonders for her. It was the subsequent surgeries that ruined her face.

Gigi Hadid is not short for modeling, R79. Various sites list her as 5'9.5" to 5'10.5". For decades the standard height requirement for fashion models is 5'9" and above, and most of the 90s supermodels weren't 6 feet tall. Naomi and Linda are 5'9.5". Christy, Helena, and Stephanie are 5'10". Cindy and Carla Bruni are 5'9". Very few successful models are shorter than 5'9". I can think of three: Kate Moss and Laetitita Casta (both 5'7") and the late Gia Carangi (5'8").

At least Gigi has an expressive face. Bella, Kendall, and Hailey (snort) have dead eyes.

Plastic surgery can only improve on what you already have. If you were homely to begin with (Joan Rivers, Tori Spelling), no amount of plastic surgery will turn you into a beauty.

Salma Hayek got obvious breast implants, but her nose job was excellent.

Marilyn monroe fits this profile more than anybody in the last 100 years. She was always photogenic but she went from plump farm girl norma Jean into this incredible beauty thanks to the best hair and makeup people on the planet at the time, dieting, platinum blond, maybe a chin implant and a slight nose alteration. Also some people get more beautiful as they get a few years out the their teens. This was Marilyn. When she got thin you could see the bone structure in the face......I have never seen a more beautiful woman than the photos of the behind the scenes events the night she sang happy birthday at madison sq garden to the president. and tbe after party. The filmed part of her singing doesnt really show it but the photos around the Some photo sessions of hers afterwords, particlarly those on the beach in santa monica were not as good and I think she suspected she probably had about 3 or 4 years left before she wasnt going to like what she saw on the screen.

Marilyn Monroe didn't "will" herself into a beauty. She willed herself into an impossibly glamorous movie star sex goddess, but before she made that transformation she was a very pretty girl.

Norma Shearer. She had a cast in her eye and a lumpy figure but by doing everything possible to downplay her flaws (and relentless drive and ambition) she made herself into one of the most glamorous stars of her era.

I don't know where it comes from, but evidently there is a market for it. I knew a very pretty woman who completely destroyed her looks by bleaching to a canary yellow unknown in nature. Her hair was fried, no amount of conditioner could have calmed the frizz. She accessorized her look with huge bolt-ons, hooker hills (more like stilts) and a dark tan😮.

I cannot explain it, she was facially beautiful, if petite.

Angelina Jolie had bug eyes and a mouth that looked like a prolapsed anus and zero in terms of a chiseled face.

R146 You're probably right. According to Kate Beckinsale, who worked with him in Pearl Harbor, he made many rude comments about her looks and weight!

Jaime Bergman, who was on Son of a Beach and is a former Playboy Playmate, has talked about an old boyfriend who used to viciously insult her looks and weight. From the clues she's given, I'm 99% sure she's talking about Bay.

by Anonymousreply 14905/23/2020

That's because Bay is an insecure, angry, ugly fuck -like most Hollywood assholes behind the scenes- who knows these women would have nothing to do with him if he weren't working in Hollywood. He feels he needs to put them down because he undoubtedly feels their lives are too perfect being so beautiful, so he knocks them down a few pegs.

Many straight men are just angry, esp., the ugly ones who feel entitled to beautiful women. Bay would be an incel if not for his career.

It's so much easier for men to WILL themselves into beauties. If they spend all their spare time at the gym, eat nothing but protien, and get a chin implant - bingo!

As for women, well, I wonder if Audrey Hepburn did this. She was tall and spindly at a time when that wasn't fashionable for women, and her bone structure was not considered conventionally beautiful or photogenic. Yet, she managed to work her hair, makeup, camera angles, and especially clothes, to the point where she was considered a great screen beauty and a fashion icon. She certainly made it look easy, but it can't actually have been easy.

Kylie Jenner’s work had been great until recently (except for the gigantic butt). Now, she’s looking strange.

Ariana Grande’s plastic surgery made created a lovely gamine look for her, once she was rid of the huge honker. She's adorable.

Kendall Jenner has gone too far. She looks very generic now.

Caitlynn and Kendall should have kept their original noses or at least not narrowed them so much.

Halle Berry’s work is fantastic although she is ugly on the inside.

Bella Hadid has gone too far. She looks plastic and like an alien. She has dead eyes and always looks so sad and tired. I don’t know if it is the Lyme disease that makes her this way.

Amber Heard got a good nose job but it is really her (old) hair, makeup and styling that turned her into a beauty. She has never looked as good as she did when she was with Johnny and attending all of those events with him.

Kaia Gerber is finally starting to show some character in her modeling photos. Sh’s looking better.

Meghan Markle’s veneers looked the best in the photo below where she is exiting Canada House. The top side teeth were a bit smaller and made her look much younger. Then, she got a set of huge veneers that look fake and like she has trouble closing her lips. The too big veneers were on display when she and Harry returned to London and she wore that hideous green get-up.

Bette Davis, R194, can't forget her.

I don't mind the odd nose job or chin job, sometimes people are born with issues of too much/not enough. A facelift or neck pull or eye tuck, whatever, it's fine. You're still you, and other than that poor girl whatshername - Joel Grey's daughter, you still look mostly like you and once it all settles down you look fine.

It's the total transformations from looking like one person when you were born to looking like a completely different person later on through multiple surgeries. It's fucking weird.

Look at photos of the Kardashians when they were young and then look at them now. They're unrecognizable. Kendall and Kylie are still very young and they have obliterated their original looks. I suppose it seems less weird to them when the whole family's doing it but most people who do this kind of transforming don't come from that sort of family.

I vote for the lower left photo as Kylie's best "look" here, she's fresh and pretty. Tweaked a little, better but not yet the cartoon she is on the right.

"What does that indicate about your psyche that you basically have a full head transplant? I don’t get it."

Well when it comes to women in the entertainment field, people who get "full head transplant" surgeries aren't so much suffering from a mental disorder as hoping to make money out of it. If you work in a field where all the big money is reserved for people who look young and beautiful, you move heaven and Earth and your own facial features to try to look young and beautiful.

Although of course, that sort of thing is quite the slippery slope. Trying to stay employed in a field where age discrimination is common and legal can easily turn into grotesque oversurgery, which is followed by more surgeries to fix the previous surgeries. I bet some of these women are spending more than they could ever hope to earn, if they'd kept their looks.

Every straight guy I know prefers a softer, more natural look so I don't understand what the motivation is to look so fake. I suppose they're competing with other women but it seems counter-intuitive to try to outfake each other when that's not what the men they are competing for want.

Yes, straight men usually want their wives or serious girlfriends to have the softer, more natural look, but haven't you ever seen a straight man ignoring his natural-looking wife or girlfriend to goggle at one of the blow-up dolls? Straight men pay attention to the Bratz-doll types, a lot of attention even if it's usually very temporary, and some regard them as toys or trophies.

Of course they don't take the Bratz-dolls seriously, and a lot of them don't think that sort of women are really people. Easy mistake to make, I suppose, the way they look.

Garbo got mocked for being a big sturdy gal, but she was 5'6" and slim - an average-sized woman. But she was big compared to most actresses, because being tiny and dainty was in style.

In the late twenties and early thirties when Garbo was at her height, the fashionable beauty was "Five foot two, eyes of blue", with tiny hands and feet and a baby face, even annoying affected baby voices were in style. Garbo was slightly taller than average when it was fashionable to be short, broad-shouldered and broad-hipped when it was fashionable to be small-boned, and had a deep voice when sounding like a toddler was in. And face it, she was kinda butch in real life, so yeah - she wasn't a think like the other actresses of her day and some people mocked her for it.

And even though I'll talk about Garbo until someone makes me stop, I still don't think she belongs on this thread. She didn't WILL herself into a beauty, she was born with all the ingredients for beauty, and it was the staff of MGM that brought it out rather than Garbo herself.

A fashion model won't get hired if she lies about her height or weight. If her agency says she's 5'9", then it's true. Kate Moss, a short outlier among models, never lied about her 5'7" height because she would've been called out on it if she had said she was taller.

Actors (like Tom Cruise) can lie because how they appear on film is more important than their actual measurements. Unlike models, they don't need to fit into specific sample sized clothes determined by fashion designers.

Bella is incapable of much expression besides her dead-eyed look, due to all that obvious plastic surgery, which carved up her face to erase her natural, distinctive features. She is meh at her job.

Another vote for Julia Roberts.

Carla Bruni had a nose job and cheek implants as well. Just like the second rate Bella Hadid. You just didn’t have social media to compare old photos in those days with experts analyzing features and all. Lots of models had plastic surgery then as well. There is just SO much more now as well as the abhorrent nepotism which has ruined the fashion industry.

I think Julia Roberts looked hotter at the very beginning of her career in Mystic Pizza than anything she did after.

R276 I thought Murphy was better looking before she got skinny and blonde.

I loved her in My Best Friend's Wedding

Speaking of Brittany Murphy.. who believes the way she died? Was there a thread on her and her weird husbands death ? Murder suicide?

by Anonymousreply 28406/09/2020

Poor Britney Murphy. Yes, I wish someone would do a full on investigation on her death. The mother and the husband just all seemed totally bizarre. RIP. So devastating.

Greta Garbo was 5'7 inches tall. And according to the costume designer Adrian, her measurements were 35 and a half, 28, 33 and a half. She had an average figure.

Damn... Ivanka Trump's head looked like a fucking potato before. Don't get why Trump was/is so obsessed with her.

I mean, besides the fact that he's a narcissist and views her as a female version of himself. Not only that, but he also had her with Ivana, who was probably his favorite out of all his wives.

Didn't he have Don Jr and Eric with Ivana too? He doesn't seem to like them much.

They didn't will themselves into beauties OP, they surgically made themselves beauties. And by the way, when they have ugly babies don't be surprised. Surgery does not alter genes.

R289, you've reminded me of the all the Korean ladies who get plastic surgery:

Yes there's a difference between the effort and attitude that makes someone appear beautiful, and the actual physical alteration.

You will never convince me that Goop is beautiful. She had a thin, blonde elegance that carried her in her youth and all the PR in the world exalting her Grace Kelly bona fides, but she willed that label. Sheer confidence. Charlize is beautiful. Margot is. Not Gwyneth and it is painfully clear now that she's old.

Anne Hathaway also willed it with a bit glamour.

R290 is that really the same person?

by Anonymousreply 29206/11/2020

r291 I did some work with Dan Bucatinsky, who is Don Roos' husband, and in their house there is a pic of a young Goop with Don,, Man she was plain- thick nose, freckles, wavy frizzy hair.

Anna Nicole Smith was nothing much to look at. She looked like an average white trash girl. But she bleached her hair bright blonde, got huge breast implants, piled on the makeup and voila! She was then considered this gorgeous babe. Of course she got plastic surgery, too, and eventually really overdid it. But before all the improvements, she was, at best, ordinary looking.

R291 Goop is indeed plain but she, as you pointed out, had that prissy WASP-y ice princess thing going on that affluent straight white men go ga-ga for.

It only works when the woman is young though, then she just becomes a Karen.

A Karen or a Gloria?

Jackie On Assistance.

by Anonymousreply 29706/13/2020

Yeah, Jackie "On Assistance" Bouvier Kennedy Onassiss is actually a good example. She had a square face that wasn't beautiful by any standard, unruly curly hair, and a figure that lacked curves when curves were in style.

She spent her adult life convincing the world that she was beautiful, she used all the hairstyling and makeup and couture and casual chic that money could buy, and it worked! She was hailed as a beauty for much of her life, even though she wasn't.

[Quote] a figure that lacked curves when curves were in style.

Disagree. Check out the top models of the time.

R299, most human beings do not consider a fashion model's figure to be the ideal of sexual appeal.

Khloe Kardashian. In 15 years she’s turned from a pale coarse featured giantess to tan, slim and approaching pretty.

I know this is an odd segue, but Madonna's original breasts were perfect. I had several girlfriends tell me this after seeing Body of Evidence. I don't know if she had them worked on since then, but her figure in the late 80s/early 90s was sublime.
