Botox, meet face. Face, meet Botox.



Speaking of Rachel Zoe... HERE'S a flash from the past (an old post on RZ), and also a little (alleged) before & after fun.

I know it's, like, BOTULISM and stuff, but she looks much better, no?

Although...maybe it's just the light? Who knows.

GROSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! also, she never fixes around her mouth ...and that's the worst part ....god she's so fug! too skinny as well.

Petunia Face said...

Rachel Zoe is like a Proactiv P. Diddy commercial for Botox. The Before & After totally sells me (and makes me forget the whole BOTULISM detail).

Simone said...

she needs to stay out of the blooming sun, eat some organic food and drink water.

i just don't understand how she looks like this at her age. puzzling.

decorno said...

I love her. I love her style, I love her pruny face. I love her commitment to accessories. I love that she's such a cartoon. I keep a photo of her up on my wall at work... she's trying on some ridiculous fur collar but is wearing her bathrobe... and also wearing heels. She's always in character. Her consistent commitment to being totally ridiculous impresses me.

I have only watched part of the show, though. Something tells me my idea of her (thanks to the NY Times mag profile of her a while back) is more charming that her TV persona.


And Simone - YES. She's only 5 or 6 years older than me and looks like she's 20 yrs past. Really don't know how this happens.

She looks like a drawing in the Post Office of someone who writes bad checks. Like one of Dana Plato's girlfriends.

the quarter rat said...

I'll tell you how it happens, D: too many nights marching through Bolivia. That face is what 10 years in the VIP room looks like.

karina said...

Much better!!!
I can not see the tv show here, and I want it!!!
Some days I hate her but mostly I have to admit she is very talented.
her celebrities clients are always perfect!!!

She looks like Kelly from "Beverly Hills 90210," after a couple of decades at a cut-rate escort service.

Sarah's Fab Day said...

I bet she got way more done that just botox! Probably a mini-lift and some sort of laser treatment, those deep lines don't disappear with just a little botox. But who the hell care's I would do it too if I was called Raisin Face.

Comment of the day award goes to Quarter Rat.

Quarter Rat and Hello Gorgeous:

My commenting heroes.

Alex said...

Ok, I'm dying to know how old she is. Any ideas? I heard she was possibly thinking of children -and I had her waay past that age.

Anonymous said...

37, according to IMDB.

the quarter rat said...

Thanks D! You give me the best material.

Now try this on for size:
Tinsley Mortimer + massive blow habit = Rachel Zoe

Regular reader here, almost 38, thee kids, look good but had TONS of wrinkles on my forehead and between my eyes. I inherited it from my frowny-grumpy looking father. People were always asking why I was frowning (and I didn't know I was).
I've had botox done twice and LOVE it. I can't say enough good things and really have no desire to do anything else in terms of artificial assistance. People keep saying, "you look great" but can't figure out specifically what's changed and my kids haven't asked, "What's the matter Mommy?" since before I had it done. So, go ahead and judge, I'm still thrilled w/ the results. Best part is the Nurse Prac who was doing it at the dr's office the first time started her own place and is half the price.

I love her hair!! I think she's pretty, but would do something with her baggie-eyes.

Bananas!

Her mouth and chin are weak, a little shapeless.

If you wanted to be generous, you could call her attractive, but if you wanted to be accurate, you couldn't call her pretty.

Charlene said...

She needs to stop tanning and get a deep chemical peel, and to gain 20 pounds.

Did you see her in some magazine (was it Vogue? I saw it online) where they beefed her up to a size eight and she looked gorgeous! No funny dents between the breasts!

Kwana said...

"Light? Right," she says, nodding, but not believing a word of it.

the glamourai said...

so maybe she's not the most gorgeous specimen, but she IS great at what she does (yay for her "commitment to being totally ridiculous") & people are too quick to forget that!

long live la zoe!

hello gorgeous said...

Enough with the botox already, people. Everybody is starting to look the same.

And have you seen Paula Deen lately? She looks like she had her botox and injections done by Madame Tussaud's. (Just got back from the bookstore and she's on every magazine cover.)

Anonymous said...

Oh, Paula Deen looks like something only taxidermy could create.

Jessie said...

Good grief, woman! You gotta warn us before you post an image like that...

Still love her though.

Oh and also, Decorno, you should definitely try and sneek a peak at the September issue of Bazaar, where she lets them stuff her dress and photoshop some L-Bs on her. Makes her look SO much better.

Dear QuarterRat
I'm seconding the award and freely admitting that I will cop those lines and claim them as my own brilliance at the next appropriate conversation. And trust me, I need them. I'm at the perculiar 40ish age where I have younger friends AND older friends. Which means I have several 30th, 40th and 50th birthday party invites this fall, each with their particular charms. Mostly I like to terrorize the 30ish girls who are smoking by telling them that what happens at 40th and 50th parties is that everyone is in the corner going: god she's too skinny, god she got fat, omg is she still smoking, omg did she get some work done, omg is she still with that loser, omg is she still doing blow? FYI - I'm finding the 50th birthday parties the most fun because they generally have enough money for an open bar and wait staff. And classic rock tunes, no bloody indie shit. Just sayin.

It's botox and that nasal fold filler injection. My laser lady keeps trying to sell me on it.

Zoe still looks like a homeless man with a Paris Hilton weave.

the quarter rat said...

@anon 8:21,
feel free - I'm used to hearing others use my lines.

I'm also 40ish, and agree that my older friends throw the best parties, with the exception of a narcotically beautiful 31yo trustifarian friend with great taste. She looks like the love child of Kate Beckensale and Nicole Kidman (pre botox) and interesting people flock to her.

Anonymous said...

Reality check here -> and I mean one of my own. I want to look down my nose at Ms. Zoe and her Botox injected forhead, but I must face the mirror. I need it too. I need Botox. I need filler in the parentheses that cup my mouth. I need micro-dermabrasion to get diminish my teenage acne artifacts. I need it all.

And I would do it all if I could only afford it. Deep down (or maybe not so deep down) I'm vain. I just can't afford to be Botox vain.

Seriously, pretty people make the world go around. They date the most eligible bachelors, get promoted faster, get better service at a crowded bar, and fuck it, just look better in the random candid photo at a party.

Decorno, I feel one of your "Answer anonymously if you must," topics coming on... I think we all need to know what "work" other Decornites have had, and what they thought was worth the money vs. what f*cked them up for life.

C'mon. Infinitely more interesting than other recent topics.

I think RZ is older than her stated age. I'd guess the truth to be closer to 42 or 44.

I actually am kind of a Botox-hater, since I think most people that get it don't need it at. all.

Rachel Zoe, on the other hand, makes me a true believer. If I were her I'd be lining up at my derm's office every month on the dot. Girlfriend waited WAY too long to take the plunge.

I just noticed: She can't close her mouth. She's got the mouth-breather syndrome, like P. Diddy.

Amanda Wells said...

Wow - as if I needed another reminder to stay out of the tanning bed. ew.
