Here’s something to look at as one contemplates plastic surgery. She doesn’t have that scary Stepford Wife thing that one associates with American women, and I applaud her for that, but we are so bombarded with Plastic Women that our eyes have become attuned to smooth “ageless” beauty and so this photo has a scary aspect to it too. Lauren Hutton has always been a great beauty, but in a way that makes getting old so fraught with trauma – if age has done this to her, what lies in store for us…? Having said all of this, I believe that plastic surgery is for frightened women who cannot face the reality of the clock, and looking at this woman you can see that she is supremely confident in her skin, which is what life is all about (or should be!) Bravo, Ms Hutton – c’est vous la plus belle de toutes!
She is my all-time favorite model, and she is still absolutely beautiful. I saw her on the street once about 5 years ago, and she was stunning. I am 39, and I have to admit I am worried about the wrinkles I see coming, but pics like this make me feel so much better (not that I ever looked like Lauren, unfortunately!)
