LA-based Danish actress/model, Kristina Korsholm, ran into a more familiar type of LA Crone, the Silicone Crone, at a recent art opening in Hollywood.
She blogs "The crowd [at LAB ART gallery] was very 'happening' and at one point I almost felt like I was in NYC. But that was until LMFAO walked in the door and I spotted a 60 year old woman in 4 inch heels with double D's and a facelift bumping and grinding in front of the DJ both. Then I remembered 'Oh! Wait, yes we are in Hollywood'."
I know the type. We all know the type, but I'm here to tell you that's not the only way women choose to age in this town.
Nonetheless, when I visit certain L.A. areas such as Brentwood or Beverly Hills, I'm always startled by the uniformity of plastic surgery trends modeled by matrons. Everyone's entitled to having a little "work" done if anti-aging treatments help a person's self-esteem. However, I think it's sad that people accept off-the-shelf looks. If I were to pay so much money for invasive plastic surgery, I'd at least want to look like myself and no one else.
What's up with the cheek implants that make tightened faces so gaunt? I'm glad the collagen lip fad has faded but injecting Botox around the mouth is still too popular. Combined with the cheek implants, the recipient looks like Skeletor.
