Jocelyn Wildenstein is a wealthy socialite and ex-wife of billionaire art-dealer heir Alec Wildenstein. She has reportedly spent over $4 million on plastic surgery in an attempt to look more like the exotic wild cats she admires.
Because of this hobby, Jocelyn has been often nicknamed "Cat Woman" in the press. As part of her 1999 divorce deal with Alec, the judge ruled that Jocelyn could not spend any of her alimony from Alec on plastic surgery.
It has to be mentioned that Jocelyn met Alec in 1977 through billionaire Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi. They fell in love hunting lions on Alec’s Kenyan game ranch. It was exactly those lions that inspired her transformation though. She later told plastic surgeons that she wanted to look like big game cats.
Jocelyn married Alec in 1978 in Vegas, and divorced in 1999 after Jocelyn found out he had been cheating on her with a 19 year old Russian model.
To win him back she began undergoing plastic surgery to transform into a giant cat.
Jocelyn's self disastrous plastic surgery journey to win back her husband didn't work out and her husband later stated:"She seems to think that you fix a face the same way you fix a house".
It's not a secret that her husband absolutely loved big cats. It has to be said that they had two children together. Alec died of cancer February 2008 at the age of 67.
Some of the plastic surgeries that Jocelyn Wildenstein has had: eye work (to make them more cat-like), face lift, lip implants, cheek implants, chin implant, breast implants, liposuction, brow lift, soft tissue fillers and many many more... Jocelyn Wildenstein has done every plastic surgery available to get that cat look!
Many plastic surgeons openly criticize Wildenstein's surgeon for agreeing to make her look the way she does, saying that it's unethical.
So, how do you find the right plastic surgeon according to Jocelyn Wildenstein?
"Be specific about your needs and don't take no for an answer. Remember, like a housepainter, a plastic surgeon works for you.
Just as you wouldn't let a housepainter say "No, I think it looks good now. I refuse to do any more work as it would be dangerous." You should not let a surgeon bully you.
Make a clear list of what you want. If they cannot deliver, tell them you will get someone else to do it. Then spread a rumour that he/she left a sponge behind your left ear."
"Bring in a photograph, or a clipping from National Geographic as I did, to show the surgeon exactly the look you desire. Unless you have a knack for drawing don't make the Joan Rivers mistake of handing in a sketch on a cocktail napkin" Wildenstein advises.
"Make sure you are going to get value for your money. Michelle Pfeiffer, Candice Bergen, Lauren Hutton are just three examples of women who were taken for thousands of dollars yet have very little to show for it.
If the only comments you get after you've invested thousands are "my, you look rested" or "did you get your hair cut?" then you have not received your money's worth. Would you spend $50,000 on a tune-up for your old car? No, you would get a brand new one. Same thing here" Wildenstein claimed.
"Keep in mind that women are very jealous creatures. They will more than likely resent your transformation if they can't afford to do it themselves.
My advice in this instance is to consider the source and do your best to rise above their pettiness. If it all gets too much for you always remember: nothing gives you a lift like a little collagen" Wildenstein added.
What do you think of Jocelyn Wildenstein's plastic surgery?
To me, Wildenstein is a case of plastic surgery addiction. It is definitely a plastic surgery gone wrong! She looks absolutely scary. She turned herself into a monster!
I wonder who was the doctor who did this to her. No matter how much money she gave him, he should have refused and protected his client. I bet that this doctor won't show his face because he knows that he will never work again!
