Alexa Ray Joel: Plastic Surgery or Expert Contouring? You Decide!



We’ve been really fascinated by contouring lately, and why shouldn’t we be? You are LITERALLY giving yourself a new face via the power of makeup. With a few swipes of really, really brown foundation, and then a few more swipes of really, really white foundation, you suddenly have a thinner nose, chiseled cheeks and a defined jawbone.

It’s in learning about contouring that we’re now more careful with who we accuse of going under the knife. Heidi from The Hills? Def her a few things taken care of at her local plastic surgeon’s office (as she’s openly admitted). Someone like Kim Kardashian, on the other hand — could be skilled contouring!

Today Page Six is reporting that Alexa Ray Joel, daughter of Billy Joel, is denying all allegations that she went under the knife (aside from a nose job in 2010, which she ‘fesses up to) to achieve her new look. Photographed with her mother just a few days ago, Joel is looking waaay different than she has in the past. Most notably, her once-modest ta-tas are ginormous. One could even go on to say that she had an eye lift, some cheekbone implants and maybe yet another nose job.

Addressing Facebook, Joel said the following:

“On a personal (and slightly ridiculous note): I would just like to add that all of the continuously circulating rumors that I have had extensive ‘face-work’ and undergone breast-augmentation surgery is simply and entirely 100% false.

The only thing I have ever had done is my nose, which I have always been completely candid, honest, and open about- and I can swear on my Beloved Gypsy-Stella The Cat that this is the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help me God! (But hey, there could be worse rumors circulating, so, I’ll take it).

Any visibly-positive alterations in terms of my public-image are an absolute and sole credit to my brilliant makeup-artist and stylist, @darlingcait … Who is a true beauty-wizard and visionary. (That, combined with the fact that I actually have a hearty dose of self-confidence now- which took me a little extra minute or so to find.) ; ) But hey, wouldn’t it be nice if the press could just focus on my music and stage-presence? Because, honestly, I would rather be judged, critiqued, and picked apart for my actual work. So, on that note… Please join me for an intimate evening of music, martinis, [and more!] at the Cafe Carlyle- get your tickets now- the shows are almost all sold-out!!!!!!”

Usually I would be quick to call BS on her statement, but maybe I shouldn’t be so doubtful. Could this be a classic case of contouring looking a little too realistic? I’m turning to you guys to weigh in…

Heather is a senior at FIT majoring in Visual Presentation and Exhibit Design (try saying that five times fast...while you've got a martini in your hand). The best sext she ever sent read, "I'm trying to have a romantic moment and you keep talking about your boner." She hopes to write even better things here.
