Demi Moore Looks Completely Unrecognizable With Her New Look

Demi Moore shocked fans with her drastic appearance when she strutted down the runway in a Fendi fashion show for Paris fashion week in January 2021, sparking plastic surgery rumors. The 58-year-old actress appeared to have stark lines across her cheeks as she walked and users on social media were quick to point out how different she looked rather than what she wore or how she walked, per Distractify

Of course, celebrities are no strangers to going under the knife or getting injections, but Moore's face became so unrecognizable that people were not even sure if it was her on the runway. Reactions from fans on Twitter were harsh. "It took me a while to recognise Demi Moore at the Fendi Couture show," one Twitter user commented after watching the show. Another user said, "I wouldn't have thought that was Demi Moore without the headline. Is that all bad fillers?" One other said that they had "Nothing against having work done. But don't do whatever Demi Moore has done." 

According to The Blast, people were most fixated on Moore's protruding cheeks and noticeably fuller lips. Plastic surgeon Dr. Frank Agullo told the outlet that he suspected Moore might have had injections put in her face, saying "Demi's injector has certainly gone overboard with fillers in the cheeks, lips, and mandible." He also speculated that Moore might have had a facelift, but the fillers were more overpowering. Agullo noted, however, that her face and neck skin looked smoother, likely due to "a combination of Micro-Botox and radiofrequency."

Demi Moore has always kept herself young through treatments

While Demi Moore's appearance at the Fendi fashion show might have caused people to believe she had massive work done, it most likely wasn't the first time she had gone under the knife. Life & Style outlined Moore's transformation from her days as a teen actress into her mid-fifties in 2018 and noted that she probably had plastic surgery to maintain her youthfulness.

Staying youthful has been a goal of Moore's throughout the years. The star famously revealed to David Letterman in 2008 that she relied on blood-sucking leeches to maintain her natural glow. "I feel like I've always been someone looking for the cutting edge of things that are optimizing your health and healing," she told Letterman. "I was in Austria doing a cleanse and part of the treatment was leech therapy."

Besides leech therapy, Moore is also a fan of non-surgical procedures. She tried a Thermage, a skin-tightening technique that uses radio waves, in 2013 and liked the treatment so much that she turned to it regularly, according to Stylecaster.

Other than treatments, Moore is a big advocate for good skin care. "My mother always drilled in me no matter what that you should wash, cleanse and moisturize your skin," she told Harper's Bazaar. Moore also credited a rose quartz sculpting tool for giving her a more touted look. "When you're over 50, when you feel like your skin is hitting the floor, this is an incredible uplift," she added.

Demi Moore believes beauty starts from within

Besides undergoing regular treatments, Demi Moore believes that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is equally important in keeping herself young. Moore spoke about her philosophy towards aging when she spoke at Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop panel in March 2019. "I think my biggest thing is really that less is more, as it's much easier to keep a routine going if we keep it simple, so it's doable," Moore said (via W Magazine). "Look, I don't have any super big secret. But I definitely think beauty starts on the inside. You can do anything you want to the outside, but if the inside isn't looking or feeling good, then I don't know if anything you do on the outside is going to be good enough."

Moore admitted that she does know she's getting older but has learned to accept it. "I have skin going in a direction that I would prefer it not go," Moore said at the Goop panel. "But I think my big mantra for this year is about acceptance... I do believe that when we hold upset, anger, hurt, pain or bitterness, it ages us and we wear it. That isn't to say we are always going to feel happy. But it's important not to hold on to things."

It seems like Moore is following her own advice, as she has not responded to comments about her Fendi appearance. Judging from her Instagram post after the show, it seems like her runway appearance might have been much ado about nothing.
