PostSubject: "Super-thin lips"? How dumb can you get!   Thu Feb 28, 2008 12:34 am

During a search, I got this strange teaser on google...
"...when super-thin lips were in style..."

Naturally, I was curious. I can't remember a time when super thin lips were ever in style. So, I clicked on the teaser to read the whole article. Here's the part I had to share:

"Long gone are the days of Elizabeth Taylor, Doris Day, and Katherine Hepburn, when super-thin lips were in style-now, it's all about a plump and juicy kisser, la Angelina Jolie, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Kylie Minogue. "


Huh? Are you kidding me? La Liz with THIN LIPS? Does the writer even know who these people are or did she just ask her gramma to name three actresses she loved as a kid for her article? And secondly, has the writer ever heard of awfulplasticsurgery.com or Gallery of the Absurd? They make fun of people with trout pout! We ALL do!

Perhaps anyone who existed before the days of paying to look like someone punched you in the kisser is relevant? Very Happy

Or even irrelevant.

Jessica Alba...now there's a "natural" beauty. We used to watch Dark Angel and were amazed by how her lips inflated and deflated throughout the series.

Speaking of spelling, sorry, I meant to say "irrelevant". I know I should know who Jessica Alba is but I don't.

How bizarre; the writer seems be confusing "super-thin" with normal and "plump and juicy" with freakishly swollen.

Over here our most famous lip disasters belong to Leslie Ash and Pete Burns.

Ash was the gorgeous female lead in Quadrophenia back in 1979. She was still gorgeous up until a few years ago when she felt the need to model herself on Daffy Duck. The results are all over the web. Her misfortune continued when she was admitted to hospital for "cracked ribs and a punctured lung" caused by falling off the bed during a bout of "energetic lovemaking" (her hubbie was later arrested on suspicion of giving her a right good hiding) and promptly got infected with MRSA!

You may or may not be familiar with Mr Burns who was the androgynous lead singer with Dead or Alive (You Spin Me Right Round ...blah blah blah). He was quite a good looking chap before opting for surgery to make him look like a cheap, plastic slut with a yearning for the deep ocean.

Before:



..and after

I'm sure Ms Ash takes great comfort in the 5M settlement she got from the health service as compensation for her MRSA infection. Funny how I personally know of two people who have serious, long term health problems now thanks to a hospital-caught MRSA infection. Neither acquired as a result of spousal abuse or unnecessary cosmetic surgery. And neither will ever see a penny in compensation for it.

Pays to be Somebody these days eh?

However, speaking of pouts, I think Sophia Loren had the most fabulous natural pout. A full lower lip is supposed to be a sign of intelligence and sensuality. Never mind campers. If you weren't born with it, you can always fake it. The intelligence and sensuallity I meant. pig

Its just occured to me, perhaps the writer of the article has confused eyebrows with lips? Pencil thin eyebrows were the fashion with some actresses for a long time.

Hey Lost Soul, did you see AwfulPlastic's link to Pete Burns? http://www.awfulplasticsurgery.com/archives/006483.html


They wonder if his lips could now qualify as a floatational device.

I did have a quick look but I got infested with pop-ups.

There must be some severe mental health issues with those that go for 'extreme' cosmetic surgery. They seem to have the opposite condition to body dysmorphia so that instead of detesting their perfectly good looks, they seem to to think that resembling a burnt cat (bride of Wildenstein), depressed Halibut (Leslie Ash) or pink Halloween Ladymonster (Pete Burns) is really rather sexy.

Maybe it's the logical progression of body dysmorphia; they hate their appearence then go on to spend thousands on surgery and switch from dysmorphic to delusional.

I think some have another mental health issue, surgery obsession. Its almost like a fetish.

I really, really fancied Pete Burns back in the early days of Dead or Alive. He was gorgeous pre-surgery. It's sad to see what he's done to himself. The one thing he hasn't felt the need to do is have his tongue sharpened. It's lethal as it is!
