Fashion designer Carolina Herrera is famous for her impeccable taste and style and her lengthy history of having a celebrity clientele, from Jackie Kennedy Onassis to Renee Zellweger. It seems that in addition to sharing secrets of amazing style with the stars, Carolina also shares some beauty secrets, including plastic surgery.
75-year old Carolina Herrera has received many accolades over the years, including recently being honored with the 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion. Throughout her nearly 40-year long career Carolina always looks beautiful and refreshed and it seems that plastic surgery may be her secret.
Back in 2010, Carolina revealed many of her beauty secrets, including staying hydrated and wearing sunscreen.
According to Carolina, her daily beauty routine includes, “The most important thing I do is drink lots of water. I wash my face with Universal Anti-Aging Cleanser by New York dermatologist Dr Patricia Wexler – I love her products as they are so light on my skin. I then use Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream, Sally Hansen Your Skin Makeup Foundation, Chanel Les 4 Ombres in Smoky Eyes, Maybelline Define-A-Lash Mascara and Bobbi Brown Lip Color in Plum Berry.”
And if she got trapped on a dessert island, she would try to avoid the sun and wear sunscreen, “I would sit under an umbrella wearing a panama hat and dark glasses, covered in Bain de Soleil sunscreen – it’s so important to protect your skin.”
However, when it comes to plastic surgery, Carolina confessed to a blelpharoplasty on her eyes, but says that she believes in parameters when it comes to going under the knife. Like her fashion style, Carolina says that restraint is key and plastic surgery should never look unnatural and that lip augmentation is too much.
“I’ve had work done on my eyes in the past. However, I think there are limits. I wouldn’t ever have too much done as it looks unnatural, and I don’t think you should do anything to your lips as it changes the entire shape of your face.”
Carolina admits that celebrity dermatologist Dr. Patricia Wexler is on her speed dial but she didn’t mention her plastic surgeon’s name. However, it is rumored that New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrell Aston counts Carolina amongst his celebrity clientele.
Dr. Aston is renowned for his facelift procedures, which produce natural-looking results. Carolina may not have yet had a facelift in 2010, but recent photos of her at fashion week show that although she does have signs of aging that befit a woman her age, she doesn’t have especially loose jowls or sagging skin on her face. Either Dr. Wexler is working wonders with chemical peels and non-invasive cosmetic procedures or Carolina may have opted for a facelift to help tighten up any sags and deep wrinkles. When it comes to clothing, Carolina insists on being wrinkle-free and it seems she may feel similarly about her appearance.
Carolina looks amazing and clearly takes good care of herself; even though she occasionally indulges in grilled cheese sandwiches and fries.none
