If you don’t know who Jocelyn Wildenstein is — you are about to!
The New York socialite and plastic-surgery lover is known throughout the world as “catwoman.” The Swiss-born Wildenstein has invested millions of dollars into cosmetic surgery procedures in an effort to, allegedly, please her cat-loving husband, Alec Wildenstein, who died in 2008.
It is believed that Wildenstein went through a process called canthopexy — a procedure that elevates the eyes to give them a cat-like appearance.
When viewing photos before Jocelyn went under the knife — one must agree the transformation is startlingly different.
According to an expert, the socialite has had upper and lower eyelid surgery, a brow-lift, face-lift, lip-plumping injections, chin augmentation, fat grafting and/or cheek implants.
However, despite the 71-year-old claiming she does not have an addiction to surgery — she does admit she is not finished with getting more work done.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, Jocelyn denied having cosmetic surgery at all and referenced her Swiss background for her “high cheekbones and long hair.”
Lloyd Klein, her fiance, revealed that when the couple is in France, Wildenstein is often mistaken for French actress and sex symbol Brigitte Bardot.
And when she was asked directly if she has ever had surgery, Jocelyn responded: “No, especially when we look back at my pictures – I think of course I am maybe more beautiful (back then).
“When we are young there’s a certain freshness we lose with the years. But you still find the same eyes, same high cheeks, or same nose. I think I was more pretty,” she admitted.
When Jocelyn divorced Alec Wildenstein in 1999 — she set a record for divorce settlements. She went on to become one of America’s wealthiest women due to the settlement.
Reportedly, she secured a £2m (or $2.7m) in divorce payment as well as £80m (or $10.8m ) a year in maintenance.
Currently, she lives in a £10m (or $13.5m) apartment in Trump Towers, which is owned of course by the former, disgraced US President — Donald Trump.
This past December, it was reported Wildenstein was not able to afford food after her ex-husband’s maintenance payment was cut off.
