Demi Moore has sparked speculation that she has undergone plastic surgery after showing off a very dramatic new look on the Fendi runway at Haute Couture Fashion Week – leaving spectators stunned.
The 58-year-old was almost unrecognizable as she joined a host of A-list models on the catwalk for designer Kim Jones’ Fendi Spring Summer 2021 presentation in Paris on Wednesday, and left many social media users questioning whether her transformation has come as the result of cosmetic enhancements, or ‘terrible’ makeup.
Within minutes of Demi’s appearance on the couture catwalk – for which she modeled a plunging black satin blouse and large statement earrings – Twitter had been flooded with questions from perplexed users about the Striptease star’s new look.

Her long bell-bottom sleeves covered her hands, while the peplum finish helped to emphasize her curves.
The form-flattering blouse was paired with matching wide-leg trousers, and Demi’s look was completed with some plain black shoes, and some very large statement earrings that dangled down to her armpits.
She also modeled a chunky cuff on her left ear that sparkled under the glare of the spotlights – which also helped to accentuate Demi’s pronounced cheek bones and plump pout.
Her youthful-looking complexion was given an extra boost courtesy of some simply yet chic dewy make-up.
Demi has long been known for her age-defying looks, and has often stunned with her ever-youthful appearance and impressively trim and toned physique, which she has maintained for decades.

Candid: The actress (pictured in July 2020) was plagued by rumors in the early 2000s that she had undergone $250,000 worth of plastic surgery – but she quickly denied the reports
It was once claimed almost 20 years ago that Demi had spent nearly $250,000 on plastic surgery to complete transform her face and body ahead of her appearance in the 2003 movie Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, however she shut down the reports as nothing more than speculation, insisting in 2007 that she had ‘never’ had any cosmetic surgery.
‘I don’t like the idea of having an operation to hold up the aging process – it’s a way to combat your neurosis,’ she said at the time. ‘The scalpel won’t make you happy.’
During a 2019 interview with the Daily Mirror, Demi said that she is ’embracing’ the natural aging process, despite admitting that there were times when she looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize herself.
‘Gravity is going in some directions I’m not fond of. I can look in the mirror occasionally and say, “You’re lying, I don’t look like that,”‘ the Ghost star explained.
‘But I feel for myself it’s about acceptance… embracing it and no longer looking for what’s wrong – just being accepting of everything.’

Demi’s appearance on the Fendi catwalk comes after a low-key few months for the actress, who has spent much of the pandemic hunkering down at home with her family.
The mother-of-three is not a newcomer to the runway having recently starred in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty showcase.

The fashion icon, 47, was one of Jones’s muses for the latest collection, and one of his best friends, and the publication notes that she modelled his clothing at Charleston, in the March 2021 issue.
‘It’s quite a challenge,’ said Antoine Arnault, the LVMH group head of communications and chief executive of Berluti, who has known Mr. Jones since they worked together at Vuitton.
The businessman told the New York Times: ‘Mr. Jones is one of our superstars. When you have a top footballer on your team, you want to let him play to to his full potential.’
Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Raf Simons and Hedi Slimane have all made the leap from menswear to womenswear.
The site reports that Fendi surpassed a billion euros in revenue in 2017 (about $1.2 billion) to become one of the more important brands in the LVMH portfolio.
