The future of fashion is truly here as top designer Dolce and Gabbana chose to shun models at their catwalk show, in favor of drones to show off their new collection of bags.
The innovative show took place in Milan and guests were asked to turn off their wifi as women and men in lab coats walked alongside the drones, controlling them as they steadily moved down the runway, showcasing the latest accessories.
At least eight quadcopter drones were used in the presentation and each carried a large, fake gemstone atop of them, to look a bit more glamorous. Attendees were in awe of the display as nothing has ever been done like this at a world-renowned fashion week, and the only other time this was achieved was in 2015, as clothing company Betabrand used drones to model its clothing in Silicon Valley.
At the time, GQ slammed the concept and stated “”Seriously, tech bros. Stay in your lane, we’ll stay in ours.” However, it seems that Dolce and Gabbana are jumping on the technology bandwagon and embracing it in their fashion shows.
However, ensuring that the presentation worked, the fashion show was reportedly delayed by 45 minutes as the drones were throughly tried and tested. Needless to say, when the lights came on and all was revealed, viewers were stunned as the models they expected to come out didn’t turn up and instead, designer bags began flying down the runway.
While many people feared that the world was turning to technology and disregarding the work of people, the last industry that people expected it to happen in was fashion.
Nevertheless, the Dolce and Gabbana show was not all drones, and after the bags were showcased, real models started strutting down the Milan runway in their newest, chic collection.
The Most Expensive Transformations in Hollywood
Since the very beginnings of Hollywood, stars have been using surgical procedures to enhance their beauty. Decades later, non-invasive procedures like Botox, laser treatments, and filler mean that basically, no celebrity face goes untouched. However, some celebs embrace the transformative powers of cosmetic surgery more than others. These stars have paid megabucks to enhance their beauty, some with better results than others.
Cher – $750,000
The Goddess of Pop has always been into transformations, both surgically and artistically. Cher has never shied away from her cosmetic procedures, and still looks great in her 70s.
Overall, Cher estimates that she’s spent around $750,000 on cosmetic procedures. Considering many surgeries need to be topped up over the years, it’s no surprise that Cher’s beauty maintenance bill is high. The singer and actress has had eyelid surgeries, rhinoplasties, a chest augmentation, a facelift, dental surgery, and regular Botox.
Iggy Azalea – $40,000
Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has undergone quite a transformation since first appearing on the music scene. The star has spoken about her chest augmentation and nose job, and sources speculate she has also had a chin implant, lip fillers, and a brow lift.
The star told Ellen DeGeneres that she didn’t “need” surgery, but that “it’s a personal choice.” She said, “Anybody, man or woman, they should be able to make an informed decision, and if you want to change something, then that’s up to you.”
Khloé Kardashian – $100,000
It’s no surprise that the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are fans of changing their appearance. Rumors of butt implants and lip fillers have always swirled around the siblings, but it’s unclear exactly what procedures they’ve had. In Khloé’s case, sources speculate the star has undergone liposuction or had butt injections.
Judging by recent snaps of the star, it looks like KoKo has had some facial cosmetic surgery. She has previously said that “plastic surgery should be viewed almost like makeup […] and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.”
Suzanne Somers – $20,000
Known for playing Chrissy Snow on Three’s Company, Suzanne Somers shocked audiences when she underwent plastic surgery in 2010. It’s thought that the star had a stem-cell facelift, which isn’t FDA approved. At the time, while on TV talk shows, her face appeared puffy and bumpy.
Since then Somers is rumored to have had more procedures — including rhinoplasties, lip injections, eyelid lifts, a chest augmentation, and Botox. Now in her 70s, the star is an advocate of a controversial hormone replacement therapy.
Tara Reid – $30,000
Also famous for her sub-par surgery is actress Tara Reid. The 00s star was in a string of hit movies, but poor plastic surgeries ended up stalling her career. Tara Reid had chest augmentation, liposuction, and body contouring in 2004, and the botched results ended up all over the tabloids.
Tara Reid has explained that her early cosmetic surgeries prevented her from landing roles. Thankfully, the damage has since been corrected, and the actress has returned to our screens.
Kris Jenner – $1 Million
It’s no surprise that momager to the Kardashian-Jenner crew has had plenty of plastic surgeries. Indeed, viewers of the family’s hit show have watched Kris Jenner undergo facelifts just in time for special family occasions.
It’s estimated that Kris Jenner has spent around a million bucks on altering her appearance. The star had chest augmentation in the ’80s, and then had her implants adjusted later. Like her daughters, Jenner does deny having a nose job, though she has had dental surgeries and Botox.
Nicki Minaj – $40,000
It’s clear to most people that rapper Nicki Minaj has undergone several surgical transformations. However, the star denies having ever surgically altered her face, putting her sharp nose down to contouring.
It’s thought that Nicki Minaj has had fat transferred to the side of her hips in order to make her waist look slimmer, and her backside bigger. It’s also speculated that the star has had butt implants, a chest augmentation, fillers, and Botox. The “Anaconda” singer has also been accused of doing skin lightening procedures.
Pete Burns – $300,000
“Dead or Alive” singer Pete Burns is a tragic casualty of excessive plastic surgeries. The singer is estimated to have had around 300 surgeries in total, including many corrective procedures. Unfortunately, this led to the “You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)” singer having “hissing” and pussy skin.
Initially, Pete Burns was seeking “physical perfection” with his cosmetic surgeries. Eventually, he commented about himself, “I’ve got staples, nuts, bolts, stitches, the whole lot. I’m Frankenstein.” Sadly, Pete Burns passed away in 2016, at 57.
Meg Ryan – $30,000
Meg Ryan is another actress whose career ultimately suffered as a result of her cosmetic surgeries. It’s unclear exactly what procedures the actress has had, but sources speculate that she had fat or filler transferred into her cheeks.
For this reason, the actress’s eyes look smaller, making her less recognizable overall. It’s also thought that Meg Ryan has had a nose job, lip fillers, Botox, and a facelift. Overall, the bill for these types of procedures is way over $30,000.
Megan Fox – $60,000
It’s perhaps surprising that Megan Fox has undergone significant surgical procedures. However, it’s a good reminder that even “natural” looking Hollywood beauties have spent considerable cash on maintaining their good looks.
Altogether, it’s thought that the actress has had three nose jobs, a chest augmentation, laser skin resurfacing, cheek fillers, lip injections, an eyelid lift, and Botox. Apparently, Megan Fox’s cosmetic alterations and dental surgeries cost her around $60,000. However, she’s never spoken about any of her cosmetic procedures.
Janice Dickinson – $40,000
The self-proclaimed world’s first supermodel, Janice Dickinson, has also splashed her cash on several surgeries. The model has spoken openly about her various procedures — including a facelift, a browlift, a tummy tuck, chest augmentations, and facial fillers.
In fact, Janice Dickenson appeared on plastic surgery show Botched in order to have her chest implants fixed. Unsurprisingly, living life in the public eye usually leads people to chase the fountain of youth. This is especially true in an industry like modeling.
Joan Rivers – $100,000
Pioneering comedian Joan Rivers was well known for her plastic surgery. In fact, when most people think of celebrities and plastic surgeries, it’s the loudmouth funny woman they think of. According to the comedian, she underwent over 300 procedures during her life. Indeed, the star passed away following complications during throat surgery.
Sadly, Joan Rivers suffered from low esteem and used plastic surgery as a way of trying to feel better about herself. Indeed, this is all too common in Hollywood.
NeNe Leakes – $25,000
When it comes to reality TV stars, there’s usually a correlation between wealth and plastic surgery. In other words, when people get richer, they tend to turn to the nearest cosmetic surgeon. That’s what happened with Real Housewives of Atlanta star, NeNe Leakes.
When she started on the show, Ms. Leakes was a regular-looking person. However, the celeb has since admitted to chest augmentations, liposuction, rhinoplasty, dental surgery, and Botox. It’s estimated that NeNe spent around $25,000 on her celebrity look.
Courtney Love – $25,000
Rocker Courtney Love has commented that she would never have had a career without having a nose job. The Hole frontwoman has been open about her cosmetic procedures, saying she doesn’t regret the rhinoplasty at all.
As well as her early nose job, it’s reported that Courtney Love has had chest augmentations, fillers, and lip injections. Indeed, the singer’s appearance has changed quite a bit, at times making her unrecognizable. Altogether, it’s thought that the musician has spent approximately $25,000 on surgeries.
Cardi B – $50,000
Rapper Cardi B was strategic about her plastic surgeries. The former dancer saved up her tips to surgically enhance her body, and the rest is history. Initially, the celeb had a chest augmentation and butt implants. She has since had another chest augmentation, liposuction, and dental surgery.
The “WAP” singer isn’t shy when it comes to cosmetic procedures, and has said, “I do whatever I want with my body.” However, after undergoing some complications during surgery, the star has said she’s finished.
Kylie Jenner – $2 Million
Another celebrity whose career skyrocketed as a result of cosmetic surgery is Kylie Jenner. The youngest Kardashian-Jenner sibling got lip filler as a teen, and created a massive trend at the same time.
Since her initial procedure, Kylie Jenner has kept transforming. It’s speculated that the star has had a nose job, cheek implants, a chest augmentation, butt implants, a chin lift, dental surgery, and an eye lift. Just like the rest of her siblings, Kylie is pretty coy when it comes to admitting what work she’s had.
Sharon Osbourne – $250,000
Sharon Osbourne was Ozzy Osbourne’s girlfriend and manager, but she didn’t feel pretty enough to be with a rock star. As a result, she turned to cosmetic surgery. Since the ’70s, the TV personality has had arm and leg lifts, liposuction, a gastric bypass, rhinoplasties, facelifts, and Botox. It’s thought that the celeb has spent around $250,000 on transforming her appearance.
Speaking about her procedures, Osbourne has said there isn’t much of her body not “tweaked, stretched, peeled, lasered, veneered, enhanced or removed altogether.”
Heidi Montag – $1 Million
When reality star Heidi Montag had a whopping 10 cosmetic procedures in one day, the world was aghast. The blonde celeb debuted her total body makeover in 2010, and appeared on basically every magazine cover.
As part of her dramatic transformation, Montag had an eyebrow lift, a chest augmentation, cheek implants, and a chin reduction. Altogether, the star spent around $1 million! Heidi Montag has admitted that she regrets spending so much on the procedures.
Dolly Parton – $250,000
Another famous plastic surgery fan is Dolly Parton. The star grew up in the Appalachian mountains, and used to marvel at a local woman with blonde hair, long nails, and lipstick. Over the years, Dolly has transformed herself into a blonde bombshell, commenting, “You’d be surprised how much it costs to look this cheap.”
Dolly Parton has had several chest augmentations, facelifts, liposuction, nose jobs, eyelid surgeries, and brow lifts. She quips, “If I see something saggin,’ baggin,’ or draggin,’ I’m gone have it nipped, tucked, or sucked!”
Donatella Versace – $50,000
Another woman who isn’t scared of not-so-natural beauty is Donatella Versace. In fact, the fashion designer has said, “I do not believe in totally natural for women.” That’s clear!
It’s not known exactly what Versace has had done over the years, though it’s thought she’s had Botox, fillers, laser treatments, a brow lift, and a facelift. Despite the speculation, most sources agree that the fashion icon has never had anything done to her nose. Weirdly, we’re impressed!
Mickey Rourke – $40,000
Also famous for his rather dramatic appearance is actor Mickey Rourke. The star was initially praised for his good looks, but sought out surgery because of his boxing career. The actor claims that his face was damaged from fighting, and that he went to the wrong surgeon to fix it.
Altogether, Mickey Rourke has had six facelifts and a nose job. It’s been speculated that the star has also had hair transplants… and too much Botox
Kim Kardashian – $2 Million
Sure, there’s a couple of decades between these pictures of Kim Kardashian. However, she arguably looks more like her natural self than her siblings, Kylie and Khloé. Though Kim K did get her butt X-rayed to prove she had no implants, the star has definitely had lots of procedures.
It’s estimated that KiKi has had a chest augmentation, a nose job, liposuction, a lifted hairline, Botox, a butt lift, a tummy tuck, a chin augmentation, lip fillers, and cheek implants. Phew!
Michael Jackson – $1 Million
Here’s another casualty of excessive plastic surgery — Prince of Pop, Michael Jackson. The star lived with a skin condition, vitiligo, which caused patches of his skin to lose their pigmentation. As a result, and for other reasons, the star lightened his skin.
It’s thought that Michael Jackson had a forehead lift, cheekbone surgery, lip surgery, and rhinoplasties. The star also had a dimple added to his chin, received regular injections of filler, and had tattooed lips, eyebrows, and eyeliner.
Jane Fonda – $70,000
Again, there are decades between these two shots, but actress Jane Fonda famously used surgery to retain her youth. In fact, the star has said, “People looked older back then. I wish I were brave enough to not do plastic surgery but I think I bought myself a decade.”
Jane Fonda has admitted to having chest augmentations, facelifts, an eye lift, and work done to her jawline. In 2020, at the age of 82, actress Jane Fonda declared that she was giving up plastic surgery.
Demi Moore – $50,000
Most people are more familiar with actress Demi Moore looking like something in between these two images. After rising to fame, the star spent around half a million dollars on facelifts, Botox, chest implants, and laser treatments. In fact, she specifically had wrinkles lasered off her knees.
Like Jane Fonda, Moore feels her procedures helped her career. More recently, the actress shocked onlookers when she walked in Paris Fashion Week looking unlike herself.
Caitlyn Jenner – $4 Million
Caitlyn Jenner’s transformation cost $4 million overall, with $81,000 being spent on surgeries and a whopping $10,000 spent on her chest alone. In terms of Caitlyn’s face, it’s believed that she’s had botox, a brow lift, cheek implants, and her jaw softened and reshaped, among other procedures.
It’s not just about the money, though… According to reports, Jenner’s facial feminization surgery took a total of 10 hours! As it turns out, Caitlyn suffered a panic attack after seeing her new face.
Rumer Willis – $100,000
Rumer Willis hasn’t outwardly exposed the cost of her procedures, but experts theorize that the actress’s new look set her back $100,000. It’s believed that Rumer has had botox, rhinoplasty, lip injections, and her jawline shaved down.
When asked about cosmetic surgery, Willis has said, “If I choose to do something to myself, it’s because I’ve thought about it. And if it’s going to make me feel better, I won’t be ashamed of the choices that I make.”
Sir Tom Jones – $46,000
Sir Tom Jones has been open about the $46,000 worth of surgeries he’s had and the fact that he can’t get any more. After having a nose job, botox, and several facelifts, Tom was advised to refrain from more procedures.
The singer explained, “I went to see a plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, and he said, ‘You’ve got to be careful with your lower eyes.’ He told me, ‘Your eyes will be bloody popping.’ He said I should try to look as natural as I can.”
David Gest – $20,000
David Gest blames fellow plastic surgery lover Michael Jackson for his $20,000 worth of procedures. David explains that it started with a simple nose job (per Michael’s recommendation), but all went downhill from there.
“I went for it in grand style—even though I have a huge ego I have always felt I was never good-looking—so I got a nose job, cheekbone implants, a second nose job, even bigger cheek implants, and the removal of those cheek implants when I ended up looking like a chipmunk!”
Janet Jackson – $6,000-$12,000
Janet Jackson has only ever admitted to a nose job, which typically costs between $6,000-$12,000, but many people believe she’s had much more work done. Experts say that Janet appears to have had eyelid surgery and cheek implants, among others.
However, Jackson insists that her plumper cheeks are the result of making sure she doesn’t get too thin. She claims that she wants to age gracefully, albeit with a bit of “zhuzh.”
La Toya Jackson – Unknown
La Toya Jackson hasn’t revealed the exact price of the work she’s had done, but one can speculate, and the number isn’t low… The singer has had eight procedures, including multiple nose jobs, an eyebrow lift, liposuction, a facelift, and breast augmentation.
Unfortunately, Jackson’s nose jobs created breathing problems for her as the procedure got more and more difficult to perform. With an estimated net worth of $4 million, we think it’s safe to say that La Toya can afford to get as many procedures as she wants.
Farrah Abraham – $21,000
Farrah Abraham has spent roughly $21,000 over the years. She’s had three chest augmentations (the third was done to cover complications from the second one), chin implants (which she later had removed), a nose job, and a well-documented rejuvenation of her privates.
Does the Teen Mom star regret it? Not exactly… “I regret not getting more. I think it’s good. […] I just want to seem youthful and plump and be happy.”
Courteney Cox – Unknown
While Courteney Cox hasn’t revealed exactly how much she has spent on her surgeries, she’s confessed that she regrets them. The actress has had botox and fillers (which she’s since dissolved), as well as other procedures.
Courteney explained that such treatments are a slippery slope, as you get just a few at a time, think they’re not too noticeable, and then think you need more. According to Cox, you only ever realize it’s too much when it’s far too much and too late to fix it.
Priscilla Presley – Unknown
We don’t know exactly how much Priscilla Presley spent on her procedures, but we do know that she found herself in the unfortunate situation of needing to spend more money on more treatments to fix a botched job.
Priscilla went to a hack plastic surgeon (who’s now in prison) and found herself completely unrecognizable afterward. So, she tried to fix it by getting more procedures done, which drove up her plastic surgery bill quite a bit.
Kaley Cuoco – $12,000
Kaley Cuoco has no problem talking openly about her procedures, which cost her roughly $12,000. The actress has had a nose job, fillers, and chest augmentation, the latter of which she called the best thing she’s ever done.
Although she’s happy to talk about the work she’s had done, Kaley wants to clarify that she’s only ever undergone procedures for herself. “I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else. But if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing,” she said.
John Travolta – $10,000-$50,000
John Travolta hasn’t revealed the price of his plastic surgeries to the public, but it is known that he’s had hair transplants, which cost between $10,000-$50,000.
Clearly, Travolta has spent at least that much on his appearance, and that’s not even including the facelift, botox, and injections he’s had. While Travolta has never outwardly said he’s had work done, one only needs to look at his photos to know the truth.
Pamela Anderson – Unknown
Pamela Anderson couldn’t even bother to deny her chest augmentation, but she did choose to keep the price a secret. However, the actress regretted the decision and got them removed, only to regret that and have them implanted again. So, that’s at least three chest augmentation surgeries she’s paid for.
On top of that, she’s had a facelift, rhinoplasty, injectables, and botox, the latter of which she regrets. Pamela explained, “I felt like my eyes sunk into my head so far that I didn’t look like me anymore!”
Renée Zellweger – Unknown
Renée Zellweger has adamantly denied getting any work done, but experts and nonexperts alike agree that a quick glance at the actress’s face tells a different story. One plastic surgeon, Dr. Obaid Chaudhry, insists, “Renée’s cheeks look fuller and her jawline more defined.”
“She likely received a fat transfer to the face with a neck lift and buccal fat removal, which helps to accentuate the curves of the lower face and cheek.” Meanwhile, Zellweger insists that her new look is due to lifestyle changes.
Wendy Williams – $40,000
Wendy Williams loves her procedures and has no problem sharing her various treatments – and the collective $40,000 price tag – with her fans. She’s had a chest augmentation, liposuctions, tummy tuck, and botox, just to name a few.
When she was criticized for getting so much work done, Wendy made it clear that she thinks anyone would do the same in her position. “If I gave you $10,000 and said you can use my doctor, you’d do it,” she said.
Sandra Bullock – Unknown
Sandra Bullock is yet another celebrity who denies having had plastic surgery, despite looking completely different in recent years.
Sandra explained, “This past Oscars I was sick and had allergies, but I was like, ‘I’m just going to go.’ It’s part of my job, and I’m happy to be there. Then the next day they were saying, ‘Oh, she has cheek fillers and implants.’” That’s fair enough, but that doesn’t explain her new appearance every day for the past few years.
Blac Chyna – $200,000
When Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian went through a messy public split, he claimed he had spent $100,000 on plastic surgery for his ex-fiancé. Indeed, there’s no question that the celeb has had several cosmetic procedures.
It’s speculated that Blac Chyna has had cheek filler, scalp advancement treatments (which bring the hairline forward), butt injections, a nose job, eyelid surgery, lip filler, chest augmentations, and liposuction. The star certainly isn’t scared of transformations, and doesn’t seem to care about the cost.
Jocelyn Wildenstein – $6.7 Million
Now, here’s a really infamous case of cosmetic surgery addiction. This is Jocelyn Wildenstein, a socialite who married a billionaire. Wildenstein is more commonly known as the “Cat Woman” and apparently got surgeries to look like a cat because her husband loved big cats…
When Jocelyn and her husband eventually split, the court ordered her to not spend any of her alimony on cosmetic procedures. Alas, that didn’t seem to stop her. Plus, she landed over $2 billion in the split!
Lil’ Kim – $25,000
Another star that ended up splashing out on skin lightening is legendary rapper Lil’ Kim. After a successful hip-hop career, the celeb disappeared and then came back with a totally different look. Lil’ Kim had cheek implants, lip filler, nose jobs, liposuction, and chest implants.
But, that wasn’t the end. Later, the rapper posted a picture on her Instagram, showing her much lighter skin. Sadly, the star also suffers from low self-esteem, saying, “All my life men have told me I wasn’t pretty enough.”
Kim Zolciak-Biermann – $25,000
Here’s another Real Housewife that went down the plastic surgery route in order to maintain her career. When she first appeared on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kim Zolciak looked like a regular person (wearing a wig). As the years passed by, the star — and her daughters — started to look more and more like Barbie.
The reality star has admitted to having chest augmentation and a tummy tuck, but denies having any facial surgeries done. However, Kim has clearly had regular Botox and lip fillers.
Barry Manilow – $70,000
Last but not least is iconic performer Barry Manilow. The “Copacabana” singer had a facelift in 2003, and a rhinoplasty to repair his broken nose. However, celebs regularly give other medical excuses for their cosmetic procedures, so we’re not so sure we believe that one.
Altogether, it’s thought that Barry Manilow has also had cheek implants and eyelid surgery. We have to say that he’s looking pretty good, which is what you would expect when you spend $70,000 on surgeries!
