Fergie’s new, different look attributed to “new lipstick”


Since I don’t watch American Idol, I missed Fergie’s appearance on the show and the subsequent whispering about what she may or may not have done (lately) to alter her appearance. But from these photos taken at her birthday party in Las Vegas on Friday, I’m perfectly willing to discuss this now. Girl got something (else) done. Fergie has long been rumored to get the occasion nip, tuck, or complete overhaul over the years, and while it’s difficult for me to pinpoint exactly what is new on her face this time, I can say that she looks much different than the last time I paid attention to her. Sure, she’s lost some weight and she’s got a tan. But losing weight and getting some sun doesn’t change your appearance THIS much. Also – has she always been this stacked? I looked up older photos of her boobs, and yes, she’s always had a nice-sized bust, these look… bigger.

There is something else funny, though: the denial. Fergie loves her denial. And she married a man who loves denial too. He loves denial almost as much as he loves bonin’ budget strippers. Josh Duhamel went on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show and claimed that Fergie’s new look is all natural, and actually pulls out this line: “I thought she looked amazing [on American Idol]. It’s amazing. You put a different colour on your lips and, uh, rumours fly. But she’s the same, she’s the same Fergie… I sleep right next to her every night. I like it.” Lipstick? For real? Oh, Josh.

UPDATE: Here’s a photo of Fergie from August 2010. I think it’s something in the eye/eyebrow area:

    I think they sell that lipstick right next to Jack’s magic beans.

  2. Tim Whatley says:

    Brow lift for starters…and I concur about the new boobage. Funny, were I her, it would be all about fixing the busted boxer/pug nose..

  3. kiko says:

    she looks weird..like she is 50 or something.who old is she?

  4. Jacq says:

    Def new boobs and (her) left eyebrow looks like it it is doing it’s own thing, independent of righty. But, what, Kaiser, no old photo for comparison? Y’all do it to Kim K all the time, throw us a bone! Don’t make me google images! :)
    And her hair looks FILTHY! I giver her a big meth-yuck.

  5. Vanessa says:

    Whoa! She looks B A D
    Ok, I am well endowed and they can you make you look matronly, and although she is still far from matronly, they aren’t lookin’ so “perky”! Too big Fergie!
    There is something seriously wrong with the right side of her face. If she got a brow lift, the MD forgot to lift the left side to match the right!
    She looks like she aged 20 years!

  6. gossiplover says:

    I think she laid off the botox in her forehead (her eyebrows look lower) and she stopped plucking them to within an inch of their life. maybe a nose job.

    And her lips look less puffy.

    She looks much less harsh and a lot better!

  7. lisa says:

    I didn’t see American Idol. But I saw a picture of her with Josh, and yes her face was very different. I have always felt for some reason that she was older than we know. Not because of her body; she has an amazing figure, but more because of her neck and hands. These are areas that women can’t really hide the age. I think some people have talked about her face because of her past drug use. But it always looked like her face was doughy. It was different in the pic I saw.

    but something is a bit different.

  8. Me says:

    She has lightened up her look by hair, makeup, and style choice, but she’s definitely had some work done. How about doing a side by side with older photos to help break it down?

  9. maria says:

    She looks nice. Besides whatever she did, the natural makeup and hair suits her well. I’m still worried that her nails would pop off, but the dress, the boobs, the face and the hair look nice. The shoes would be cool with something else.

  10. Teresa__Maria says:

    We have a so-called celebrity in our city who was photographed with enormous lips once. Of course she denied any “treatment”, but said she had used Dior’s new lipgloss and got an allergic reaction.
    “The reaction” is still there 2 months later and she still carries on with the allergy story

  11. CoolWhipLite says:

    Aside from her lips — look at her hot dog fingers and those old lady fingernails.

  12. flourpot says:

    Lipstick in LA costs 50k.

  13. Marjalane says:

    Yeah, she looks nice for a 62 year old barfly. Kids, Take note: This is what meth will do to your looks! No matter how much time and cash you pump into your face and body, you will still look like the dogs dinner. If the other “Peas” hadn’t been on stage with her, I’d have never known it was Fergie last week on Idol. Maybe she and her gross husband have a deal; He’ll attribute her jacked face to lipstick and she’ll believe the strippers are just friends.

  14. Amy says:

    Her eyes look really odd. Eyelift perhaps?

  15. CooCooCatchoo says:

    Her face looks better, softer, than I’ve seen it look in a long time. But she’s too orange, the hair color wipes her out and those ugly fingernails look like bad, thick, pointed cheap tips. The boobs are toooo big – they look fat and heavy, not young and cute. That dress looks like it was made out of safety belts on the top – probably needs straps to hold up those huge, ugly basilicas Lolol! But her shoes are kinda cute – but not with that dress.

  16. Solveig says:

    She definitely looks a lot better than her usual.
    Probably she’s had a mini-lift because her mouth area and cheeks are way less saggy than before. Her eyes too are different, and it’s not just make up.
    Now she should just fix that awful forehead of hers, why doesn’t she laser off some hair? Rita Hayworth did wax her hairline 50 years ago.

  17. DetRiotgirl says:

    Ginger spice? Is that you?

    Someone better call up Geri Halliwell and tell her Fergie took her face!

  18. Rita says:

    Co-sign with @Jacq on needing an old photo.

    I have to give her credit on that rack…that’s a nice one.

    The last time I went in for a tune-up my boobs didn’t look any different when I came out. The mechanic just hooked-up the computer, said “It all looks good”, and charged me $75.

  19. merski says:

    OMG! Is it the eyebrows? Is it the eyelids? Is it the cheeks? Is it the chin? Is it all of the above? Damn, I don’t know but I’m so creeped out right now… o_0

  20. luls says:

    DEF the eyes and eyebrows look different!
    maybe a brow lift?
    also, the skin on her face looks wierder than usual, all of a sudden! (perhaps the fillers/botox were injected unevenly, and this is the result)
    she looks at least 45 in these pics!

    who knows how old this woman really is…

  21. Canuck says:

    She’s definitely had her eyelids done. That dress is horrendous and so are those shoes.

  22. Dana M says:

    I have a friend in the music industry that sang at the Grammys several years ago. She was backstage talking to Fergie. She said Fergie was the sweetest person, very nice and personable. She had a great figure- super tiny. However, by looking at her face up close, my friend could tell she’s lived a “hard life”.

    Guess it was about time for more facial work.

  23. Toe says:

    Now that i see the pics for difference, she looks the same. The boobs are because of the dress type, you can see in the pic with the red dress that the boobs had more place to sit in. Her brows look a tad tinner, different hair color, nose looks the same. I see no difference.

  24. Brittany says:

    Hmmm she definitely changed her eyebrow shape and they’re less harsh. Looks like some Botox on the forehead.. I’m a little hesitant to say anything else right now, bc I don’t think people realize just how different your entire face can look with a drastic eyebrow change.
    But I’m sure there’s other stuff. It’s Hollywood!

  25. Vee says:

    I’d say a brow lift. And, her pink talon nails are disgusting. I think her boobs are the same.

    All in all though, I think she is a great performer and I like her music.

  26. Kayleigh says:

    Bleh, that Kardashian dress in coral and tasseled. Yucky. Also she looks super rough. But I think she used to be hard on drugs so that explains it. Her face looks different but I can’t put my finger on it.

  27. mdf says:

    Either a lift in the eyefold area or eyelid tape.

  28. Megan_J says:

    This woman and I are about the same age and yet she looks ten years older than me. These women who get all of this work done maybe don’t realise that it actually makes them look used up?

  29. malachais says:

    I agree with the eyebrow lift and botoz speculations, however I hope to look as good figure-wise when I’m her age.

  30. Bailey says:

    WTF! I didn’t know it if was her till I read the headline.
    what a joke, that is clearly a new sewn on face.
    lipstick does not lift brows.

  31. Lemon Drops says:

    She’s starting to look like a Real Housewife. Not cute.

  32. mew says:

    Looks like her eye is drooping. Botox caused unfortunate effect? Also somethinig about the brows.

  33. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    At the very least, she’s had fillers. Everyone that overdoes fillers gets that shiny, waxy appearance (Kidman, Kim K, Heidi Montag etc). Whatever she did, she looked MUCH better before.

  34. Jenna says:

    Let’s see – softer face, less crap caked on, bigger bust, hands a bit … odd.

    Any chance she is pregnant? Because all the above sounds rather more knocked up than worked on to me.

  35. bluhare says:

    Lighter hair, check. Tan, check. Makeup blaming, check. Yep, all three are there; she’s had work done.

    Anyone else notice the wonky eye? Her right eyeball is out of whack with the left. Isn’t that a side effect of too much botox? I would have said she’s had an eyelift, rather than something temporary, but with the wonky eye I’m not sure. Her hair is off her face on the other side, and semi covering the side of her eye on the wonky side. Plus the boobs are huge, which doesn’t happen when you lose weight, or it sure as hell doesn’t happen when I lose weight or else I might be a lot smaller than I am now!

    And I spent way too much time looking at that photo.

  36. Izzy says:

    I didn’t know she wears lipstick in the cheeks and eyebrows too… awkward.

  37. brin says:

    Maybe the same night he was sleeping with the stripper she got all the work done on her face.

  38. Mrs. Odie 2 says:

    I agree it’s definitely a brow lift. The more open eye is a dead giveaway. It’s a good job, though.

  39. Jenna says:

    She used to be addicted to meth. Hell, she deserves to get her face fixed after living through that mess.

  40. Evelyn says:

    She aged herself by about 15 years. 15 very lumpy years

  41. devilgirl says:

    If she did or didn’t get something done, does it matter?

  42. Bedge says:

    It’s something in the cheek area. Its all looking to chiseled in that domain.

  43. Saskia says:

    You guys, seriously. Fergie did a lot of meth (like, for realsies, A LOT OF METH) and that stuff is HARD on a chick’s face. Girlfriend is probably stuffed like a pork loin with fillers, because if she wasn’t then she’d look like a resurrected mummy (Google before/after pics of people who did meth; they’re wrinkled like raisins). Frankly, it’s amazing she has enough teeth left on which to glue some nice veneers. She’s not even 40 but she’ll need to keep on keepin’ on with the fillers or she’ll end up with that deflated balloon, saggy baggy elephant look. Meth is rough, kids. Cut the girl some slack.

    Also, I strongly suspect that this new change in her facescape is due mostly to her finally easing up on the brow waxing. Her brows are a little softer now, a little less like a cross between Cruella de Vil and a stripper. Definitely a step in the right direction.

    Of course, I’m totally biased. I’ve been fond of Fergie’s brand of crazy since way back in the “Kids, Incorporated” days.

  44. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @brin, or Josh’s penchant for strippers lead her to get the huge tatas?

  45. MyCatLoves TV says:

    One of Fergie’s most striking (?) features was her squinty eyes. One would think that getting some lift in that area would give her some youth but it really didn’t. She doesn’t look like herself anymore and that’s never good. (Can anyone say Kenny Rogers?)

    P.S. Am I the only one who hates those shoes with that dress?

  46. Kim says:

    fergie is actually 36 years old. she and i went to the same elementary, middle school, and high school. she has had those big boogs for as long as i can remember. and this may be annoying to you all but she was very nice to everyone.

  47. Disbelieving says:


    Yes, hating the shoes and dress. Like a faded out Miami Dolphins/Howard Johnson’s color palette.

  48. HRH says:

    I think the eyebrows are a bit fuller, but I can’t really see any other difference. I’m usually the first person to call someone out for ps.

  49. Enn says:

    @Jenna and Tess, I’m thinking knocked up too. Looks like prego face puff and swollen boobs.

  50. Silver says:

    Its the eyes, definitely something with the eyes. They seem “bigger” in the new photos. I don’t know if I would have recognized her without a header for the picture (I’m not that familiar with her to start anyways).

  51. Stephanie says:

    I like the “before” shot much better. Would it kill any of these Hollywood women to leave their damn faces alone!!!

  52. Days after Christmas says:

    The shape of her claws, I mean nails, scares me. Isn’t anyone else disturbed?

  53. bagladey says:

    Definitely a brow lift, and probably upper eyelid lift and tightening of her jaw line.

  54. Eden says:

    The blond woman in the white dress on Idol singing with the Black Eyed Peas was FERGIE????
    There’s no way it was her and if so, she looked like a completely different person. Completely.
    Someone who saw Idol please weigh in because I was convinced they got another woman to sing that night.
    If it was Fergie she looked about 25 years old and gorgeous.
    Totally different than the picture above.

  55. Ms Lee says:

    yep looks like ginger spice alrite.

  56. dim says:

    I think its just a case of bad makeup and bad tanning. Her face looks the same to me, just harder from the angles the makeup/sweat sheen all over her is causing.

  57. sandy says:

    eyes, cheeks, fillers. botox, people kept talking about she was not attractive so she enhanced, learn to love yourself from within first fergie, accept yourself, some men are just simply going to cheat.

  58. So-and-so says:

    What’s all this ‘USED to do meth’ business? Maybe she put down the meth pipe, but she was still hitting the bottle hard enough to URINATE ON HERSELF on stage and get thrown off an airplane a few years back, and booze ages a person,pretty badly, as well. So if she keeps guzzling, she’ll need to keep getting work done, and the work she’s getting done isn’t very good, obviously. I haven’t seen terrain as rough and hilly as her face since I was in West Virginia.

  59. zxc says:

    If Xtina looks bad… I don’t know what to say about Fergie.

  60. poodlemom says:

    What is it about Hollywood that makes all of these beatiful women carve up their faces??? Fergie looked so nice about five surgeries ago. Now…she is frightening! Is it insecurity? Is it because her husband bones all of these fugly women? I feel so sorry for her! She can really sing, and is fantastic live. But the messing with her face and boobs has got to stop! And why is she so afraid to have a baby?

  61. ol cranky says:

    there’s something really off about the top right side of her face, especially around the eyebrows and eyes. Art of the problem with the right eye is a bit of a funky droop (which looks extra bad next to the over lifted eyebrow). I’m guessing she had BOTOX for crows feet and ptosis (drooping eyelid) is a known side effect of BOTOX.

  62. Matt says:

    It looks like a subtle eye/eybrow lift to me. And her boobs do look different.

  63. Isa says:

    Her boobs gross me out. They may look bigger because they’re stuffed into that dress. They’ve got no where to go but up!

    Her face looks longer, not sure what she had done. But I still think she should move her hairline back a little. Or at least stop with the center part it emphasises her caveman forehead.

    Okay, say something nice…she has a great voice!

  64. lucy2 says:

    Definitely something around the eyes.
    Great choice of before photo, since the lipstick shade is so similar! And yet she looks different…

  65. Amanda G says:

    It doesn’t matter what she does…she will always be a butterface.

  66. lola lola says:

    Yeah, lipstick. Riiiiiiiiiight.

    p.s. Her boobs are really grossing me out.

  67. jen says:

    She looks like she’s trying to look more “generic” so to speak. If she gets a nose job, she risks her voice, but she looks more all-american without that beady-eye crack whore look. Looks like something she might do if she were looking to get more into the acting thing…

  68. serena says:

    Yeah, it’s in the eyes area. It’s a pity, she looked way more beautiful before. Now she just has bigger eyes with a stunned expression and she looks older.

  69. Cali says:

    She really did something with the forehead area, I couldn’t tell on A.I. but now I see and don’t like he results 0_o

  70. lrm says:

    you know, RDJ is the only recovering addict i know who doesn’t have that haggard look.
    it’s the aura/energy field…it’s hard to clean that up.
    but RDJ hits up the tonic/herb bars in LA and carries his homeopathic kit wherever he goes…and he’s an avid martial artist…
    i dont know probably does yoga or something too….
    but dude looks GOOD and has almost not aged.
    Fergie, on the other hand, just keeps getitng surgery, zero effort into her personal energy and internal environment IMO. Needs to clean up her game, change her diet, go check out some holistic approaches that literally can and do change your look working with the energetics first.

    I know, i sound woo-woo, but i’m serious….she could look better, although she is still unfortunate looking no matter what.
    but that haggard barfly thing needs hardcore lifestyle change in order to ‘fix’. No more surgical enhancements.

    RDJ is proof that you can recover and clean up and not look like a recovering addict for the rest.of.your.life.

  71. Jag says:

    Looks like eyebrow lift, and not a symmetrical one, and then more added to the cleavage. She should just stop now, before she can’t go back. I do like that shade lipstick on her, but come on Josh, we’re not stupid enough to believe that she didn’t have work done. lol

  72. anti says:

    there is definitely something up with some sort of botch on one eye in particular. she’s trying to cover it with her hair.

  73. Val says:

    Salmon dress, fuschia nails, pale green shoes. My friends would laugh at me if I went out in that combo.

  74. kat says:

    Looking at her eyelids, it looks like she’s had a stroke that screwed up one side of her face.

  75. TeeTee says:

    she needed fillers galore, her previous meth use did not help her look.

    she admitted to past meth use in an interview.

  76. jemshoes says:

    Fergie is starting to look like the Linda Hamilton from the “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” era … spooky! Her eyes look different, wider, and it’s not just coloured contact lenses and good eye makeup! ;)

    Lipstick! If *only* it could be this easy and affordable!

  77. justme says:

    The woman has a head on her like a dropped pie there is no getting around it no matter what she does she will always have the dropped pie look .

  78. Newbie says:

    Uh. If the lipstick contains both a needle and a scalpel, then yes. It’s all lipstick.

  79. Nikki says:

    I don’t care if she used to be addicted to meth or if she is nice, she’s just plain nasty looking and I hate the way she lies about having so much obvious plastic surgery. I have so much more respect for people who just came out and admit it. Her face is a jacked-up mess and her forehead is so tiny because she’s had multiple face-lifts. Her style is always cheap and trashy-looking too. And the Black-Eyed Peas pretty much took a nosedive into mainstream garbage music as soon as she joined them- before that, they were actually a good hip-hip group with credibility; now they just make crap pop/”rap”/dance music that’s embarrassingly bad, anybody who actually listens to good hip-hop or funk music will tell you so. Good riddance.

  80. Kloops says:

    Botox. That’s all I see different. I dont watch Idol so I don’t know what she looked like in “action” but I think she looks fine here. Whatever she’s had done is quite subtle, in my opinion.

  81. ladida says:

    wow..there are some really mean people here.

  82. she looks different for one. second of all – it’s just plain dumb to try and say it’s new lipstick colour. only makes us pay attention to this more. lipstick? seriously? why try and come up with excuses at all? just say she didn’t do anything IF someone asks. coming up with excuses only makes us sure she did something.

  83. Caz says:

    I think she looks quite good – in that Hwood overdone, not ageing naturally kind of way. I like her anyway and the BEP would be zip without her. Even Jennifer Aniston is starting to look old now in comparison to what she used to look like and she spends a $$$$$ to look the way she does. I’m 40 and look nowhere near as old as Fergie let alone Jen and neither do my friends. Ladies if you party really really hard it always shows up on your face. Maybe not now but at some point it does.

  84. Roo says:

    Whatever, she’s always looked like she’s having an epic allergic reaction. I guess that’s just what plastic surgey rejection looks like.

  85. Quest says:

    I know she had some lady lumps but not that much. There are differences in her facial features – a side by side before and after photo will surely tell.

  86. Brittney says:

    She has looked plastic for so long that it’s hard for me to remember if she was ever famous with her “real” face. She’s honestly got one of the most obviously jacked-up faces in the business, in my opinion, and I don’t understand how anyone could find her attractive.

    I (and millions more) enjoy her music, and she’s got a great (enhanced) body, so why on Earth would she continue down this path of literal destruction? Why does no one tell these women they’re paying a fortune to ruin their looks, not improve them?!

  87. Brittney says:

    Also, for those of you interested in a true “before” shot, search for Wild Orchid (Kids Inc was too long ago for comparison). She was beautiful in that group, and it was right before her meth addiction took off. I agree that some of the surgery may have been to cover up the drug damage… but it wasn’t done very well. Looking at pictures of Fergie in her 20s just makes me sad. She could still be so beautiful now… but at least she got her career back.

    Here’s one example: http://crushable.com/entertainment/fergie-wild-orchid-photos/

  88. Maritza says:

    She looks pretty but I do agree that she had a bad brow lift and those pointy nails are old granny style.She definitely had her boobs done too.

  89. fabgrrl says:

    This woman gets so much hate. Yeah, her face isn’t pretty, but she isn’t a gargolye. Plus, she has a slammin’ body that she works hard for and likes to show off. Good on her. She always seems pleasant and I’ve never heard anything bad about her. Sure, she used to do meth, and then there is that infamous pee leaking incident. But really, what has she done to anybody? If her husband screws around on her and she gets cosmetic surgery now and then, so what? Thats her business.

  90. RHONYC says:

    all those years of dancing have been rough on her feet. yikes!

    that orange isn’t doing what she wants to her skin. less tan i think. :-(

  91. Michelle says:

    OMG Those Nails! Looks to me like she had some filler in her lips, as well as her cheeks, botox will do that to your eyebrows. The boobs look bigger.

  92. original kate says:

    she’s only 35? holy crap, she needs to stop with the face messin’.

  93. dahlia1947 says:

    She got a nose job! She had a bump on the bridge and the tip was longer! It looks good.

    somebody mentioned here that she had a meth addiction? I always wondered why her face looked weird. I’ve seen some really, really bad meth faces so I’m glad she stopped when she did.

    She looks refreshed here! Really good!

  94. TXCinderella says:

    These people must think we are stupid. It’s so obvious that she had work done. Duh!

  95. Hilda says:

    Wait! Putting a new shade of lipstick on your boobs make them ginormous? I think she had to do a lot of maintenance since her hubby seems to like hookers. I guess you fix yourself up or he continues to stray.

  96. Andrea says:

    Somethin’ ain’t right. I just can’t figure out if she is pretty or not. One pic, she is pretty and then in another she is terrible. It’s like that episode of Seinfeld when he dated the “two faced” girl who was pretty in certain lighting and ugly in others. and yes, file down those claws!

  97. SassyOne says:

    BROW LIFT!!!!!!!!

    And filler face.

  98. Kim says:

    Eye & brow lift. Go back and look at pics from just a few months ago and youll see she had hooded upper eye lids. I think her eye job looks good but she has so much filler in her face it looks like she has marshmallows stuffed under her skin! To much filler between her brows is making her look like a cave man.

  99. ADS says:

    Total lol @ Leelee. I guess I’ll be the odd one out and say she hasn’t ever looked so good. Though I don’t actually know if this is a good thing.

  100. Francesca says:

    She’s moving into CarrotTop territory with all the face work…

    It’s too much and it’s getting scary.

  101. ordinarygirl86 says:

    She looks like a caveman and I LOVE Fergie- but this face fuckery is RE-DAMN-DICULOUS!

  102. lover not a fighter says:

    Ouch, Future Celebrity Gossip has sounded the death rattle on this fake relationship.

    They are saying his dumb ass is going to get caught out cheating again & she will dumb his sorry arse, finally.

    I’m surprised this guy’s “bits” don’t have a twitter of their own, he seems to get around enough.

    Peace out

  103. loopygorilla says:

    Get the new Meth look with this new rimmel london lipstick.

    it goes on shine and wont smudge.

  104. Bells says:

    I remember seeing her on that show Kids Inc. when it was on the Disney Channel. That was in 1989! Fergie is only 2 or so years older than me and with ths new look she has going on, she looks older than I do! It’s her eyes, that’s what’s different one hangs lower than the other as if it was some sort of eye lift gone sour. She’s not exactly ugly but she’s not exactly pretty either. She just doesn’t have the sultry eyes she used to have, seriously now they look…weird. Whatever floats her boat I guess…

  105. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to take note of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as people consider issues that they plainly don’t recognize about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , other people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks

  106. You really make it appear so easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be actually something which I believe I’d by no means understand. It sort of feels too complicated and very huge for me. I’m looking ahead on your subsequent submit, I will try to get the grasp of it!

  107. Yikes says:

    What is up with her look. Her shoe colour, dress colour and nail colour do NOT mix. As for her face….
