George Clooney was “secretly horrified” with Stacy Keibler’s early style

Stacy Keibler

The Mail got their hands on these vintage Stacy Keibler photos a few days ago. I don’t really understand why the photos are particularly newsworthy, but that being said, I enjoyed looking at a pre-George Clooney version of Stacy. I never paid any attention to her before she became George’s official piece. Her face has changed since whenever these pics were taken (some say 2008-ish). Nose job? But something small… not a major overhaul at all. It seems like they just narrowed her nose a little bit, and yes, I do think she got implants after this shoot, which is too bad because her girls are a nice size in these photos. Other than that, it’s just a difference in styling.

Speaking of styling, remember how awful Stacy looked when she made her debut as Clooney’s piece at the Toronto Film Festival last year? It was all bird’s nest hair and black velvet cocktail waitress dresses. It was AWFUL. In Touch Weekly has a “Stacy Keibler: Pre and Post-Clooney” photo array this week, much of which I won’t even try to duplicate. Suffice to say, even though I don’t love Stacy’s style at all these days, she has made significant improvements since getting with Clooney. And In Touch even has a theory as to how that happened:

George Clooney friend says George was “secretly horrified” by Stacy’s earlier looks, so he hooked her up with a stylist and his credit card.

“George gave her a major makeover,” a friend says. The whole sounds very Pretty Woman!

[In Touch, print edition]

Yes, it does sound “very Pretty Woman”. How astute!

But I won’t yell at Stacy all the time. Yesterday, she did a photo-op – for a charity! She was raising awareness for One Day Without Shoes, a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of shoes in preventing childhood injury and illness. You can see some photos here, at The Mail. She almost flashed her beave in one photo. FOR THE CHILDREN.

    He is so shallow and fake..if you’re interested in a woman you should like her the way she is, otherwise you should look for another kind of woman, not change her to like her better. If it was me i would be so offended that i would probably never see the man again. It is such an embarassing thing and no amount of money would convince me on doing that, not even George Clooney, which in my opinion is showing more and more what a self centered person he is, and this is the demostration that he just needed a fine piece of meat for his Oscar campaign. I think Stacy could do so much better..all that glitter ain’t gold!

    • Mel says:

      Guiding someone on how to improve their style isn’t exactly self centered. That being said she looks so much better in the above photos!

      • irishserra says:

        I think Paola’s point was that the “gift of a makeover” wasn’t exactly for her benefit. It was for his. She’s right. He is a self-centered person who will continue to go through women like a baby through diapers as long as they keep lining up. Ugh.

        Paola was just emphasizing her own sense of self-respect.

      • Kevin says:

        totally agree Mel. Clooney ain’t gonna have some ragga-muffin BS chick on the red carpet. As opposed to what most of the hens on this site say, George gets consistently hot pieces. (Beside Brad pitt. He’s a skank :-). He could have just kicked her butt to the curb and she would never have enjoyed the benefits of being Georgie’s escort. Money is no object for him and I think it was smart of her to at least listen and give a new look a try.

      • flan says:

        ‘the hens on this site’.

        And what are you, but a rooster whose shrill voice makes everyone curse morning.

    • Esmom says:

      ITA. Except I’d guess there’s nothing personal about this whole thing on his part, it’s all business.

  2. really says:

    Her body was much nicer before the boob job. Before she looked athletic, now she looks encumbered.

  3. Blah says:

    He likes his girlfriends being manly looking… Interesting.

    • polk8dot says:

      Holy cow, that exactly what I thought!
      There hasot been ONE who was feminine, or georgeous, or a knock-out. They have all been, if not homely but with good bodies, then definitely not very pretty, and never projecting the soft, sweet and warm womanhood.
      Oh, it sooooo makes perfect sense…
      All my misgivings, all my weird feelings and readings of him and his ‘relationships’. All exlained finally by that one simple phrase, ‘manly looking’.

  4. bea says:

    Looks like a nose job, fer sher.

    Great bod, but there is something supremely uninteresting about her…….

  5. Fair and Balance says:

    George Clooney was “secretly horrified and yet his ‘friends’ know the ‘secret’ . I hope the tabloids get sued out of existence one of these days.

  6. honeychurch says:

    Eyebrows. That’s the big difference I see. Better eyebrows. It’s amazing how much proper eyebrow shaping will do to your face.

    • Mimi says:

      Good call. Those are bordering on Pam Anderson territory there…

    • fabgrrl says:

      Yes, it’s the brows. I think it is an improvement. The brows did something kind of weird to her eyes and expression before.

      A little work on the nose, probably, and different hair styling. I don’t know what her clothing, besides her undies, looked like before. I can’t be bothered to look it up. But I don’t see a MAJOR overhaul, just access to better stylists. Maybe she is trying to look older, more refined and elegant, now that she is walking the red carpet with George Clooney.

    • P.J. says:

      It’s the eyebrows, plus cheek implants to make her cheekbones heftier and more prominent. The implants are subtle but definitely change one’s looks.

      • polk8dot says:

        That actually makes perfect sense. I used to think that she had beautiful, huge eyes, earlier in her career. Then in her ‘Clooney phase’ her eyes seem to have disappeared into her face. Since the eyes are the only part of the face that can’t be changed, it must therefore be the areas around them that now make them seem so tiny and squinty. And bushier eyebrows, along with cheek implants, would do just that.
        Great catch!
        Also, just BTW, I think I recognize some lip sculpting, too. Her original lips were much more heart-shaped, and kind of like there were just not enough of them on the face.

    • gg says:

      The eyebrows are driving me crazy in these pics. Stare into the eyes and men turn into stone. But maybe they were just been drawn on funky that day. They go up awfully high. Gives her a cartoony look across the eyes. So glad she changed them!

  7. atlantapug says:

    He face looks so Meh in those photos. Especially the first one, horribly unflattering angle.

    She is so…. what am I looking for…. boring? uninteresting? plain?….. no.

    Common. That’s it.

  8. mandymandy says:

    Her eyebrows make me sad

  9. The Truth Fairy says:

    Wow, that’s some major plastic surgery!

  10. Bite me says:

    Amazing body…average face… Irritating personality…

  11. Guest says:

    He was horrified, but not enough to stop dating her. The whole photo shoot looks air brushed and why are the pictures surfacing now. Is this one of his/her PR stunts.

  12. Agnes says:

    i think the big difference are the eyebrows. and maybe something different with the nose? her cheeks looks different too, but that could be photoshop.

  13. Guest says:

    From the very beginning, when Stacy had the birds nest on her head and then following weeks there was a transformation, it reminded me of the movie “My Fair Lady.” I could see party girl Stacy singing “I could of danced all night.” and George singing “The Rain in Spain Falls mainly on the Plain.” Hey, that’s a movie the two can make together. Wouldn’t that be an Oscar contender.

    • Pseudoangie says:

      I was just thinking that Clooney should be dubbed Prof. Higgins. He’ll be going through many more Elizas.

    • Aqua says:

      George jokingly said that he would like his next movie to be a musical so you just might never know a possibly remake maybe?

  14. Marjalane says:

    She looks like a Soviet Union mail order bride in those early pics. This whole Clooney/string of endless bimbos, irritates me because it makes all his other noteworthy achievements forgettable. It’s hard to admire part A, when part B is standing there with boob tape on, and a rats nest on her head.

  15. Rhea says:

    For some reason she looked like Patsy Kensit in those old pics…

    • polk8dot says:

      Oh, come now – what did Patsy Kensit ever did to you, for you to saddle her with such comparison? Patsy was sooo much prettier, fresher, and totally original looking; she was like a spring morning.
      Stacey is so plain, so ‘every day’, so uninteresting. Looking at her every day must feel so mundane…

  16. Cody says:

    I read that in the Daily Mail about Stacy and the pedicure fundraiser. Must have been a slow gossip day. So that is how Stacy is contributing to the world by having pretty toes. Thank you Stacy. Now if she only can get arrested for the cause and go before Congress that would be something.

  17. carlino altoviti says:

    Stacy is a gran gnocca.


  18. Talie says:

    George Clooney was “secretly horrified” with Stacy Keibler’s early style…

    Like any queen bee would be.

  19. cupidityrox says:

    Is that the butt everyone keeps raving about?
    Looks completely average to me.

  20. Bobo says:

    Can Cray Cray come to our PTA fundraiser. A local salon in our community is donating a percentage of the proceeds to our PTA this Saturday, for every person that has a pedicure.

  21. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I doubt Clooney gave an eff about her style. I never realized she had her nose done though..interesting..
    Anyway, I would never tell someone I loved how to dress UNLESS they asked for my advice. The guy I’m seeing now is prone to wearing sweatsuits (yes FULL-ON sweatsuits, something you used to find in Woolworth’s) and I truly don’t give a sh*t. That just shows how in love (and apparently, insane) I am with this dude..

  22. Holly Hobby says:

    Yup she got a nose job. Her nose looks pinched now. It’s ok, not as bad as Janice Dickinson.

  23. Weezy says:

    If she didn’t like his makeover, Stacy could have walked away from the whole thing, but she chose to stay to help her so called career.

  24. Eve says:

    George Clooney friend says George was “secretly horrified” by Stacy’s earlier looks

    I thought that was the reason why he hired her — ooops, fell in love with her — in the first place…

  25. Miss says:

    No denying that she is a gorgeous gal.

  26. Erica says:

    Old nose was so much better, as is usually the case. In these pics she reminds me of a young Maria Bello. Too sad she screwed up her face!

  27. janie says:

    Her body is meh to me…mainly because my body looks like hers and I badly want to be curvier.
    I guess that was the intention of the boob job, though. She looks way better now, albeit faker.

  28. dovesgate says:

    I love that she’s totally checking out George’s ass in the bottom picture. I don’t know why, I just think it’s kind of awesome.

  29. wunder says:

    Well, George sure likes them ‘manly’.

  30. Esmom says:

    I wouldn’t have even known it was her from these old photos. Wow, big changes.

  31. wunder says:

    The only thing that hasn’t changed is her 5 o’clock shadow.

  32. mew says:

    Even if he’s self centered for giving a woman a style, there’s surely a queue to be the next He’ll-marry-me-for-sure girlfriend once this one gets dumped.

    I’d love to have a guy to give me his credit card and an expensive style. Wouldn’t say no at all. Even if I knew it wasn’t going to be forever. Who knows, he might be just fine after all and maybe they even discussed about it.

    As much as “he uses the girls” the girls surely use him. At least he pays.

  33. New girl says:

    I call Clooney “Wooderson”, that’s Matthew McConnoghey’s character in Dazed and confused, who said “That’s what I like about high school girls, I get older, they stay the same age.”

  34. Holden says:

    Uhm, I’m not sure swimsuits or lingerie she’s wearing have any “style” at all. Let’s see some pictures of her wrestling! That would be embarrassing…

  35. deb says:

    i’m guessing this is the kind of secret where the secret-holder goes: “pst, i got a secret, but don’t tell anyone, okay”
    and then the other person goes to their bestfriend/significantother/etc and go: “ere, listen, cloonster just told me summing. but you gotta keep it sikrit okie?”

  36. Cleo says:

    She looks like Brooke Logan. Hard to believe that George Clooney was looking for work and never ended up on The BOLD and the Beautiful.

  37. LoveMeDo says:

    Another fake story thrown out there to prove Clooney is straight.

  38. LC says:


  39. ziggy says:

    Stacy might have a nice body, but she has annoying voice. I would also put George and Stacy into the strange relationship category, like Harvey Weinstein and his wife Georgina Chapmen. I wonder what the conversation would be like if all four of them got together for dinner.

  40. iseepinkelefant says:

    When I was younger I used to watch wrestling (leave me alone it was my brother and his tv haording fault) and I still can’t believe Clooney is dating her. It’s just laughable, the women this man dates. No shame.

  41. minivanmom says:

    How is it that these sexy photos from 2008 came out on the same day as her “Save the World” pedicure photo op came out. Is Stacy’s PR people trying to counter act her sexy girl photos, with Stacy doing a good deed photo or is George so “secretly horrified” that he made her go out and do something with activist sort of twist to save his image.

  42. I am Legend says:

    She looks fine now and she looked fine before, but “Hello?” she was a professional wrestler. Plus she’s always in a bathing suit or underwear so what style?

  43. carlino altoviti says:

    If George is planning a candidature to the White House he will have to find a good first lady, do you think Stacy is a good choice? if she isn’t, who else could it be?

    • Cody says:

      Having Stacy Keibler as first lady or first lady of anything, that George would run for, is a scary thought. She could over see a national or state wide cleanse and wrestling program.

    • Sakota says:

      He must be insane to think that he can become President of the US, despite the fact that he has no qualifications. I mean, he has no diplomatic background other than his humanitarian posturing, has no history of service to the nation, and has no decent work history that would connect him to the American people.

  44. Laura says:

    Bit late on this one, but I (sadly) used to watch wrestling as a teenage girl, and all the women had HUGE fake boobs and she was pretty much the only one who didn’t. I have a similar body shape to her (albeit without the muscles, which is fine by me), and I was highly insecure as a teen about this when everyone on the TV had big boobs and was short and curvy. I’m not saying she was inspiring by any means, but seeing that body shape on the TV showed me I didn’t need big fake boobs and I could make the most out of the natural assets I have! Can’t believe I just sorta stood up for her there…

  45. lona says:

    after elisabetta bad style he must think twice but i really think he can’t be bothered by such a thing ,george like stacy he always on a vacation with her
