Hilary Duff got her lips done, and they’re really obvious: does she realize?

I live on the East Coast in a rural area, so my friends are less likely to get Botox, fillers and plastic surgery. People are pretty casual here and they rarely go in for injectables. I do have friends that have done Botox, but generally they take it easy and it’s not that noticeable. That’s all a preface to this story about Hilary Duff’s very obvious new lips. I like Hilary so I’m trying to rationalize this for her as a kind of cultural thing. Like what looks ridiculous and over the top to us is actually how a lot of Hollywood women end up looking, and her friends may have convinced her that this would be worth it.

I know, from past celebrities with terrible slug lips, that this will probably settle for her at some point and not look as joker-like. As long as she just got a jab and not one of those Lisa Rinna or Taylor Armstrong lip implants, she should be ok. For now, though, it’s looking really painful and obvious.

Once last year I got my eyebrows done and the hairdresser totally botched it. She made them tiny and black and I was mortified. (I’ve surely told this story before, forgive me.) So I got some Jolen facial bleaching cream to undo the damage from the awful eyebrow dye, and I bought a bunch of powders and eyebrow pencils to fill them in. Before I figured out what to do with my eyebrows, I was mortified and didn’t want to leave the house. (They’re back to normal now, thanks for asking.)

So what I want to know is if Hilary feels super embarrassed and is just making the best of a bad situation or if she thinks she looks good. From far away she looks ok, but up close not so much. If she knows how obvious her new lips are, props to her for leaving the house and being like “I have to deal with it and cannot hide.”

Also, she looks great otherwise.

    She didn’t seem bothered by her new teeth being really obvious, so I doubt she cares that the lips are a billboard for tragic facial tweaking.

    • Shaniqua Nunyadambidness says:


    • QQ says:

      ROTFL Right Katie?! I was coming to say that! If those Horse teeth she got aint Bothered her, this aint no thang!

    • RocketMerry says:

      I think she realizes and is bothered by it.
      My guess is she didn’t expect the swelling, is totally mortified and by now has figured that if she smiles really wide the top lip will stretch and not look so obvious. She must have thought that way she could minimize it during an “emergency” (such as a rare unplanned paparazzi-run-in) until the swelling subsides.

      Sigh. Poor Hilary. I actually like her (was that not clear? πŸ™‚ ), always thought she was so gorgeous.
      I’m very disappointed that she fell for this.

    • Sheeeeeesh says:

      Quack! Quack!

  2. LadyMTL says:

    Aaaaagh, they look really scary close up. I wonder if it hurts, all swollen like that?

  3. Eve says:

    Good — now she has the lips that match her giant teeth.

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Those teefs really were hilarious.

      • Rigaou says:

        These are actually her second set of teeth. If you think these are big you should see the first set, enormous. She replaced them with these smaller ones.

  4. Mia 4S says:

    Oh dear, so it begins. Someone told her to be relevant again she needs to make a few changes. I imagine a huge weight loss will be next. Sad.

  5. Red32 says:

    It looks like she got her cheeks done, too. Or maybe her cheeks look different because of her lips.

    • QQ says:

      You are right, they look painful too

    • carrie says:

      i have the same idea: when she doesn’t smile,her face is really different

      • yellowlala says:

        That’s what I was going to say, looks like she got waaaay more than just her lips done. Looks like fillers and botox. Does not look good

    • Samantha says:

      Yep, definitely looks like she got more than just the lips done. So sad–she was beautiful before. Why do such young women do this to themselves?

    • ninjaja says:

      she got her eyes done too so sad!! what the hell does a 25 year old have any business do this much to her face!? she was gorgeous before.

    • Dinah says:

      Most of her face looks altered- the plastic-y smooth forehead, the bloated cutlet cheeks. Yikes.

  6. Ms Kay says:

    On the very 1st pic it’s kinda obvious eh, big fat bee stung lips.

    I realize I never ever followed her personal and career antics, the *only* film I’ve seen so far is that Cinderella story with the One Tree Hill guy basically playing his One Tree Hill role in there.

  7. someone says:

    you guys, she calls the paps right? like at this point i don’t think paparazzi is going out of their way to photograph her? i’m not saying this to be a jerk, i think she seems sweet but she’s ALWAYS getting photographed. also omg, why would she do this to her lips, she has always been so gorgeous. ugh

    • Happymom says:

      Of course she does! She doesn’t work, just exercises and hangs out with her baby-and we see photos of her all.the.time.

    • carrie says:

      or she pays a paparazzi to follow her and sell the pics

    • megs283 says:

      yea! I mean…it looks like she pulled over to the side of the road, got out of the car, and was walking toward the paparazzi and waving…??

      Maybe it’s one of those 100-yard lenses and she’s actually approaching a friend…

  8. Sisi says:

    Holy shit, ridiculous!

  9. Amelia says:

    Aside from the trout pout, she is looking pretty damn awesome.
    What’s she been up to lately, work wise? I feel like all she’s known for now is getting married and having a kid.

  10. some bitch says:

    Those lips and teeth are just awful. She’s so cute too. But lip injections eventually fade away, right?

    • MrsBPitt says:

      I don’t know if they go back to normal or not, because I have a co-worker who had lip injections more than a year ago and she still has horrible duck lips…

  11. Zigggy says:

    Oh my god- that first pic! She doesn’t look bad in the other pics though.

  12. hoya_chick says:

    What exactly does she do to get papd almost daily?! When was the last time she was in a movie? Released an album? I don’t get it.

    Close up her lips like ridiculous and she is always doing that duck face thing which makes it worse. Good news, now her fake lips can match her horse teeth and boob job. No matter how normal they are, they always succumb to the plastic surgery beast. It’s a shame.

  13. Post-Its says:

    I actually said “Oh!” out loud when I looked at that first picture. Yikes.

  14. Violet says:

    Rumor has it that her husband constantly belittles her, so I’m guessing that’s the reason for the tweaking. It’s a shame, because she’s ruining her looks.

  15. Just Me says:

    I’m not gonna hate on her lips. No, no. I’m gonna hate on the fact that she’s wearing an effing T-shirt in January. I’m all wrapped up in a down coat in my house and still freezing MAO.

    • Lulu says:

      It was in the 70’s here for a few days. Sorry you are freezing! πŸ™

      • Just Me says:

        Thanks Lulu. It’ll warm up here next week. Just cold as all get out right now. Super envious right now of everyone with warmer weather! Winter & I do not get along. πŸ˜‰

  16. serena says:

    I think she is getting bored so she did that.. god, they look awful. I really don’t understand women who feel the need to do THAT to their faces. She had pretty lips too.. meh

  17. MoxyLady007 says:

    Her whole face looks really puffy. Her mouth looks hard to move. Shellfish allergy? Nope. LA face.
    That said, I have always liked her.

  18. Reece says:

    Holy S–t! Dayuuum…

  19. lucy2 says:

    Oh goodness! From far away not bad, but up close?! Hope they go down a little, because she does look good otherwise.

  20. littlestar says:

    I’m really surprised Hilary Duff is still married to Mike Comrie. Hilary seems like a nice enough girl, but Mike Comrie is a MEGA douche.

    Comrie used to play hockey for the Edmonton Oilers (my hometown, a city that adores its hockey team, so there was always juicy hockey gossip going around). Comrie’s family is super wealthy (they own the furniture store chain The Brick). Back when Comrie played for the Oilers the first time, the goal tender at the time was Tommy Salo. Tommy Salo asked to leave the Oilers and most people thought it was because he was going through a divorce. Well, the reason why he was going through a divorce is because Tommy Salo’s wife was cheating on him with Mike Comrie!!!

    I’ve always wondered if Hilary Duff knew of this story… There’s been lots of rumours in the hockey world of Mike Comrie cheating on Hilary. He doesn’t play hockey anymore, but given his past, I believe them.

    • carrie says:

      it’s him her husband?
      i thought her husband is an unemployed actor:he only is an unemployed untalented hockey player with a super wealthy family

      • littlestar says:

        Her husband Mike Comrie used to play in the National Hockey League. He was an alright player, but no where near a superstar hockey player. He retired a few years ago because he had too many injuries and had no chance of becoming a hockey “superstar”.

    • meh says:

      Edmonton represent!!

      • SusieQ says:

        Hey littlestar and meh from a fellow Edmontonian. I figure Hilary is following in her friend Leah Millers footsteps….Leah was a VJ from Much Music, now hosts So You Think You Can Dance Canada. I saw a show that they were both on and they said they were real life friends. Leah has injected and botoxed her once cute face into an unrecognizable, unmoving mass. I googled her old face and it was so cute, do not understand why she did what she did to it. Can’t understand why Hilary would do the same.

      • littlestar says:

        SusieQ – it’s absolutely horrible what Leah Miller did to her face! My mom watches SYTYCD Canada and I watched it one night with her, my mouth literally dropped to the floor when I saw the plastic mess Leah’s face had become. I said to my mom, “That girl used to be gorgeous when she was on Much Music.” My mom agreed that she looked fake and overdone and she had never seen the ‘normal’ Leah before. I believe it when you say she must have influenced Hilary.

  21. Michele says:

    She is such a naturally pretty girl who does not need to be altering her young face.

  22. serena says:

    Boob-job? Really? I don’t see it.

  23. Happy21 says:

    WTF! She didn’t need that! She has always had a gorgeous smile. Hilary, step away from the plastic surgery, the fillers and the botox, you are beautiful just the way you are!

    • abbizmal says:

      Really, what the fork? To late. Was beautiful the way she once was. It’s sad what they do to their faces. We don’t see men doing this. Many are still so young. Do those duck lips go back to normal after a bit? I’d be mortified and wouldn’t leave the house either.

  24. aims says:

    She looks so natural! Eye roll.

  25. Ponytail says:

    I don’t really know who she is, but the lips don’t seem that bad (obviously I don’t know what she looked like before, and can’t be arsed to look her up). The first picture looks bad, but it could be that she was saying something, or was about to laugh, or something. Nah, if you want me to be shocked, get someone who looked REALLY bad, like Leslie Ash !

  26. Lulu says:

    I am not familiar enough with her face to recognize the change, so I actually think they look good and go with her teeth. They say that a person’s lips generally are in proportion to the size of their teeth, so I guess she is trying to even things up.

    I got my lips blown up once. I even had a drivers license photo to go with them. I looked ridiculous, but I loved them. LOL

    • Laurabb says:

      I feel the same, they go well with her teeth. I think she looks pretty good. But I’m also thinking about permanent lip make up so I may not be a good judge.

  27. Cat says:

    her whole face looks swollen. Wouldn’t be surprised if she’s pregnant again

  28. Amanda Garrett says:

    Yikes! In that first pic, she looks like a completely different person.

  29. CocoBelly says:

    Lol, wasn’t expecting that pic. She reminded me of a chatacter Jamie Foxx used to play on in living color.

  30. Nev says:

    Hils can do whatever she wants…she’s really pretty!!!! haha

  31. Patrice says:

    Good LORD, sweet Jesus and all of that!! I can’t say I’m surprised though; Hilary Duff started buying herself an entirely new face years ago. It’s actually pretty sad really…If you ever catch a glimpse of old Lizzy Maguire episodes (in my case, my little cousin has the books), it’s obvious she pretty much doesn’t have anything remaining of her original face now. Idk why though; she used to be adorable!

  32. Patrice says:

    Lol @CocoBelly: Yes! Wanda!!!

  33. anon says:

    She really is whipping herself into shape body wise but different days depending on what she wears not so much.

    TO me it looks more then lips here but she also will be in some TV role here shortly.

    Im not terribly fond of Hilary she keeps a lot hidden & with that she is no sweet Lizzy McGuire. She seems to not have much origional out there of her own. She copies a lot of other celebs trying to fit in.

  34. HadleyB says:

    honestly I dont see that much difference it just looks like its the way she is smiling .. I looked at some pics from back in Oct and her lips were pretty full there too. ??

  35. Bonnie says:

    She was so much prettier before she did anything to her face and teeth. She’s making herself look like her sister and she was the pretty one!

  36. Kosmos says:

    Mistake….why do they do the lips? This is ridiculous.

  37. skuddles says:

    Big lips to go with her big teeth.

  38. Kitty kat says:

    Well at least she didn’t come out looking like Lindsay Lohan. Now she needs needs to stop with the lip injections! And what’s with the double chin?!?!?!

  39. Gracie says:

    Just like Raven, I can’t hate Lizzie McGuire, oops, I mean Hilary Duff, that show was my childhood! Just as long as there are no nude photos or sex tapes, she’s fine by me.

  40. Cirque28 says:

    Why aren’t people more interested in looking human with human-like features?

    To be such a pretty girl and then remake your face to be all outsized lips and teeth… I don’t get it.

  41. Deniconn says:

    Uh Oh…. I knew this would happen some day… she’s been hanging with Leah Miller too long….

  42. Moi says:

    Wow. Yeah. She needs to stop with the juvaderm, restalyne, whatever she is injecting into her lips. Everything in moderation girl.

  43. Chrissy says:

    Her cheeks look puffed up too, which is making her eyes look squinty. I doubt she can fully close her mouth (or move it much at all, based on the close-up) and it makes her big fake teeth look really bad. Just a disaster. I hope it settles.

  44. -.- says:

    Really? she didn’t do anything, that’s just a dumb photo, her lips are the same as always and if you don’t belive me check the old photos and the photos where she don’t have that face, paparazzis do this to have something to talk about but this is not real, and I say this because I’m her fan since ’01 so it’s obviously that if you know you’re idol in photos you should know how she looks. And remember she just lost almost all the weight after Luca borns so say this is so stupid.

  45. tc says:

    In that main pic, she looks like the a Downs Syndrome beauty queen. Not so bad in the others. I don’t know what it is with these women. Maybe it’s their manager’s and agents are getting a kickback from the doctors for convincing them to get plastic unnatural looking faces.
    As for her teeth, I don’t remember what they used to look like. I think the winner of the worst mouth make over has to be Snooky. She went from crooked but not ugly teeth to a set of too perfect choppers that look like they came from a glass next to Andy William’s bedside. When I saw them, I immediately started wondering if she got them cheap at an estate sale.

  46. Kristin says:

    FYI it’s not Botox that makes trout lips, it’s filler like Juvederm…stop using Botox as an umbrella term for bad plastic surgery! Botox is used to paralyze the muscles on the forehead and around the eyes and when you see that surprised look, it’s actually most likely an actual eye lift, not Botox

  47. Velouria says:

    If she literally JUST got it done, they’re probably just a little swollen. But still…gah!

  48. Anna says:

    What is she at a truck stop?!

  49. Sue says:

    That must have hurt! But I see it alot …. I live in la

  50. Cpm says:

    She just wanted her huge lips to be proportional to her big body.

  51. Bogz says:

    She got botox around her eyes and cheeks too I think.

  52. Loralei says:

    Celebitchy, at the beginning of last month I got a facial and the lady said that she would “just clean up a little bit some of the outside eyebrow hairs”. Well, she totally butchered my eyebrows. Half of them are gone and one is way smaller than the other. Needless to say, I am mortified and I don’t even want to leave the house. I bought powders and pencils but nothing works. Thanks for assuring me that they will grow back. I’m totally freaked out about it!

    • Celebitchy says:

      I’m so sorry! I feel your pain. Here are the products I use, which may work for you or maybe you’ve tried them already! I hope it works out. At CVS I found “Ardell Brow Perfection Stencils,” which are only carried at the bigger CVS stores by me. (You can get identical stencils with a different brow powder called Salon Perfect, available at some Walmarts. The powder didn’t work for me, but the stencils are the same.) Then I used “Maybelline Ultra Brow Brush-on color” to fill in my brows with the stencils, which gave them a nice shape. This helped fill in my brows as they grew in, but it was still awkward until they grew back.

      A while ago I saw a makeover show and they had an interview with that eyebrow expert lady, Anastasia. She recommended to start with the stencil and powder, and then to finish with an eyebrow wax pencil. I have that too, it’s Revlon Colorstay Brow Enhancer. I don’t use it as much, but it may be helpful to you to fill in spots that the powder isn’t reaching. I don’t like regular eyebrow pencils, they haven’t done much for me either.

      • Loralei says:

        Thank you SO much! I panicked and went and bought all kinds of products, but I don’t have a clue about how to use them, so now i’ll follow your advice and try to re-create some eyebrows. Thanks again! (I’m never ever letting anyone touch my eyebrows again).

  53. Emma says:

    Teeth yes, and probably lips but I do not see a nose job… in all the before and after pics, it looks exactly the same….. she lost her baby face fat and her whole face was skinnier as a result…..
    I looove Hilary Duff so I hope this was just an experiment gone wrong… like a new haircut…

  54. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    Her top lip looks like a peeled sausage – yuk. Think it’s about to burst.

  55. D.L. says:

    Her face looks a lot bigger than it used to be.
