Sarah Ferguson did a bizarre sponcon interview for her cosmetic surgeon

British Heart Foundation's Heart Hero Awards

Sarah Ferguson turns 60 years old on October 15th. Honestly? I thought she was older. I’m not age-shaming, I’m just saying that whenever I see photos of her, I think that she must not have worn sunscreen for years, not that she has great skin. But to hear Fergie talk, she’s paying thousands of dollars on her skincare regimen. That’s the focus of this absolutely bonkers Daily Mail interview, which is basically sponcon. At first, I thought it was a weird propaganda piece about Fergie’s birthday, but as I kept reading it, I became convinced that Fergie is being lowkey paid by this facialist/laser-treatment specialist to shill for this particular brand of laser-treatment. I wonder how much Fergie was paid? Some quotes from this bonkers DM piece:

Why Fergie looked so good at Eugenie’s wedding: ‘The happiness was shining out of me because my daughter was getting married. I was so glad. I love Jack. When I’m passionate about anything, my eyes shine. Above all, it was being joyful for Eugenie that made me look good. But I’d had some laser treatment on my face which helped, too.’

The laser treatment: The woman behind the Duchess’s treatment is Polish-born Dr Gabriela Mercik, who at her Harley Street clinic, has just launched what she calls the world’s first 6-Dimension Ultimate Laser Treatment facelift. The Duchess and Dr Gabriela met in 1992 when Sarah was visiting young cancer victims in Upper Silesia, Poland. The doctor, then a medical student, was helping to treat them. They’ve stayed in touch. ‘I’m very loyal to my friends,’ says the Duchess. When Dr Gabriela moved into aesthetic medicine, and opened her clinic, firstly in Northern Ireland, and then in London, Sarah became one of her patients.

Fergie can barely sit through the 90 minute procedures: ‘I live on jingly-jangly nerves. I’m very focused, earnestly intense, but I live at high speed. I don’t sit down for long. I’m always saying to Dr Gabriela: “Come on, come on! Hurry up!” I’m the worst patient.’

Fergie prefers the lasers to Botox: ‘I had Botox a long time ago when there was nothing else available…I really don’t like the frozen look. I’m so animated and I like to be myself. I don’t like the thought of needles and am very glad if I look well and happy.’

Fergie is also shilling for Dr Gabriela’s skincare range: ‘Her serum (Aesthetic Magic Facelift Serum) is great for healing cold sores. Incredible. I’ve been her guinea pig with new treatments, too. I’m really happy to be open about what I’ve had done.’

What else Fergie had done: Sarah began having mesotherapy — an injection of vitamins, minerals and amino acids under the face’s mesodermal layer to plump skin — in 2013, then moved onto organic fillers, non-invasive injectables that fill out facial lines. Then, five years ago, Dr Gabriela proposed a thread lift. Also called ‘a puppet lift’, this involves no knives. Instead, medical threads are inserted into the skin to create a supportive mesh that pulls the face upwards. The threads dissolve over six to eight months, but the results should last for two years. Dr Gabriela was one of the first to introduce the thread lift to the UK in 2013 and travels around the world teaching the procedure. ‘It’s like garden trellising for sweat peas. You insert the threads under the skin with a fine needle and they hold everything up,’ says Sarah.

But does Fergie pay for this stuff? Prices for the 6D laser lift start at £3,750. Sarah has and does pay for treatments ‘at Dr Gabriela’s discretion,’ given that they have become friends.

[From The Daily Mail]

“Sarah has and does pay for treatments ‘at Dr Gabriela’s discretion.’” My lord. This is how Fergie “pays” for years of (bad) cosmetic work: by doing highkey sponcon in the Daily Mail. I truly don’t care about laser treatments and all of that stuff – some people swear by them, some people don’t see a difference. But if I was a cosmetic laser specialist trying to shill my special project, I would NOT want Fergie to be the face of the infomercial. Still, I hope Dr. Gabriela signed a big check to Fergie for this messy sponsorship. Or maybe it was like I said – Fergie’s been getting so much free stuff that this is the way she had to pay back Dr. Gabriela.

    Do you think that she doesn’t care that Andrews spent decades raping teen sex slaves, or are their fortunes so entwined, if she abandoned him/stood against him- she would lose access to the wealthy and therefore lose money?

    • AppleTartin says:

      Her fortune? I thought she blew through all her money and that’s why she was selling access to him for some coin. She was also still living on his estate since she had no where else to go. Not sure if she still is or not.

      She will never stand against him which would mean against the Queen. She is dependent on them and God Forbid the Queen decides to strip the girls of their titles.

  2. DiegoInSF says:

    I thought the results needed to be good for sponCONs? 🐸🍵

  3. Deanne says:

    What in the F is she wearing in the top photo? Good god.

    • Lady D says:

      She looks like such a complete and utter slob in that top picture. I went back and forth between the pictures a few times, there is such a difference in her appearance. I’d love to hear her explanation for that look and even more I’d like to know why she went out in public looking like that.

  4. Justme says:

    Sarah looks like a redhead who spent decades sun worshipping. She even said her mother thought Nivea was a sunscreen!

  5. Giddy says:

    Oh dear……..

  6. kerwood says:

    If I were her plastic surgeon,, I’d pay her good money to NEVER mention my name.

  7. Lynne says:

    I think she looks her age but her make-up does her no favors. Too harsh with the eyeliner.

  8. The Other Sarah says:

    This was 100% a trade between Fergie and the DM so the DM would not run some other story. It is way too detailed and frankly embarrassing for Fergie to be anything other than a trade-in-kind.

    • Betsy says:

      This is an explanation that makes sense to me. She’s a cheesy shill, but I can’t imagine even she would like all these details out there. And knowing that she and her family are as gross and tacky as they are, and both she and her husband had epstein entanglements, I wonder what she doesn’t want out there.

    • FHMom says:

      This is the only explanation. No plastic surgeon would want to take credit for her face.

  9. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Yuck. Her face would NOT make me want to go to this surgeon. She looks terrible. And yes – she definitely looks older than 60.

  10. Chef Grace says:

    I am nearly 61 and do not have a fourth of those wrinkles. And I live in Texas. But I have always used sunscreen and facial cream.

    • Sparky says:

      How about this: I’m 60, live in sunny Los Angeles, until recently was haphazard about sunscreen and I also do not have 1/4 of those wrinkles.

  11. Le4Frimaire says:

    She is such a messy self promoter, serious Mama Rose and Mama June vibes. She’s like a caricature from a Dominic Dunne or Thackeray novel. I seriously thought this read like a marketing press release. If she could, she’d have Bea’s wedding sponsored and all over Instagram.

  12. My3cents says:

    The only good thing I can say about this messy and shameless promotion is that at least they didn’t drag Meghan into it ( because of course she only gets her beauty tips from Kate).
    Ugh classy as ever.
    She should get together with Thomas Markle they could be the ultimate shameless griffting power couple.

  13. Carol says:

    I think she looks pretty good for her. She was never a great beauty to begin with and the sun is really harsh on fair skin, particularly red heads. But she looks kept up. I never heard of that vitamin injection thing. Thats sounds pretty wacky but sounds interesting…

  14. Sumodo1 says:

    I’m 63 and Fergie has that “redhead skin thing,” meaning that she should never, ever risk sun exposure. My redhead sister is 61 and learned that lesson very young, though just uses moisturizer from Avon. She barely looks 50, while Fergie looks like a hard 61.

  15. The Recluse says:

    I think it just comes down to the fact that Ferguson likely never took good care of herself: nutrition or skin care. And it shows.
    Plus whatever is going on with her personality; that always shows through.

  16. Skyblue says:

    I can’t get past the red ribbon headband. WTF?
