    I would have loved to see what Ms Lycett’s face really looks like. She is aging gracefully and to air brush her this much in a “beauty through the ages” issue is quite an irony.

      Modupe has been AIRBRUSHED TO OBLIVION – the person in the photo above IS NOT HER*** google her and see she does not qualify to be put on anything promoting GRACEFUL AGING. Plastic surgery has left its trademark sneer on her face…oh how poorly she has aged for a woman in her 40’s…

    What’s my take? My take is I don’t understand how putting a woman (Modupe Ozolua) who encourages women to undergo plastic surgery and alter their natural looks is an appropriate way of celebrating women.

      She encourages women to change what they can about their bodies if they can afford it! She doesn’t force anyone. Most importantly she hasn’t forced herself on us as a celebrity, she just does her job, and sometimes promotes it by granting interviews.
      Plastic surgery or not, I respect any woman’s choice on how she chooses to age, and as with everything else in this life, moderation is key.
      Take Michele Obama who recently stated that she wasn’t ruling out plastic surgery; She is obviously a woman who prides herself in her looks, amongst other things. I say , come one day when exercise and a healthy diet won’t be enough to keep her looking fab? (and trust me, that day will come!!) A little nip and tuck here and there won’t hurt anyone!!
      My dear lets wait till we get older before judging anyone about trying to fix their body, don’t be too sure about your stance.

    @ avid blog reader, yea the airbrushing was too much. You can’t even see any lines. I think over airbrushing makes a picture lose character. I want to see laugh lines and wrinkles. Airhrushing is in vogue. But it is a beautiful picture all the same. The makeup is fab. @ dee usa, I think plastic surgery is a choice. I’m sure modupe ozolua only encourages women that want to do it for themselves as in to boost their confidence. I’m sure she doesn’t force them to alter their appearances. Moreover, she does reconstructive surgery in addition to cosmetic for fks that have been involved in accidents. The fact that she is a plastic surgeon does not mean she is beautiful. Yea she has had a boob job but that doesn’t mean anything. We wear padded bras, false eyelashes, fix acrylic, even fix human hair, some folks even have false teeth. I guess we are all trying to look more appealing. It’s just that some take more extreme measures. Besides beauty is more than skin deep. 🙂

      So you actually think a boob job is the only cosmetic alteration she’s done? Encouraging and forcing are two different things, so no need to explain to me that she doesn’t force anyone. Having said that, she IS NOT a plastic surgeon. She merely provides the services by hiring someone to do it. While you can applaud her ability to provide reconstructive surgery, I don’t think that’s what the cover is suggesting. The mag is celebrating these women as the epitome of beauty at those ages (lots of mags do these as well.) So it doesn’t matter what the story is about on the inside because many of us will never get to read it. What we are seeing though, and what is more influential is that she is being lauded as the epitome of beauty in the 40s. It’s the same controversy surrounding the model industry and the impact airbrushing models into stick thin figures with no visible pores has created this reinforcing image of what the ideal woman should look like.

    Sorry some typos. I meant the fact that she is a plastic surgery doesn’t mean she is not beautiful

    Nice pic, but the airbrushing is ridiculously much, I know all three women and almost didn’t recognize them at once, especially Modupe Ozolua.
