Jocelyn Wildenstein, formerly celebrated for her beauty, has become an 81-year-old socialite known for her extensive pursuit of youth and allure through multiple surgeries.
Hailing from Switzerland, Jocelyn’s life took a different path at 17 when she encountered a film producer, providing her the chance to launch her film career. However, after relocating to Paris with her partner, their relationship unraveled, leading Jocelyn into a vibrant and party-centric lifestyle. Over the next thirty years, she changed partners frequently, steering clear of marriage.
It’s believed that Jocelyn’s initial decision to undergo surgery was influenced by her spouse’s fear of aging, as he was determined to maintain a youthful appearance. Starting with the removal of under-eye bags, Jocelyn underwent blepharoplasty, aligning with her husband’s desire and striving to preserve her own youthful looks.
Following this, Jocelyn embarked on a series of additional facial modifications, including skin tightening, injections administered by beauticians, and implants for the chin and cheekbones. Some accounts suggest her aim was to achieve a cat-like eye shape to stay appealing to her husband, while others assert it was solely her personal desire to appear youthful.
Despite receiving substantial financial support from her ex-husband, including a reported $2.5 billion settlement, Jocelyn’s wealth didn’t endure. By 2016, she claimed to be nearly destitute, sparking rumors that she had bestowed her fortune upon cosmetic and plastic specialists.
Interestingly, despite her dramatic transformation, Jocelyn refuses to acknowledge any errors or imperfections in her youthful pursuits, maintaining a steadfast self-perception of beauty.
