What's With The Fish Lips?

Okay, I thought I was done posting and ranting for the day, but I remembered something from last night. We were watching 'The Wicker Man' (2006 version), and I was constantly distracted by this woman's pinned-back upper lip--



The night before I kept noticing the same thing with Dyan Cannon's lips. One of the worst cases I've seen is Lisa Rinna--

This is an increasingly common thing to see among entertainment industry women. Why are they mutilating themselves in this way?


I think it looks horrible and completely unnatural. When they talk, their lips don't move right, and it looks exactly like what it probably is--that their upper lip is pulled up and then sewn into place. I read on Dr. Tony Youn's blog that the worst-looking lips are probably the result of gore-tex implants. He's a plastic surgeon, so it's interesting to read his take on what work the celebrities appear to have had done on themselves--http://celebritycosmeticsurgery.blogspot.com/


Anyway, we used to pull our lips up and back like this to make a funny face when we were kids, and I imagine these women pay thousands of dollars to look that way permanently.


Overall, I think it's very sad to see so many women (as well as some men) overplasticizing themselves in this and a myriad of other ways. And the doctors involved have no problem taking their money for creating such a monstrosity.
