Has gorgeous Nigella fallen for plastic surgeon's knife?

It's disappointing and sad to think that such a beautiful woman feels the need to change her face, writes Carol Hunt

'Looks like an ad for Phantom of the Opera" was one of the kinder comments below pictures of celebrity cook Nigella Lawson, in a British newspaper yesterday. Nigella was spotted leaving her London home looking like an old, out-of-shape, bag lady. Not a scread of make-up in sight and hair that looked as if it had been dragged through Beechers Brook.

But sure, we've all had days like that and there's no law that says one of the most beautiful and successful women in the world, the idol of men – and women, count me in! – everywhere, has to look Hollywood-ready when she's off duty. It's one of the things we love about Nigella, despite being marvellously posh totty, she always seems like one of us.

No, the extremely worrying aspect of Nigella's appearance is that she was wearing what looks like huge protective adhesive strips under her very red and bloated eyes, and her beautiful lips look, well horribly puffed up. She looks tired and down and lethargic. She looks like a girl who is past caring. It's not a pretty sight. These sort of medical strips are usually used as a treatment for puffy swollen eyes, but why does she need them?
