There have been many speculations regarding the effects of rhinoplasty cosmetic surgery on the personalities and self-images of those who go through with them.

One only needs to look at her pictures to know that her claims to being an au naturale girl are a bit of a stretch.

She’s perhaps even more eccentric and eye-catching now than she’s been since she hit the scene in 2008, testament to what a good nose job can do.
