The brunette beauty’s cheeks looked full and plump with no sign of the eye-catching defined cheekbones she had sported on the runway, as well as the downturned lips with the bottom lip much more fuller.
In the image, the mother of three looked pretty in glasses with no makeup on and her signature long brunette tresses sleek and loose around her.
The movie star grinned ear to ear in the Instagram image she posted on Friday, January 29, 2021 with the caption: ‘A lot of testing went into this group hug. Loved being part of the @fendi show with you @ctrulington and #kate moss. Thank you @mrkimjones,’ adding a heart emoji.

Within minutes of Demi’s appearance on the couture catwalk – for which she modeled a plunging black satin blouse and large statement earrings – Twitter had been flooded with questions from perplexed users about the Striptease star’s new look.

Questions: Other social media users queried whether her transformation had come as the result of ‘terrible’ makeup , which appears to be the case
Upset: One social media user expressed concern for Demi, suggesting that she had transformed her face because she was struggling with her ‘confidence’
‘I wouldn’t have thought that was Demi Moore without the headline,’ one user wrote in reaction to a news story about the actress’s surprise catwalk appearance. ‘Is that all bad fillers? Or is there some horrible contouring happening there also?
‘That face just doesn’t look right but I can’t figure out if it’s all plastics or of the makeup artist was doing something odd.’
Another cheekily wrote: ‘Demi NoMoore plastic surgery! That’s a shame! I wish women would allow themselves to age gracefully.
‘It’s so much more attractive than when they start messing with their face.’
Makeup magic: Demi (seen left in February 2020), 58, sparked rumors that she’s had plastic surgery when she showed off a dramatic new look in Paris on Wednesday (right) but it now appears to be due to over contouring and makeup
‘Demi Moore unfortunately who used to be beautiful is now just a poster child for why not to get plastic surgery,’ said one comment.
One person expressed their upset over Demi’s changed appearance, commenting: ‘This is total self destruction. This is painful insecurity. This is total lack of confidence. What in the world would make you do that to your own face?’
Others simply voiced their shock over the images of the Striptease star on the runway, with many admitting that they didn’t initially recognize Demi.

Way back when: Demi (pictured left in 1993 and right in 1996) has long been known for maintaining incredibly youthful looks, having been in the spotlight since the early 90s
Rumors: The actress was plagued by reports in the early 2000s that she’d had $250,000 worth of plastic surgery ahead of her appearance in Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle (pictured)
Shut down: Demi (pictured in July 2020) denied the surgery reports in a 2007 interview, insisting that she had ‘never’ gone under the knife for a cosmetic procedure
‘I cannot believe this is Demi Moore,’ someone said, while another agreed, writing: ‘That can’t be Demi Moore. I had a huge crush on her.’
The latest images of Demi reveal a very changed appearance that that seen in the candid snaps the actress has been sharing from home throughout the pandemic – many of which have shown her with no makeup on while lounging around with her family.
Demi has long been known for her age-defying looks, and has often stunned with her ever-youthful appearance and impressively trim and toned physique, which she has maintained for decades.
However this is not the first time that she has had to face rumors about whether she has undergone cosmetic surgery.
It was widely reported almost 20 years ago that Demi had spent nearly $250,000 on plastic surgery to complete transform her face and body ahead of her appearance in the 2003 movie Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle, however she shut down the reports as nothing more than speculation, insisting in 2007 that she had ‘never’ had any cosmetic surgery.
‘I don’t like the idea of having an operation to hold up the aging process – it’s a way to combat your neurosis,’ she said at the time. ‘The scalpel won’t make you happy.’
During a 2019 interview with the Daily Mirror, Demi said that she is ’embracing’ the natural aging process, despite admitting that there were times when she looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize herself.
‘Gravity is going in some directions I’m not fond of. I can look in the mirror occasionally and say, “You’re lying, I don’t look like that,”‘ the Ghost star explained.
Confusion: Twitter was flooded with posts about Demi’s new look, with many remarking on her unrecognizable appearance, while others asked what was behind it
Speculation: Many Twitter users questioned whether Demi had undergone plastic surgery, while others suggested that her dramatic new look may have been due to ‘horrible’ makeup

‘But I feel for myself it’s about acceptance… embracing it and no longer looking for what’s wrong – just being accepting of everything.’
The mother-of-three’s appearance on the runway comes after a low-key few months for Demi, who has spent much of the pandemic hunkering down at home with her family.
Despite the controversy over her new look, Demi certainly stood her own during the fashion show while modeling alongside A-list fashion stars like Kate Moss and Bella Hadid.
Demi’s enviable figure was accentuated by the plunging neckline of her black silk blouse, which nipped in at the waist, and left her decolletage and shoulders bare.
Her long bell-bottom sleeves covered her hands, while the peplum finish helped to emphasize her curves.
The form-flattering blouse was paired with matching wide-leg trousers, and Demi’s look was completed with some plain black shoes, and some very large statement earrings that dangled down to her armpits.
She also modeled a chunky cuff on her left ear that sparkled under the glare of the spotlights – which also helped to accentuate Demi’s pronounced cheek bones and plump pout.
Her youthful-looking complexion was given an extra boost courtesy of some simply yet chic dewy make-up.
Sticking to the rules: Demi sensibly covered her face with a mask as she left the show following her catwalk appearance

The fashion icon, 47, was one of Jones’s muses for the latest collection, and one of his best friends, and the publication notes that she modeled his clothing at Charleston, in the March 2021 issue.
‘It’s quite a challenge,’ said Antoine Arnault, the LVMH group head of communications and chief executive of Berluti, who has known Mr. Jones since they worked together at Vuitton.
The businessman told the New York Times: ‘Mr. Jones is one of our superstars. When you have a top footballer on your team, you want to let him play to to his full potential.’
Ralph Lauren, Giorgio Armani, Raf Simons and Hedi Slimane have all made the leap from menswear to womenswear.
