Paula Abdul has been flaunting a stylish new look during this year’s holiday season.
On Wednesday, American Idol judge Kathy Hilton, 60, delighted fans on Instagram with a collection of pictures taken at her star-studded Christmas party.
Paula Deen’s celebrity friends praised her ‘incredible’ looks, yet many of her admirers questioned if photoshopping or heavy filtering had been done prior to sharing the images online.
Paula donned a sheer green dress featuring sequin detailing and her brunette locks were left loose as she posed alongside Heidi Klum (49), Charlie’s Angel icon Jaclyn Smith and other celebrity guests at Paris Hilton’s mom’s holiday party.
On Instagram, Paula shared pictures taken at her holiday gathering with her fans and captioned them with: “@kathyhilton always throws the best holiday parties – Merry Christmas!”
“I hope everyone is having an incredible day celebrating with friends and family. Sending you lots of love and holiday cheer!”
Kathy’s daughter Paris wrote alongside Paula’s update, “Love you!”
Simon Cowell’s ex Terri Seymour added, while Ru Paul’s Drag Race star Mrs Kasha Davis commented: “You look absolutely incredible as always!”
Though Paula’s famed fans were eager to discuss how the 60-year-old star achieved her youthful look, those less well-off were more interested in discovering how she achieved it.
One Instagram user commented under Paula’s pictures, “This looks like a completely different person!” Another asked if her account had been compromised – or “Who am I even looking at?”
Another person exclaimed, “Wow – heavy on the photoshop!”
Another comment reads, “Paula, cut back on the filters! Your skin is beautiful – don’t need that much extra enhancement!”
One Instagram user jokingly inquired, “Is this Paula’s daughter?”
Paula has previously discussed ageing and opting for minimally invasive plastic surgery to fight wrinkles as she gets older.
In 2019, the star revealed her desire to “age gracefully with a healthy outlook”, reflecting on two changes made after she celebrated her 57th birthday.
“I wanted to do something for myself,” she explained to People magazine when discussing her treatments with InMode, a minimally invasive plastic surgery company.
“I have multiple spinal cord injuries and paralysis, leaving my arms with weakened muscles. No matter how often I worked out at the gym to rebuild muscle tissue, it was always difficult.”
“When I learned about InMode’s BodyTite and FaceTite, the difference was amazing – though subtle.”
Singer and dancer Paula achieved fame through choreographing music videos for Janet Jackson, before going on to top the charts with several hit singles of her own.
The multi-talented star was one of the original judges on American Idol from 2002 to 2009 and has since appeared on reality TV shows such as The X Factor, So You Think You Can Dance and The Masked Dancer.
