She's been dubbed Catwoman because of her sharp, feline features, but 77-year-old Jocelyn Wildenstein has denied having cosmetic surgery to achieve her unusual look.
In her first interview in more than 20 years, the Swiss-born socialite told DailyMailTV that her Swiss background is the reason for her high cheekbones and long hair, with her fiance, Lloyd Klein, 50, even comparing his bride-to-be with French sex symbol Brigitte Bardot!
‘It’s wild. Usually when we go to restaurants or some French places, they go, 'Hi, Brigitte.' And I'm like: 'Actually you do, you do look like Brigitte',' Lloyd said.
'And I don't understand the whole press and the Catwoman thing because Jocelyn has always looked like that.
‘She never really did anything to change her face. I have pictures from her at 16 years old where she looks exactly the same as today.’
And when asked directly if she’d had any cosmetic work done, Jocelyn replied: ‘No, especially when we look back at my pictures.'
‘I think of course I am maybe more beautiful [back then].
‘When we are young there’s a certain freshness we lose with the years. But you still find the same eyes, same high cheeks, or same nose. I think I was more pretty.’
Jocelyn first became famous during her divorce from French billionaire art dealer Alec Wildenstein in the 90s and has since been dating Lloyd for the past 14 years – with the designer proposing last year.
