It’s the bio of private Instagram profile, @celebface, that commands the most attention. “WELCOME TO REALITY,” it reads, in all caps, adding a disclaimer: “If you don’t want to see the truth, leave this page.” In reality, we all want to see the truth — especially when it comes to celebrities.
Celebface is one of the many — ironically, faceless — accounts that documents celebrity edits, unfiltered close-ups and, perhaps most voraciously, plastic surgery in a series of before-and-after posts. In each caption, the admin — protected by their anonymity or by the ‘private’ profile setting — casually reveals which stars removed their tags from an image or demanded it be deleted altogether. In the comments? A speculative feeding frenzy: who nipped, who tucked and who lied about it.
