The Week in Style

TWIS has been away, but it’s back! Here’s the week’s best around the Internet to keep you entertained and in style.

The Eyes Have It

How much are you willing to change to climb the career ladder? Julie Chen, co-host of the U.S. television show, “The Talk,” revealed she had plastic surgery to make her eyes seem “less Asian” after a former boss suggested that her Chinese-American features would be a professional roadblock.

Julie Chen shared photos before and after Asian Blepharoplasty (also known as Double Eyelid Surgery) to make her eyes look bigger. Doesn’t it look like she had Rhinoplasty too?

While the words stung, she believes having the surgery altered her course – for the better.

“I don’t like to live with regret. I did it, I moved on. No one’s more proud of being Chinese than I am, and I have to live with the decisions I’ve made, every decision I’ve made — it got to where we are today.” – Julie Chen
