Vocabulary Lesson of the Day: "Croydon Facelift"


(image via the Daily Mail)

Oh, those Brits and their funny expressions.

The Daily Mail has a wee story today about frightening celebrity Nicole Kidman and her terrifying "Croydon Facelift" (Croydon is a ne-chic-pas London suburb). Let's learn all about this strange phenomenon, shall we?
She continues to deny claims she uses Botox, but Nicole Kidman opted for another trick for ironing out unwanted wrinkles last night - the Croydon Facelift.

The pencil-thin Oscar-winning actress modelled the infamous hairstyle at a party held at the Omega flagship store in New York.

Her ginger mane was tied back so tightly back that the features on her face were pulled even more tautly than usual.

The term Croydon Facelift was coined several years ago - around the time 'chavs' began to emerge - and Little Britain's Vicky Pollard and Catherine Tate's teen Lauren are both fans...

Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham have sported the hairdo this year while Madonna, Kate Winslet and even Michelle Obama have also given the style a try.

Miss Kidman was seen with her auburn locks scraped back into a tight, high ponytail at a party at the Omega watches flagship store in New York on Wednesday night...

She credits drinking lots of water, eating fruit and doing yoga for her looks, insisting: 'I am completely natural.'

The mother of Sunday Rose has said: 'I have nothing in my face or anything.'

Oh, you have got huge enormous gall to say that that forehead is from water, fruit, and yoga, lady. On the other hand, that ginger mane of yours may have pulled back your skin so tightly that you are no longer capable of interpreting reality.
