High School, 1997 (above, left): “People say, ‘She’s had her lips and her nose done.’ Look at this photo. Tiny nose, huge lips. My lips look bigger here than they do now.”

Teen Choice Awards, 2008 (above, right): “I always put my chin down in pictures. It just makes your face look a little skinnier. My face tends to appear somewhat oval.”

Vera Wang Show, 2011 (above, left) “Contour is so important. I always have a light shimmer strip down my nose and above my lip. It really brightens up the face.”
