Billy Joel's Daughter

BUSTED at Fashion Week

2/9/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0208_billy_joel_daughterDoing her best Minka Kelly impersonation, Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley's daughter Alexa Ray Joel showed up to a fashion show in NYC on Thursday ... and proved she's not the girl she used to be just six months ago.

The 27-year-old has grown into quite the woman.

We're just sayin'.

Anyone who has taken the time to examine what Alexa Ray Joel is or has become or even examined or read the manner in which Alexa expresses herself on the issues of the day, would know that she is frankly far more than a pretty face, a sexy body, talented singer or the daughter of famous people. It is clear that the daughter of Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel is perhaps the best possible combination of the genes of her parents, and them some. Fact is that I have seen incredible transformations in people who have gone vegetarian or vegan literally transforming their entire appearance in 6-8 months, including people in my own family. I think TMZ is just reaching her to find reasons to be hurtful of people who are glamorous and soulful beyond their comprehension. Alexa Ray Joel is not a pseudo celebrity or fame seeking missile but her humanity is every bit as striking as her beauty and intelligence.

Oh please - you people are so off the mark with this- check out the makeup on the NOW that is NOT on the before and the boobs- honey this girl has had boobs for years - big ones. And her nose job was done years ago- stop trying to find stuff where there isn't any.

I would LOVE to know what all you people who are casting stones look like. Until you can post your pic here and are 110% sure you the best looking thing on the face of the planet, SHUT UP. She is beautiful. Anyone can see she has changed her makeup a bit and it makes her look different. And she has always been big busted if you have paid attention to her in the past. But then again, what should I expect from the same people who thought Pam Anderson was the hottest thing going. Talk about looking like a plastic tranny....

She looks a little like Tina Fey (especially around the eyes) in the newer picture. She was a cute young woman in the earlier picture--an attractive girl version of her not-so-attractive dad. People seem to be ridiculously hard on this kid because she doesn't look like her mother. Leave her alone!

Hey Everyone- TMZ & Bloggers... it's Alexa Ray here [I'm sure most of you won't believe that it's actually me on here, but hey, that's fine- no worries if you don't want to believe that. People are going to think whatever they want to- I'm just making my personal sentiments known]. I'd just like to say that I am quite mystified by this entirely irrelevant post-- and I have no idea why the idea of multiple plastic-surgeries is even being remotely implicated- nor do I understand why I am perpetually being accused of "self-hate" and of being a "plastic-surgery victim" in the media. I don't hate myself at all- and I don't have these insecurities about my appearance which the media and many bloggers seem to want to "sporadically project" upon me as if I'm this terribly insecure wallflower, constantly caught in my parent's shadow- and horribly and dramatically traumatized with low self-esteem as a result. I'm sorry-- but it's simply not the case. I was a very late bloomer-- YES-- and certainly a bit awkward when I was younger [the media has made it very clear just how awkward I was-- so, thank you for that]. However, I have definitely grown into my own skin [and that kind of work starts from within- NOT from plastic-surgery, might I add]. I embrace my natural looks and my body 100% now- there is no attempt to try to "fix" everything, by any stretch. Yes, I got my nose done- that's it. That was the only thing that bothered me- and hey, I dealt with it. I was completely honest, forthcoming, and wholly-open about this in the media-- I'm not the type to lie or cover things up. For better or worse, I'm pretty much an open book. People's looks can change over time- has anyone ever heard of hair/makeup/diet/aging? All of these varying factors can respectively add up to change a person's appearance to a certain degree. (Especially since I lost some weight and have recently gone completely organic/vegetarian since that last pic on the right [which was only taken last summer, by the way]. Also, has anybody ever heard of MAKEUP? Contouring and heavy on-camera makeup like I have here on the left [I need it for work- as I am a featured fashion-correspondent for JULIB.com] can completely alter one's all-natural appearance. In the right-hand pic, I have no makeup on [with puffy eyes]. (Yes, we all get them sometimes- and hey, that's fine with me!) I embrace and accept myself 100%. I'm sorry that the media and the majority of tabloid rags/bloggers have this incredibly skewed, presumptuous, and unsubstantiated idea of me as some girl who is so terribly unhappy with herself that she would go to such drastic lengths to alter her appearance. Sorry guys, but that just isn't me. Perhaps you're mistaking me for another girl. Don't aggressively displace hateful and judgmental comments upon people you don't even know who have done you absolutely no harm-- because that actually makes you ugly [and there's nothing more horrific than projecting ugliness from within]. Thanks for reading this message- written wholeheartedly in support of kindness, tolerance, peace, and non-judgement. (And perhaps I'm just fed up with nonsensical, superficial, bull**** tabloid-media reporting in general-- as a woman, I find it to be an increasingly degrading and sexist medium.) That being said: it's a free country- and everyone has a right to their opinion. I'm simply making my own opinion known. Respectfully & With Unabashed Honesty, Alexa Ray

Cannot blame her for fixing herself up, she was spawned from a beauty and a beast and got the beast's Toad-like face, Now she looks, touched-up but better.
