Socialite to Sport Coke Nose on Game Face at British Royal Wedding
Former "Naughty Girl" T-P-T has no time to fix cocaine-ravaged honker for the big bash.
The royal nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton on April 29 is certain to be a fashion parade, as 1,900 titles and other bigwigs fill Westminster Abbey with bespoke suits and designer dresses, formal ties and tails, fabulous hats and hairdos. A bit of Botox and some last-minute nips and tucks will no doubt also be on display (or, hopefully, not). But pity poor Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, the famed It Girl of London’s go-go ‘90s, whose unique “what to wear?” predicament has become fodder for the city’s wedding-obsessed—and famously nasty—tabloids. T-P-T, as she is fondly known, has been shopping for a new nose, but to no avail. Her youthful days of fierce cocaine addiction came back to haunt her like a modern-day Dorian Gray. The powder consumed the wall of cartilage between her septum, causing her nose to collapse, and a botched rhinoplasty only added to her bashed-in look. As the Daily Mail snidely put it, “There’s no point in hiding it now.” The tabs have been tracking Tara's nose for years, but the spirited T-P-T has managed to keep her game face. "If I can get my nose fixed for the wedding that would be ideal,” she said. "I’m not sure it’s going to be possible, but hopefully something can be done in time."
