As the daughter of Billy Joel and Christie Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel may never have to worry about money, but apparently the 28-year-old singer/songwriter was very concerned about her appearance.
It's hard to believe, but that's Alexa on the right and the left.
Must have been all those years of the world unflatteringly comparing Alexa to her model mother that drove her to so dramatically alter her looks.
Alexa's transformation is one of the most surprising since the Heidi Montag plastic surgery bonanza that involved her undergoing a shocking 10 procedures in one day.
As with Heidi, reviews of Alexa's new looks have been decidedly mixed.
Across the Internet, most seem to agree that Alexa is more traditionally pretty post-operation, but many also feel her appearance has lost some of its quirky charm.

Yeah. Pretty intense.
For better or worse, she now resembles a slew of generically attractive aspiring actresses, while bearing little resemblance to the Alexa Ray we knew.
No word yet on how Alexa's famous parents feel about the changes in their daughter's appearance, but it's hard to imagine Billy isn't the slightest bit offended.
After all, Alexa went to such great lengths to look less like him. That's gotta hurt.
