And one fan wrote: 'I'm shocked! She looks like Chucky's sister! What happened to growing old gracefully ? Never expected this from Stella.'
However, others pointed out that the designer's different look could be the result of the lighting, with Stella lit from above so as to cast dark shadows across her face in the photo.
Others speculated the effect may have come from makeup contouring.
