The late, great comedian and writer Nora Ephron absolutely hated her neck. She actually named a book after it – I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman (2006, Knopf).
It’s why her signature look was a black Chanel turtleneck. “Our faces are lies and our necks are the truth. You have to cut open a redwood tree to see how old it is, but you wouldn’t if it had a neck,” she wrote.
I get it – especially now that I spend so much time on Zoom and Facetime – and am forced to notice my neck on a daily basis. It’s not terrible and I’m not ready for major surgery yet, but there is definitely some room for improvement on and around my neck and décolleté.
