Jocelyn Wildenstein has shared a throwback photo of herself in a bid to 'prove' she's never had plastic surgery.

The 82-year-old socialite is often dubbed 'Catwoman' due to her distinctive appearance and cat-like features.

But while this is widely believed to be a result of having undergone extensive cosmetic surgery, Wildenstein has famously denied ever going under the knife.

Instead, she credits those signature cheekbones and her long, luscious hair to her Swiss background.

Wildenstein regularly shares photos of herself with her 1.1 million Instagram followers, but it seems there's a bit of disconnect between these and the images taken of her whilst out and about.

You see, many people believe she uses heavy filters on her social media snaps. However, Wildenstein has accused people of Photoshopping her pap pics, claiming her Instagram images are authentic.

The jury's still out on who's telling the truth, although the socialite seems determined to prove she's being honest.

Taking to Instagram earlier today (23 February), she shared a photo of herself as a teen, writing: "#tbt that’s me #jocelynwildenstein at ballet classes in Switzerland at 15 years old.

"So maybe you should stop speculating on my image! Press stop! Stop please and stop photoshopping my images because you are all [100 percent] wrong.

"Stop posting fake images of me."

She added, "You will be able to watch the true image of me very soon on screen," suggesting the long-rumoured documentary about her whirlwind life is set to happen in the near future.

But people aren't buying it, with one commenter writing: "If she tell any more fibs, her nose is going to grow VERY VERY long!"

"You can tell, she just aged gracefully... and I’m the queen of England," said another, while a third asked, "I’m all for cosmetic surgery but why lie about it?"

Alongside the surgery debate, Wildenstein's fame grew after her high-profile divorce from billionaire art dealer Alex Wildenstein.

She is now engaged to her fashion designer fiancé Lloyd Klein, who is more than 30 years her junior.

Back in 2018, the pair spoke with DailyMailTV where they denied the surgery claims.

When asked if she'd ever gone under the knife, Wildenstein told the outlet: "No, especially when we look back at my pictures - I think of course I am maybe more beautiful [back then].

"When we are young there's a certain freshness we lose with the years. But you still find the same eyes, same high cheeks, or same nose. I think I was more pretty."

Meanwhile, Klein, now 56, explained: "I don't understand the whole press and the Catwoman thing because [she has] always looked like that.

"She never really did anything to change her face. I have pictures from 16 years old where she looks exactly the same as today."

He later added: "Look, Jocelyn is beautiful, she's magical. The first time I met her, I was almost mesmerised by the beauty, the eyes, the personality.

"And I work in fashion and I see all these supermodels, and I see everyone, and I see the most beautiful women on the runway, right? But Jocelyn, has something to offer that not a lot of women have."
