Nadia Bartel went into hiding for six weeks after a leaked video showed her snorting white powder at an illegal party in Melbourne.
And the former WAG’s nose took centre stage yet again on Tuesday night as she returned to Instagram with a sultry comeback video.
The clip showed Nadia, 36, modelling different outfits from her latest Henne fashion collection, but fans couldn’t help but notice how different her schnozz looked compared to photos taken just a few years ago.

The tip of her nose appeared more refined and lifted, while the overall shape looked flatter.
Nadia underwent nose surgery in November last year, but it’s unclear what procedure she underwent.

‘Hi everyone, I have let you all down by my actions. I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future,’ she wrote.

Bartel and three other women were each fined $5,452 after footage from the party was accidentally posted on Instagram by her friend and business partner Ellie Pearson.
But the most humiliating part of the scandal was seeing Nadia, once known for her impeccably clean-cut image, snorting a line of white powder off a $1.50 Kmart plate.
While she wasn’t charged with drug offences because police couldn’t prove what she was snorting, the video nonetheless caused irreparable damage to her brand and she was dropped by major sponsors.

She managed to pocket some cash in the wake of her scandal with one major brand offering her a $50,000 ‘golden handshake’.
A source within the lucrative ‘wellness’ industry claims Bartel was quietly given the five-figure settlement by vitamin company JSHealth in exchange for dropping any affiliation with them after her scandal.
Bartel had served as a spruiker for the brand which – under her original contract – had agreed to pay the former WAG and lifestyle influencer a total of $250,000 for a long-term social media campaign.
