Why could Mrs. Forestier not recognize her friend Matilda at the end of the story?

Matilda had to work very hard to lead her life. She had become a strong, hard woman, the crude woman of the household. In fact, she had started looking old. One Sunday evening, when she was taking a walk in the Champs Elysees, she met Mrs. Forestier who still looked young and pretty. As Matilda had started looking old and haggard, she couldn’t be recognized by her.
