Unfortunately not everyone can be blessed with having killer curves, flawless skin, a designer wardrobe, perfect hair and millions of dollars to spend 24/7, but Kim Kardashian is obviously the exception to the rule. The selfie queen who first became famous from a sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J, has climbed her way to the top of Hollywood and is one of the most well-known celebrities now worth an estimated $85 million today.
And with all of the glitz, glamour and fame, comes a huge fan base…we’re talking over 59 million Instagram followers to be exact. Now a mom of two and married to one of hip-hop’s greatest artists in Kanye West, Kim Kardashian has men chasing her and women wanting to look like her over the world. It kind of makes us wonder if her self-obsessed husband is low-key jealous of his mega-babe of a wife’s fame…hmmm. I mean, millions of people are obsessed with the Kardashian brand thanks in large part to Kim and her somewhat controversial antics.
That's why you shouldn't be surprised to learn that people want to BE her. From a fan spending over $100,000 on reconstructive surgery to mimic the reality star’s perfectly-proportioned face to another risking her life by getting black market butt injections just to copy her out-of-this-world behind, these 10 Women Who Want To Be Kim Kardashian take it a little too far when it comes to trying to look like the reality princess.
10 Jordan James Parke - $150,000 Reconstructive Surgery
Not just women are changing their physical appearances to try and look like Kim K.; men are too. Jordan James Parke claims to have spent over $150,000 trying to achieve Mrs. West’s stunning look. The Britain native got Botox injections, laser hair removal, eyebrow tattoos and lip-plumping surgeries to try and mimic Kim’s look. That's a lot of effort to look like the selfie queen.
In an interview with The Sun, Jordan paid Kim nothing but compliments and said “She’s the most gorgeous woman ever. Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her.”
And although Parke has faced criticism and backlash for the cosmetic changes, he’s pleased with the way that he looks and wants to get even more more plastic surgery in the future. Speaking of more plastic surgery, he told Mirror Online: "I've had another nose job, a chin implant and jawline and neck liposuction. I just thought, you know what, I wanted it all done, so just get it done in one op." Wow.
Please. No more plastic surgery Jordan. You look fine the way you are!
9 Marlene Chinea - $10,000 Reconstructive Surgery
It’s no secret that Kim’s behind is her most famous ASSet, so famous in fact that people are getting plastic surgery to try and replicate the curvaceous socialite. “Kim is simply beautiful and anything she wears looks fabulous on her,” Marlene Chinea told The Daily Mail after she spent over $10,000 on re-constructive surgery to achieve Kim’s derrière.
After realizing that doing 300 squats a day still wasn’t going to give her the results that she wanted, the 36-year-old nurse underwent a Brazilian butt lift. "No matter how much exercise I did, I'd never get the results I wanted," she said. The process took over five hours and required four pounds of fat to be taken from various parts of her body and injected into her butt.
The Miami resident is happy with her results and had to buy a whole new wardrobe for her new look. “I was so excited with my new body that I was sure to buy outfits that Kim K. would wear,” said Marlene. Hopefully she can afford the clothes Kardashian wears! I hear those are pretty pricey.
8 Claire Leeson - $30,000 Worth Of Plastic Surgery
Being bullied in school led England native Claire Leeson to spend over $30,000 on plastic surgery in the hopes of transforming into Kim Kardashian’s twin. The 25-year-old’s obsession with Kim began when she started watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians and realized that she had several things in common with the reality star. “Friends would tell me that I had a resemblance to Kim. I watched [Keeping Up With The Kardashians] and realized I had the same amount of siblings and that we have the same kind of arguments and things going on,” said Claire in an interview with ITV.
According to the Daily Mail, she severely emotionally bullied as a child. "I was badly, badly bullied over my looks and it took me ten years to realise that I wasn't unattractive. I was so badly bullied that I didn't want to be alive anymore," she said.
Claire’s costly procedures to try and turn into the Armenian beauty included teeth whitening and breast enhancement surgery. She also has spent thousands of dollars on spray tans, clothes, hair extensions, makeup and even butt pads to mimic Kim’s famous behind.
7 Verity Sandford - Was Inspired To Lose 100 Pounds
We can now add inspirational to Kim Kardashian’s resume as the reality star’s stunning good looks were enough motivation for England native Verity Sandford to lose more than 100 pounds. "I had the perfect Kim K shape, but its full potential was hiding behind rolls of flab," Verity told The Sun.
In an interview with The Sun, Verity said that she placed pictures of Kim all around her house as motivation for her to get into shape. “When I decided to lose weight, Kim was the inspiration that kept me going because I absolutely adore her style,” said Verity.
She added: "I absolutely adore her style. I stuck pictures of her on my wardrobe and my fridge to keep me motivated. I downloaded two pictures on my phone of her and pasted them together with the word “inspiration” written down the middle and saved it as my screensaver."
Verity credits following a Weight Watchers plan for her significant weight loss and now can fit into clothes she only dreamed of fitting into before. Having a very similar skin tone and hair color to Kim, since her 15-month weight loss, Verity has said she’s gotten much attention from people on the internet complimenting her on her Kardashian-esque look.
6 Kamilla Osmon - Dubbed The "Walmart Version"
This next Kim Kardashian look-alike will definitely make you do a double take. Kamilla Osman’s uncanny resemblance to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has helped the blogger gain over 150,000 Instagram followers, along with some haters that dubbed her the “Walmart version of Kim Kardashian.” That's pretty offensive to say the least. Not sure about Walmart. She's pretty stunning in her own right.
Besides having nasal reconstructive surgery due to a deviated septum, Kamilla has only had one other surgery which was lip reconstruction. Kamilla told Entertainment Tonight that she thinks that Kim is “one of the most beautiful women in the world,” but at the end of the day she wants to be known as herself. She's probably the only person on this list who still wants to be "herself." All physical characteristics aside, Camilla admits that Kim is much more “calm and collected” than she is.
"Me, I'm more like a storm," she told ET. "I have a few talents and I hope to show the world soon -- that's probably more in music and fashion industries."
5 Georgina Burton - In Debt Just To Look Like Kim
Paying the price to look like Kim Kardashian isn’t cheap and has caused several of the reality star’s fans to go into debt while trying to achieve her flawless look. Georgina Burton first started idolizing the famous and curvaceous mom of two when she began watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Who hasn't? I mean, look at the most popular Kardashian. She's perfect in many ways.
Georgina realized she had similar traits with the reality star but wanted even more. “I might be in a bit of debt but I look more like Kim than ever,” Georgina told The Sun of her decisions to follow through with the body-changing procedures. A bit in debt? Is it really worth the financial headache? Apparently, it is.
And it looks like the UK hairdresser’s two boob jobs, veneer and teeth whitening procedures may one day pay off her debt as she was accepted into the Susan Scott look-alike agency after submitting her transformation photos. I don't know. I don't really see the similarities...
4 Thalia Almodovar - Transgender Look-Alike
Transgender makeup artist Thalia Almodovar has spent over $100,000 in her efforts to resemble Kim Kardashian’s killer looks. That's a lot of dough to look like the biggest reality star on the planet. $100,000 - that's like buying several cars over a lifetime. Thalia began transitioning from a man to a woman when she was a teenager and claims that she didn’t realize right away how much she looks like the famous selfie queen. “I don’t see myself in the mirror as transgender, I just see myself as a woman. I have always been very feminine since I was little it's not like I was a football player so I don’t think it's astonishing that I look like Kim," she told The Mirror.
Well she definitely has the butt down pat.
Since her transition, Thalia has gotten butt implants, has spent thousands of dollars on clothes that match Kim’s style and gets regular collagen injections. Thalia told The Mirror looking like Kim boosts her self-confidence saying "it makes me feel better about myself. I love being mistaken for Kim." No surprise there. Being mistaken for one of the world's biggest stars will do that to one's confidence!
3 Tatiana Williams - Received 100 Bum Injections
Woooah. It’s well known that Kim Kardashian has a huge fan base, but many don’t know that some of her biggest fans have risked their lives to look like the E! reality star. In an interview on the ITV talk show, former entertainer Tatiana Williams revealed she received 100 butt injections from the black market.
"Going to the black market is a big risk. People can die from these injections. I've seen people eaten up by the silicone. I've seen them turn black-and-blue and not being able to walk anymore. I've seen people have their whole breast taken off. I've seen everything. It's cheaper on the black market and people are willing to take the risks to achieve the beauty," she said.
Seems a little excessive to me. Tatiana opened up about the fact that she went so far as to be an escort in order to fund her body transformation.
The lethal butt injections have added 60 inches to her backside and have sculpted her rear end to look like Kim’s. "I love Kim Kardashian's body - it's beautiful. She's exactly what a woman should be," Tatiana said when discussing her motive for the transformation.
2 Krystle McGill - Kim Down Under
Naming herself Australia’s Kim Kardashian, Krystle McGill set out to reach the same level of fame as Kim Kardashian. With the same olive skin tone, dark black hair and killer curves, Krystle bears a strikingly close resemblance to Mrs. West. The only thing she lacks are the big breasts, curvy hips, and an insane booty. So I guess you can say she has a lot of work to do before she can officially call herself a Kim Kardashian doppelganger.
Although the TV host/actress hopes to be as well-known as Kim is one day, she has refused any talk of going under the knife to achieve that status. Good for her. She's isn't willing to sacrifice her body and wallet for the sake of 15 minutes of fame. The Australian beauty seems to also have similar interests with the famous contour queen as she’s said to be in the talks of launching her very own cosmetic and clothing lines.
1 Kylie Jenner - Inspired By Big Sis
Last but certainly not least on the list of Kim Kardashian doppelgangers is none other than Kim’s very own sister Kylie Jenner. It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian’s style is out-of-this-world amazing, so no wonder the youngest Jenner sibling is trying to keep up with the Kardashian.
In an interview with People, Kylie revealed her two biggest influences of her fashion style were right in her own family. “The people who really inspire me style-wise are obviously Kim and Kanye,” the 18-year-old said.
Not sure about Kanye's fashion sense, however. Have you seen his Yeezy line? It leaves a lot to be desired.
Perhaps to copy her old sister’s luscious pout, Kylie also admitted to getting temporary lip fillers after much speculation from her fans and the media. Many have speculated Kim's lips, booty, and breasts as being fake. Perhaps they're right. Still, you can't debate Kim's beauty. Kylie's not too shabby either.
