Kim Kardashian is one of the most popular celebrities in the world, thanks to her reality show success and marriage to one of the most celebrated hip hop artists in the industry. Moreover, she has a great figure, and has many men and women across the world going the extra mile to try and achieve something similar. One of the men is 23 year old, Jordan Parke. He is said to have spent more than $150,000 to look like Kim.On why he chose Kim Kardashian, he offered, "I love everything about Kim. She's the most gorgeous woman ever. Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her." And to look like her, he has put his body through some pretty painful procedures. The following is an excerpt of a report on this by the Sun.
"His obsession started after watching Kim's reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Since, he has had lip and cheek-fillers, laser hair removal and eyebrow tattooing. He has had more than 50 painful lip-filling procedures, at £350 a time, and regularly has Botox injections in his eyes, eyebrows and forehead."
Apparently, he is addicted to lip-fillers and wonders why everyone tries to make him feel as if he is 'fake,' stating, "I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake. Do they think I'm going for the natural look? If I was, I'd ask for my money back."
However, Thalia Almodovar, who has the curves to match is a more natural Kim Kardashian look-alike. Having been born male, she is a transgender who has spent around 100,000 dollars on plastic surgery and enhancements to look like the KUWTK star. On why she chose Kim, she offered the following while speaking to Barcroft."I think Kim Kardashian is absolutely stunning, she is gorgeous. I love the shape of her body, I think she is beautiful and I admire what she has accomplished... I began transitioning in high school but I didn't tell anyone... 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 its not like I was a football player so I don't think it's astonishing that I look like Kim."
In contrast to the daring measures the aforementioned individuals have gone through to look like her, Kim Kardashian apparently uses some pretty low-tech DIY tricks to accentuate her curves. According to her recent interview with GQ, she pointed out that many people speculate that she has breast implants, for example, but in reality, she doesn't. Apparently, she tapes them to suitable positions. This is how she does it as reported by the site."Everyone thinks I have fake boobs. But it's all an illusion. I tape them up. You just take a piece of tape, and you start it at the bottom, under your boob, and then you go up…up…up, and then it raises…raises…raises, until you get it where you want it. And then, once [your cleavage is] at the level that you want, you stick [the tape] here," she says, smacking herself over the shoulder. Sounds tricky. Also painful. Ripping extra-strength tape off your nipples, that is. "It kills," she says. "There's nothing worse. And I usually get spray tans, so when you take off the tape, it takes off the spray tan, so I have to go to the Korean spa and get a full scrub."
