Claire Leeson is in extreme debt after spending more than $30,000 dollars to look like her idol, Kim Kardashian. She’s had a boob job, wears $700 ‘bum padding’ (but is hoping to have fat transplants soon), and keeps her Kardash-tan topped up on the reg. Now, she’s been summoned to court, and admits her parents are a tad worried, but looking like Kim makes her feel too good to give up.

A Brazilian man who is an exchange student in Korea has spent over $3,000 on eye surgeries so he can look more Korean. His fascination with surgery was sparked during his exchange, and he now goes by the name Xiahn. “Koreans have many surgeries to modify the shape of their eyes and become more like Westerners. I have no regrets, and I don’t intend to have any more procedures,” he reckons.

For most of us, at one time or another, we’ve wanted to look like Miranda Kerr (whether it’s her long limbs, glowing skin or cherubic cheeks). South Korean model Hong Yuh Reum took her fan-girl status up a notch by enduring multiple operations on her eyes and nose to emulate her idol. She wears blue contacts, dyes her hair honey brown, and mimics Kerr’s makeup and dress sense. Reum told Japanese TV special ‘Alien Virus’, “It really struck me when I first saw [Kerr] in a magazine. She has a baby face but she's very sexy. I knew I wanted to be like her!”

Mike and Matt, twins from Arizona, were determined to succeed in the movie biz and believed their faces held them back. They wanted to look like Brad Pitt, and went on MTV’s I Want A Famous Face to undergo rhinoplasty, chin and cheek implants and porcelain veneers. You be the judge…

Anyone who hasn’t seen or heard of the Human Barbie, Valeria Lukyanova, has been living without wifi for the past few years. She claims to only have had a nose job and breast implants, and that the rest is just down to diet and exercise. To clarify, she practises ‘breatharianism’ – a diet consisting of light and air. Yeah…

Texan woman Kitty spent $25,000 to look more like Jennifer Lawrence, after the birth of her first child left her feeling a little… off. She spent years saving up for the operations – including a boob job, liposuction, rhinoplasty and fat grafts to plump her cheeks – even though her husband doesn’t really feel one way or the other about the American Hustle actress.

Last October, it came out that a 33-year-old LA songwriter had spent over $100,000 to look like tween idol Justin Bieber (sweeping bowl cut and all). “It’s Justin’s smile that gives him his youthful look,” claims Toby Sheldon. Yeah, that and his actual youth.

Donna Marie Trego has kind of a legitimate reason for spending over $100,000 on cosmetic surgery… she’s a Lady Gaga impersonator. “There’s a lot of Gaga lookalikes and it’s really competitive,” Trego admits.
