One Fan Spends $30,000 to Look Like Kim Kardashian

Jul 19 2014 - 9:00am

Superfan Claire Leeson has made it her goal to look like Kim Kardashian [1]. How much did it cost to make her dreams happen? Just over $30,000 so far (about £18,000). Claire began her transformation after drawing parallels between her life and Kim's from watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians. The two have the same number of siblings and compatible personality traits. She recently told her story on the This Morning show [2].

Constant bullying during her teenage years also led Claire to want to change her appearance. Since then, she has undergone breast augmentation, teeth whitening, and hair extensions to look more and more like her idol. She's also gotten spray tans and makeup to get Kim's golden glow. It's clear she has similar contouring and brow-shaping skills as the Kardashian clan, too, wearing Kim's signature smoky eye and lash look. Claire even wears pants with silicone butt pads.

Claire isn't the first person to go under the knife to mimic a celebrity. Justin Bieber [3] also has a fan look-alike in Toby Sheldon [4]. Claire admits that this is only the beginning of her metamorphosis. She hopes to get permanent bum implants in the future.
