A Japanese model named Vanilla Chamu has become an Internet sensation after she underwent more than 30 plastic surgery procedures to look like a real life French doll.
Chamu has facial features and skin tone that resemble a western woman and she posed for photographs with her long red hair and makeup that makes her eyes look big like a doll's eyes. She reportedly underwent several cosmetic procedures and spent 10 million yen, the equivalent to $102,000, Buzzfeed reports.
Photos of Chamu show her with an tiny waist and ample bosoms. However, other photographs prior to her cosmetic surgery procedures, show a rather ordinary Japanese teenager whose facial features and body shape are virtually unrecognizable from the looks she has today.
According to the report, Chamu began to have surgeries when she was 17 and plans to continue going under the knife to achieve the goal to become a "perdect" living French doll. Soon, she will reportedly undergo height lengthening surgery and bigger breast implants.
Chamu surely isn't alone in her interest to become a living doll. She is part of a wider "Lolita" trend in Japan that has spread around the world, where teenage girls are seeking to appear like anime characters.
Venus Palermo and Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova (who has been dubbed the most convincing living barbie doll) have also come under the spotlight. with some saying they are not real. Nonetheless, the trend to look like a doll seems to be spreading to all the continents.
Chamu created buzz on the web. People commented on Facebook that they were amazed at the plastic surgeons' job while others said she looks "odd."
"She was a very pretty girl before, and she does look sort of odd now but I think the surgery she has gotten has been done well and she still looks pretty in a totally different way. It is strange how she doesn't look remotely Japanese anymore," Facebook user Rhiannon Clare Taylor said.
"This is going to sound crazy, but this is the best plastic surgery I have ever seen. These doctors are like wizards. Was it necessary? No. Did they do a damn fine job? Yeah. There are celebrities with way worse!," Facebook user Erika Williams wrote.
