Versace model turned Kim Kardashian

Being just 17 years old when she first started her journey toward surgeries, Jennifer Pamplona had no idea of turning herself into Kim Kardashian. She eventually got addicted to surgeries (yes, it’s a thing) and started turning herself into a look-alike of the American socialite Kim Kardashian. The Versace model started small but then led to bigger surgeries including three rhinoplasties, butt implants, and fat injections.

Jennifer Pamplona soon discovered her body had dysmorphia and that she wanted to return to her former self as soon as possible.

The procedure left the model “bleeding from the cheeks” for three days with a sense of dread. “I thought I was dying. I was thinking to myself, ‘What the hell have I done with my life?’ “ the model is reported to have said.
