Her first official portrait drew a mixed response, but Kate Middleton’s nose has topped the list of celebrity features most requested by people seeking cosmetic surgery. New figures have shown that the number of patients asking to look like the Duchess of Cambridge has trebled in the last year.
Other celebrity body parts also proved popular with patients in 2012, with Myleene Klass’s jaw line and chin and Cheryl Cole’s cheeks, admired for their dimples, among the most requested. For women seeking to change their appearance, the most requested pair of eyes were those of model Rosie-Huntington-Whitley, while the most popular lips came from X Factor judge and former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger.
The trend of taking inspiration from famous faces when considering cosmetic surgery, however, is not confined to women, as there has also been an increase in men wanting to look like celebrities. Robert Pattinson, star of the Twilight films, has the most requested chin and jaw, while Two and a Half Men actor Ashton Kutcher’s cheeks are also very popular. Also topping the wish list of desirable male celebrity features are Zac Efron’s hair and eyes, Jude Law’s nose, and Ryan Gosling’s lips.
The Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group, who have released these figures, told the Daily Mail that the number of patients asking for specific features of certain celebrities has increased dramatically, and that the trend seems to be for famous figures who are sophisticated as well as being naturally beautiful.
