Should we call this inferiority complex or too much money to waste? Claire Leeson has spent almost £20,000 in a bid to look like her heroine, reality TV star Kim Kardashian.
Undergoing a vast array of cosmetic procedures and even wearing pants enhanced with silicone to replicated Kim’s famous derriere, Claire Leeson said she transformed her life after watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2009.
Claire, who spends £4,500 on her hair extensions alone, says the drastic steps she has taken to appear more like the Kim, 33, are an attempt to gain self-confidence after being severely bullied in her childhood.
