Someone really wanted to look like the First Lady.
There's homages to your favorite celebrity ... and then there's stuff like this.
Claudia Sierra, a 42-year-old from Houston, reportedly shelled out over $50,000 in order to replicate the look of First Lady Melania Trump down to a tee. In what might be seen as the most unique support of the President and his inner circle yet, Sierra had eight plastic surgeries in order to get her body to conform to her vision: to look exactly like Donnie's wife.
"I want to feel like the First Lady that I know I am inside," Sierra stated, via a press release for ABC’s Inside Edition. "Melania for me illustrates power and strength; she is our First Lady and I am looking forward to more closely resembling her and becoming a better version of me and for it to show on the outside." These cosmetic changes are also something she hopes can allow her the freedom to enjoy life to its fullest again. "I was getting rejected by men and it was killing my soul. Nobody was picking me," Sierra told the New York Daily News. "So I said, 'Let me change everything because I don’t want any part that’s been touched by anyone'."
Sierra admiration of Melania's perfection and her quest to feel better about herself came after a battle with breast cancer - one that resulted in a partial mastectomy. Following that harrowing experience, she went to a top Houston plastic surgeon and underwent the physical transformation, a process that included liposuction, a Brazilian buttock lift, eyelid lift, breast reconstructions, a nose job, Botox, fillers, and other injectable treatments. The craziest part is that she got all that done at once, over the span of one 10-hour block. Newsweek added that Sierra utilized hair extensions, blue eye contacts, and a spray tan to darken her skin tone, which were all non-surgical moves to enhance the look.
"I’m labeled as that sick girl, but I’m not. I’m a healthy, happy person," Sierra said. "I’m not mentally unstable. I knew what I wanted to do for me. Unfortunately, we don’t know how long we have here, so while I’m here, I wanted to be happy and I wanted to shine." Do you think she overdid it? Let us know in the comments.
