Have you ever taken a picture of a celebrity to the person who cuts your hair and said, "Here, make me look like this," only to end up having a haircut that looks nothing like that famous person? It’s embarrassing. Don’t do that sort of thing. Additionally, don’t go to your plastic surgeon (like, as if you "have" one on retainer or something) and said, "Here, make me look like this." That is weird! You are perfect the way you are! But apparently that sort of thing goes on, and the biggest trend in plastic surgery is getting a nose like Kate Middleton.
According to the New York Daily News, women in Long Island are desperate for noses like princesses.
“I love the shape and size of Kate Middleton’s nose and just knew I had to have it,” says Brianna Diaz, 26, an office manager from Long Island. Diaz is scheduled for her royal rhinoplasty in two weeks.
“I saw her nose a little while ago and now it is a huge thing for me, like an obsession and I just want to get it done,” she says.
Two years ago, Jessica Blaier, a 22-year-old NYU student, was flipping through People magazine in search of a new sniffer when she came across wedding pictures of the Duchess of Cambridge.
“When I saw Kate’s nose, I just knew it was the perfect nose for me,” says the premed student. “Other celebrities had parts of their noses that I wanted, but Kate’s nose had it all. The bridge swoops. The tip doesn’t fall when she smiles. And it’s feminine.”
So she ripped out two pictures of the Duchess, a head-on shot and a profile, and took it to Dr. Thomas Romo, director of facial plastic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital on the upper East Side, who knew just what she wanted.
“She wanted a nice, natural-looking nose that complemented her face,” says Dr. Romo, who estimates he’s already performed 100 of the $10,000-$12,000 procedures. A year later, Blaier walked out of Dr. Romo’s office with a nose fit for a queen.
I don’t even know if I have a joke about this! This is a weird phenomenon. Although I do admit that I’d like someone to give me Channing Tatum’s arms. Maybe not on my body, because they would look funny, but just, you know, to hang out with. That’d be cool. But only if the rest of him was attached.
