A young Iranian woman has reportedly undergone extensive plastic surgery in an effort to look like her idol, award-winning actress Angelina Jolie.
Sahar Tabar – whose age is unclear, with some reports claiming she is 22, while others state she is just 19 – has racked up more than 600,000 Instagram followers with selfies showing her extreme transformation.
Belgian news site Sud Info claims she has lost 40 kilograms, as well as undergoing 50 plastic surgery procedures in order to resemble the star.
Her face has apparently been moulded to match Angelina’s iconic high cheekbones and full lips, while she’s wearing what appear to be pale blue contact lenses to alter her naturally brown eyes.
But her look has not gone down well with commenters, with many people comparing her to a corpse, or a zombie.
“What did you do, you’re horrible,” one Instagram user commented, with another saying “you look like a mummified corpse.”
Another commenter called her a “Live Pinocchio,” while another said she “looks like a zombie”.
But there is speculation that it is not just surgery that’s led to her appearance, with claims that prosthetics, make up, and even Photoshop are behind the account.
Eagle eyed users have pointed to inconsistencies in the shape of Sahar’s nose from shot to shot, and to distortions in the images that point to photoshop.
Sahar has shared photos that include bandages, suggesting that some surgery has taken place, but it appears to have been supplemented with less permanent methods.
Hollywood Life has pointed out that there is a chance Sahar may be suffering from Body Dysmorphic Disorder – which leads to people obsessing over their perceived flaws, and often going under the knife to correct them.
As their unhappiness with their appearance pulls from the disorder, rather than any real physical blemish, however, those measures are often insufficient to increase a sufferers happiness – leading to more extreme measures.
