It is a matter of huge concern when a young teenager styles herself as a living doll and millions of teenagers across the world vie to mimic Venus Palermo's Barbie looks.
Passers by can easily mistake Venus for a Barbie doll given her life-size china figure, porcelain pale skin, perfect blue eyes that are framed by thick, dark lashes. Even her mouth is as perfect as a rosebud. Extremely cliched but real nonetheless.
15-year-old Venus not only lives the life of a doll, she also dresses herself up in pink colour-coordinated dresses and accessories and gets herself clicked and uploads her images on the internet. She has gained a cult following around the world, reports Daily Mail.
"At last count, Venus’s free internet TV channel had around 30,000 viewers, and her social networking pages 20,000 followers," revealed the daily.
Venus even has her own online tutorials that are followed closely by other British girls who want to mimic her looks. The video clips have been viewed more than 10 million times already.
Venus was quoted by the daily as saying: ‘I get lots of messages from young girls. They tell me they love the way I look and they want to be like me.’
