If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Kim Kardashian should be very flatted by Jordan James Parke, a 23-year-old British makeup artist who has spent $150,000 to look more like his idol — although he hasn’t quite hit the mark.
“I love everything about Kim,” he told The Sun. “She’s the most gorgeous woman ever. Her skin is perfect, her hair, everything about her.”
After first catching sight of Kim on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians a few years ago, Jordan set out to transform himself into a lookalike. To date, he’s gotten lip and cheek fillers, laser hair removal, Botox, eyebrow tattoos and veneers — so many procedures that he gets a frequent customer discount. Most recently, he got a vampire facial, just like Kim did in 2013.
Jordan admitted his look isn’t “natural,” but said that’s the point.
“I laugh when people try to insult me by telling me I look plastic or fake,” he said. “Do they think I’m going for the natural look? If I was, I’d ask for my money back.”
Jordan also tries to keep up with Kim Kardashian by collecting high-end designer bags, jewelry and clothes, which he shows off to his nearly 14,000 Instagram followers. He said a nose job is the next item on his plastic surgery wish list.
