First ladies are often looked to as fashion icons. However, one Houston mom seems to have taken that admiration to the next level after having a grand total of nine surgeries done to look like first lady Melania Trump.
This is not a drill.
Claudia Sierra, 41, really committed to her vision, completing an eye lift, fat grafts in her temples and cheeks, rhinoplasty, breast implants, a tummy tuck, liposuction on her thighs and back, and a Brazilian butt lift, according to KTRK-TV.
Sierra then completed her transformation by getting hair extensions and tackling her wardrobe so that she could present more like Trump.
“I know that I’m going to get a lot of criticism,” Sierra told Inside Edition, the news station notes. “I keep hearing that I need psychological help. That I should not want to look like anyone else.”
According to KTRK, Sierra, a breast-cancer survivor, said that she made the decision at a breaking point. The divorced mom of two said that she was feeling insecure after radiation. One night last year, she went on a date and was stunned when her date asked how old she was and then requested to see her driver’s license.
“I handed him the driver’s license, and he looked at it and he goes, ‘You look a lot older than that,’ and that was it. That was the straw that broke the camel’s back,” Sierra told the news station.
Sierra said that she wanted to look like Trump, not because of her beauty but because of her poise and grace in the face of criticism.
“I chose this to show women to not be afraid to come and to fix whatever they want to get fixed. It doesn’t matter what anyone says as long as it makes you happy, and I am genuinely happy,” she said.
