It is always said that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder; we live in an era where societies and individuals have been conditioned in the society to believe in certain beauty standards, most of which are cannot be achieved by many. The shape of our body, nose, and jaw line is considered a critical component of our net worth now.
Unfortunately, we have seen many individuals go under the knife to come at par with the beauty standards set by the world of media. One such example is of a 20-year-old Gabriela Jirackova, who has spent $45,000 on plastic surgery to make herself similar to a Barbie doll.
She is a singer and model by profession and is from Prague. She says that all these surgeries have saved her life. She was obsessed with princesses from a young age and would do anything to become one.
The singer cum model stated that she used to wear a full face of makeup every day from the time she was only 13 and at the age of 17, she used the money she’d saved from singing performances to get a breast enhancement surgery. The surgery was for her to jump from D-cup to an H-cup. However, that was not the end for her. So, she had another surgery done this year and went up to J-cup.
In addition to, the breast enhancement surgery, the Barbie lover got lip and jaw line fillers that she has to redone every few months. Gabriela also gets regular Botox treatments to make sure that no wrinkles show up on her forehead. However, she enjoys this high- maintenance lifestyle and says that it helps her feel alive.
The 20-year-old has amassed more than 67,000 Instagram followers and not surprisingly, many are complimentary about her looks. However, when it comes to guys, they usually take their appreciation a step too far. One time, a guy she took a selfie with started a false rumor online that they were having an affair; while on another occasion saw a coffee shop manager had his family harass her with messages begging her to marry him. She regularly gets proposals from men to “buy” her as their wife, as well. According to her, some men end up getting obsessed with her.
Gabriella decided to go forward with so many surgeries because she was always obsessed by Barbie. She always believed that beauty was the key to success in life, and especially in love.
In a recent interview, she said, “I have always loved princesses and from an early age, I knew that looking beautiful was important for every successful woman who wants to find a prince. In fairy tales, the prince will never choose an ugly princess.”
She explained, “I do not deny that the Barbie doll is a great inspiration to me but it’s more than just about her appearance, I am inspired mainly by what she portrays. She motivates girls all over the world to achieve their dreams.”
Gabriella faced “cruel bullying” in school which is why she felt suicidal at only 9 years old. However, after finding support from her loved ones and undergoing surgery, she felt stronger, confident and hopes she can help other girls in the same way.
She said, “I want to travel the world to motivate and inspire all the girls who dreamed of being princesses that they can be as beautiful as they want to be. I want to establish and develop a foundation that will help children suffering from bullying in a very concrete way against a system that currently fails to protect them.”
