The Kate Middleton Effect has spread to surgeon's tables. No, the Duchess of Cambridge hasn't gotten plastic surgery (that we know of), but her face is evidently a point of reference in plastic surgery offices all over the UK.
In fact, Middleton's nose is the most-requested plastic surgery procedure in the country, reports the Daily Mail.
Sure, we knew people wanted to look like her--buying clothes and shoes she favors and maybe even getting similar haircuts, but who knew her selling power would actually inspire people to change their face?
A spokesman from the Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group, who released the study, told the Daily Mail that they’ve seen a huge rise in requests to resemble celebrities and that "People are choosing celebrities who are sophisticated and naturally beautiful."
The Duchess certainly fits those parameters. While going under the knife is a little (a lot?) extreme, we get why people would want her elegant, approachable good looks. She is the UK's "most naturally beautiful woman" after all.
Other oft-requested celebrity facial features in plastic surgery offices include Cheryl Cole’s cheeks, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s eyes, and Robert Pattinson’s jawline.
