Influencer Ashten G. has made headlines for her striking resemblance to reality star and media personality Kim Kardashian. With more than 40,000 dollars invested in various cosmetic procedures, including breast surgery, buttock lifts, and a series of treatments such as fillers and Botox, Ashten has successfully transformed herself into a lookalike of the celebrity.
Encouraged by a stunt double of veteran director and actor Clint Eastwood, Ashten saw the potential financial gain in pursuing a career as a Kim Kardashian stunt double. However, as her followers grew and urged her to create her own brand, Ashten set out to develop a more extreme look, breaking away from her label as a mere lookalike.
"People have been telling me that I bear a striking resemblance to Kim Kardashian since my late teenage years," Ashten told thesun.com. "It's a comparison I hear almost every day when I'm out in public. And the truth is, if you look at our baby or teen pictures, we share many similarities.
Our parents also come from similar ethnic backgrounds, which could explain our resemblance."
The Cost of Beauty
Ashten's boob job alone cost 14,000 dollars and increased her breast size to a 34E. She invested the same amount of money in a rhinoplasty, resulting in a completely transformed nose.
D Despite regularly going "under the knife," Ashten claims that her waist is 100 percent natural and attributes her hourglass figure to a strict diet consisting of fruits, vegetables, and fish, avoiding meat, sweets, carbohydrates, and alcohol.
"I took this as an opportunity to pursue my own look, which was bigger boobs and a bigger butt, going beyond what Kim has done," Ashten explains. "So, the money I spend on maintaining my looks or achieving my look is not to look like Kim but to look different."
Building an Empire
With almost half a million followers on Instagram, Ashten has now become a full-time influencer, enjoying the finest things in life. From traveling worldwide with all expenses covered to promote high-end resorts and captivating events, Ashten has exceeded her own expectations in her career.
"I'm so lucky to have had the opportunity to travel worldwide, all expenses covered, to promote lavish resorts, exquisite eateries, and captivating events," Ashten says. "I could never have anticipated receiving invitations to publicise a high-end resort located across the globe, a Greek restaurant, or host events at Formula 1 racing venues scattered throughout the world." "I didn't care what other people thought. I just wanted to be me. Move on from the Kim K lookalike label and build my own empire of fans," Ashten adds.
