Everyone meet Vanilla Chamu. She greets fellow Japanese people with a “bonjour” and claims to be from the Palace of Versailles. She’s not, of course.
She is a Japanese woman who has undergone ten million yen (S$120,000) worth of plastic surgery to look like a french doll.
She recently appeared on a Japanese variety show Watashi no Nani ga Ikenai no? (私の何がイケないの? or “Is There Something Wrong with Me?”), and shared that she had over 30 procedures done to herself.
She has said she intends to keep having surgeries until she has achieved her lifelong goal – to look like a French doll.
Let’s take a look at the fresh faced doe eyed Vanilla Chamu.
Vanilla Chamu as a teenager at 17 before any plastic surgery
Ever since Chamu was a little girl, she wanted to look like a French doll, which have long been popular in Japan. On the variety show, Chamu explained why she wanted to become a living doll, why she’s had over three dozen procedures, and perhaps why she’ll never be content with the way she looks.
In one of Chamu’s earliest plastic surgery transformations, that was still a resemblance to her original self.
One of Chamu’s earliest plastic surgery transformations
Vanilla underwent her first plastic surgery when she was 19 years old and keeps her current age a well-guarded secret.
Chamu’s transformation journey started because of her traumatizing experience when she was young. As a young girl, Chamu was teased for her appearance.
When she talked to her father about the bullying, her dad replied, “Well, you are ugly, so all you can do is suck it up.” Around that time, she saw a French doll and decided she wanted to look like one.
“There isn’t anyone who can look at a French doll and say they’re not beautiful,” Chamu said on the program.
Vanilla Chamu’s transformation to look like a French Doll
To save the money (S$120,000) for all her procedures, she’s worked as a hostess in Japanese clubs.
Still her current look isn’t enough for Vanilla in her quest to become a ‘perfect living French doll’.
She has recently had even larger breast implants fitted and her next procedure promises to be her most extreme yet as she plans to undergo height lengthening surgery.
Her unusual appearance undoubtedly makes her guaranteed to stand out in any crowd, and she has become something of a mini celebrity in Japan, making countless television appearances and launching a pop career.
Even if you don’t understand Japanese, you should be able to follow this documentary by Vice as they follow Vanilla Chamu on her plastic surgery journey in Tokyo.
