Teen branded 'zombie' after undergoing 50 surgeries to look like Angelina Jolie
Sahar Tabar, a 19-year-old woman from Iran, has been the talk of the internet over the last couple of days due to her zombie-like appearance, which is a apparently the result of dozens of cosmetic procedures meant to make her look like Angelina Jolie.

We live in a world where super fans often go under the knife to make themselves look like their idols, but whereas most end up with doll-like features, Teheran-based Sahar Tabar looks like a real-life character out of a Tim Burton animation. She has in fact been compared to the "Corpse Bride", and looking at some of her Instagram photos, you can see that the comparison actually makes sense. It's obvious that the 19-year-old uses makeup and creepy contact lenses to enhance her undead look, but those prominent cheekbones, inflated lips and plastic-like nose seem to be her real features.

According to Al-Arabiya, Sahar considers herself Angelina Jolie's biggest fan, and "would do anything" to look like the famous Hollywood actress. She has allegedly undergone around 50 plastic surgery procedures to emulate some of Jolie's most iconic facial features, like her prominent cheekbones, plump lips and sharp jawline. Only she seems to have gotten a bit carried away in her quest to emulate the look of her favorite celebrity...

The number of surgeries hasn't actually been confirmed, so it's possible - if unlikely - that her peculiar looks have been rendered by make-up or even prosthetics, rather than a plastic surgeon's scalpel.

And with over 300,000 followers on Instagram, it's also possible, if again unlikely, that her looks have been Photoshopped.
