Mum Praises Daughter Who Makes Herself Look Like A 'Living Doll'

Teenager Venus Palermo is obsessed with looking like a 'living doll'.

The 15-year-old has become an internet sensation, thanks to her online video tutorials, which show other girls how to achieve her look, which is inspired by Japanese anime.

The teenager, who is known online as Venus Palermo, got herself dolled up (sorry) to appear on Daybreak to discuss her obsession, telling presenters Helen Fospero and Dan Lobb that she started dressing like a porcelain doll after a visit to Japan.

"'I was always like this, I liked to dress in frilly dresses and tie my hair in pigtails, then I discovered how and what I really want to be as a teenager," said Venus.

"A lot of people like the look and I want to help them achieve it."

Venus has 78 videos on her official YouTube page - including makeup tutorials and nail art. Her Facebook page boasts over 13,000 fans.

Venus' mum, Margaret told Daybreak she is fine with her daughter dressing this way, saying: "I would be horrified if she came home pregnant, I am not horrified if she is innocent and good girl who likes cute clothes and frills and ribbons.

"I am absolutely fine with that, her face is already doll-like and if she likes the style I am fine with it, I would be more worried if she came home drunk or smoked."

Venus says she dresses like a doll everyday, but says it only takes her 15 minutes to achieve her 'look', using powder, light pink eyeshadow, mascara, lip liner and gloss.

You can see Venus' online tutorials on her official YouTube channel.

Well, it certainly gives new meaning to Cliff's classic Livin' Doll!
