Kate Middleton's Nose Wins Acclaim and Envy
She has her prince, a designer wardrobe, enviable hair and even a baby on the way.
None of those things are what mere commoners most want from Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, however. What they want is her nose.
Middleton, 30, the wife of Britain's Prince William, can add another notch to her royal crown. Her nose is the most popular celebrity look-a-like feature in the U.K. for 2012, according to data from the Transform Cosmetic Surgery Group, one of England's top cosmetic surgery centers.
Middleton, who announced earlier this month that she was pregnant with the couple's first child, also topped the list of the most requested female celebrity look overall, beating out stars and models like Cheryl Cole, Myleene Klass, Nicole Scherzinger and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who rounded out the top five, respectively.
"It's not surprising that Kate Middleton is the No. 1 requested female celebrity with cosmetic surgery patients," the center said in a statement. "Her long, glossy brunette hair, pearly-white teeth and perfect pins tick every box."
Though the survey results were just released this week, it's not clear when the survey was taken, before or after Middleton debuted her buzzed-about new bangs. Just days before being hospitalized for acute morning sickness, Middleton stepped out in late November at London's Natural History Museum sporting a new, layered look to her long brown hair.
She flaunted her bangs, and her now-publicly pregnant figure, most recently onstage at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year awards ceremony wearing a dark green gown reportedly by Alexander McQueen, the same fashion line responsible for her ivory and lace wedding gown.
Speaking of the royal wedding, one woman who did not make the plastic surgery list this year? Middleton's younger sister, Pippa, 29, whose scene-stealing figure in her white maid of honor dress at the 2011 wedding inspired its own cosmetic surgery trend, the "Pippa butt lift."
