Meet the real-life Ken & Barbie
Move over, Barbie and Ken! These real-life fair-haired friends have gone to great lengths and expense to recreate your iconic looks
HIS startlingly white smile is so bright it looks as if it would glow in the dark. Tear your eyes away from those teeth and you see the perfectly golden tan, puffed-up pecs, bulging biceps, and abs so flawless they look as if they’ve been handcrafted. Which they have – as has the rest of Rodrigo Alves. The 34-year-old’s appearance seems so perfect he looks as though he’s made of plastic – and that’s exactly the look he’s after. He’s the Human Ken Doll, after all. Rodrigo, a former flight attendant from Brazil, has dropped an eyewatering £450 000 (R7,65 million) so far on a whopping 60 plastic surgeries in his quest to look like Barbie’s beau. Rodrigo, who’s heir to several properties in Spain’s Puerto Banús, was recently snapped frolicking on the beach with Danni Levy (31), star of British reality show Life on Marbs, which focuses on people who live and work in Marbella, Spain. The blonde bombshell maintains her incredible physique is all down to a strict training regime – but she’s able to give her medically altered pal a run for his money in the six-pack department. With their matching blonde locks, glowing tans and super-toned bods, the duo look like Barbie and Ken brought to life in their skimpy black swimwear. Rodrigo recently wanted to go under the knife again for a gastric bypass – surgery usually done only on dangerously obese people – to help him achieve his toy idol’s famously toned torso. But Danni supposedly persuaded Rodrigo, who’s already had six-pack-sculpting surgery and pec implants, to get the look in the gym rather than the operating theatre. “Since I decided not to have a gastric bypass I’ve been following a diet and a strict gym regime with Danni while we’re filming an upcoming TV reality show [which is all about fitness],” the platinum-blond Brazilian recently told Mail Online. With Danni’s guidance, Rodrigo has been spending up to two hours a day hitting the weights – and he’s so chuffed with the results he bought his training buddy a £1 000 (R17 000) wig from
