Kate Middleton is an icon of style, grace and beauty, and women have been trying to emulate virtually everything about her. Her hair, her wedding gown, her engagement dress - they've all been copied by adoring admirers around the world. But the obsession now goes way beyond fashion. Some women want the Duchess of Cambridge's nose. Jessica Blaier wanted it so badly that right after Middleton's wedding to Britain's Prince William in 2011, Blaier carried a photo of the duchess' face to Dr. Thomas Romo III, director of facial plastic surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan. She paid the plastic surgeon $12,000 to have him change her nose to look like Middleton's.  Jessica Blaier, right, paid to have her nose altered to look more like Kate Middleton's.) "Every time she smiled I was like 'Wow! I want my nose to be like that,'" the 21-year-old woman told "Good Morning America" in an interview that aired on the show.
Blaier said she's always felt that her nose was too big for her face, and she hated the way the tip dropped when she smiled. She said she's "thrilled" with the results of her procedure.
