15 year old Venus Palermo is a living, breathing doll. Not kidding. The computer savvy daughter of a single mother, her doll character VenusAngelic has garnered an online audience of over 10,000,000 viewers on her 85 YouTube videos.
Venus naturally has a lot of doll like qualities in her look including porcelain skin, white blonde hair, a tiny rose colored pout, and enormous blue eyes, which is what first encouraged her to try out the look that has turned into her 24/7 style. “I like dressing like a doll and I think it is really important to have a personality and style, so I’m happy that I have found what I want to be” she says.
Venus spends around $200 per month on materials to perfect her look and about 40 minutes every morning getting ready for the day. And when the cameras are off, she’s still on. “I don’t even own a pair of sweatpants, I would never dress that way. If I want to be cosy, I will wear my frilly pajamas. I feel comfortable this way, I would not feel like myself if I dressed any other way”. You go girl.
Total freak? Not really. The girl speaks 4 languages (english, german, japanese, swiss french) and her mother states ‘Venus is an innocent girl. She doesn’t drink, she doesn’t smoke, she’s not even remotely interested in boys. She works hard at her studies. I would be far more upset if she was rolling around drunk in the street.” We’re glad she’s not rolling around drunk in the street too, but just give it a couple years and a few tempting internet stalkers…
