How Tammy Hembrow is transforming into Kim Kardashian

Tammy Hembrow made headlines across the world earlier this month after she was carried out of Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party face down on a stretcher.

And while the 24-year-old model’s relationship with the Kardashian-Jenner family remains uncertain following the incident, it seems she is nonetheless determined to imitate Hollywood’s most famous socialite: Kim.

The Australian model’s Instagram account is filled with photos that seemingly prove she is transforming herself into the popular Kardashian sister, as she copies everything from her racy outfits to distinctive poses and even holiday destinations.

Tammy, who boasts 8.6 million Instagram followers compared to Kim’s staggering 116 million, has been sharing eerily similar photos to her idol in recent months.

Just like Kim, the Gold Coast-based mother-of-two is blessed with a famously curvy derrière – and she isn’t shy about showing it off on social media.

Tammy frequently strips down to her underwear to snap mirror selfies, a style of contemporary photography  widely regarded as one Kim’s trademarks.

In fact the 37-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has even released a coffee table book dedicated to the art, titled Selfish.

In one particular photo, rising star Tammy strikes the same seated pose as Kim while admiring her own reflection.

The younger model also appears to be taking style tips from the reality TV queen, as they have been seen sporting similar outfits and haircuts.

Interestingly, Tammy shared a near-identical photo several months later – although it appears to be a throwback snap, meaning it could potentially have been taken before Kim went on holiday.

However, there’s no denying the Aussie upstart has been inspired by the American superstar’s unique sense of style – namely the sweatsuit-and-sneaker ensemble that has become her signature look.

Back in April, Tammy posted a pictured of herself wearing white tracksuit trousers and a matching hoodie as she kicked back on board a plane.

Fans will of course know Kim frequently travels in the same laid-back, luxe look – as demonstrated by a remarkably similar Instagram post from 2017.

Meanwhile, Tammy is a doting mother to two young children – two-year-old daughter Saskia and three-year-old son Wolf – who she shares with ex-fiancé Reece Hawkins.

And it seems she could even be taking parenting tips from Kim when it comes to posing for Insta-perfect family snaps.

Kim is well-known for sharing images of her children – North, Saint and Chicago – on social media, and Tammy has a similar habit of documenting every detail of her kids’ lives.

Tammy became an overnight celebrity after being hospitalised at Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday party earlier this month.

On Thursday 9 August, she was pictured being stretchered out of West Hollywood nightspot Delilah just before midnight.

For unknown reasons, she was carried out face down on a gurney by paramedics.

Following the incident, it was reported that several members of the Kardashian family – including Kim – had unfollowed her on Instagram.
