Sahar Tabar came clean after photo experts accused her of creating the pictures with photoshop, after spotting blurring in the background of her pictures.
The 19-year-old explained that she created the “corpse bride” look through Photoshop and makeup effects.
“Now I can see that I have something in common with (Angelina Jolie), but I amuse myself, and to look like someone is not my goal.
“Over time I post a photo, I make my face more fun and funny, it is a form of self-expression, a kind of art,” she continued. “My fans know that this is not my real face.”
Showcasing skeletal cheeks and a pointy nose, in one photo she covered her brown eyes with shocking white contacts, as she pouts her plumped-up lips for the camera.
Sahar claimed she dieted so she could reach a weight of 40 kilograms to emulate her favourite star.
However, the online community made a mockery of the woman – who boasts more than 300k Instagram followers – with people saying she looked more like Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride than Angelina.
