Jessica Alves – formerly known as Rodrigo, The Human Ken Doll – has marked one year since transitioning to female by posing for a striking photo shoot.
The star, 37, dazzled while dressed in good vs. evil styling for the shoot, before she told MailOnline: ‘My sex change is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself’ before branding herself ‘elegant with a hint of sexy without being vulgar’.
In January, Jessica, who became known worldwide for a surgery addiction that saw the star spend £500,000 to alter their looks, came out as a transgender woman.

Speaking to MailOnline on her year anniversary, Jessica said: ‘It has been one year this month that I started my transition from male to female and I am feeling great…
‘I just got few more steps to finalise my transition which involves hormone therapy, monthly physiological assessments and blood tests monthly to check my hormone levels and my general health.’
Gushing over the life changing work, she said: ‘It is a wonderful feeling to be a woman, everything now makes sense in my life now when I wake up and looking my self in the mirror I see the real me what I was always meant to be which was tramped inside a body of a man….
‘For the past 36 years I tried my best to be man and even which the help of plastic surgeries I had fake six pack, fake biceps and a wide square chin silicone implant, but I failed badly because I was constantly unhappy…

‘I have never had body dysmorphia disorder what I had is gender dysmorphia but I was just afraid to transition.’
On the support of her family, she went on: ‘I have a wonderful and supportive family who loves me unconditionally including my late father who died 2 month ago…
‘Even my mother said that she prefers me as Jessica because I look and I sound much happier and that makes her happy….
‘I know a lot of people around the world and I had few close friends which aren’t friends of mine anymore, they could not cope with my transition and the friendship no longer exists…

On losing work through the change, she said: ‘My TV jobs also decreased by half few tv shows that I was booked to take part off canceled after my transition as they did not know how to work with me anymore after I became a woman.’
With romance, Jessica went on: ‘I am single and ready to mingle, I m looking for adventures and life experience and to meet a man who makes me feel like a real woman. What kind of woman am I?…
‘I am elegant with a hint of sexy without being vulgar, I am glamorous but not tacky, I am curvy but not fat, I am intelligent and sassy but really sensitive. I cry very easily.’
At the time on announcing her choice to transition into a woman, Jessica said: ‘I’m known as Ken but inside I’ve always felt like Barbie’, in news that came after she had been secretly living as a woman for three months.
The star, who had hormone injections to achieve feminine hips, joyously said that her ‘body matches my mind’ after coming out as a woman.

The transition surgery meant she received silicone breast implants, ‘face feminisation surgery’, Adam’s apple removal, jawline shaving and a chin modification, as well as having her penis and testicles removed.
She said: ‘I love it and everything that comes with it – going to nice hair salons and getting my nails, eyebrows and eyelashes done. Buying dresses and high heels and wearing sexy lingerie’.
Jessica admitted that she used to dress in her mother’s clothes when she was a boy growing up in Brazil, and also had an inclination towards more feminine toys.

She also said she had breasts as a child due to her body producing more oestrogen than the average male.
Jessica also made the heartbreaking admission she was bullied and sexually abused at school, saying she was ‘feminine and weak’ and couldn’t fight back.
The shoot comes days after the plastic surgery fanatic revealed she has been banned from dating app Tinder for allegedly ‘violating protocols.’
Jessica said she felt ‘discriminated against’ after she claimed her account was suspended permanently after just 24 hours on the site – although Tinder has since confirmed Jessica’s account has been restored.
Speaking exclusively to MailOnline, she said: ‘I am still single and looking and even working on a dating show for Netflix but due to COVID things are a bit slow. So I tried to use Tinder and after 24 hours on it my account was banned and suspended….

”I had a lot of messages but I was chatting to one man, tall, blond, muscular and independent and before I could give him my number my account got suspended.
‘I then contacted Tinder via email and they said that I can’t never use Tinder again because I have violated their protocols when I clearly haven’t done nothing.
Musing on the possible reasons for her ban from Tinder, Jessica continued: ‘I was probably reported by users thinking that my account was fake also. Now I wonder is it because I am a trans woman that I got suspended?
