Igor and Grishka Bogdanoff – fashion victims
Twin brothers Igor and Grishka Bogdanoff (or Bogdanov) are famous French celebrities. They are often called freaks, not only for their scientific machinations, but also for their specific appearance. According to rumors, numerous plastic surgeries caused facial deformities.
The boys were born in 1949 in France. They claim that their parents came from aristocratic Russian and Austrian families, and that their maternal grandfather was African-American tenor Roland Hayes.
More than 30 years ago, they were widely known in France as TV hosts. Their shows like Temps X (and more recently Rayons X) were about popular science and science fiction, space, distant stars, aliens and attracted a large number of viewers.
The career of Bogdanov brothers before plastics was connected with a grandiose scandal. The book God and Science, which became a bestseller in France, was criticized by the American cosmologist. The Bogdanovs were accused of plagiarism, ignorance of the elementary foundations of physics and mathematics, and the success of the book was explained by skillful juggling with complex scientific terms. The scandal was hushed up, and in 1998 the brothers defended their Ph.D. theses and continued to be engaged in pseudo-scientific research.
The Bogdanovs’ case was actively discussed in the scientific community for several years, and the National Committee for Scientific Research in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of France recognized the work of the brothers as profanity. This did not prevent the brothers from assuming the post of heads of the cosmology laboratory at the non-state university Megatrend in Serbia in 2014.
The brothers were very popular and wanted to look better. They said that plastic surgeons didn’t help them to look “more handsome”. But just have a look at their photos. A person couldn’t transform so much without any “help”! They look like aliens, they used to report on! In the 1990s, they had their first round of plastic surgery. According to some fans, the transformation of their faces is not the result of plastic surgery, but the symptoms of a complex genetic disease.
“We have already stopped paying attention to gossips”, they say. “Some say that we were operated to look like aliens, others say that we are the aliens. This is ridiculous!”
“The strange thing is that we never resorted to the help of plastic surgery. I wonder why everybody asks us about this?”
Igor Bogdanov married Amelie de Bourbon-Parma, direct descendant of King Louis XVI. Wedding celebration took place at the legendary Chambord Castle on the bank of the Loire. Until 1947 the castle belonged to her family. Around 100 guests from the worlds of politics and culture, as well as representatives of the European aristocracy were invited. Besides, his wife is 34 years younger. From the previous three marriages Igor has 6 children.
Girls and boys don’t be silly. The time will come and you will realize that beauty is inside. Sorry for the banality:)
