Meet the Real-Life Barbie Doll
Meet 27 year old Valeria Lukyanova from Ukraine. She's become famous worldwide as the "Living Barbie". Her body and her face bring to mind the classic girls' doll.
Sounds weird that anyone would want to actually look like Barbie, right? You'd think so, but no. Valeria is not the first to use cosmetic enhancement to look like Barbie. Others include Olga Oleynik, a close personal friend of Valeria's.
This is what Valeria looked like before her transformation into Barbie. She admits that she's had work done, but not on her face. Honestly, when we look at these two pictures side by side, we're not too convinced there wasn't facial plastic surgery involved. Her chin looks narrower and her face more heart-shaped after becoming Barbie.
To complete her transformation into Barbie, Valeria has dyed her hair a bleached, peroxide blonde. She also applies thick makeup and has contact lenses to get the look. Her wardrobe consists of skimpy attire as well.
Valeria is 5' 7" tall. Her measurements, in inches, are 34.6-18.5-34.6. Sounds tiny by anyone's standards. So how does that compare to Barbie? Well, if Barbie were a real person, her measurements would be 39-18-33.
Not only does Valeria superficially look like Barbie, her figure is also proportionate to Barbie's as well. Valeria weighs in at a measly 45 kg, or 99 lbs. This would be cause for concern for any of us but the previously 42 kg (92 lbs) Valeria was worried about her weight gain.
