|The real life Barbie Valeria Lukyanova|
With a pair of big glassy eyes, a tiny waist, straight platinum blonde hair and large breasts Valeria Lukyanova proves herself to be a living Barbie doll at her 21-year-of age. She has become an internet sensation in her home country of Russia, claiming on her blog to be the most famed woman on the Russian-language internet. Her doll-like features, long blonde hair and ‘perfect’ body make her look like a real life Barbie.
Lukyanova claims to be the “the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-language Internet.”
In fact, with her physical appearance she bears such a resemblance to the famed plastic doll that cynical web users have been speculating about whether or not she is real. In a spoof video posted on YouTube an animated version of the model undergoes surgery to enhance her already prominent assets.
The girl checks into a plastic surgeons office. As she lies on an operating table, the ‘surgeon’ uses a hand-held pump to enlarge her breasts, before giving her a face-lift using putty and a chainsaw.
Horrified viewers have slammed the model over her looks. One commented: She looks not only ugly, but ridiculous while another wrote: ‘A woman with completely perfect features is a boring woman.’
Others were kinder to the blonde beauty. One asked: ‘Isn't unhealthy obsession on looking like a Barbie doll a part of her identity though?’ But the big question remains unanswered: Is Valeria real or is this an elaborate Photoshop hoax? More ‘normal’ photos on her Facebook page of the 21-year-old wearing far less make-up suggest she does exists.
Valeria has 155 subscribers following her profile on the social networking website – double the number of friends she has at 78. One fan, a man named Firtina Seymen has ‘liked’ virtually all of her photos and written ‘beautiful’ underneath them. Photos have also been posted on her blog, on which she writes about making music and meditation. According to NMA.TV she is seeking out followers in France and elsewhere in Europe.
