Meet Valeria Lukyanova, the Real-Life Barbie Doll

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Singer Valeria Lukyanova was a naturally pretty girl from the Ukraine who decided to transform her entire appearance into a real-life Barbie doll and describes herself as the most famous woman on the Russian-language internet. Have you heard of her?

Lukyanova claims she uses makeup alone to achieve her doll-like looks, and other than a breast enhancement, has had no other plastic surgery but lives on a liquid-diet to keep her exaggerated doll-sized proportions. But even on an all-liquid diet, her waist to hip ratio just seems inhuman. She also claims that her photos aren’t photoshopped or enhanced, which I find to be far from truthful. Because even with the best makeup, lighting, and camera lens, skin just doesn’t look this smooth and plastic.

I think what intrigues me the most are the size of the blue iris’ in her eyes, which I can only imagine she achieves through the use of anime style contact lenses. {scroll for more below the photo slideshow}

There are plenty of people who go to extremes when it comes their appearance and body modification, but this seems to fall into a different category entirely. Valeria is not aiming to look like a tiger, lizard, or a vampire, which are all obviously other-worldly, her goal is to look like a doll that children play with. As many other girls begin to follow this doll-look-alike trend, I wonder what message, if any, this sends to young girls or other women as far as beauty is concerned? Though I’m sure Valeria Lukyanova is just doing what makes her happy and not trying to be a role model, with access to so much imagery at our fingertips these days, it’s undeniable that she will affect the thoughts of others in both positive and negative ways.

This Valeria Lukyanova Makeup Tutorial demonstrates how you can achieve a doll-like look.
