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. <!–more–>
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.
Valeria says she’s only had one plastic surgery to achieve her look. When asked, she said ” I had breast implants because I want to be perfect.” Well, that’s as good a reason as any to go under the knife. Her surgery made her breasts two sizes larger.
Though she only claims to have one surgery, her body just doesn’t look natural. Plastic surgeon Dr. Alexander Teplyashina weighs in with his opinion. He says it’s possible she’s also had a rhinoplasty, or nose job.
To keep her waist so tiny, Valeria lives on strict diets. She went on a juice-only diet for four months to detox before switching to a water diet. Talk about dedication to her cause.
Valeria lives on a liquid-only diet. In the past, she has also done a raw meat diet. She credits raw meat to helping her stay thin all year long. We’d credit raw meat to being thoroughly disgusting.
What everyone wants to know is how Valeria got her Barbie-like proportions.She maintains that she has only had one plastic surgery; her breast augmentation. Apparently, the rest of her body is natural. To achieve her ridiculously tiny waist, she works out at the gym every day.
When some people have waist-trimming surgeries, they can elect to have the false rib removed. Controversy has surrounded her waist size. Experts just don’t see how it’s possible for her waist to be so slim without having some ribs removed. We quite agree. Whether they’re right or not remains to be seen. Valeria’s keeping mum about any waist alterations.
So what does Valeria do all day? In her traditional job, she’s a photo model. Other than that, she says a typical day involves waking up, working out, and then surfing on the Internet all day. Of course, she’s also a teacher at the School of Out-of-Body Travel.
Valeria is contemplating a move to America. She and her husband are currently based in Odessa, Ukraine where the rest of her family lives. As mentioned earlier, this Barbie’s got another Barbie friend: Olga Oleynik. Olga’s boyfriend is in the U.S. and Valeria’s husband can expand his business into the American market.
