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.
#2 Before and After
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 facialplastic surgery involved. Her chin looks narrower and her face more heart-shaped after becoming Barbie.
#3 Her Measurements
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.
#4 Plastic Surgery
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.
#5 Her Diet
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.
#6 Her Figure
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.
#7 Her Face
Valeria admits that she’s had plastic surgery done to help her look like Barbie. Her face however, is said to be her own. She uses heavy makeup to achieve a Barbie look. Valeria also wears blue colored iris-enhancing contact lenses on top of her natural green eyes.
#8 Her Hobbies
Her hobbies include meditation, spiritual practices and mountain hiking along with her husband. She believes that she’s from a different universe and that she can stop eating food and live off of solar energy. To each their own, we guess.
#9 Her New Diet?
When she does eat, Valeria is a vegetarian. She eats only blended shakes of raw fruits and vegetables to keep her waist trim. Now, she plans on giving up food altogether to live on sunlight. That’s right…sunlight.
#10 Why Barbie?
Ever since she was 5, Valeria has loved Barbie. She was fascinated by dolls throughout her life. As a child, she collected over 50 dolls.
#11 Life Before Barbie
Growing up, Valeria did many typical teenager things. She admits to being adrinker and smoker and was “fond of hard liquor”. In 2007, she graduated with a master’s degree from the Odessa State Academy of Constructions and Architecture in Ukraine.
#12 Barbie Met Ken!
Just as Valeria is a surgically enhanced Barbie figure, Justin Jedica is a Kenwannabe. In February 2013, Valeria flew to New York to meet him for a feature on “Insider Edition”. Barbie and Ken fans will be sad to find out that the two can’t stand each other.
#13 Ms. Diamond Crown
In 2007, Valeria took part in a beauty pageant, “Ukrainian Diamond Crown”. She won the title of Ms. Diamond Crown. The controversial beauty pageant only featured contestants that have had plastic surgery done.
#14 Personal Life
Valeria works as a photo model and is married to Ukrainian businessman Dmitry Shkrabov. She says her parents are “cool” and has a brother Ivan and younger sister Olga. Here, you can see the resemblance between mom and daughter.
#15 What Does She Do All Day?
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.
