Nowadays, a great number of people would go to great lengths to enhance their appearance and that is the reason why plastic surgeries are becoming a common practice everywhere in the world.
Valeria Lukyanova is not an ordinary woman. This Ukrainian beauty is dubbed ‘Human Barbie,’ and the truth is that her resemblance to the most famous doll is uncanny.
Valeria first caught the attention of the people of Russia, where she lives, when she won the worldwide beauty contest ”Miss Diamond Crown of the World” in 2013. All of a sudden, she found herself in the center of attention and everyone wanted to learn more about her. She was featured in various magazines and did plenty of commercials, but she only gained worldwide attention after she started posting photos and videos of herself on the social media and her story was covered by Huffington Post and ABC News.
”At first, I really didn’t like it because there was too much attention. Some people even followed me, secretly taking my photo. That I don’t like. But then, with time, I got used to it. People always want to take my photo. I don’t refuse it now,” she told Cosmopolitain.
Once her photos vent viral, many assumed she had undergone surgeries to alter her appearance or that she at least used photoshop, but Valeria denied those claims. Instead, she explained how she keeps her figure fit in a YouTube video, titled “Doll’s appearance is not everything.”
“It is hard work for many years and good genes… I do not drink, I do not smoke, and I lead a healthy lifestyle, my goal is powered by prana,” she said.
Valeria’s diet consists of plenty of fruits and vegetables, mainly raw, because she is a vegetarian. ”I really like all kinds of vegetables and especially broccoli. And regular cabbage and cauliflower. I always make myself salads out of them. I also really like nuts, but I don’t eat many of them because they are very high-calorie. For fruit, it’s grapefruit and apples,” she told Cosmopolitan.
Today, this 29-year-old human doll has plenty of social media followers and is involved in modeling. In 2017, she starred in the horror film The Doll alongside celebrities like Mindy Robinson and Ron Jeremy. At the same time, she holds a bachelor’s degree in architecture.
Valeria is married to Ukrainian businessman Dmitry Shkrabov.
Asked if he gets jealous of all the attention she gets, Valeria says, ”No, he’s fine with it. He treats it as my aesthetic image. He’s totally fine with it.”
Although she goes with the nickname ‘Barbie’ on social media, Valeria believes that the comparison to the doll sometimes feels ”a little degrading and insulting,” but she’s also aware that her resemblance to Barbie was what made her famous. ”When people look for me, they look for me with that hashtag, so. I’m the most popular [Barbie] copy in the world. When people say ‘Barbie,’ it’s clear that it’s associated with me, not anyone else. So that’s why I use that hashtag — so people can find me this way,” she explained back in 2015 in an interview with Cosmopolitan.
She also said that her goal has never been to promote an unrealistic body image. ”For me, beauty is the harmony of features and lines. Subtlety and sophisitication. Harmony of the external and internal. It is sincerity, kindness, power, and generosity that comes from within. All of these qualities are inspiring, and it changes your exterior. It’s a charisma”, she told InStyle.
Valeria often posts photos of herself without any makeup on, and we believe she looks very beautiful.
