Russian Woman Aims to Become Most Realistic-Looking Human Doll

I don’t know why, but there seems to be a sudden surge in the obsession over Barbie-like looks on the internet. It was only a few days ago that we did a complete feature on five different doll lookalikes, and now we have news of one more such woman. 21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova is an internet sensation in her home country of Russia. Her popularity stems from the fact that she might be the closest anyone’s ever come to looking like a real live Barbie Doll.

Valeria looks very unreal, almost plastic. Her face is expressionless, and her body proportions are quite abnormal. It’s highly unusual to find a woman with a naturally tiny waist, a huge chest and plasticy-looking blond hair. Many speculate that Valeria is either a product of plastic surgery, or her photographs have been doctored by photoshop. The girl has no qualms about discussing her looks though, and refers to herself as the most popular woman on the Russian-language Internet, on her blog.

A spoof video on Valeria’s story is actually doing the rounds on YouTube right now. I watched it, but I didn’t really find it too funny. It’s a cartoon depicting the various plastic surgeries that Valeria may have undergone, such as using a chainsaw and some putty to reshape her face. In response to this video (you can watch it at the bottom of this page) Valeria left a comment saying it’s an exaggeration and that she just had her breasts done, everything else was given to her “by nature”. Valeria’s Facebook page is quite popular too, but not everyone has nice things to write about her. “She looks not only ugly, but ridiculous,” one reader commented. There are nice guys too, however, such as this one man who has liked and commented ‘beautiful’ beneath each and every photo of her. Some people, like me, think Valerie’s looks are pretty scary. How about you?

At the bottom of the page you’ll find a video of Valerie wearing very little makeup and saying something in Russian. I don’t know what she’s talking about, but I thought you guys might want to see what her face looks like without tons of makeup on.

    Well, I jus twant to say, that you’ve mistaken – Valeria is Ukranian and she lives in my hometown, Odessa.

    God, why Ukraine is such a hole?..

    What will this woman do as she ages? I can imagine that she is obsessed with looking like this and time is not kind to people who obsess over their youthful appearance. Sad, really that this is her claim to fame.
