Living Barbie

Check out the photos of Valeria Lukyanova, who is a Ukranian model known as a Living Barbie” because of her doll like features, flawless skin, and Barbie proportions.

Lukyanova was flown from Odessa Ukraine to New York for an interview and fashion shoot with V magazine. Her popularity went viral  as photos Lukyanova circulated online. Some viewers doubted that the “look” was real, suggesting that either the photos were digitally enhanced or that the model had cosmetic surgery.

“Many people say bad things about people who want to perfect themselves,” Lukyanova responded, when pressed about accusations she has undergone cosmetic procedures or uses digital alterations to achieve her look:

“It’s hard work, but they dismiss it as something done by surgeons or computer artists. […] But I don’t take them seriously. I’m even flattered! It’s what success is like. I’m happy I seem unreal to them, it means I’m doing a good job.”

Another online sensation is Anastasiya Shpagina, referred to as the “Anime Girl,” famous for her cartoon-like appearance. Highly popular with anime fans, Shpanina and Lukyanova are friends in real life.  V magazine’s “Girl Power” issue, featuring Lukyanova, hits newsstands November 15.
