Barbie has been the definition of beauty for most of the kids. If time is to be relieved, it can be seen that women across the world anteed nothing but to have the ‘Barbie’ life. Children across the globe are keen on knowing what Barbie and Ken are up to with their lives, because back in the time, there were no social media. But, for Valeria Lukyanova, 27, it’s a whole new story.
#1 The Living Barbie
She is living her dream life. She does not desire to know what Barbie is up to, in her life, because she is the living Barbie. Valeria is the girl who looks exactly like the plastic doll, and she is making money out of it, because- precision. Another close acquaintance of the real life Barbie, Olga Oleynik, shares her aspiration and inspiration and resembles that of the plastic doll.
#2 Barbie as inspiration
To put things into perspective, Valeria never used to look like the replica of the plastic doll. She was quite the blonde, human, or to be precise, the lady with regular statistics. But, she got motivated to change her appearance and so she did. Valeria soon got herself operated. She does not completely disagree on getting her body changed, through the operation but denies to have done anything to her face.
Yet, it is impossible to believe that she hasn’t gotten herself through any surgical procedure when it comes to her face. The chin has gotten narrower and her face is rather a heart shaped one, post her Barbie-like a makeover. To go with her theme, she only possesses skimpy clothing and has bleached her hair into peroxide blonde.
#3 Statistics that should put people in awe:
The plastic doll has been the reference point of the perfect body image, as to be followed in the glamor world. It is not only impossible to have something of that sort but is extremely unhealthy. Yet, Valeria has even managed to beat that. For instance, her body statistics is something as follows: 34.6-18.5-34.6. Whereas, had Barbie been a life size doll or had she been existing in real life, she would have been somewhere around 39-18-33.
The best part about her transformation is that she does not only match in the statistics, as Barbie but is proportionate like the doll. With her stats, Valeria is about 45kgs or 99lbs of weight. This might have been alarming to most of the people around the world, but Valeria who was previously 42kgs or 92lbs of weight was concerned about her weight gain.
#4 Under the Knife
Most of those who had attempted at gaining some unnatural weight, or reduce them, or even enhance a certain body part have gone under the knife. Valeria is no different. She claims to have had been under the knife just once, but not everybody agrees with that. According to the Barbie-like-girl, she had gotten a breast implant to almost double her size and that is about it. But when consulted with a plastic surgeon, Dr. Alexander Teplyashina, he claims there might have been an added nose job to enhance her look.
#5 What does she eat?
It is quite obvious that Valeria would have a strict diet to follow, to maintain her lanky figure and a tight waist. Firstly, she had been on a juice diet to keep her body off of any toxin and to go through a detox period for four months. Then, she had been on an all liquid diet. Following this trend, she has maintained her really tiny waist and her proportionate body. That being said, Valeria was also following a raw meat diet, which she credits to have been the reason behind her unnatural weight.
Although Valeria seems to have denied any further alteration of her body parts through surgery, other than the breast augmentation, it is impossible to believe that it is the whole truth. First of all, her tiny waist is something that strikes the eyes of most of the onlookers. The specialists believe that it is impossible to have such a strikingly tiny waist, without removing one or two ribs from her body. Contrary to such beliefs, Valeria claims that she hits the gym regularly to attain such a perfect figure.
#7 The face that matters
The Barbie girl denies of having any surgery done to her face and claims to have her own face. She simply credits her look on a heavy usage of makeup to enhance her look. To top that off, Valeria even applies blue iris colored contact lens on top of her green eyes, to look exactly like that to Barbie, the doll.
#8 Hobbies of a kind
Valeria believes in spiritual practices, meditation, and even mountain hiking with her husband. She is living, under the notion that she belongs to a different universe and that she can live without food. She even thinks that she will survive with solar energy. She is a firm believer in the fact that people can leave their physical body and traverse the path, less traveled, along with their spiritual body. It is this act of transcending worlds that allows individuals to have great freedom and an even greater potential. Plus, aside all these she also makes appearances at shows as the Human Barbie.
# 9 Diet, Diet
Surprisingly, although raw meat has been credited for Valeria’s trimmed waist, she is a vegetarian. She lives on the shakes and juices acquired from the raw vegetables and with this she survives. But Valeria is planning on quitting her food habits and even the further intake of any sort of food, at all. She intends on surviving on sunlight or solar energy. She believes that when the sunlight won’t be able to sustain her, her life force which is also known as prana will pick up a slack, of sorts.
#10 Why is Barbie inspiring?
Valeria, a mere child of 5, was extremely inspired by the way these dolls would look. She had collected over 50 dolls and was stern at remaking herself into a life-size model of the Barbie. This doll was the epitome of beauty standards for way too long and Valeria had taken it seriously, it appears.
#11 What happened before her transformation?
Valeria does not refrain from admitting that she used to be quite the party girl before she chose to transform herself. She was a bit too fond of hard liquor and would smoke as well. In 2007, she had graduated after completing her master’s degree from the Odessa State Academy of Construction and Architecture in Ukraine. She claims to have been a pro at drinking a row of shots at one go. She even had committed suicide in her teens, by in taking a bottle of pills.
#12 Barbie and Ken match made in heaven?
For Barbie cannot live without her true love Ken, it is only fitting that human Barbie should fall in love with human Ken. But, alas! That is not the case. Human Ken and Human Barbie, Justin Jedica, had met Valeria for a feature in the Insider edition in New York in February 2013 and hated each other. Justin has had over 100 plastic surgeries done to his body, spending over $100,000 on himself. He has had work done on his buttock, chin, eyebrows, nose jobs and even pectoral implants. With all these work done on him, Justin had the audacity to call Valeria a fake looking model. To which, Valeria had a fitting answer, that he has had over 100 surgeries while she has only 1 done on herself. Well, it appears that Barbie won this fight, this time.
#13 Ms. Diamond Crown
In 2017, Valeria did not only slowly transcend towards the world of Barbie, but she had also won the Ms. Diamond Crown, for the Ukraine residents. This controversial beauty pageant would only host contestants who have some kind of a plastic surgery done to themselves, and Valeria had won the crown. Although she does not look like the full-fledged Barbie, that she looks like, at present, but it indicates that she surely looks a lot like someone who has had a certain plastic surgery done to herself. At this point, her features look a lot sharper.
#14 The personal life
Valeria is married to her wealthy Ukrainian businessman husband Dmitry Shkrabov. She claims that her parents are very cool and even has a brother named Ivan. She even has a younger sister called Olga. In the photo, below, one can see the uncanny resemblance between the mother and the daughter.
In certain interviews, Valeria has stated that she refrains from any kinds of animal urges. To add to that, she claims that both she and her husband is from some alternate universe. In this universe, children do not exist. She even states that it is better to stay away from so called love. Valeria is against over-eating and in any kind of over-indulgent behavior of any sort.
#15 Her daily Life
The daily duties of Valeria involve working as a photo-model. Other than her daily chore which involves waking up and following her life s a Barbie, she is also a teacher at the School of Out-of-Body Travel. Residing currently in Odessa Ukraine, Valeria plans on leaving for America. Olga, her other friend, has her boyfriend in the U.S and even Valeria’s husband can expand her business in America as well. Thus, it is a fair deal for everyone.
