Russian Real-Life Barbie is Not Just Eye Candy (PHOTOS)
Valeria Lukyanova, the platinum blond beauty with a stunning hourglass body shape who is known to the world as a Living Barbie, told Sputnik about some intricacies of “living in a Barbie world” and shared her beauty secrets.
For almost 60 years, Barbie has been a beauty icon and inspiration for millions of women of all ages and from different parts of the world. Some ladies make all-out efforts in attempts to look like the famous doll. As for Valeria Lukyanova a.k.a. the Human Barbie, who shook the world with her impressive resemblance to the doll a few years ago, this nickname "stuck" to her by accident.
"Once I had a photo shoot in a Barbie-style, and since then people began to call me Barbie," Valeria told Sputnik. She claims her features are free of plastic surgery, except for her breasts. As for her big Barbie eyes, Valeria wears enlarging contact lenses.
However, she doesn't quite appreciate being labeled the Human Barbie.
"In fact, I tried a lot of different styles. Actually, the space image, along with the images of the Atlant girl and the warrior-Amazon are the closest ones to me. To fit the last one, I build my muscles in the gym every day. But people persistently compare me with Barbie, even though I'm too muscle-bound for a doll," Valeria said.
