Almost every girl owned a Barbie doll when they were little. At some point, they looked at her body and said, “I want to look like that.” Very few have gone the extra mile to actually transform their body. That’s what Ukranian Valeria Lukyanova did, and her story went viral.
But now she’s aiming for a different look.
10. Childhood Dreams
30-year-old Ukranian Valeria Lukyanova began her career as an aspiring model. Like many girls, she played with Barbie dolls as a kid. Ever since she was 5-years-old, she wanted her body to match the popular doll’s figure. And so began her transformation that began with her new look in #2.
9. Dolling Up
The model has transformed her look to become more doll-like. Many people say she is arguably the most beautiful woman in the world. Can looks like these develop naturally? Valeria claims her looks come from eating right, exercising, and having good genes. Others question her ability to change this much without surgery.
8. The Human Barbie Is Born
She immediately became known as “Human Barbie.” A name she undoubtedly loved and adopted. This had been her goal all along. She claims the body is almost completely natural. “I’m not hiding the fact that I’ve had plastic surgery,” she said in an interview. Head to #7 to see which operations she’s had.
7. Only One Type Of Surgery?
“I had breast implants because I want to be perfect,” she admitted. People understandably don’t believe her. Her body has changed so drastically, there is no way she hasn’t had any other alterations. According to the model, her look is crafted using carefully applied makeup and other cosmetic tricks.
6. Living On Light And Air
She says her slender figure formed from daily workouts. She also adopted breatharianism, a weird belief that food is not necessary for the human body to survive. Those who adopt the belief system live on the assumption the body can survive on only air and light. What do the critics in #5 say about the practice?
5. No Kidding, It’s Lethal
Outspoken critics of breatharianism call it a “potentially lethal pseudoscience” that is not healthy in any way. Several people who have adopted it have apparently starved to death trying to live off of micro-food. No one has undergone medical studies, so there is no way to tell the long-term effects of such a lifestyle.
4. Does Barbie Have A Ken?
If you’re wondering if Barbie has met her Ken, then you might be surprised. She did meet Justin Jedlica, who has spent over $100,000 on body sculpting procedures. His philosophy about plastic surgery is quite different. “I’ve always been into plastic surgery because it’s an extension of me being creative.” Cringe at their awkward meeting in #3.
3. Barbie’s Meeting With Ken Isn’t As Expected
When the two met in 2013, the apparently couldn’t stand the sight of each other. “Ken” reportedly said, “It appears to me that much of her look is added makeup, fake hair, and slimming corsets. Drag queens have put on the same illusions with makeup and costumes for years.”
2. Changing Her Whole Look
Lukyanova has since abandoned her look as the Human Barbie. Thankfully, the model has picked up a different workout and food regimen, so she looks a lot healthier than before. So, now what is the Human Barbie’s goal? It’s a drastic change that you probably won’t guess unless you finish off at #1.
1. Singing Amazon Woman
Valeria Lukyanova is now sculpting her body to resemble an Amazonian look. The model has also started a music career. “When I’m singing, it’s like a deep trance for me. Music will help people relax and make a journey into their hidden places inside.” She has also dived into the EDM scene. Whatever she wants, as long as she’s eating now.
