Will the real Barbie please stand up?

I’m sorry in advance if that title lead to the Eminem song being stuck in your head right now. It sure is in my head.

Anyway, Barbie does exist! It is 21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova’s life goal to look exactly like the plastic doll we’ve been playing with all of our childhoods. She’s had breast enhancement and has been to a few visits to her plastic surgeon for her face as well.


She sure as hell looks like a Barbie, but is that a compliment? Her face actually does look like plastic, rather emotionless, which makes her look cold and unfriendly. And I wouldn’t say that she has a healthy weight either.

But there are several theories on the internet speculating that the pictures are fake. One states that they are an artwork from an unknown artist, who photographed Barbie dolls as realistic as possible. If that is the case, I’d say he did an awesome job!

However, to supress the ‘fakery’ rumours, Valeria posted a few pictures on her Facebook profile without make-up. The Barbie pictures might still be photoshopped, but at least now we know the girl is real.


What do you think? Has society gone mad?
