Is “Human Barbie,” Valeria Lukyanova “fake”? This is the big question posed by Nik Richie, writer and founder of the celebrity gossip site called The Dirty. He’s not the only one who wonders this, of course. Valeria Lukyanova is a 22-year-old Ukrainian model who looks eerily like the Mattel Barbie Doll and is getting a lot of press recently for her artificial looks.
Nik Richie posted the following remarks about the Human Barbie on his site:
“Valeria Lukyanova is the Michael Jackson of Ukraine.
“This girl is a FRAUD. She had been badly photoshopping her photos since the beginning of her time online. Her videos aren’t photoshopped.Does she still look the same? There is a ton more of videos out there and as you can see from them, she looks nothing like she does when she photoshops her photos.”
One of the features about Valeria that appears most “fake,” is the way she tilts her head in all of her videos. She insists she has to hold her head that way because it’s too large for her thin neck.
The Human Barbie has been ridiculed for her overly exaggerated figure….tiny waist, enormous breasts, glassy eyes, and freaky perfect skin. She denies having any plastic surgery done, but several experts disagree.
Valeria Lukyanova recently gave an interview to V magazine about her life and how she copes with perceptions people have about her.
The Human Barbie blows off what critics think. She say she’s “happy I seem unreal to them, it means I’m doing a good job. This is how they justify not wanting to strive for self-improvement.”
Valeria said she spends time meditating and getting into astral body travel. It’s not all about her looks, but what’s inside she focuses on. Her outer looks are just an extension of that.
“I’m an idealist and a perfectionist, and I want my looks to reflect the world within me and how I feel,” She told V magazine.
