Ukrainian woman becomes real-life Barbie

At 21, Valeria Lukyanova has finally managed to perfect her Barbie doll look. So much so that some doubt if she even exists.

Tiny waist. Check.

Disproportionately large chest. Check.

Long, blond, straight hair. Check.

Long, weirdly spaced eye-lashes. Check.

Meet Valeria Lukyanova, a 21-year-old Ukrainian model who has made it her life goal to become a live Barbie doll, the plastic icon made famous by US toy maker Mattel.

The logic of wanting to look like a Barbie doll in the first place aside, one must admit she has achieved her goal, including a vacant, doe-in-the-headlight staredown.

Lukyanova has become an internet sensation, although some sources claim she might be a Photoshop-perfected hoax.

After all, no woman can be this perfect.

Not to say there haven’t been other cases of women who attempted to look like the famous — if utterly disproportionate — female doll.

Take Sarah Burge, who was dubbed the "real-life Barbie" several years ago, after having plastic surgery reportedly costing about $800,000.

But perhaps no other Barbie-wannabe has come this close to looking like an actual, human-sized, Barbie-looking blow up doll.

For more disturbing pictures, visit her site.

Or, even better, watch this spoof video:

Lukyanova has described herself as "the most famous Russian-speaking woman on the Russian-language internet."

It’s a good thing she has perfected Barbie’s modesty, too.
