We were totally impressed when we saw Promise Tamang Phan, who, using only makeup, can turn herself into nearly any celebrity. But turning yourself into someone else using plastic surgery? That’s taking things to a whole other level.
Meet Valeria Lukyanova, a 21-year-old Ukrainian model who has made herself up into a real-life Barbie. Thanks to Jezebel, we were made aware of Lukyanova’s prolific web presence, which includes thousands of photos of the model looking, well, like a Barbie.
Lukyanova’s got the long, straight blonde hair, the flawless ivory skin, the wide-eyed look and the heart-shaped mouth. Even more unbelievable, however, is her tiny, seemingly carved-out waist and her disproportionally large chest. It may not be scientifically exact, but Lukyanova comes close to real-life Barbie proportions.
Valeria’s Tumblr does include some relatively natural-looking photos (and a video of her without any makeup). But then there are those where, covered in layers of makeup and possibly Photoshop, she looks truly plastic.
Has Valeria achieved her Mattel-made look through surgery? This newsreel suggests so, although we’ve seen other wannabe dolls get the Barbie look through makeup alone.
Then again, this woman paid over $800,000 to look like Barbie. So it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
See the stunning photos of the real-life Barbie below — there’s plenty more where that come from on on Tumblr, VK.com and Valeria’s own website, amatue21.com. What do you think of her doll-faced look?
