PHOTOS: Is This Model A Real-Life Barbie Or Just A Photoshop Hoax?

Have you ever seen a real-life Barbie? No? Well, 21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova bears a striking resemblance to the real thing. The Ukranian model has the doll’s plastic-y skin, long blond hair, wide eyes, thin nose, and (of course!) an insane chest-to-waist-ratio.

Lukyanova promotes her Barbie-like features via a personal blog, a Facebook page, and her own YouTube channel. She has uploaded 95 videos since she joined YouTube in November 2011 and has 385 subscribers. There are videos of her singing, putting on makeup, her cat Behemoth, shots of her body, and her raw foot diet, which could explain her teeny-tiny waist.

Strangely enough, her Facebook page lists her current city as Odessa, Ukraine but her YouTube channel has her in Japan. That explains the Japanese video titles, but not much else.

Some commenters speculate that Lukyanova has been excessively Photoshopped in her photos or that she has gotten plastic surgery, while others have championed the real-life Barbie.

What do you think of the photos?

And check out this hilarious Taiwanese animation of Lukyanova’s alleged plastic surgery below:
