Valeria Lukyanova, of Ukraine, has spent $800,000 on her look, she’s been pumped with so much silicone that she’s been dubbed as Mattel’s real life Barbie doll. Lukyanova’s got the long, straight blonde hair, the flawless plastic finish, the wide-eyed look and the heart-shaped mouth. Even more unbelievable, however, is her teeny-tiny waist and her disproportionately exaggerated chest.
Valeria’s Tumblr does include some relatively natural looking pics. But then there are those where, covered in layers of makeup, she looks plastic.
Moveover Barbie cuz there’s a real life Ken too. By the way if you thought the Mattel look alike would spark some type of plasticky romance, guess again. Real life Ken, Justin Jedlica, doesn’t think real life Barbie is all that.
Justin was quick to dethrone Valeria of her real life Barbie title “it appears to me that much of her look is added makeup, fake hair and ‘slimming’ corsets … Drag queens have put on the same illusions with makeup and costumes for years. I can appreciate that she is a talented artist, but if at the end of the day she is only presenting this ‘human Barbie doll’ on days the camera is filming … I’m not sure just how much credibility I would give her in being a REAL human Barbie.” Ouch!
Jedlica, of New York City, is certainly the real deal in terms of body transformation. He’s had about 90 surgeries to get the muscular body (ever heard of a gym) and chiseled face. He’s been injected with silicone all over his body, has had several nose jobs, and plans to continue. So far it has cost him about $100,000.
But the big question remains unanswered: Is Valeria real or is this an elaborate Photoshop hoax?
To each his own. I’m all for plastic surgery and making minor body modification’s to help one feel better about themselves. But when I see images like this, I wonder has science gone too far. Do the Frankenstein-esque plastic surgeries help patients with their image self-esteem or just mask a deeper psychological trauma that is not being addressed. Although these fame seekers are getting just what they sought out to achieve – the world’s stage, as a society we love it. It’s just one big disfunctional mess, yes I’m guilty of it too. Like a car crash, although horrified you just can’t look away.
I guess life in plastic isn’t all that fantastic
