Known as human dolls, women that resemble Barbie are popping up all over the internet. But the best known of them all is Valeria Lukyanova, a Russian doll. Given her stunning body and larger-than-life eyes, it seems that only plastic surgery could transform a human into doll form. But according to Valeria, plastic surgery isn’t responsible.
21-year old Valeria Lukyanova was thought to be either heavily Photoshopped or a case of major plastic surgery when she first hit the Net with her doll-like looks (See Make Me Heal’s story on Valeria Lukyanova’s potential plastic surgery).
In an interview with V magazine, Valeria denies plastic surgery, saying, “Many people say bad things about people who want to perfect themselves. It’s hard work, but they dismiss it as something done by surgeons or computer artists. This is how they justify not wanting to strive for self-improvement. It’s how they explain their continued inaction. It’s just an excuse. There are plenty of video clips on the Internet showing what I really look like. Some people even spread rumors about me and retouch my pictures to hurt me. But I don’t take them seriously. I’m even flattered! It’s what success is like. I’m happy I seem unreal to them, it means I’m doing a good job.”
With or without plastic surgery, Valeria clearly knows how to make people look twice.
