21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova, is a Ukrainian model. People say  she is the real-life Barbie.Valeria has sparked an online debate over how the Mattel toy may really be pushing youth to have a warped sense of reality about beauty and what a healthy female should look like.
Valeria claims on her blog that she’s the most famous woman on the Russian internet because of her doll-like appeal, the debate rages on about whether her image has been photoshopped or if she used plastic surgery to achieve her look, or even whether she’s a real woman at all:

Alot  of photos on her Facebook page show a wide-eyed, nearly fake-looking Lukyanova posing in a variety of scanty outfits. But with nearly 8,000 subscribers to her Facebook page, it’s unclear whether Lukyanova exists at all, or if its photo editing.
The model did not return requests for comment. If photoshop is not a factor in getting Lukyanova’s look, she likely underwent a barrage plastic surgery. Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said plastic surgery should never be used to transform oneself into a favorite celebrity or, in this case, a play toy.

“We believe evaluating any and all issues that may affect our patients’ well-being, including psychological factors, is part of providing total patient care,” Roth said in a statement. “Additionally, Valeria is also only 21, so certain milestones in growth and physical maturity ought to be considered before plastic surgery is performed. ASPS cautions patients to keep in mind that plastic surgery is real surgery with real risks, just as with any operation, so the decision should not be taken lightly.”

  Diane Levin, professor of education at Wheelock College in Boston, said the mystery of her existence is not the issue. The problem is that her flaunted image epitomizes and exemplifies the issue of objectification of women in today’s society.

“Barbie has always been controversial and really changed the discussion on how girls play,” said Levin, author of the book, “The Next Sexualized Childhood and How Parents Can Protect Their Kids.” ”When Barbie came around, play suddenly became about dressing up and looking right and it eventually played a role in how women wanted to look in real life.”
While Lukyanova is an extreme example of societal expectations of perfect beauty, Levin said,

“If society expects women to look like that, it is harder for almost any woman to totally resist it.

“This just feeds into our media screen culture, where being involved with real things are becoming more and more removed for children,” Levin said. “Even if she’s totally photoshopped, the fact that her body is being changed to one that no one actually can attain epitomizes what is happening in our society.”
Levin encouraged parents to have an open discussion with their children about sexualization and objectification in the media.
“Rather than just writing it off as someone or something that is ridiculous, allow your child to share your thoughts and have an open discussion about healthy self-image and expectations for themselves and others,” she said.

  4. camera boys says:

    Great blog right here!

  5. Amy Duncan says:

    Wow, she looks plastic, and I don’t mean surgery!

  6. ayoliag says:

    Oh my goodness ..this is quite eerie but it is quite interesting to note how much of an impact celebrities (real or plastic) have on young and still impressionable minds!

    Good grief .. I’m still in shock!

  7. On most pictures she seems to be dead, lifeless. i REBLOG IT;

  8. Lady D says:

    Crazy! I wanna know how she wil look 10 years from now. Fake of not, this will get old at some point.

  9. Bola says:

    O boy! is this for real?

  10. shiroknowes says:

    It’s very strange to see this kind of a woman, I’am for sure that I like natural, she looks…..strange if she’s from plastic and not from flesh and blood ! Have a beautiful day Audrina !

  11. cioccolatoscuro says:

    What is worse is she probably looked stunning before surgery, if she had any (not Photoshop).

  12. nyparrot says:

    Hey, you ‘re gonna give it to her – she really does resemble a Barbie Doll a lot!:)

  13. It’s just so sad to see ‘women’ like this get any press/media and the like. I have no problem with natural beauties getting press who use their beauty to (for e.g.) change history, e.g. Gia C. made it more acceptable to use ‘foreign’ looking models, Iman helped boost the ‘black modelling industry’. But this ‘thing’… well I guess we all have to pay the rent somehow innit…

  14. Thoroughly interesting. The idea that Mattel is somehow pushing the youth into this bizarre lifestyle is ridiculous. Barbie are not only manufactured for children, they are clearly targeting little ones who want to play dress-up and have innocent play time with dolls. Society, on the other hand, is not so innocent. Using Barbie dolls and dressing them up in Chanel and Christian Louboutin is just ridiculous, but the real tragedy is that women – young and of a they-should-know-better age – endorse these products. The fashion bloggers went crazy with the “OMG, I want to be a Barbie doll…”. I mean, are these people for real!? Grown women actually buying Barbies for themselves because it makes them feel included in the fashionable crowd. How pathetic!

    There seems to be a never ending spew of young women dressing and, worse still, acting and talking like Nicki Minaj. The bright coloured false hair, the 20cm fake nails et al. Is it Nicki’s fault? No. Nothing against Nicki. Society endorses her. The issue I have is that these teenagers and impressionable young women do not seem to see value in simply being and and looking like themselves.

    When women go on extreme diets and/or have plastic surgery, everybody starts blaming models or brands. This level of ignorance is rather amusing to me. If the media didn’t endorse these celebs and brands, we would not see them = they would not be able to affect us. Don’t blame the individuals, blame their supporters and stop buying their products. Money is everything. If you boycott a publication because they run ads from company X, things will change rapidly.

    As for this young lady, some images look real e.g. she looks made up like Barbie. Some look very fake. If they are the latter, the person doing the photoshop is very talented – the shadows, impressions on the cushion etc.

    Some of the photos look real, but others seem to have been edited. Anyway, to me she is a Barbie Doll.
