Over the past few years, we have seen a huge amount of women going to extreme lengths, in a bid to make themselves look like a Human Barbie, with some spending hundreds of thousands on different surgeries. Meanwhile, Ukrainian beauty Valeria Lukyanova has risen to internet celebrity status, for looking like a Human Barbie, yet Valeria does not like the tag at all.
Lukyanova explained, "I don't think they are right. I think it's even a little degrading and insulting, but I'm used to it now, since that's what my work demands and this is precisely the image most fans request. So I have to comply with it because it's become part of my aesthetic image, but I don't like it."
Despite the fact that Valeria Lukyanova claims that she is not a fan of being referred to as a Human Barbie and finds the tag quite degrading, she is clearly not that fussed by it, as she uses #Barbie on her official social media accounts. However, Valeria claims that this is to make it easier for people to find her online.
She added, "When people look for me, they look for me with that hashtag. I'm the most popular [Barbie] copy in the world. When people say 'Barbie,' it's clear that it's associated with me, not anyone else. So that's why I use that hashtag — so people can find me this way."
With all that said, Valeria Lukyanova has become famous for looking like a Human Barbie and will continue to be referred to in that way for many more years to come. Sorry Val!
