valeria lukyanova Meet Valeria Lukyanova, the real life Barbie dollEver wanted to see what a Barbie doll come-to-life would look like? Twenty-one year-old Ukrainian woman Valeria Lukyanova may the closest anyone has ever come – especially because she specifically (ahem) dolls herself up to resemble the plastic toy and poses in a way that is so uncanny she looks fake.

On her website, she claims to be the most famous woman on the Russian-language internet. There is also one of those fake animated reenactment videos posted that purports to show how she came to look like this.

It has commenters expressing widely varied opinions, from “Am I the only one that think she looks like Paris Hilton????” and “I think Morgan Fairchild beat her to it a long time ago.?” to “Looks very high maintenance. Almost gold? diggish. No thank you.”

On her Facebook page, there are pictures like the one directly below that show her when she isn’t trying to hard to look like a Barbie doll – and we think she looks a lot better that way. What do you think, readers?
