How the Barbie look was mimicked

Human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova achieved her looks due to several things. She had surgery performed on her breasts and is following a strict diet. To get a good idea of how Lukyanova imitated the Mattel product, consider that a Barbie doll would measure, as follows:

  • Bust – 13.5 cm
  • Waist – 8.5 cm
  • Hips – 12.5 cm
  • Height – 29.5 cm

Now if these measurements were to be put on a human being, that person would measure, as follows:

  • Bust – 36 cm
  • Waist – 18 cm
  • Hips -33 cm
  • Height – 185 cm or 5 feet 9 inches

Valeria Lukyanova’s actual measurements are:

  • Bust – 34 in
  • Waist -18 in
  • Hips – 34 in

She is 1.70 m or 5 feet 7 inches and weighs 42 kgs.

How she did it

Valeria is blonde and has green eyes. To simulate the Barbie look she uses contact lenses, had plastic surgery to augment her breasts and is a vegan on a strict liquid diet. She also goes to the gym daily.


Valeria denies removing her ribcage to reduce her silhouette as well as having additional surgeries to enhance her body making it look like a Barbie doll. In the latest interview done by GQ, Valeria explained her motivation for the transformation explaining why her image is the type women all over the world are emulating. According to her, everyone wants to look thin and fix what is not right. She is also converting to 'breatharianism' trying to live off air and light.

Changing the concept of beauty

Although Barbie mania has long been in existence, the human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova has a significant impact on how women regard beauty. Unfortunately, it should not go as far as redefining what real beauty is. As the model and trainer revealed, the concept of beauty has changed because of ‘racial mixing.' This controversial remark earned her the reputation of being a 'racist.'
