Last year Models Direct blogged about internet sensation Valeria Lukyonova – a model dubbed ‘the human Barbie’ – as images of her doll-like face and body went viral.

Her look was so unreal that some sources claimed it was all trickery and that the Ukranian model didn’t even exist in reality. However, when she bagged a modelling job for V Magazine it became clear that the 21-year-old was more than simply a myth.

Regardless of any cosmetic surgery she may have had, or digital enhancement of her images, there was no denying that Lukyonova is as close to a human Barbie as you’re likely to see anywhere on the planet. Whether or not her look is something to be celebrated remains a matter of opinion!

Love or hate her, in an interview last year she described a day in her life in a way that sounded light-years from the kind of rock and roll lifestyles that some UK models have become known for: “In the morning I work on my face and I get a massage, then I spend some time on the Internet. I meditate and travel in my astral body,” she said.

“After that I work out at the gym, go for a walk with my best girlfriend, I get home, and I make dinner for the man I love. Then I spend some more time on the Internet, do some reading and meditating, and go to bed.”

But despite her apparently harmless and spiritual attitude, it seems that ‘the human Barbie’ has come in for criticism from someone that you’d expect to be a huge fan – human Ken.

Justin Jedlica is said to have had 90 cosmetic procedures in order to become a human version of Barbie’s boyfriend Ken, but when the two met in New York for a photo-shoot he was very critical of Lukyonova’s look, claiming: “Much of her look is added make-up, fake hair and slimming corsets. Drag queens have put on the same illusions for years.”


Lukyonova responded: “Justin said bad things about me but he had more than 90 operations, while I had only one. I am not hiding that I’ve had plastic surgery. I had breast implants because I want to be perfect.

“He would do better not to comment on who is plastic and who is not. I think he is handsome man — but he overdid his lips.”

Bloggers at Models Direct would love to know what you think of these two ‘living dolls’?
