A day in the life of a living doll: nothing out of the ordinary

Valeria Lukyanova must be one of the most extraordinary looking women out there but, she says in her recent interview with V Magazine, she’s all real and, come to think of it, pretty much down to earth in almost everything she does.

Despite her incredible appearance, which makes her resemble a real-life human Barbie (starting from the flawless face to the remarkable proportions of her body), Valeria says there’s nothing fake about her: she never had plastic surgery and she would never Photoshop her own pictures to look differently.

Of course, she uses makeup and takes very good care of herself – it would be ridiculous to assume she’s 100% au naturelle.

“Indeed, I’ve noticed a trend,” she says of the so-called living doll beauty trend that’s all the rage online right now.

“Every good-looking woman with fine features and a slim figure looks like a doll. I won’t deny that I play along with people’s perceptions. I’m amused by the reactions. I don’t take it seriously,” she adds.

Valeria describes herself as an artist and the “most famous woman of the Russian-speaking Internet,” so she sees her image as one way of creating art.

Being a living work of art takes a lot of time and attention, as you can imagine.

“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, and after that I work out at the gym,” Valeria says.

“I 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,” she adds.

Valeria says her makeup is a form of expression, as also are her minimalist outfits that make her Barbie-like body stand out.

“Most of my makeup I design myself as I put it on. I’m an artistic person, and I love dramatic images and bright makeup. I love the process of doing my own,” she explains.

The rest of the interview is here, at V Magazine, together with a photospread meant to show you why they call Valeria Human Barbie.
