A few weeks ago, ABC News reported on a teeny-waisted, huge-breasted, icy-blue-eyed, platinum-blonde-haired 21-year-old Ukrainian girl named Valeria Lukyanova who claimed to have used cosmetic surgery to turn herself into a living Barbie doll.
Although she isn't sized proportionately to Mattel's Barbie doll, her measurements are visually disturbing enough that the ABC report expressed concerns that she was either an elaborate photo-shop hoax or didn't exist at all (1).
However, a quick perusal of videos on Ms. Lukyanova's YouTube channel Amatue reveals that she is indeed a real person.
Lukyanova claims to be the "the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-language Internet." The following photos were taken from her Facebook page:

If you're wondering what Valeria looked like before going under the knife:
We have somehow managed to unearth photos of "Human Barbie", Valeria Lukyanova, before her plastic surgery transformation - and needless to say we are speechless.
She definitely has had more work done then any of us imagined, and it is unbelievable to think that this girl is just 21-years-old.
Some bloggers have written that seeing her body leaves them breathless. Actually I believe Valeria should be breathless - looking at her waist I don't understand how she can breath at all.

ABCNews, The Real-Life Ukrainian Barbie Doll
With a teeny waist, disproportionately large breasts and wide, icy-blue eyes, 21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova says she is the real natural deal. A real-life Barbie, that is.
That’s what she claims anyway. Many are crying foul to her claims of her au natural Mattel-branded looks. Whether she underwent plastic surgery or uses photoshop to carve out that waist remains unclear. On her blog, the model notes that she is the most famous woman on the Russian Internet because of her doll-like appeal.
Hundreds of photos on her Facebook page show a wide-eyed, nearly fake-looking Lukyanova posing in a variety of scanty outfits. But with nearly 8,000 subscribers to her Facebook page, it’s unclear whether Lukyanova exists at all, or whether it’s all a hoax thanks to the world of photo editing.
