the new human barbie .... Angelica Kenova and the earlier Valeria Lukyanova

Valeria Lukyanova, a young woman and attractive woman from Ukraine. Sure you know and most likely adore the beautiful doll which is even criticized as promoting an unrealistic idea of body image for  young women, leading to a risk that girls who attempt to emulate her becoming anorexic.  There is this ‘…….’ Syndrome ~ the desire to have a physical appearance and lifestyle representative of the doll – the famous ‘Barbie doll’.

Barbie is a fashion doll manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, Inc. and launched in March 1959. American businesswoman Ruth Handler is credited with the creation of the doll using a German doll called Bild Lilli as her inspiration. Barbie is the figurehead of a brand of Mattel dolls and accessories, including other family members and collectible dolls. Barbie's full name is Barbara Millicent Roberts. In a series of novels published by Random House in the 1960s, her parents' names are given as George and Margaret Roberts from the fictional town of Willows, Wisconsin. Barbie has had over 40 pets including cats and dogs, horses, a panda, a lion cub, and a zebra. She has owned a wide range of vehicles, including pink Corvette convertibles, trailers, and jeeps. She also holds a pilot's license, and operates commercial airliners in addition to serving as a flight attendant. Valeria Lukyanova is touted as human Barbie !!

~and now comes the news that she is not alone !  ~Angelica Kenova 26 year old Russian living in Moscow, Russia is hailed as the new 'Human Barbie' ! MailOnline reports that Angelica has been raised as a living doll since she was born.  Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, still lives with her hyper-controlling parents, who have been honing her drastic look all her life - dictating her diet and exercise programme so she can maintain her miniature six-stone frame.   'Growing up, my parents raised me like a princess and never let me go out, date boys or have the usual adult experiences,' Angelica says. 'As a result, I am not fit for real life - I'm like a living doll.'

She insists she has never had plastic surgery and says she would love to be Playboy Playmate one day.  Angelica has been dressed up as a Barbie doll since birth and is only allowed to go on dates if her mother, Natalia, accompanies her. Yet bizarrely, the diminutive blonde - who claims to be a child psychologist and a ballet dancer as well as a model - regularly poses for half-naked photos, which her parents approve of. Angelica maintains that her walking-talking doll looks were achieved without plastic surgery and has amassed thousands of fans on social media.  She boasts the same unrealistic body proportions and wide-eyed features as a Barbie, with a tiny 20-inch waist and a 32E bra size.  Angelica - who has one older brother, Roman - still lives with her parents and can only date men with their absolute approval - which has so far never happened.

In her teens, Angelica's parents hired her a personal trainer (left), who works out with her for two to three hours, five times per week to keep her 20-inch waist in check.  'My mother and father don't want me to move out of the family home,' she says. 'I'm not even allowed to buy clothes without my mum there - she likes to choose attire that clings to my figure and emphasize my good features.   I've never had a proper boyfriend. All the boys I know are just friends unfortunately.'

Angelica says that her mother and father, Evegniy, are keen to see her succeed as a model and are 'proud' of her raunchy photo shoots.   Growing up, Angelica, was given the most extravagant upbringing and the most expensive education that money could buy ~she has been brought up like a Princess and always permitted to do onething,  of course, to  dress like a doll.  

According to Angelica, her mother  was also very beautiful in her youth,' looking  like Brigitte Bardot. She loved Barbie's slender beauty, golden curls, cute face and beautiful clothes, and urged her daughter to be exactly the same.'

Angelica recalls: 'I would pose in the mirror for hours and put on performances for my parents' friends. Everyone nicknamed me the Russian Barbie.'  The personal trainer designs personalised exercises helping to tone her buttocks and hone her  narrow waist.  She has her feelings stating that given her age, she should be independent but parents are not allowing that; accompanying her on dates.  She concludes: 'My parents have kept me in a glass palace all my life but one day hopefully, I will be able to break free. It is never too late to start an independent life.'


Long before Angelica hit the scene, Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova, pictured  gained worldwide fame for emulating a Barbie doll and was dubbed the original 'Human Barbie'

  1. Hey
    I just noticed you mentioned Human Barbie in this post, so thank you for that :)
    Just wondering, is the any chance you'd consider adding my link (Valeria Lukyanova) to the post as well?
    I think it would be super-useful for your visitors.
    Let me know if this is possible and if so, anything I can do to help.
    Thanks,
