We were totally impressed when we saw Promise Tamang Phan, who, using only makeup, can turn herself into nearly any celebrity. But turning yourself into someone else using plastic surgery? That's taking things to a whole other level.
Meet Valeria Lukyanova, as 21-year-old Ukrainian model who has made herself up into a real-life Barbie. Thanks to Jezebel, who pointed out the ridiculous Youtube clip above, we were made aware of Lukyanova's prolific web presence, which includes thousands of photos of the model looking, well, like a Barbie.
Lukyanova's got the long, straight blonde hair, the flawless ivory skin, the wide-eyed look and the heart-shaped mouth. Even more unbelievable, however, is her tiny, seemingly carved-out waist and her disproportionally large chest. It may not be scientifically exact, but Lukyanova comes close to real-life Barbie proportions.
Valeria's Tumblr does include some relatively natural-looking photos (and a video of her without makeup, below). But then there are those where Valeria, covered in layers of makeup and possibly Photoshop, looks truly plastic.
Has she achieved her Mattel-made look through surgery? The newsreel above suggests so, although we've seen other wannabe dolls get the Barbie look through makeup alone.
Then again, this woman paid over $800,000 to look like Barbie. So it's not out of the realm of possibility.
