Everything about Valeria Lukyanova
Lukyanova who is known among her fans as “The Human Barbie” also has a few other nicknames like “The Russian Barbie”, “The Ukrainian Barbie”, and “The Odessa Barbie”.
Lukyanova was born in the year 1985 in Tiraspol, which was then a part of the Moldavian SSR in the Soviet Union. She is a Russian national.
She resided in Odesa until 2014 and then relocated to Moscow. She completed her bachelor’s degree from the Odesa State Academy of Constructions and Architecture in architecture.
Valeria Lukyanova started her career in modeling at the age of 16. The international beauty pageant “Miss Diamond Crown of the World” was won by Lukyanova in 2007.
There were roughly 300 candidates in the beauty pageant, which was accessible to all females and had no rules against plastic surgery or other forms of body modification. She later had a number of photo shoots and interviews, some of which included pornographic images, published in Russian media.
After publishing pictures and videos of herself online, Lukyanova gained a following all over the world for her Barbie doll-like appearance. She became well-known after online claims of her “nearly superhuman beauty” appeared.
Sebastian Faena’s photo shoot in V magazine came after the Jezebel blog published the first major coverage of Valeria Lukyanova outside Russia. She was compared to a live Barbie doll in the media.
Speaking about her comparisons to Barbie dolls, she said in an interview, “I do not think that I look like a Barbie. I think I just look like a classy girl. It takes about an hour and a half to do that. That I did a bunch of surgeries to look like a doll and know nothing more about me. It is actually completely different and my look is only a side effect of my inner world.”
She also added that if her body requires any plastic surgery in the future, she would go with it. She said, “I am not against surgery. But for now, there is nothing I need to do.”
Acting and Music Career
The School of Out-of-Body Travel, which advertises itself as “an international school where our instructors show students how to leave their physical body and travel in their spiritual body,” employs Lukyanova as an instructor. Amatue is her name in spirituality.
She is an opera singer and composer who has released two new age albums under the names Amatue – Sun in the Eyes, and 2013. She wrote a book called Astral Travel Amatue about her astral travels, which she made freely downloadable as an RTF file from her website in 2012.
She made her acting debut as the lead in Susannah O’Brien’s horror film The Doll (2017). The motion picture was screened at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
Body Transformation that gave her a Barbie look
Lukyanova underwent the breast augmentation procedure as confirmed by her after she got the platinum blonde look for her hair. Her transition into social media influencer status coincided with the start of a dramatic metamorphosis that probably required additional surgery.
However, as she denies having undergone any additional surgeries, we are unsure of the potential expense of her Barbie-like body.
Lukyanova asserts that her face looks like a doll owing to her makeup routine for which she takes more than an hour. However, Valeria Lukyanova has certainly undergone multiple procedures, including rhinoplasty and body contouring to lower her waist size, according to plastic surgeon Dr. Sam Rizk.
Criticism and Allegations
Lukyanova has been the subject of skepticism. According to ABC News, Lukyanova was a fraud made possible by photo-editing software. Lukyanova was used by American author and educator Diane Levin as an illustration of the detrimental impacts of media objectification.
Lukyanova produced videos on YouTube and made appearances on the Russia-1 and Channel One RussiaTV networks to refute the allegations of image tampering. In addition to denying having her ribs removed to reduce her waist, Lukyanova acknowledged that she underwent a breast augmentation procedure. She also said that she has not gone with any other cosmetic procedures.
Lukyanova accused unrelated parties of manipulating pictures of her younger self in an evil ploy to indicate that she has got done body transformations.
Social Media Presence
Lukyanova is creating a lot of buzz on social media platforms like Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, and Facebook.
Valeria is very active on social media, especially on Instagram where she has 1.5 million followers at the time of writing this article. Her engaging demeanor and stunning photos never fail to captivate followers.
Her childhood friend, the Ukrainian businessman Dmitry Shkrabov, is her husband. But Lukyanova asserted that she does not desire a “family lifestyle” or children.
In an interview, she said, “It has everything to do with the desperate desire to get married. A woman here is brought up for two things: marriage and motherhood. Valeria is the ultimate demonstration of what a Ukrainian woman is willing to do to herself. I bet she is exactly what men dream about.”
When Lukyanova backed Russia during the Donbas War, it raised criticism. After posing in the Crimea, she wrote: “Never give up! fight! The fascists were combated by our grandfathers using only their own fists! Do not defame the Great Warrior’s honour! Recognize that Russia is always nearby.”
Additionally, she has aired racist opinions. In a 2014 interview, she asserted that race-mixing causes “degeneration” and that this is why there are apparently fewer attractive women in society today.
She even stated that a child born to a Russian mother and an Armenian father would require plastic surgery in order to have her nose reduced in size.
