Over the years, people have been fascinated by the “human Barbie” phenomenon.
But while people usually focus on the outward appearance of these barely-human beings, a GQ journalist decided to get inside the head one of the Barbiest of them all: Valeria Lukyanova.
So what’s behind that doll-like stare? Apparently racism, anti-feminism, anti-familyism (is that even a thing??), and some sort of dream guidance.
Check out the odd and unexpected HIGHlights…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
In case you haven’t heard of him yet, the man we speak of is Justin Jedlica. He gained fame a while back for having over 100 cosmetic procedures geared towards attaining a Ken doll appearance, and has appeared on both My Strange Addiction as well as The Doctors for his plastic surgery habit.
With this resurgence of human Barbie news, it’s only logical to update y’all on what Justin/Ken’s been up to!
He’s actually taken his passion for knifestyles and turned it into something productive!!
After enduring 145 procedures for over $168,000 (he recently had implants put in his biceps and deltoids), he’s opened up his own plastic surgery consultation business.
He happily revealed:
And people have been trying to steal her thunder ever since!!
Just kidding, she’s probably not the one who started the whole “human Barbie doll” thing; we’ve all heard of people who want to become Barbies, right??

Well, now we’re learning how she achieves her absurdly small waistline.
Fostering a healthy body image is all the rage in the fashion industry these days!
For instance, major modeling agencies are now accepting models outside of their usual 5’10” - size 2 range, Tyra Banks has taken issue with the plus-size label, and models of all shapes and sizes have begun to grace high-fashion runways.
So is it time for the traditional Barbie doll to make a change as well?
With many young girls looking to Barbie’s curves and itty-bitty waist for an unhealthy source of thinspiration, many are saying yes.
A Facebook page dedicated to Plus Size Modeling recently posted a photo (above) asking followers if they would like to see bigger barbies in stores, and the response was decidedly mixed!
The responses ranged from:
"No one is naturally fat for gods sake, that's sending the message to girls that it's ok to look like this and be unhealthy.. How about we stop obsessing about being overweight and teach our children to eat healthy and get out and play…"
Our princess-dress finder PennyChic blogger, Shauna Miller, went out and found the cheapest, chicest way to look like this.
We can’t believe you can get all this for $133.98! Can U???
They may not be the most aesthetically pleasing footwear–hey, they're not exactly Louboutins–but they're comfy as all get-out and clearly high in demand if holiday shoppers' purchase habits are anything to go by.
It probably also helps that they're slightly less expensive than Louboutins.
According to data from Experian Marketing Services, Uggs have been named the most popular and most searched-for item this holiday season, beating out such heavyweights as
