'Human Barbie' Valeria Lukyanova: Mixed Races Contribute to Plastic Surgery Popularity

April 08, 2014 02:18:58 GMT


Valeria Lukyanova who is dubbed "Human Barbie" after altering her appearance to look more like Barbie doll talks about looks and plastic surgery in an interview with GQ. During the conversation with GQ Russia's editor-in-chief Michael Idov, Valeria says, "Everyone wants a slim figure. Everyone gets breasts done. Everyone fixes up their face if it's not ideal, you know? Everyone strives for the golden mean. It's global now."

The Ukrainian woman then seemingly suggests that race-mixing contributes to the boost of cosmetic procedures. "For example, a Russian marries an Armenian. They have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad's nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it's all good. Ethnicities are mixing now, so there's degeneration, and it didn't used to be like that. Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this," she is quoted as saying.
