TODAY’S HOT TOPIC: Model Redesigns Herself to Meet Barbie’s Unrealistic Level of Perfection

Did you grow up with Barbie? Did you ever want to look like Barbie?

There’s always been controversy surrounding the doll. Little girls love her, but critics feel Barbie creates unrealistic standards for the female body. Her eyes are unnaturally big and her feet and waist are way too small to physically support the rest of her body, they said. No one could ever look like Barbie. It’s impossible, right? But is it?

Take a look at the following clip of Valeria Lukyanova, the real life human Barbie doll.

So does this prove that looking like Barbie is not an unrealistic standard? That women can look like the doll if they really want it?

Well, let’s put it this way. In order to look like Barbie, Lukyanova wears a ton of makeup, had surgery on her chest and has to pretty much starve herself to maintain such a small waist. In fact, she had to redesign the body that God created. So, I guess it’s still impossible to look like Barbie naturally.

Hollywood has proven that even the most beautiful women have to be Photoshopped to meet unrealistic standards of perfection. And Lukyanova has proven that she needs makeup, surgery and an extreme diet to look like Barbie. She also has to risk her health.

No woman should go to extreme levels to maintain an unnatural level of perfection. God has already designed each and every one of us, and He makes no mistakes. If you want to improve yourself, work on your heart, beautiful girls. God’s already taken care of the body.

Ladies, do you feel it’s okay to adopt extreme measures to attain the perfect body, or is it just messing with God’s creation? Share your thoughts, we love hearing from you!

    If you have to almost starve yourself to look like a doll then I think I’ll pass. Besides I don’t want to look exactly like Barbie I just want her clothes! 🙂

    I think in some cases plastic surgery is okay. For example my cousin had surgery on her face to get a scar fixed, but that was a case of injury and reconstruction, not alteration. I might get a mole or something removed if I had something on my face I just couldn’t stand, but for the most part I don’t believe in messing with physical appearances through surgery. I suppose it’s easy to say since personally I don’t have any awkward blemishes and I’m happy with my nose, but plastic surgery is so tacky. When it’s not done right or taken to the extreme it just looks unnatural. Besides, if you flip through magazines and really look at the models faces, chances are you’ll find a gap in their tooth or a crooked spot in their nose. It’s the “flaws” in faces that make people look twice anyways so why “fix” that?

    I think she is beautiful, even without her enhancements. I think she must be a very strong to endure all the physical stress she puts on her body and all the criticism she must get. I admire her for her strength and determination to be “perfect” . But I also pity her. Someone or something must have messed with her head and made her think she needs this, even though it isn’t true. But I understand how easy it is to believe that sort of thing. I think that, without the breast surgery, she has a gorgeous body! I appreciate her confidence!

        If she is that skinny and is on a liquid only diet, there is absolutely no way she could carry a baby. She’d probably lose the baby and risk dying herself.

    I think that girl looks weird… I don’t really know why she did all does sirguries and waist all that money but honestly speaking she doesn’t look like barbie at all and barbie is just a pretty doll that women freaks me out every time I look at her… God made originally beautiful and she lost all that because she wanted fame cause that’s the only thing she got on return

    That’s just crazy, I can’t believe someone would actually go that far as to try to look JUST like Barbie. I love Barbie as much as the next girl (probably one of the few toys I played with consistently growing up) but I never wanted to look JUST like her. This is just really sad! And she looked beautiful before anyway!

    Honestly, she looks scary. God made everyone gorgeous and beautiful, you do not need to go on an all liquid diet and have a ton of surgery to see it. We are all beautiful.
