Your favourite Barbie is back—this time with a man. Yes, real-life doll Valeria Lukyanova paired up with a real-life Ken wannabe. But instead of love at first sight; instead of swapping beauty tips, they reportedly sniped and bitched.
Seriously. You couldn't make it up. According to an article in the UK Sun, the 23-year-old model met up with Justin Jedlica, a 32-year-old man who has spent an estimated $110,000 on plastic surgery, at a New York photo shoot.
While the pair looked uncannily, perfectly plastic together, they were said to engage in catty criticism of each other's appearance.
“Much of her look is added make-up, fake hair and slimming corsets. Drag queens have put on the same illusions for years,” American Justin allegedly said of Valeria.
The Ukrainian then lashed back, saying “Justin said bad things about me but he had more than 90 operations, while I had only one ... He would do better not to comment on who is plastic and who is not. I think he is handsome man — but he overdid his lips.”
When photos of Valeria went viral, many couldn't believe she was a real person. But the model is tickled by the fact that she is compared to an inanimate piece of plastic.
“This pleases me because a doll is an image of an ideal woman. Nobody would mind to be compared with a doll.”
Er, maybe Mattel's idea of an ideal woman. Might just be me, but I kinda like looking homo sapien.
