Style Star: Barbie Wannabe

in Style Star, Uncategorized

Like most girls, I played with Barbies in my younger years.  I vividly remember living my pink- filled fantasy life vicariously through her.  Except my Barbie’s life was not nearly as fab as it should have been. (Parents refused to buy me the pink mansion, Cadillac and other necessary accroutrements).  So my homeless Barbie had to sleep in a makeshift bed made from my shoebox and my mom’s Stayfree maxipad (I was a creative kid).  And during the day, she played with my brother’s G.I.J.O.E.s because there was no Ken and there was no Skipper. But in my eyes, Barbie was beautiful with or without all the fancy stuff that my friends’ Barbie’s had.  I loved her long silky blonde hair and the bright blue eyes.  Little did I know back then how impossible her hip to waist ratio was nor did I understand the feminist backlash against Barbie.  I only yearned to be and look like her (tough feat for an Asian girl like me!)

But this Russian beauty, Valeria Lukyanov seems to have taken her Barbie obsession to an extreme!  Like the song goes, “I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world…I’m a blond bimbo girl, in the fantasy world dress me up, make it tight, I’m your dolly” she has dressed up and become a Barbie girl in her own little Barbie world!

There has been a lot of recent debate about whether she is real or not given her exaggerated measurements,and possibly airbrushed and plastic look so I did a little investigation and found the below video of miss Barbie revealing one of her transformations, okay this was not the traditional Barbie look but it was the only before and after makeover video available online.  Check out this fascinating make-up tutorial.  I don’t know if it was the mystical music but I found this video quite mesmerizing.

I actually picked up a trick and will have to try out her nose contouring tip.  Through the ever-handy Youtube, I found another Barbie wanabe, this time a young Asian girl!  Turns out you CAN be Asian and still look like Barbie!  Watch this!
And below is quite possibly the most life-like doll face.  This 15 year old named, “Venus Angelic” reveals her magical makeover and achieves an anime-like doll face below.   What do you think of all this?

You Barbie fans should read my earlier article on Barbie’s closet, found at NY Fashion week or Barbie’s Vegas hotel room found here.
