Human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova: Race-mixing has lowered beauty standards

Valeria Lukyanova, the Ukrainian model who lives her life as a "Human Barbie" doll, said she has only gotten one plastic surgery and said all women want to be skinny.

"Everyone wants a slim figure," Lukyanova told GQ. "Everyone gets breasts done. Everyone fixes up their face if it's not ideal, you know? Everyone strives for the golden mean [in beauty]. It's global now."

Valeria described her blonde ice-princess look as Nordic, and said race-mixing has caused a "degeneration" in beauty standards.

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. I love the Nordic image myself. I have white skin; I am a Nordic type—perhaps a little Eastern Baltic, but closer to Nordic."

The tiny-waisted Valeria said she's on an all-juice diet and works out three days a week and runs "a lot." Last month, the Human Barbie made headlines after revealing she wanted to convert to the extreme breatharian diet and subsist on nothing but air and light.

"In recent weeks I have not been hungry at all," said Lukyanova. "I'm hoping it's the final stage before I can subsist on air and light alone." For now, it seems she has opted for a low-calorie liquid diet instead of completely starving herself.

Meanwhile, Lukyanova said she has no desire to have children because the very thought of motherhood disgusts her. "The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me,” she said. "I'd rather die from torture because the worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle."

Valeria also slammed rumors that her Barbie-doll beauty is the result of numerous plastic surgeries. She said she has only had breast implants, and the rest of her looks is due to makeup.

"Don’t believe any stories about me having rib-removing surgeries — they aren’t true," she said. "The only surgery I had was the breast surgery. My mother’s waist is as narrow as mine. I inherited that from her."

When asked why she prefers to live her live as a Human Barbie, Lukyanova said she wants to inspire others. "The Barbie doll looks perfect; it was created as a human idol. I believe the way I look inspires other people to improve their appearance, eat healthy, and live a more active, creative life."
