Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova, also known as the Human Barbie, has made the headlines once again. The 28-year-old Barbie wannabe has declared that she is converting to Breatharianism – a new age practice wherein survival is dependent on only light and air.
Lukyanova gained worldwide fame in 2007 when she won the title of Miss Diamond Crown of the World. She emerged the winner among 300 women. The beauty pageant did not have rules against women with plastic surgery.
Lukyanova makes use of contact lenses and makeup to make herself look like a human Barbie, which she says is the perfect body image for her. She admits to having breast implants, but says that the rest of her body, even her 50 cm waist, is all natural. Her slender figure is the result of special diets and routine gym workouts. Lukyanova has been on a strict liquid diet and was a vegetarian until she turned to Breatharianism.
The model says that she has not felt hunger the past few weeks and she is hoping that it is the final stage before she can fully convert to Breatharianism and live on light and air alone. The practice has stirred controversy, as people who adapt to it tend to die of starvation and be dehydrated within the first few days of practice.
Aside from achieving to have the “perfect” body, Lukyanova also claims that she is able to speak to aliens and can travel through time. She is also a spiritual teacher, an interest that she has had since she was a young. According to reports, Lukyanova said that her out-of-body experiences started when she was a little girl.
While her announcement to live on light and air alone comes as a shock to some, it has not been the strangest news that came from the Human Barbie.
