Move over Valeria Lukyanova, there’s a new Human Barbie in town.
The 29-year old model from Ukraine has claimed the title of “real-life Barbie doll” or “Human Barbie” since 2012 after winning “Miss Diamond Crown of the World” and posing for several photos, some erotic, in Russian media. Over the past two years she has claimed that she only lives on sunlight and air and has expressed her dismay with race-mixing.
“Ethnicities are mixing now, so there’s degeneration,” Lukyanova told GQ magazine.
But now, to much of the public’s annoyance, Lukyanova isn’t the only female “living doll” phenomenon out there.
Introducing 16-year old Lolita Richi: she stands at 5 feet, 4 inches tall, has a 20-inch waist, and wears a 32F bra and contact lenses to make her eyes larger. However, the Ukrainian claims that she has never had any plastic surgery, does not Photoshop, and has never done any kind of dieting.
“I had great features to start with and I just improved on them,” Richi told Daily Mail. “My big breasts are natural although I something wear a push-up bra to enhance them. I have a gorgeous figure so I don’t even have to diet. I just eat whatever’s available in the fridge whether that’s sausages or fruit. I started wearing affordable contact lenses and make-up. My mother used to be an actress so I borrow her wigs. I feel comfortable and confident in my appearance. There are many women who want to look like this.”
But Richi didn’t always look this way, growing up as a tomboy who didn’t really care about how she looked.
“I never thought about playing with dolls when I was younger. I was always outside playing with the boys.”
However all of that changed a year ago when Richi began to adopt the doll look.
“I started dressing up like this because I want to look perfect,” she said. “I think that all women should be well-kept and immaculate. I wanted to be my own inspiration. If a girl doesn’t have beautiful eyes then they should wear contact lenses to sort it out. If they have a crooked nose, then she must do something about it, whether that’s plastic surgery or not.”
Despite that they are both from Ukraine, Richi claims that she has never heard of Valeria Lukyanova.
“I think I’ve achieved this image better than anyone else. I’m the ultimate vamp woman. People have openly told me that they’re jealous of me and how good I look. All of the boys at school fancy me as well but I don’t like any of them. They are not to my taste.”
Richi says that one of her biggest supporters is her mom, who takes all of her photographs.
“My mum doesn’t say anything about my appearance. She allows me to dress however I want. My mum’s proud of how I look.”
But despite her mother’s encouragement, there was no mention of a father or father-figure in Richi’s life.
