So I'm out in Providence last weekend chillin' in a few of the clubs with some friends, when we notice this girl who looks like a Asian barbie doll. Like an actual doll..plastic if you will. As we debated what to think of this (and yes some of my friend thought it was hot) On the other hand, I was not impressed by the attempt at perfection. Later on, I did a little research and found out that what I had seen is a new upcoming trend. Valeria Lukyanova is, by most accounts, a "Living Barbie."


Back in April, the Ukranian model became an online phenomena when photos of her doll-like features and Barbie proportions went viral around the world. Lukyanova and others like her have spawned the "Barbie flu," a trend among girls in the Ukraine who attempt to attain near-unrealistic standards of beauty.

What do you think?
