Valeria Lukyanova Before Photos

Our recent article, discussing Ukrainian "Living Barbie" Valeria Lukyanova left us wanting to know more about this internet sensation. So we decided to sniff out some of Valeria's "before" photos to see just how drastic her transformation into a "living doll" has been. Check out these photos to see how much she changed.

The first three photos depict a young lady who is certainly attractive, but by no means resembles the “Living Barbie” photos scattered around the internet.

We were also able to locate, what I’d describe as “during” photos. These appear to have been taken in the middle of Valeria’s transformation. Notice that her nose has been altered, but more work was done on it later.  Her hair is lighter and her skin seems to be devoid of her natural freckles, probably covered by makeup. Her eyebrows are higher and her upper lip appears to be fuller.

And finally, we have the extreme “Barbie” look, complete with button nose, large eye lashes, and circular eye lenses to give Valeria that doll-like appearance.

While some could argue that Valeria should have stopped at those “during” photos, her extreme transformation has made her a worldwide celebrity. This young lady, like it or not, has struck a nerve in many who either love or hate her new look. It will be interesting to see if she’s able to parlay the curiosity in her transformation into some sort of career.

    Your pre-barbie doll photos just don’t feel right. They are photos of a different persons. They cannot be the same person.

    well no she’s real her face is real but her body is not i don’t think so and that girl is not valeria … i knew it from her left eyebrow bcz valeria’s has fell and she had to draw it and this girl her eyebrow is fine so fake picture and valeria’s face is real

    She is real. But, as your other article states, it depends on what you believe to be real. This woman could be called beautiful; her new look could also be called utterly fake. I believe this should not be permitted to be viewed by women. Not your article, her. This promotes eating disorders, because not everyone can be as deathly skinny appearing as her. Also, it just tells girls: you can be barbie. If you work hard enough, if you feed the economic monster of plastic surgery, you will be perfect. You will be beautiful. It is just wrong. If she is not a model, and she is simply a regular woman, okay. But, displaying this as an image of beauty to other people is a disgrace, because she has made herself from a natural beauty to a fake. I am a 16 year old female who is tired of seeing this unjust image of “beauty”. It is not beauty. It is money.

      I totally agree with you. I’m also tired of all these images of “perfect woman” which become more popular every day. It is just wrong. It destroys the idea of natural beauty ( and by this I mean the beauty of the body but also the BEAUTY OF THE SOUL AND MIND). Now almost every woman try to be perfect which is totally impossible because everybody has its own taste and the so called “barbie look” may look just so fake..

      Beautiful response, wow. Very well worded. I may just be weird, but these photos are just really cool to me and don’t make me want to starve myself or get plastic surgery. I think I’m perfect just the way I am.

  • Goda

    She is not beautiful. It seems to me that she is all fake.

  • sourmale

    Such images like of her just distort the notion of beauty.
    Nowadays it’s just fake boobs, surgically enlarged lips, a ton of make-up, fake eyelashes, penciled eyebrows, all of it and some more along with perfectly photoshopped pictures may make a miracle and transform every girl into ”beauty”.
    How about brains? Doesn’t it count in today’s world anymore?

    Just wash off her make-up and see if she’s still, as she claims, so ”beautiful”.

      Well stated! Just the other day I noticed a friend who obviously Photoshopped a bikini photo of herself to get rid of some belly fat. Where does it end?

  • Amber Marie

    She’s is beautiful. I used to work in cosmetics and there is a lot you can do with make-up. The only thing fake is her bust which she herself admits. Where I live, people say stop hating, and that’s exactly how I feel. Just saying. This young lady is a true gem.
