Ukrainian internet sensation Valeria "Real Life Barbie" Lukyanova has a twin Barbie look-alike and they hope to move to America together in the near future, according to a new report.
Lukyanova, who captured people's attention this year with her striking resemblance to the Barbie doll, and 24-year-old Olga "Dominica" Olyenik, who also transformed her look to resemble the doll, are holding lectures on spirituality and will soon bring their widely talked about looks to the United States, the Daily Mail reported.
"We met on the internet five years ago,' said Lukyanova, explaining that both girls come from the Ukrainian city of Odessa. "We had the same hairstyle, make-up, and even dressed in a similar way. Our friends were sure that we were blood sisters. We are really sisters - but only in spiritual way. We have the same outlook and lifestyle."
The two hold lectures for 50 euros a session and Lukyanova spoke about moving to America with Oleynik and their respective partners.
'We are planning to move to America soon. Dominica's boyfriend is living in the US and my husband wants to start a business there too," Lukyanova said. "I am not going to be bored abroad, I'm often invited to photo-shoots and parties."
Lukyanova has been called "a fraud" by reports that claimed she used PhotoShop to edit and alter her photos to make her appear more doll-like. However, in an interview and photo spread with V Magazine, the publication defended Lukyanova and said she is "very much real" in her resemblance to the children's doll.
"We brought this viral phenom to New York City, entranced by her unnaturally thin waist, dramatic curves, and trendy, new age sense of style," the story read.
Lukyanova told V she does not take the criticism to heart, saying that if she seems unreal to people, it means she is doing "a good job."
