An unconventional beauty is receiving lots of attention for her innocent, doll-like face and her Hulk-like muscular body.

Eighteen-year-old Julia Vins reportedly has a committed group of fans from all over the world that marvel at her porcelain face and incredible strength. Vins holds three powerlifting records and can reportedly deadlift 400 pounds, but you’d never know it by just looking at her face.

“People know me as 'Muscle Barbie' - I like this comparison. It's nice,” Vins admitted. “I have these big, beautiful eyes and wear make-up. But at the same time, I'm strong. I can deadlift 180kg (396.8 pounds) in training. I want to become as big as possible.”

Despite worldwide admiration, Vins says that her looks have actually divided members of the opposite sex.

“Everyone has an opinion on what I look like - they either respect my work or reprimand me for being a muscular girl,” Vins said. “But to be honest, I've noticed that the guys who are negative about my athleticism - are just jealous.”

Vins says that she got a lot of attention for her face growing up, but she never felt like it matched the body that she desired. Eventually, the 18-year-old started lifting and realized she had a passion for it. Now, she says that she commits herself to a diet and exercise regimen and continues to do lifting competitions. Even during her competitions, she claims, the young woman always wears make-up.

“I always wear make-up, even when I'm squatting. I think it's important to look attractive in any situation,” Vins said. “I make sure my hair is done up in cute plaits and ribbons. I like fashion too but it's very difficult to find nice clothes as my size is not standard.”

Vins notes that while per parents don’t get involved with her weight-lifting career, her 29-year-old boyfriend Sergei is “very hands-on.”
