Valeria Lukyanova, the Ukranian model also known as “Human Barbie” due to her multiple plastic surgeries, spoke out on marriage, beauty and race in a recent GQ Magazine interview.
GQ Russia editor Michael Idov, who went to the woman’s hometown in the Ukraine, thought he’d discover someone who grew up “obsessed with dolls” but instead found a “racist space alien.”
According to The Huffington Post, Idov describes Lukyanova as: "Her brand-new hair extensions, the color of Chardonnay, hang straight down, reaching her nonexistent hips. Her mouth is frozen in a vacant half-smile; the teeth are small and almost translucent.
"She’s holding a handbag shaped like a lantern. A one-eyed smiling-skull pin perches on her sky blue top, pushed to the side by the veritable shelf of silicone around which her whole body seems arranged."
She talked about her need to alter her looks, saying: "Everyone wants a slim figure. Everyone gets breasts done. Everyone fixes up their face if it’s not ideal, you know? Everyone strives for the golden mean. It’s global now.”
But it was Lukyanova’s thoughts on mixing races describing it as “degeneration” that really shocked her interviewer.
She said: “For example, a Russian marries an Armenian, they have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad’s nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it’s all good.
"Ethnicities are mixing now, so there’s degeneration, and it didn’t used to be like that. Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this. I love the Nordic image myself. I have white skin; I am a Nordic type—perhaps a little Eastern Baltic, but closer to Nordic.”
Lukyanova also thinks having children is “a deep revulsion,” so in an effort to try to understand her and her extreme beliefs, Idov writes: "It could be that the world and I have misjudged the Human Barbie in a fundamental way. Her steady drift from reality and into the twenty-first dimension is not about submissiveness, fame, or snagging a husband.
"It could be about finding a way out, however random, bizarre, and costly the route appears from the outside. It could be about gaining some measure of freedom."
