Meet the New Human Barbie, Who Says She’s Been Raised As A “Living Doll”

Russia’s newest Human Barbie is virtually fresh out of the box.

Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, is after world’s most infamous human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova‘s pink plastic crown.

And she says she’s even been raised as a living doll.

“Growing up, my parents raised me like a princess and never let me go out, date boys or have the usual adult experiences,” Angelica says. “As a result, I am not fit for real life – I’m like a living doll.”

Her parents, she says, manage her diet and exercise regime, helping her maintain her extreme doll-like proportions – her 20-inch waist and a 32E bra size.

Those features are, Angelica claims, all down to diet and three hour workouts five times a week with a personal trainer – not plastic surgery.

‘I have never had plastic surgery,’ she insists. ‘Cosmetic work is only necessary when an individual has serious faults with their face or body.’

As well as being dressed up as Barbie since she was a baby, Angelica still lives at home, has to take her mum Natalia with her on dates and can’t even pick out clothes without her mum’s help.

“My mother and father don’t want me to move out of the family home,” she says, adding: “I’m not even allowed to buy clothes without my mum there – she likes to choose attire that clings to my figure and emphasize my good features.”

One day, however, Angelica admits she’d like to leave home and move into her very own Dreamhouse – as well as finding the man of her dreams.

“My parents have kept me in a glass palace all my life but one day hopefully, I will be able to break free,” She adds. “It is never too late to start an independent life.”
