Step aside Valeria Lukyanova, there's a new Human Barbie in town, and extraordinarily, she's been raised as a living doll since she was born.

Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, still lives with her hyper-controlling parents, who have been honing her drastic look all her life - dictating her diet and exercise programme so she can maintain her miniature six-stone frame.

The older she gets, the more difficult it will be looking like "Barbie". When reality smacks her in the face, hopefully, it doesn't drive her over the edge.

Surreal... but what is really bizarre is that she claims to be a child psychologist.

Someday she will discover the joys of a good pizza and beer.

A little on the thin side, but I wouldn't kick her out of bed.

What's with the Russian obsession with Barbie? And with modeling?

This is very sad. This girl will be severely handicapped in social settings. It's hard to tell from the article if she's aware that these values of beauty at any cost are warped, or not. One gets the feeling she regrets not having been able to be just a regular kid.

Why would someone want to look like Barbie in the first place? It's a doll for chrissakes. I never wanted to look like Barbie growing up I can't imagine how bizzare her parents are to force that sort of lifestyle. I love to workout but 3 hours everyday? She doesn't look bad but I wonder how many women really find that body type ideal?

The extreme nature of it seems a bit abusive. And I can't help wondering what the parents would have done if the girl hadn't grown up with a model's facial features (she looks plain as a child), and huge boobs. It's hard to believe the story's real. Her eyes as a child don't seem that big and round, though she says she hasn't had any cosmetic surgery.

It's also interesting that the parents believe that Barbie is every girl's beauty ideal. The toy is popular not because girls aspire to be Barbie, but because she's a fashion doll, and comes with a ton of accessories to dress her up with.

Meh these days it's the standard practice for a person that clearly looks altered to say they're natural. She definitely has had some work done. Photoshop and the right make up team also works wonders. Once you take away the surgery that she probably did get and the make up and photo shop she most likely is a very slim women with boobs big for her frame and a pretty face but most likely not in the same realm as a look alike Barbie. She's definitely been altered and it doesn't look natural. I feel sorry for her I just can't imagine growing up that way.
