Introducing the Real-Life Barbie: Valeria Lukyanova

Why Barbie?

Valieria has been fascinated by everything about Barbie since she was five and has been captivated by anything to do with dolls all of her life. Interestingly enough, as a child she had a collection of over 50 dolls.

Before turning her life around Valeria did most of the usual teenage things. She drank and smoked and enjoyed hard liquor. When she was in her early teens, she did attempt suicide by taking a bottle of pills.
