Russia’s latest human Barbie has virtually just stepped out of the box.
Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, is set to steal human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova‘s pink plastic crown.
Angelica also claims that from young she has 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 explains. ‘As a result, I am not fit for real life – I’m like a living doll.’
According to Angelica her parents manage her diet and strict exercise regime, helping her maintain her uncanny doll-like figure – her 20-inch waist and a 32E bra size.
Angelica still lives at home with her parents who have dressed her up as a Barbie since she was a kid, her mum Natalia still picks her clothes today.
‘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.’
Angelica claims that her good features are all down to her special diet plan and daily workouts at the gym with her personal trainer – not plastic surgery.
‘I have never had plastic surgery,’ she says. ‘Cosmetic work is only necessary when an individual has serious faults with their face or body.’
Angelica has always been a Barbie girl in the eyes of her parents.
‘When I turned six, my mum started buying me collectible Barbie dolls and enthusiastically dressing me up like one.’
Angelica says she’s made it her life’s mission to emulate the world’s most famous doll, much to her parents delight.
One day, however, Angelica admitted that she would like to leave home and maybe move into her very own Dreamhouse with the man of her dreams.
But, she’s not after any old Ken doll though. ‘I am waiting for my one great, true love,’ she says. ‘I do not like sugary, cute boys.’
She also added: ‘My parents have kept me in a glass palace all my life but one day hopefully, I will be able to break free. It is never too late to start an independent life.’
