"The Human Barbie", Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova who became a web sensation and recently flaunted her figure and porcelain doll-like face in her first photo shoot for V Magazine, where she opened up about her obsession with looking like the timeless Mattel Toys icon, and not to mention her flying-with-the-fairies personality are equally disturbing according to a psychology expert.-->
"The interview from V, as well as photos of the so-called beauty, suggest a woman who finds her authentic self and the reality around her to be empty and uninspiring, causing her to create and live in a fantasy world of her own making," Los Angeles psychologist Dr. Seth Meyers was quoted as saying in an exclusive interview with celebrity website RadarOnline.com.
"Considering her from a strength-based approach, her efforts indicate an innovative and truly artistic orientation, where she uses her body as post-feminist performance art," Dr. Meyers claimed. "The problem, however, with such a perspective is that her ultra-contrived appearance caters exclusively to men’s fantasies of tiny waistlines and enormous breasts in women.
"Because men can't find this fantasy in real life, pictures of the Human Barbie send these men flocking to the internet for a cybersexual experience that casts the real women in their lives aside because they simply can't - and shouldn't - measure up," Dr. Meyers revealed.
