GQ's Michael Idov visited Odessa, Ukraine to meet Valeria Lukyanova, the human Barbie doll. Among other topics, we learn that the Barbie connection wasn't Lukyanova's idea, and that she apparently frowns upon what she calls "race-mixing."
"For example, a Russian marries an Armenian," Valeria elaborates helpfully. "They have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad's nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it's all good. Ethnicities are mixing now, so there's degeneration, and it didn't used to be like that. Remember how many beautiful women there were in the 1950s and 1960s, without any surgery? And now, thanks to degeneration, we have this. I love the Nordic image myself. I have white skin; I am a Nordic type—perhaps a little Eastern Baltic, but closer to Nordic."Next post
