Immaculate doll-face, globulous breasts, teeny waist, slender limbs, vacant ice-blue eyes, long platinum hair - Valeria Lukyanova of Odessa, Ukraine, has re-designed her physical form to resemble Barbie, the plastic Mattel toy. Is the result “beautiful”? Critics screech that she’s “creepy” and “lifeless” with an “uncanny valley” absence of sexuality, but… let’s not kid ourselves here.

couldn’t have said it better myself. BTW, like most supermodels, she looks dangerously underweight.

“Hmm. *I* don’t find her remotely attractive”
Perhaps you and Christian are a pair of contrarians? I think Valeria is great, just great. Goes to show you how subjective aesthetics are. If Valeria were to read this blog, the msg. would be “don’t pay attention to what saysayers think of your looks”. I do not trust anybody when it comes to aesthetics- esp. someone who would say a woman this beautiful is to be dissed merely because she had cosmetic surgery.
How ‘bout if one of your kin had surgery to bob her nose or something else relatively minor, and one or more of us here at IEET said she looked bad—you wouldn’t like it a bit. Some people are just very hard to please.

Its not that she’s ugly, its just that she looks a little too weird for others tastes in appearances. If you find her attractive then good for you. As they say “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.

“(For the general population. For the subset of very socially awkward ‘nerdy’ men, and perhaps only for them, I concede you are partly correct)”
*Sorry* to comment 4x today, but this is a truly specious statement. Look at Hank’s photo: does he look nerdy? no, and he almost certainly doesn’t find Valeria to be a turn-off. BTW, I mistakenly wrote saysayers above but it is on target anyway; you think Valeria is lonely? Hell no. I read she came to America and is doing well, thank you. So why don’t you do this, if you please: contact Valeria and ask her how the men around her react—get the story first person, guys.

(our msgs. crossed) if she would have me, Chris, I’d go for her- however I read she is happily married; possibly more evidence of how specious the first comment is—I am genuinely surprised at it.
Don’t like Valeria? then don’t post on her!

... actually, ought to congratulate Adamison, if Valeria appears unattractive to him, he must do pretty well horizontally. But to us she is pixels; in her presence we would have to re-evaluate our opinions.
