The Doll House

#1 Valeria Lukyanova

Age: 29 years old

Location: Ukraine

Backstory: Valeria Lukyanova found internet fame thanks to her doll like looks and impossible figure, although many suspect that her images are the result of photoshop trickery, a fact she recently partly confirmed.

This real life Barbie is not just a pretty face though, she is also an instructor at the School of Out-of-Body Travel and a new age practitioner going by the spiritual name of Amatue.

Quote: "For a long time I thought I was from Venus. I didn't remember what happened before Venus because it’s hard to restore the memories of past incarnations on other planets."
