Entering the sweepstakes for the most doll like and beatific is Russia’s Angelica Kenova who is said to be the new Human Barbie doll in town.
From Moscow and still living at home at the ripe age of 26 year old, Angelica confesses since birth she has been dressed up as Barbie and is only ever allowed to go on dates if her mother, Natalia, accompanies her.
Not to fear gents, Angelika also confesses she has never had a boyfriend and to date has retained her chastity. Indeed.
That said, Angelica who claims to be a model, child psychologist and ballet dancer – regularly poses for skimpy photo shoots which her parents (naturally) approve of.
Like Barbie doll, Angelica boasts the same unrealistic body proportions and wide-eyed features.
She has a tiny 20-inch waist, a 32E bra size and weighs a minuscule 6 stones and 5lbs.
Explains our new alter ego hero: ‘Growing up, my parents raised me like a princess and never let me go out, date boys or have the usual adult experiences.
‘As a result, I am not fit for real life – I’m like a living doll.
‘My mother and father, Evegniy, have been overprotective all my life.
‘Some parents practically chuck their child out of the family home when they reach the age of 18 but not mine.
‘But my parents are so proud of me today and they encourage my modeling work.
‘Since I was a child, my parents styled me as a ‘Barbie’ so I’m glad that I’m equated to one – Barbie is the idol of girls around the world.’
Growing up, Angelica concedes she was given the best upbringing and education that money could buy.
Offering: ‘My parents called me ‘the princess’. They always bought me the best toys.
“They sent me to the most prestigious educational establishments around and took great care to protect me from any problems.
“You could say, my parents gave me too much attention. I was not allowed to do anything without their say-so.”
However one thing that Angelica’s parents happily permitted her to do was dress like a doll.
She explains: “I did not choose this image of a doll myself, my parents did. When I turned six, my mum started buying me collectible Barbie dolls and enthusiastically dressing me up like one.
‘My mother was also very beautiful – in her youth, she looked like Brigette Bardot.
‘My mother loved Barbie’s slender beauty, golden curls, cute face and beautiful clothes. My mother inspired me and urged me to be exactly the same.
‘I would pose in the mirror for hours and put on performances for my parents’ friends. Everyone nicknamed me the ‘Russian Barbie”.
From then on, Angelica was on a mission to look like the famous figurine and her parents were happy to financially support her dreams.
She explains: ‘When I became a teenager, my parents hired a personal trainer who created an individual training program for me.
‘He has designed exercises which will help me tone my buttocks and hone my narrow waist.
‘I work out with him for 2-3 hours five times per week to maintain my beautiful figure. He makes me do a mixture of weight training and cardio. I jog in the mornings too.
‘My personal trainer also advises me on my nutrition although I do not want to reveal my diet – it’s a secret.
‘But I advise people to smile and love yourself. That is one of the secrets to natural beauty.
‘And I have never had plastic surgery! Cosmetic work is only necessary when an individual has serious faults with their face or body.’
Angelica’s striking doll looks have since gained her a devoted band of followers on Russian social network VK.com.
She is also an in-demand model and is regularly hired for raunchy photoshoots. Naturally.
Explains the well heeled model: ‘I have lots of fans around the world now and their number is growing every day. I receive hundreds of letters in the mail.’
‘I have many ambitions for my modeling career – I would love to be a Playboy Playmate one day. They are so beautiful.’
However despite her newfound fame, Angelica still lives with her parents and can only date men with their absolute approval.
Reflects Angelica: ‘Given how old I am, I should be independent but my parents insist I still live with them.
‘My mother and father don’t want me to move out of the family home.
‘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.
‘My mother also demands that she accompanies on any dates. I have to book a table for three people so she can sit at the same table whilst my date and I have dinner.
‘So I’ve never had a proper boyfriend. All the boys I know are just friends unfortunately.
‘I understand that it’s bad that my mother accompanies me on dates with me and I should be independent by now but I just can’t.
‘I really love my family and I don’t want to upset them. If I ever decided to live apart or do something against their will, it would be a scandal!
However Angelica is still hopeful that she will find her true love and that her parents will approve of him.
Explaining: ‘I am waiting for my one great, true love. I do not like sugary, cute boys. I’m interested in brutal men whose eyes reflect their strength and pride.
‘I also like men who are not vain or absorbed in their appearance – that is very unattractive. My future husband will be very career-driven too.
‘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!’
