Move over, Valeria Valeria Lukyanova, there's a new real-life Barbie in town.

This time, the doll-like beauty named Angelica Kenova hails from Moscow.

She also claims to be a model, child psychologist and ballet dancer and has declared that she has never gone under the knife.

Although, Kenova boasts tiny a 20-inch waist, a 32E bra size and weighs a minuscule 40kg (6 stones and 5lbs).

According to, the 26-year-old still lives with her parents and attributes her doll-like looks to her parents and her good diet and exercise regime.

She said:

"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 mum and dad 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.

“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.”

She added that her mother dressed her up like a doll from a young age.

"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’,” she said.  

From then on, Kenova was determined to look like the famous figurine and her parents were happy to supoort her dream.

Kenova says:

“When I became a teenager, my parents hired a personal trainer who created an individual training programme for me.

“I work out with him for 2-3 hours five times per week to maintain my beautiful figure.

"My personal trainer also advises me on my nutrition although I do not want to reveal my diet – it’s a secret. And I have never had plastic surgery!"

However, her parents are overprotective of their doll and Kenova added that she is still financially dependent on them.

"Given how old I am, I should be independent but my parents insist I still live with them."

She said:

“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. So I’ve never had a proper boyfriend. All the boys I know are just friends unfortunately.

"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."
