Reports confirm that 20-year-old Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova, infamously known as the Human Barbie, plans on moving to the U.S. and taking America by storm - along with her new BFF and fellow living doll look-alike, 24-year-old Olga "Dominica" Oleynik! Both young women, who undergo extreme measures to achieve their real-life Barbie doll looks, met five years ago on the internet and now consider themselves to be as close as sisters. Not only do the two petite, wide-eyed blondes share similar outlooks on life, beauty, and style, but they insist that they are connected on a much more meaningful, spiritual level as well. The Daily Mail reports that both women now plan on moving to the States in order to further capitalize on their double-threat doll-like looks.

Lukyanova and Oleynik are both natives of the Ukrainian city Odessa, and initially struck up a friendship due to their common interest in maintaining a very unique (and somewhat obsessive) Barbie-like appearance. The Human Barbie recently told the Daily Mail - "We were curious about our similarities... We had the same hairstyle, make-up and even dressed in a similar way. Our friends were sure that we were blood sisters. We are really sisters - but only in spiritual way. We have the same outlook and lifestyle."
Lukyanova - with her fair, porcelain complexion, tiny waist, and make-up enhanced features - looks as close to a Barbie doll as humanly possible. Standing next to Oleynik, the two girls look so eerily similar to the point of almost being indistinguishable.
After finally meeting in person, Lukyanova and Oleynik now earn a living by giving lectures on spirituality for approximately $80 per session. Many of the people that come to the girls aren't just seeking spiritual knowledge - many are just curious to actually see the Human Barbie in-the-flesh. Lukyanova even considers herself "the most famous Russian woman on the Russian-speaking Internet."
And according to both of the Ukrainian models - make-up is key to achieving their insanely-perfected doll-like facades:
Now, both real-life dolls hope to spread their viral-fame wings... all the way to America.
"We are planning to move to America soon. Dominica's boyfriend is living in the U.S., and my husband wants to start a business there too," Valeria explains. "I am not going to be bored abroad; I'm often invited to photo-shoots and parties."
When images of Lukyanova first hit the internet, many people criticized her for either getting extensive plastic surgery or photoshopping her pics to achieve such a unique Barbie-esque appearance. Lukyanova finally opened up about her Human Barbie persona in a recent exclusive interview with "V" magazine, insisting:
"Many people say bad things about people who want to perfect themselves. It's hard work, but they dismiss it as something done by surgeons or computers. This is how they justify not wanting to strive for self-improvement. It's how they explain their continued inaction. It's just an excuse. There are plenty of video clips on the Internet showing what I really look like. Some people even spread rumors about me and retouch my pictures to hurt me. But I don't take any of them seriously. I'm even flattered! It's what success is like. I'm happy I seem unreal to them, it means I'm doing a good job."

Lukyanova is apparently also good friends with Anastasiya Shpagina, the real-life Anime Girl also from the Ukraine.
