NEW YORK (PIX11)—  With a doll-like and seemingly inhuman figure, over-sized eyes and skin smooth like plastic, it should come to no surprise why people are so fascinated with Ukranian model Valeria Lukyanova.

After transforming herself into human Barbie, Lukyanova became an overnight celebrity, amassing throngs of fans on her Facebook page.

The attention soon turned to backlash as the model was faced with rumors of excessive plastic surgery.

In an interview with V Magazine out this month, Lukyanova shot down any speculation that she is a plastic surgery junkie, admitting she’s only had a boob job.

“I don’t take them seriously,” she said of the attacks. Valeria Lukyanova tells V Magazine. “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.”

The model’s magazine spread and interview appears in the December issue of V Magazine on newsstands November 15.
