We all know we shouldn’t, but we’ll still do it anyway: judging someone’s parenting skills. We obviously don’t know their story or what their struggles are, but we’ll wonder why did they do this? Or why didn’t they teach their kids that? That’s how I’m feeling with this next story. Why did this girl’s parents raised her like a Barbie doll?
Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, has been working on her drastic look her entire life. Eating a special diet and having her own exercise programme so that she can maintain her Barbie frame. According to the Daily Mail 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.”
With a 20-inch waist and a 32E bust size, Angelica insists that she has never had plastic surgery because, “cosmetic work is only necessary when one has serious faults.” Her proportions are manipulated through a lot of intense training and exercises.
But, Angelica isn’t quite as wholesome or angelic as Barbie. Her parents encourage her to take more salacious photographs as a model. Which might be why her goal one day is to be a Playboy Playmate.
I’m not sure if this is her “rebelling” and telling the world about her story, or if this is all a big marketing ploy to get her noticed. Did her parents make her take selfies of herself all dolled up, too? Or how about wearing Barbie gear, while looking exactly like Barbie? It’s like a giant neon sign for those who couldn’t tell.
I, personally, find her very pretty, yet creepy all at the same time. And yes, I know there’s a lot of photoshopping here, still she looks creepily good. What are your thoughts?
