Real-life Barbie and Ken hate the sight of each other
London, Feb 2 : The first meeting of two cosmetically-enhanced models, who pride themselves on looking like real-life Barbie and Ken dolls, wasn't something that anyone could have expected.
Valeria Lukyanova, 23, who sports long peroxide blonde hair, a miniscule waist and large bust, flew from her home town in the Ukraine to New York to meet silicone-pumped Justin Jedlica, 32, for an upcoming episode of Inside Edition.
But Lukyanova didn't hit it off with her chiseled male counterpart - especially following his remarks last year that she looked like a drag queen - and she bluntly said after their rendezvous: "He overdid his lips."
According to the Sun, the pair "hated the sight of each other" and photographs show them posing awkwardly side-by-side, the Daily Mail reported.
Jedlica shot to fame last year when it emerged that he had spent 100,000 dollars on body sculpting procedures. This year he went under the knife for the 100th time.
"I've always been into plastic surgery because it's an extension of me being creative," he said during an interview on The Doctors television show.
Among his surgeries are five rhinoplasties, a cranial brow bone shape and augmentations to his cheeks, lips, buttocks and chin.
He turned to plastic surgery when he was 18-years-old, beginning the costly and dangerous habit with a nose job.
Lukyanova hit the press last fall after she posted a series of homemade videos on YouTube, which revealed her doll-like proportions.
To enhance her Barbie appearance she wears blue contact lenses over her naturally green eyes.
She admits that she has had breast implants, but insists the rest of her body is completely natural and slender due to daily gym workouts. Make-up and skimpy outfits complete her look.
In a previous interview with V Magazine she said that in the in mornings she likes to work on her face and get a massage and then spends the rest of her time on the internet.
Meditation is also a one of her favourite pastimes and she claimed that her "real job" is "a teacher at the School of Out-Of-Body Travel" - an institution which reportedly teaches students how to leave their physical body and travel in the spiritual realm.
Jedlica and Lukyanova had never before their recent television appearance, but they knew of each other.
Last November Jedlica said that he did find Lukyanova beautiful but he told the Huffington Post that much of her look is added makeup, fake hair and "slimming"corsets.
Drag queens have put on the same illusions with makeup and costumes for years, he said.
Lukyanova hit back, saying that Jedlica said bad things about her but he himself had more than 90 operations, while she had only one.
She added that she is not hiding that she's had plastic surgery.
She had breast implants because she wanted to be perfect.
