Angelica Kenovo (Anzhelika Kenova), 26, from Moscow, Russia looks likes like a living doll – but is treated like one too. She has been dressed up as a Barbie since birth.
“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’s not allowed to pick out her own clothes. Not only do her parents select what she wears, they have also hired a full-time personal trainer and keep track of everything she eats.
Angelica Kenova and her parents claim that she hasn’t had any plastic surgery — which doesn’t appear to be possible if you look at the pictures below.
She still lives with her parents and has never had a boyfriend and is only allowed to go on dates if her mother, Natalia, accompanies her.
Those curves appear to be too spectacular to be real.
Yet Angelica – who claims to be a model, child psychologist and ballet dancer – regularly poses for half-naked photos which her parents approve of.
Angelica, boasts the same unrealistic body proportions and wide-eyed features as a Barbie.
She has a tiny 20-inch waist, a 32E bra size and weighs a minuscule 6 stones and 5lbs.
She says: “Growing up, my parents raised me like a princess and never let me go out, date boys or have the usual adult experiences.
And she had one dream since her childhood to become a barbie doll.
“As a result, I am not fit for real life – I’m like a living doll.”
“Some parents practically chuck their child out of the family home when they reach the age of 18 but not mine. My mother and father, Evegniy, have been overprotective all my life. But my parents are so proud of me today and they encourage my modeling work.
Growing up, Angelica was given the best upbringing and education that money could buy.
She says: “My parents called me ‘the princess’. They always bought me the best toys.
“They sent me to the most prestigious educational establishments around and took great care to protect me from any problems.
“You could say, my parents gave me too much attention. I was not allowed to do anything without their say-so.”
However one thing that Angelica’s parents happily permitted her to do was dress like a doll.
She explains: “I did not choose this image of a doll myself, my parents did. When I turned six, my mum started buying me collectible Barbie dolls and enthusiastically dressing me up like one.
“My mother was also very beautiful – in her youth, she looked like Brigette Bardot.
“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’
From then on, Angelica was on a mission to look like the famous figurine and her parents were happy to financially support her dreams.
She explains: “When I became a teenager, my parents hired a personal trainer who created an individual training programme for me.
“He has designed exercises which will help me tone my buttocks and hone my narrow waist.
However Angelica is still hopeful that she will find her prince someday – and that her parents will approve of him.
She says: “I am waiting for my one great, true love. I do not like sugary, cute boys. I’m interested in brutal men whose eyes reflect their strength and pride.
“I also like men who are not vain or absorbed in their appearance – that is very unattractive. My future husband will be very career-driven too.
“My parents have kept me in a glass palace all my life but one day hopefully, I will be able to break free. It is never too late to start an independent life!”
