Meet Angelica Kenova, is the new 'Human Barbie', who not only looks likes like a living doll - but is treated like one too.
The 26 year old, from Moscow, Russia, still lives with her parents and has never had a boyfriend.
She has been dressed up as a Barbie since birth and is only allowed to go on dates if her mother, Natalia, accompanies her.
Yet Angelica - who claims to be a model, child psychologist and ballet dancer regularly poses for half-naked photos which her parents approve of.maintains that her walking-talking doll looks were achieved without plastic surgery.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.As a result, I am not fit for real life - I'm like a living doll.My mother and father, Evegniy, have been overprotective all my life.Some parents practically chuck their child out of the family home when they reach the age of 18 but not mine.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."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."
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'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.I work out with him for 2-3 hours five times per week to maintain my beautiful figure. He makes me do a mixture of weight training and cardio. I jog in the mornings too.
And I have never had plastic surgery! Cosmetic work is only necessary when an individual has serious faults with their face or body.Given how old I am, I should be independent but my parents insist I still live with them.My mother and father don't want me to move out of the family home.
"I'm not even allowed to buy clothes without my mum there - she likes to choose attire that clings to my figure and emphasize my good features.My mother also demands that she accompanies on any dates. I have to book a table for three people so she can sit at the same table whilst my date and I have dinner.
"So I've never had a proper boyfriend. All the boys I know are just friends unfortunately.
"I understand that it's bad that my mother accompanies me on dates with me and I should be independent by now but I just can't.I really love my family and I don't want to upset them. If I ever decided to live apart or do something against their will, it would be a scandal!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!"
