Looks like one very motivated Ukrainian woman has beat Nicki Minaj to the punch in becoming a real-life Barbie. Or has she? After a Facebook page popped up for impossibly doll-like Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova, 21, the Internet is abuzz with questions of whether she is a real girl or simply a plaything for avid Photoshoppers.

It’s hard to judge based on Lukyanova’s beyond-tiny waist and kewpie-on-acid-sized eyes. That her Facebook page was only started four days ago and has swiftly been flooded with perfectly manicured images does reek of a better looking Catfish. Regardless, Lukyanova’s popularity is growing by the minute (at time of press, she had more than 21,000 “Likes”). Either way, sorry Paris Hilton and Top Model‘s Allison Harvard, you’ve been replaced.

What do you think, PopWatchers? In the age of Jocelyn Wildenstein, is it really that inconceivable could look like this? If you were going to morph yourself into a pop culture icon, who would you pick?
