Human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova has competition - meet Alina Kovalevskaya, a walking, talking, living doll.
The 21-year-old has made a splash with her YouTube videos showing off her doll-like charms - which she claims to have achieved without the help of plastic surgery.
Alina said: "From adolescence, I loved to change my image. It started when I was 13 years old.
"Since then I love to try something new. Now I have the image of a Barbie doll. I consider big eyes, small noses and small plump lips as beautiful."
The real-life Barbie hails from from Odessa, Ukraine - the same city as Valeria Lukyanov, who has made headlines around the world for her unique look and controversial opinions.
The pair were once friends, but their relationship has since soured.
The real-life doll added: “I have had certain misunderstandings with her after which we ceased to communicate. There was a certain negative attitude from her towards me and we were often quarrelling because of that and now we do not communicate.
"I know this person better now, I learned who she is while we had this confusion and I realised that she is not a person with whom I would like to talk or even be friends.”
Alina has 22,000 followers on Russian social network VK, and Alina is frequently bombarded with autograph requests, declarations of love and even marriage proposals - but she is still looking for love.
"I still have not met a worthy candidate for a serious relationship," she says.
The real-life doll, who also studies psychology and social work at Odessa University, is on the lookout for a husband, and says she would like to have two children and perhaps even adopt a child on day.
The elfin-faced beauty admits her parents find her Barbie look "a bit strange" and that her style sometimes attracts negative comments, but chooses not to take such remarks to heart.

"Some people like my image, some do not . But I take it as neutral. It's impossible to please everyone," Alina says.
The model has metre-long blonde hair and often wears contact lenses that give the effect of a blank, doll-like stare.
And despite living by the sea, Alina steers clear of sunbathing on beach in order to retain her milky-white complexion.
Surprisingly Alina grew up as a tomboy, adding: "I made friends mainly with boys so we were fighting for toy cars.
"I was not a big Barbie fan as a child, I just find this character interesting in human shape. In childhood I never had Barbie and played with the most ordinary dolls. I initially wanted to be just similar to the doll and then I decided to look like Barbie."
The 21-year-old dreams of living in a house in the woods or mountains with her dream man, and of one day opening a clinic.
And despite the conflict gripping the Ukraine, Alina is happy to remain a Barbie Girl in her own Barbie World.
"I'm dissatisfied with the situation in the country hope will be no war. Nevertheless I am an apolitical person I will not vote because none of the candidates inspire me any confidence," she said.
"I think we do not need to rely on any politicians, only on your own strength."Suggest a correction
