Most Viral Photos: #8 Real-life Barbie

Russian model Valeria Lukyanova has a look that seems designed to get attention from a Web-driven culture. She grabbed Internet fame for looking like a Barbie doll: The exaggerated eye makeup and the disproportionately tiny waist coupled with Barbie's famous curves made her the self-described "most famous woman of the Russian-speaking Internet." Her photos look plastic, and there have been accusations that she doctors them. But no argument here: Her life-like doll photos have captured the fascination of the Web.
