Meet the new 'Human Barbie'

Unusual but true: Call me madam

Angelica Kenova, a 26-year-old model from Moscow, Russia, has been raised as a living doll since she was born.

She still lives with her hyper-controlling parents, who have been honing her look all her life - dictating her diet and exercise program so she can maintain her miniature six-stone frame.

Angelica has been dressed as a Barbie doll since birth and is only allowed to go on dates if her mother accompanies her. She also has a personal trainer to keep her 20-inch waist in check.

She maintains that her doll-like looks were achieved without plastic surgery and has amassed thousands of fans on social media.
