A teenager has revealed how she spends £1,000-a-month on cosmetic procedures to transform herself into a real-life Barbie doll.
Gabriela Jirackova, 18, from Prague, Czech Republic, relies on her parents’ money to pay for the lip fillers, hair extensions, and permanent make-up that give her the living doll look – and claims all the additions make her feel ‘sexier’.
The teenager, who started the transformation when she was just 16, recently went under the knife for the first time to have her natural C-cup breasts augmented to a G-cup in a procedure costing £3,200 ($4,500).
She said she now has more operations planned including butt implants, rib removals, and even bigger breast implants to create her dream body.
Gabriela is inspired by other high profile ‘living dolls’ and by actual Barbies and boasts a collection of some 300 different dolls.
She said: ‘I was inspired by other real-life Barbies and also my Barbie dolls. I had plenty of them as a kid. When I saw the real-life Barbies I thought that it was something for me. I have always wanted to stand out and thought this would suit me.
‘I don’t believe in a natural look. I think there is hardly anything natural today.
‘I spend three and a half hours every day getting ready. This lifestyle isn’t easy at all. Maintaining my image is difficult in all its aspects, financially, physically and mentally too.
‘There is a great pressure on me from the media, my fans, the haters, from everybody.’
Gabriela, who is inspired by well-known ‘living dolls’ like Pixie Fox and Lolo Ferrari, explained her journey started with ‘little adjustments’ like her hair before escalating to the dramatic boob job surgery.
Despite looking nothing like she did before, Gabriela insists she has never suffered from low self-esteem.
‘I have always been content,’ she said. ‘The fact that I like artificial beauty doesn’t mean that I have ever had low self-esteem.
‘My mum is happy to see that I am following my dream and that what I do makes me happy, but she is not keen on plastic surgeries.’
Mother Romana Jirackova, 53, who helps pay for her treatments, said: ‘She’d been slowly preparing us for it but we hadn’t realized how serious she was.
‘I am worried about her health no doubt about that, but how far she will go with it is her choice and I respect it.
‘I think that she is naturally pretty and even if she has some cosmetic procedures done I would respect that.
‘She’ll always be pretty, it’s always going to be her. What’s important is that she is going to be happy and fulfill her dream.’
Gabriela had her first boob job in September last year and says she is now ready to flaunt her latest assets.
Gabriela said: ‘I feel sexier now. I don’t know if I look more like Barbie, but I feel sexier. I’m definitely happier with bigger breasts.’
Through social media, Gabriela’s look has caught the attention of like-minded so-called ‘body tuners’ such as her friend Klara Lima.
Klara said: ‘I find it fascinating, how such a young person can bear so much pressure as Gabriel and more importantly how quickly she is progressing.’
Even though not everyone is in favor of her lavish lifestyle and raunchy outfits, Gabriela insists that she is a positive role model and has never forced her fans to replicate her Barbie image.
Gabriela said: ‘Many mothers condemn me for being a bad influence on their children and that I’m setting a bad example.
‘I believe I’m a much better example than the majority of other celebrities, who do drugs, change their partners, or even get involved in scandals. Those kids watch all of that and their parents don’t mind.
‘On the contrary, I have been always encouraging others to do what they want to do themselves and what they want to become. That’s the message I always spread.’
Gabriela now dreams of living in the US and said she is committed to the extreme Barbie-look for life.
She added: ‘I think I will definitely get there one day. I want to live in LA and become famous for my Barbie image.
‘I still want to undergo more cosmetic procedures. I must say I am more pleased with myself after each procedure, but I am not there yet.
‘When one chooses to do this, it takes several years maybe even their whole life. One can’t say I want to change it after a week, so I want to stick with my chosen path.
‘I will definitely continue my lifestyle as this is not a short-term thing.’
