A 26-year-old from the Chinese province of Guangzhou has attracted a 700-thousand strong following on Instagram as well as an army of fans on Weibo, a Twitter-like Chinese social network. She resembles a real-life anime doll with her wide-open eyes, porcelain skin and gentle features.
Some dub Kina Shen a gothic Barbie for her love of black lace tops, corsets and mesh bodysuits.
In contrast to other real-life dolls, who go to great lengths to hide their true appearances, Shina makes no secret of how she gets the alien-like looks. The model even posted a makeup tutorial on her YouTube channel.

The young woman insists that she got her stunning looks from her mother rather than via surgery.
She even sometimes gives her followers a sneak peek of the real-life Kina, posting photos with little makeup.
Besides modelling and developing her Instagram account, the Chinese real-life Barbie, who graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles, aspires to have a career in the fashion business.
