Barbie Page 1
Mattel’s “Dolls of The World Collection” was intended to increase awareness of different cultures among the younger generation, but some of the dolls have women up in arms.
Back in April, we came across Valeria Lukyonova, a 21-year-old Ukranian with a truly unique look and ridiculous Barbie-esque body proportions. Of course, we wondered if she was indeed real or just the result of some heavy duty Photoshop. Well, V magazine took that question to the next level with an interview and spread with the real-life Barbie, and well, she’s as real as real can be.
Just when you thought Barbie couldn’t get any more fabulous, The Blonds go and puts her in an outfit like this.
And her name, of course, is Barbie.
Have you ever seen a real-life Barbie? No? Well, 21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova bears a striking resemblance to the real thing. The Ukranian model has the doll’s plastic-y skin, long blond hair, wide eyes, thin nose, and (of course!) an insane chest-to-waist-ratio.
Barbie just unveiled its latest “I Can Be President” doll — and she’s the most stylish to date, thanks to Chris Benz.
Fashion’s favorite exotic bird romps around an eery mansion, perches at an open window, and poses as a gilded statue in this Tatler spread.
Help us decide whether this is cute or creepy. Mattel, the company that makes Barbies, is making a limited edition of dolls that look like Kate Middleton and Prince William to celebrate the couple’s first wedding anniversary.
Tens of thousands of people have gotten behind a campaign asking Mattel to mass produce bald Barbie dolls after the company made a one-off version for a young cancer patient last year. Now the only question is, will they actually do it?
Could a Kim Kardashian Barbie doll be hitting shelves next year?
Well, this is awesome. An African-American natural hair group in Georgia is gifting natural hair Barbies this holiday season.
Printable Barbie hair is the coolest! In honor of Barbie Design Printables, the talented team over at London’s Bleach salon has created some insanely awesome custom hair looks for the iconic doll.
Barbie is not normally synonymous with badass, but there’s a new girl in town. Hello, Tokidoki Barbie! We think you’re swell.
This summer was chock full of weddings, but the pictures from Barbie and Ken‘s nuptials might have to be our favorite.
Okay, there are a lot of not nice things we could say about Barbie. Most of them are things we learned about in college, and they shocked and saddened us. But this old school Barbie commercial (the first one ever, in fact!) is awesome as far as the fashion is concerned.
We already knew Anna Dello Russo was an icon, but now that she has her very own customized Barbie, she’s on a whole other level.
Barbie’s Ken doll is getting a lot of exposure these days — he’s in popular animated movies, on reality television, and now, in international fashion magazines. In the summer issue of GQ Style Germany, photographer Armin Morbach lensed a few pages called “Barbie’s Puppet.” We’re sure there’s something lost in translation there, but the name is really creepy. And so are the photos.
To honor the Year of Lady Gaga (what, you thought it was supposed to be the year of the tiger?) Entertainment Weekly has featured some of her most iconic outfits in the pages of its Entertainers of the Year issue. And to make the whole thing so post-postmodern it hurts, they miniaturized those looks and put them on another iconic and multifaceted blonde, Barbie.
Lara Stone has mastered the art of posing nude, so it comes to no surprise that the voluptuous model is smoldering for the cameras in French Playboy’s June 2010 issue. But while Barbie comparisons — at least when it comes to models — are not normally a bad thing, we think the mag might have taken things one step too far…
