Barbie gets a makeover
Designer reveals 'realistic' looking version of the famous doll.
Barbie has a new figure.
After years of criticism flying around the universe about the unrealistic proportions of Barbie, a non-Mattel-endorsed Barbie has been designed based off of real measurements taken from an actual 19-year-old American girl.
According to Time.com, the new doll was created by Designed by Pittsburgh, Pa.-based artist Nickolay Lamm, and shows a shocking difference from the original Barbie. “If Barbie looks good as an average woman and even there’s a small chance of Barbie influencing young girls, why can’t we come out with an average sized doll?” Lamm tells TIME of the idea behind the new doll. “Average is beautiful.”Living style: Plus size models
When the Barbie was originally created 63 years ago, she had a seriously tiny figure, measuring in with a 36-inch bust line paired and a tiny 18-inch waist, hardly the measurements of the average woman.Living style: Perfect vacation outfits
This isn’t the first time that Lamm has debuted a more realistic version of the doll. He also photoshopped an image which shows Barbie without any makeup.
