Real-Life Barbie Doll

Barbie_shaped_real_Nickolay_LammArtist Nickolay Lamm created the barbie doll in realistic proportions. He made a 3D model of Barbie to show that not only models give the wrong idea to girls but also the too skinny Barbie. So he gave Barbie the proportions of an average 19-year-old woman. Then photographed the two next to each other, so you can see the difference. Same hair, make-up and clothes on, but Barbie 2.0 is shaped like a ‘real’ girl!
