This is What Barbie Would Look Like with Normal Measurements
Whoa. We can’t get over these images of Barbie completely made over as a normally-proportioned girl. Artist Nickolay Lamm—who’s also created images to show us what humans could look like in 100,000 years—has completely reconstructed little Ms. Barbie to reflect the measurements of an average 19-year-old American girl. Lamm pulled data from the Center for Disease Control & Prevention, then created a 3D model of the doll (with a little help from Photoshop) for a side-by-side comparison. We’re thinking she looks pretty darn good. 
For more pictures—and to see Lamm’s thoughts on what Mattel could possibly do to embrace this much more body-positive version of Barbie—hop on over to Bust.
What do you think of this new Barbie?
