Most daughters grew up playing with the iconic Barbie girl plastic dolls. While these statuesque, blonde and blue-eyed dolls are pretty, they only represent one type of female body. Graphic designer Nickolay Lamm came up with the creative idea to reveal how Barbie would look if she were realistically proportioned.
Nickolay Lamm replicated the average body size, shape and measurements of a 19-year-old American girl using a 3D-modelling system. After a white, miniature toy version was created, painted and clothed, Nickolay Lamm placed the new realistic Barbie doll version and side by side with the original Barbie. The contrast is simply startling as the properly proportioned Barbie girl is shorter, wider, curvier, bustier than the original doll.
