What more could the supermodel obsessed want than a Heidi Klum Barbie?
She showed interest in the Mattell brand by attending Barbie's 50th birthday party in Malibu, but apparently, the company is equally enamoured by the German bombshell!
Pictures of Heidi Klum Barbie show her in a metallic micro-mini disco dress, made of (what else?) pink sequins. The doll has blonde locks and super long legs that go for miles (just like the real Heidi Klum).
Implications - Dolls are getting far more humanized -- not only with their looks, but with their attire as well. The playthings of consumer daughters are now embodying the iconic celebrities of their parent's generation. Society is now more hung up on aesthetics more than ever as Barbies mimic people and people mimic Barbies.
