For the 50th anniversary of the iconic Ken doll, GQ Germany decided to take a puppet or doll like approach to this creative advertising campaign. The shoot was done by Armin Morbach and features models Aaaron Bruckner as Ken and Alex Sandor as Barbie. The classic doll couple were syled by Klaus Stockhausen.

Morbach’s resume is quite extensive as she is a hair and makeup artist as well as a publisher and last but not least, a photographer. This shoot seems like quite an ingenious way of portraying the toy couple; it's perfect homage to a never-ending brand as well as a creative way to showcase fashion in the very prevalent GQ magazine. The Ken doll portrayal models were groomed by Sea Bascle and Lori Baur.
