Demure and stylish Barbie


13 April 2011

I'm an advocate of Barbie being a bad role model for children.

Yes, despite growing up with at least five Barbie dolls myself. Including one that could be pregnant or not depending on whether it matched your imagined storyline or not.

I digress...

I'm an advocate of Barbie being a bad role model for children. But under the incorrect circumstances. That is, if there is a parent involved in the child's life ready to impart their approval on their child whether they look like Barbie or not, that's a good step.

And a Barbie like this would be great as well!

Barbie wearing Christian Dior's "New Look" is demure and classy without the extra long hair and Miami clothing; and without the Bratz-like inability to breathe through her nose. Her jewellery even matches ... right up to her earrings.

She's beautiful! What do you think?
