Finally, someone is giving poor Barbie a break and allowing the doll to wear flats for once in her life! Once known for her killer heels, Barbie is getting some options in footwear — and rocking them!
Barbie has been a staple for girls around the world since 1959, and one thing has stayed constant that whole time: her pointy little feet mean she can only wear high heels, platformed sandals and boots! But thanks to a brand new change to the doll’s legs, announced by Mattel on Thursday, June 4, Barbie is finally going to have the option of rocking a pair of flat shoes whenever she chooses. This tiny fashionista is only getting more fashionable!
The doll has always been criticized for skewing perceptions of what beauty looks like, and rightfully so! In neither our wildest dreams nor our best hair days will we closely resemble Barbie. But now, an artist has taken it upon himself to make Barbie look a ton more authentic.
A favorite amongst little girls, Barbie has been shaping perfection for over 60 years. And throughout that time, she’s been slated for not representing the average female. Criticism is dying down, though, thanks to a certain socially concerned designer. Artist, Nikolay Lamm, has created an amazing alternative to the traditional doll, Lammily, who comes with stick-on accessories to make her look a little more normal.

The Medium star has a fun-filled Manhattan adventure planned for her 7-year-old that includes making her own customized Barbie doll!
Patricia Arquette is one lucky mommy this holiday season. Even though her 7-year-old daughter, Harlow, seems to be asking for a lot of different presents this year, the one at the top of her list is to spend time with her mama! “For the holidays, Harlow’s list changes every day, and every day there’s another thing on the list,” Patricia, 42, told HollyBaby.com at Quentin Tarantino‘s Friar Roast sponsored by Samurai Love Sake in NYC on Dec 1. “She wants to come to New York with me.”
This Barbie doll has a hidden digital video camera inside her necklace, which we fear will cause children to unknowingly upload inappropriate videos. It seems like a pedophile’s dream… Have technological toys gone too far? What do you think?
When I was growing up, Barbie gained the ability to speak and she quickly came under fire for admitting that she thought “math class is tough.” Now the newest version of the iconic blonde doll has a hidden camera that can record 30 minutes of video footage. Wow, how the times have changed! (Don’t even get me started on what they did to the doll’s face! What is with those huge eyes?) While Mattel, the company that makes Barbie, may think this is just a way of keeping the doll, who celebrated her 51st birthday this year, current in the digital age, we worry that “Video Girl” Barbie will become an invasion of your kids’ privacy.
Katy loves to stand out, just like another iconic female — Barbie! Now the duo even have matching get-ups — but would you be willing to splurge on such a pricey item?
Katy Perry loves to make a fashion statement in bright colors, body-hugging dresses, and embellished get-ups and one of her latest outfits, a black and silver Swarovski crystal corset was no exception — but it’s also extra special. The corset, which Katy wore on Oct. 6 in Vienna, was custom-made by fashion designers The Blonds. However, considering the designers are re-creating the special item for a select number of Barbie dolls the item isn’t necessarily one-of-a-kind — but this limited edition collector’s item is sure to cost you!
