barbie turns 50

barbie’s body has come under criticism for offering girls unrealistic expectations of womanhood, and even for inspiring eating disorders and related pathologies. barbie performed an array of powerful careers, has a closet full of couture, a doting metrosexual boyfriend and very little pressure to marry and procreate. that’s why barbie looks pretty good, for a woman of a certain age. for the 50th anniversary of barbie, designboom presents a snapshot report with over 100 images of the making of barbie, from a designer’s point of view.
