Barbie: Breaking away from the stereotype

Have you ever stopped to think about how the Barbie doll has influenced our perception of beauty? For decades, Barbie has been depicted as a tall, thin, blonde woman. But Fashionistas has put an end to this stereotype doll, which showcases Barbie with a variety of different body types and skin tones.

Barbie first hit the shelves in 1959, and she's been turning heads ever since. Barbie has come a long way from her original form, and her changes reflect the fashion trends of each decade. In the 60s, Barbie sported a mod look with her Poodle Skirt outfit. The 70s saw Barbie rocking some disco-inspired threads, and in the 80s she was all about big hair and bright colours. These days, Barbie is more diverse than ever before with the Barbie Fashionistas range, with dolls available in all shapes, sizes, and skin tones. Representing global diversity, Barbie reaches out to several cultures and is a true icon of the present day, as much as she was in the sixties. 

Barbie is an enduring icon of fashion and beauty, and she shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Barbie lets you embrace who you are, representing a wide range of people. Not only can you now find Barbie dolls with different skin tones, some dolls have freckles, while others have prosthetic legs. These diverse dolls really reflect the world today.
