While apparently the notion that if Barbie were a real woman she wouldn’t be able to stay on her feet has been debunked, it is still absurd that this example of a perfect woman was, in 2009, criticized for uh, being imperfect. That is, Barbie’s ankles are too big.
BARBIE BOY: Christian Louboutin is the latest designer geared to give Barbie a makeover, with three dolls he’s conceived top to toe due to be released over the coming months. Louboutin has even reshaped the dolls’ figures as he doesn’t find the classic Barbie’s morphology très flattering. “He found her ankles were too fat,” said a Louboutin spokeswoman, who revealed one of the dolls would be released in time for the Cannes International Film Festival. “They’re completely wild and even come with mini Louboutin boxes for the shoes,” she said.
Now if the doll’s ankles are too fat, what of the real woman, Louboutin?
