Barbie Loves Forever 21 I have been waiting for this moment since I was 5 years old. At long last, I will soon be able to dress like Barbie.
Yes, that Barbie. As in THE Barbie doll. She of the ridiculously proportioned figure, sure, but also of the fantasy ball gowns, the hilariously impractical "career gal" suits, the purple monster-fur coats. Mattel is collaborating with Forever 21, Lord and Taylor, and Wildfox to create lines of women's clothes inspired by Barbie. And I can't wait.
Talk all you want about setting more realistic expectations for body image. If we're talking about just the clothes, I am all for this.
