Welcome to 2016, Barbie!

Barbie has been breaking boundaries for generations; she went to the moon before Neil Armstrong, she ran for President before Hillz and she took up computer science before it was mainstream… all while rocking killer heels. And now for her latest and greatest feat, Barbie will become… normal?!
Mattel, the maker of Barbie, announced recently that the world’s best-selling doll will now be offered in different shapes & sizes; tall, curvy and petite. In addition, 7 skin tones, 22 eye colors, 30 hair colors, 24 hair styles and 14 face sculpts will soon be available. The reaction of women everywhere (except Valeria Lukyanova, who is wondering why the fuck she has been subsisting on nothing but air when she could have just waited a few years for Barbie to catch up to her look) is a unified, “Finally!” One might think that Barbie would embrace a realistic standard of beauty before performing surgery or training to be an Olympic athlete, but hey, girl’s got goals.
Meet the new generation of Barbie.
