Barbie has had every job going and rocked every possible fashion trend in recent years (the engineering/computer scientist one made us chuckle) but her latest look- pink hair and tattoos has attracted the critics.
Behold the $50 limited edition Barbie by Italian Brand (with a Japan- inspired look) Tokidoki’s Barbie.
Has Barbie gone too far?
She does indeed have tattoos (parents apparently unimpressed) but also a frightening dog dressed up as a cactus called ‘Bastardino’ and that unrealistically thin body shape she’s associated with. Bad role model or just a bit of fun you decide!
The doll does seem to be a collector’s item for grown-ups though and even ASOS now sells LBD Barbies – presumably for fashion-loving women who want to hark back to their childhood.
Barbies aside, the iconic doll is only the latest in a line of celebs (Fearne Cotton, Katy Perry, Glee‘s Diana Agron, Lady Gaga and Lily Allen) to embrace pink hair. Who’s your favourite?
