Barbie has had her fair share of critics; it has long been argued if this plastic doll gives young girls a unrealistic perception of beauty and perfection. Now those critics have more reason to howl as the popular doll will make her swimsuit debut in the pages of Sports Illustrated.
The ‘perfect’ doll with her impossibly tiny waist will join some of the most beautiful women in the world in the popular swimsuit issue of the glossy magazine for the publication’s 50th anniversary.
Barbie will join some of the most beautiful women in the world for the magazine’s milestone, including, Christie Brinkley, Tyra Banks, and Kate Upton.
No doubt the choice to include Barbie will get tongues wagging, for better or worse she will remain an icon of beauty, like the models she shares the pages of Sports Illustrated with.
