Barbie Gets Real

In an effort to bring awareness to National Eating Disorders Awareness Month, Galia Slayen decided to create a life-sized Barbie based on the iconic dolls dimensions. 

If Barbie were a real person she would be about six feet tall, and have 39-18-33 Bust-Waist-Hip measurements.

Slayen, a former anorexic, fashioned her Barbie in a size “00” jean skirt that she herself wore in the midst of her disease.

I think this is a powerful message on body image and the effects it has on girls, young and old alike.

XOXO,
Mia
