    This Week’s Best of the Web, Featuring a More Proportional Barbie Doll

    Hey girls! Happy (almost) weekend!

    One of our goals here at PI is to bring you the best of the best on the web each week, so we’d love to hear what you are interested in knowing about. What do you love and want to see more of? Let us know in the comments!

    Has it ever bothered you that Barbie doesn’t represent the average woman’s body? If so, you might get a kick out of this! Artist Nickolay Lamm used the Center for Disease Control and Prevention’s measurements of an average 19-year-old woman to create a 3-D model, which he photographed next to a standard Barbie doll. Lamm then Photoshopped the 3-D model to make it look like a Barbie doll.

    “If we criticize skinny models, we should at least be open to the possibility that Barbie may negatively influence young girls as well,” Lamm said in an email to the Huffington Post. “Furthermore, a realistically proportioned Barbie actually looks pretty good. If there’s even a small chance of Barbie in its present form negatively influencing girls, and if Barbie looks good as an average-sized woman in America, what’s stopping Mattel from making one?”

    Do you girls agree? What do you think of the comparison in the photo below?
