the barbie brand

 
 

// Yes, yes. The Barbie brand has turned 50 this month as most know. Really, this wicked take on a look back ‘through the eras’ is worth watching! After the Courtney Love audio track comes the fashion show! Barbie’s inventor, Ruth Handler, was actually a founder of Mattel. The doll was based on the hourglass figure on Bild Lilli (so interesting, check it out) a German doll that in turn was based on a foul-mouthed, promiscuous newspaper cartoon character. I remember my Barbie being tortured, often finding her in pieces in her mansion with her hair cut off…if you have brother, you can relate…
