“Normal Barbie” Has The Realistic Body Proportions Of A 19-Year-Old, Acne, Cellulite And Stretch Marks

Published 5 years ago

Digital artist and designer Nickolay Lamm once asked himself, “What if fashion dolls were made using standard human body proportions?” That’s why he created Lammily the “Normal Barbie,” which completely contradicts the classical Barbie doll. She has the realistic proportions of an average American 19-year old girl and all of the beautiful perfections and imperfections of a typical young woman.

The “Normal Barbie” pack, the first exclusive edition of which is already available (see the links below), features a collection of stickers that include tattoos, cellulite, scratches, stretch marks, acne, mosquito bites, and other things that most real people actually get over the course of their lives. This encourages young girls and boys to love who they are and avoid unrealistic beauty expectations.

When asked by Huffpost about his inspiration, he replied: “Barbie is a very iconic figure, so I figured it would be very fitting to create an average Barbie. And I also wanted to show that average is beautiful and that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to unrealistic beauty standards. And I feel Barbie kind of symbolizes that.

Don’t miss the video below of 2nd graders’ reactions upon seeing Lammily for the first time – they simply fell in love with her!
