The Inspiration Board: The Original Barbie Doll
No matter how you feel about Barbie’s measurements, her impact on the self-esteem of girls, or her conspicuous consumption, you can’t deny that she’s above all else, a true fashion icon. Barbie has flashed a covetable wardrobe of clothes and accessories–sexy items for every occasion, whether it be lounging by the pool or having brunch with Midge and Skipper–from every decade since her debut. In fact, I especially like the vintage stuff, so I’m taking a bit of inspiration from Debut Barbie, which is a recreation from the original 1959 doll.
