Ken’s Dream House And Inferiority Complex


I’ve always had questions about the Ken doll. What’s his relationship with Barbie anyway? Does he like men or women? What’s up with the ascot? Where did he get all the money for his rad car? Well, this video promo for “Toy Story 3″ doesn’t answer any of those questions, but it certainly makes the famous doll look like a diva. But I guess you are bound to have issues when you have a plastic void where your manhood should be. Keep reading »

Jon Hamm Plays With Himself On “Ellen”


Oh, get your minds out of the gutter! It was a Don Draper Barbie Doll Jon Hamm played with when he stopped by “Ellen” this week. And it wasn’t just any ol’ Don Draper Barbie Doll either; this one was wearing an Ellen thong under his pants. But who can think about dolls — or anything else for that matter — when Jon Hamm is around? And lucky for us, he’s about to be around a lot more. He’s currently filming the fourth season of “Mad Man,” which is set to start airing July 25. That’s two months from today, y’all, not that I’m counting or anything. [via YouTube] Keep reading »

First the Palms in Las Vegas went Mattel-mad with a set of suites, now the super-swank Plaza Athénée in Paris has a special room decked out Barbie-style … for the sweet price of 1,600 Euros a night. Guaranteed nightmares? [BlackbookMag.com] Keep reading »

Real-Life Barbie

It’s pretty obvious just from her absent nipples and ginormous head that Barbie’s body doesn’t exactly resemble that of a real woman. But this handy infographic does a good job illustrating just how disturbing her proportions would be on an Average Jane. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

New Barbies Have The Faces Of Australian Models

Victoria’s Secret Angel Miranda Kerr made an estimated $3 million last year, making her the ninth highest paid model of 2009. But while she’s only just cracked the top ten on that front, she’s got something only one of the girls in front of her on the pay list can claim: an insanely expensive Barbie doll made in her image. Honestly, we don’t totally see the resemblance, but the diamond jewelry-wearing doll pictured is meant to be a mini Kerr — and yes, those diamonds are real. The doll was unveiled two days ago at Australian Fashion Week along with 11 other Barbies modeled after popular models. Aussies Abby Lee Kershaw, Elyse Taylor, and Catherine McNeil also made the cut.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Shrine To Barbie And Ken

Karl Lagerfeld’s studio is featured in The Selby Is In Your Place, and there’s a preview of the space on TheSelby.com. When we first saw this photo, we thought, “Does Karl have a seriously weird Chace Crawford and Barbie obsession?” But then we realized it was a picture of Chanel model/muse Baptiste Giabiconi and a bunch of Barbies, which was part of Karl’s “Barbie and Ken” exhibit at Colette last March. But it’s still a little scary. [The Selby] Keep reading »
