Here's what Barbie would look like if she was a real woman
Got the one and only walking, talking…

FOR MORE THAN 50 years Barbie dolls have been a childhood staple, with their impossibly hourglass figures, blonde hair, and heads like an orange on a toothpick.

Just how realistic is Barbie’s body though?

Artist Nickolay Lamm has created an image of one of the iconic dolls using the average measurements of a 19-year-old woman, according to the Centre for Disease Control in the USA.

Lamm printed a 3D model of the “real” Barbie and then photoshopped her to look like the doll.
