Barbie is the nickname of Barbara Millicent Roberts, daughter of the creator of the doll. If she was a woman of 1.68 m, she would have 50 cm of waist, 69 of bust and 73 of hip.
More than 70 haute couture designers have created clothes for her, including Gucci, Versace and Armani. More than 95 million meters of fabric has been used to make clothes. And the numbers are high in accessories: Barbie has already had more than 1 billion pairs of shoes and diamond jewelry valued at $600 thousand by Australian jeweler Stefano Canturi.
Artists are also inspired by this doll and one of them is Mark Jonathan that enchants his fans with dolls transformed into fabulous contestants of RuPaul’s Drag Race, an American reality competition television series.
