Today is the anniversary of the day that the first Barbie doll made its appearance at the American International Toy Fair in 1959. As you probably know, that toy did pretty well. Over one billion Barbie dolls have been sold in over 150 countries. Barbie was the first doll to be marketed extensively on television. It’s marketing strategies like that (and possibly inventing National Barbie Day) that have helped make Barbie one of the most popular toys of all time.
In honor of this day, we found 25 women who look the most like a real-life Barbie. Although Barbie’s proportions are completely inhuman, these women come pretty darn close. Ukranian model Valerie Lukyanova even had several plastic surgeries to look like a real-life Barbie. That’s taking it so far that it’s creepy, but check out the gallery below and enjoy National Barbie Day.
