The Editors Discuss: How Great Is The Real Life Russian Barbie Doll?!

You guys know about the Russian Barbie doll by now, right? Well, basically she is a Russian woman who wants to be a Barbie doll, but real! Editors Jennifer Wright and Ashley Cardiff must decipher the secret messages transmitted by this alien lifeform before she takes over the world by looking totally adorbz!

    It’s not just me, right? Her eyeballs are proportionally larger than normal, like a doll’s. How do they enlarge eyeballs??!! Or is that just a brilliant optical illusion?? That’s what’s driving me crazy about this woman, not the complex self-image issues.

      She might be wearing those weird circle contact lenses? That’s what I thought when I saw the pictures of her– here’s a link for reference if it’ll let me post: http://www.lenscircle.com/

      Phew! That’s totally it. Thanks, that was freaking me out.

  • Abigail

    I think she’s gorgeous. Jennifer: I’ll be the other person in your threesome! : ) I think it’s a bit odd, aspiring to be a Barbie doll, but after all, who doesn’t love a Barbie doll? : )

  • Megan

    I want to see “before” pictures. Plastic surgery makes a lot of people look like Joan Rivers; this girl looks a bit fake but not bad at all.

    And better if she lost the Lego hair bangs and the weird doll eyelashes.

    “Is that a venn diagram in your skirt or are you just excited to start learning?” is what I will be saying for the next week, much to my own amusement. :D

    When you guess do these ‘Editors Discuss’ columns, it is my absolute favorite and I pretty much die laughing a lot!

    • Ashley Cardiff

      Thank you!

  • Holly

    Her weirdly sectioned stomach pieces on the last photo remind me of when the boy played Tic Tac Toe on the dragon’s belly in Pete’s Dragon. I suppose that would make the boy Pete.

      This comment FTW.

    Really, a Barbie doll? Haven’t we, as an image-obsessed culture, found some impossible, unhealthy standard of beauty beyond the Barbie doll? Does it ALWAYS have to be fucking Barbie?

    I think she looks totally cute. I ended my war on Barbie once those horrendous Bratz dolls came out.

  • designer-couturecom

    Sleazy Barbie ? No thanks.

  • Austen

    Love, love, love your comments! Especially the ones about Dostoevsky; those made me laugh harder than I have in weeks. <3 Never stop being so fantastically funny.

  • Alanna

    Her abs though. I want them, but on me, obviously. She’s totally achieved her goal but damn, that must have been a lot of work.

  • miinxi

    how old is this girl?

  • Meghan

    Why is she wearing a bra in the shower? Also, I’m pretty sure she would disintegrate if she got wet.

  • Florian Schmid

    This is awesome! I hope this catches on.

  • kim

    OMGGGG this is possibly the funniest running commentary about a crazily fake woman I have ever seen!! I love the way that instead of just attacking her for being fake you make interesting remarks. Rib-thing is the best tho!! Omg Im at work and I think I genuinely scared customers with my crazed laughing!

  • Nadia

    She’s cute, but not very Barbie-like imo.

    • vera

      Agreed. She just looks like Paris Hilton.

  • K Minto

    Omg, you are two funny ladies!!!!!!! I could’ve died at slide three with the Dostoevsky observations, but your commentary on all the slides slayed!!!!!!!
