When it comes to human Barbies, there are several versions of the female Barbie doll — but as far as we know, there’s only one man striving to become human Ken!
In case you haven’t heard of him yet, the man we speak of is Justin Jedlica. He gained fame a while back for having over 100 cosmetic procedures geared towards attaining a Ken doll appearance, and has appeared on both My Strange Addiction as well as The Doctors for his plastic surgery habit.
With this resurgence of human Barbie news, it’s only logical to update y’all on what Justin/Ken’s been up to!
He’s actually taken his passion for knifestyles and turned it into something productive!!
After enduring 145 procedures for over $168,000 (he recently had implants put in his biceps and deltoids), he’s opened up his own plastic surgery consultation business.
He happily revealed:
Back in 2000, Tyra Banks played the role of a life-size Barbie in the movie Life-Size.
And people have been trying to steal her thunder ever since!!
Just kidding, she’s probably not the one who started the whole “human Barbie doll” thing; we’ve all heard of people who want to become Barbies, right??
Like Blondie Bennett, who’s not only had plastic surgery to LOOK like the doll — she’s also embarked on a hypnotherapy mission to become totally brainless like one! Wouldn’t that end in death??
Then there’s Valeria Lukyanova (above), who’s been striving to look like Barbie for years. Remember that V magazine spread that kinda felt sorta creepy?
Well, now we’re learning how she achieves her absurdly small waistline.
Fostering a healthy body image is all the rage in the fashion industry these days!
For instance, major modeling agencies are now accepting models outside of their usual 5’10” - size 2 range, Tyra Banks has taken issue with the plus-size label, and models of all shapes and sizes have begun to grace high-fashion runways.
So is it time for the traditional Barbie doll to make a change as well?
With many young girls looking to Barbie’s curves and itty-bitty waist for an unhealthy source of thinspiration, many are saying yes.
A Facebook page dedicated to Plus Size Modeling recently posted a photo (above) asking followers if they would like to see bigger barbies in stores, and the response was decidedly mixed!
The responses ranged from:
"No one is naturally fat for gods sake, that's sending the message to girls that it's ok to look like this and be unhealthy.. How about we stop obsessing about being overweight and teach our children to eat healthy and get out and play…"
Nina Dobrev looked like a brunette Barbie princess at the SAG Awards, but it surprisingly doesn’t cost that much to look this fab!
Our princess-dress finder PennyChic blogger, Shauna Miller, went out and found the cheapest, chicest way to look like this.
Dress - $79 at Guess
Clutch - $14.99 at Target
Earrings - $24.99 at Target
Bracelet - $15 at Kohls
We can’t believe you can get all this for $133.98! Can U???
