Barbie recreated with average woman's body

Posted: Updated:

A Pennsylvania artist has given Barbie a real-life makeover.

Nickolay Lamm recreated the iconic blonde Mattel doll using measurements more fitting of today's average 19-year-old female.

In the photos, Lamm's version of Barbie has a fuller face, adjusted waist and appears shorter than the existing doll.

Critics have long said that the thinner Barbie represents an unrealistic body image.
