All about Barbies: keeping it glam in 2016

On 25 August, 2016, an American Journalist attended the Barbie exhibition in France. Although a 70s feminist and not-a-huge-fan of these dolls, she went ahead and paid a visit to the amazing exhibition that was held at the Musee des arts decoratifs at Louvre Palais. The exhibition had over 700 Barbie dolls that reflected the change over the years. The journalist states that although for a good deal of time the Barbie was white and each model had the same body proportions, however, now, there are barbies with 27 hair colours, 14 skin tones and many different figures.
