Leave it to Vogue to come up with ridiculous styling for dolls.

I love the look of the last doll. Mostly I want her dress and jewelry.

In regular human size of course.

Totally, way to get with the times! I'm still waiting for an Asian barbie.

Yeah, pretty cool. We've got a barbie exhibition in Melbourne at the moment - comeback indeed.

Um, good for Vogue for embracing ethnic diversity, but - really - Barbie? Talk about unattainable body image.

My first Barbie was black. I picked her out when I was five, or maybe six. But her name was CHRISTIE, just so you know.
