Barbie Models in Sports Illustrated 50th Anniversary Swimsuit Issue

Sports Illustrated has just finished half a century of popular photographic journalism. Some of its hottest models are featured in the swimsuit issue. They include everyone from Heidi Klum to Kate Upton and this year there is an additional female. And that is Barbie

The doll that started it all is back with a vengeance and she is clearly unapologetic about her measurements. Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue celebrated the ultimate form of feminine pulchritude that is Mattel’s Barbie doll.

A photographer for the magazine has taken blown-up shots of the baby doll that is fit as a fiddle. She is portrayed in her black and white striped swimwear. This is the age of plastic we are living in so who better to illustrate the beauty industry than Barbie. 

The tag-word attached to the photo of the doll is “unapologetic”. Since each year Barbie provokes a war of words regarding the stereotyping of the female form and body image, this message was made clear by Mattel. 

Each person, fat or smart or thin, should embrace her form for that suits her quite well. Barbie is a cultural symbol and sign of the American Dream. All the females that displayed their assets in the Swimsuit Issue have their finest features distilled in the perfect form of a Barbie doll. 

Meanwhile, Lily Aldridge, Chrissy Teigen and Nina Agdal were the main attraction of the February edition of the Swimsuit Issue. The three topless beauties caused quite a storm among the males of the species by their sexually provocative cover shoot. Sports Illustrated is renowned for its scantily clad models that are easy on the eyes.
