Barbie is one of the most popular dolls in the world, and she has been a symbol of femininity and beauty for decades. But what about when Barbie grows up?
Some imagine Barbie as a successful businesswoman dressed in a power suit and carrying a briefcase. Others imagine her as a glamorous socialite, wearing designer clothes and hobnobbing with the rich and famous. And still, others imagine her as a mother and homemaker with a loving husband and a couple of kids.
Whichever version of Barbie you prefer, one thing is for sure: she always looks fabulous!
