“When curvy Barbie first came out, I was so excited to see that young curvy girls could finally feel like they could play with a doll that has a more realistic figure to their own. After watching studies, the impact Barbie dolls have on the young is quite astonishing. Making us want to even more so protect their minds and allow them to see that beauty comes in diversity. This shoot meant so much to me, not only because of the new aspects but because I’ve always loved Barbie growing up. It was so much fun to play a Barbie doll and get to see the new dolls in person. Thank you SLiNK and Barbie for letting me be apart of something so cool.” – Hayley Hasselhoff The latest issue of SLiNK magazine, Issue 20, is OUT NOW in print or digital format – www.slinkmagazine.com/slink-shop or through selected bookstores and newsagents in over 15 countries.
