I often use Barbie’s physique as the focus of my lingerie designs. I used to create lingerie on a perfect size six figure and I was inspired by Barbie to design lingerie for the perfect woman.

There is an intentional absurdity and awkwardness to the clip since this white woman is clearly not Kimura Kaela.

With advertisement of the Barbie doll, gender equity closely intertwined with the portrayal of the doll. “Consistent with other commercial advertising formats, males were found in the leadership and authority roles, while females were generally portrayed in more passive roles.

The mid-1960s saw Quant at the stature of her distinction, when she created the micro-mini and the "paint box" makeup of 1966, and added little grey pinafore dresses that came to encapsulate the 1960s style time.
