letter f resize 512x400 Bad Barbie by Mariel ClaytonBarbie… A name that signifies beauty, innocence and perfection. Mariel Clayton is an artist who decided to challenge that mentality with her photo series called “Bad Barbie”. Why? “Because I hate Barbie. I intensely dislike the stereotype that the “ideal” female fits no current authentic female form. You can’t get to be Barbie without an ocean’s worth of peroxide, 27 plastic surgeries and a complete lack of intelligence, so it irritates me immensely that this is the toy of choice women give to their daughters to emulate.”
