Barbie makes a comeback

Everyone from Kourtney Kardashian to Kendall Jenner to supermodel Chanel Iman has fallen prey and posted a picture of themselves doing what has become known as #BarbieFeet. And it’s pretty simple to pull off.

All you need to do is strike a pose like your feet is clad in heels, only in this case the heels are imaginary.

How to pull it off

To make it work, don’t overthink it. The aim of the Barbie feet trend is simple, and the magic lies in making the legs look as narrow as possible by making your foot tiptoe, sort of.

Good enough, the doll makers have finally listened and made their dolls inclusive of all body types, so the trend is not limited to certain physiques. Anyone can do it, even while standing or sitting.

One would hope that the original human barbie, Valeria Lukyanova, is getting a kick out of this new trend inspired by her style hero.

Afterall, she did alter her entire physical appearance just to look like the famous franchise doll. What do you think about this trend?
