    Living Barbie: cute or disturbing trend?

    This just feels wrong. Look at some of the outfits. Who are these girls trying to appeal to?

    The only difference between this and posing for a porn magazine is that they're wearing mainstream clothes (or clothes, period).

    Can't deny that they have very pretty features (faces that is).

    Their clothes look ok to me. Nothing to get upset about IMO.

    Posing for a pr0n mag? Please. Pr0n poses have the girls made up so they look the same age or older. These doll girls look younger.

    This definitely disturbing. Venus looks dead in some of the pics. So creepy. Dakota Rose is very pretty though, and she doesn't get as near to the dead doll stare as Venus. Body wise she needs a few cheeseburgers. Ick.

    There's a girl on another site I frequent that could do this look sooo well.

    These do not look like Porn at all.

    I do not personally find them attractive but really don't see what is wrong here. Just the creep factor.

    They look like Stepford Children. Kind of creepy..

    That's what I was thinking - their eyes look so blank. Only saw one smile on the whole page linked (didn't look for more photos).

    It takes all kinds...
    Did you know that "Dammit, I'm mad" spelled backwards is "Dammit I'm mad" - well, I still am!

    Back in the day they use to call them models. IMO the parents are raising potential narcissists. As they get older their looks will change so how will they handle that? I see a lot of plastic surgeons in their future.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.

    What's unfortunate is that both of these girls/women would probably be stunning w/o any makeup, wearing sweatpants. There is definately a, I don't know, a "movement" or an aesthetic, or something, that kind of sexualizes child-like features like big eyes, small boobs, and narrow hips. I'm a limo driver, the company I work for does lots of work for some of the big fashion houses here in nyc. When I drive some of these models, they look like 6-foot-tall toddlers or something.I don't mean the famous supermodels like Giselle Bundchen or someone of that caliber, just the runway models you see footage of during fashion week. Its really weird.

    The comment section says Dakota Ostrenga is 19, which I suppose means she can make up herself to look like whatever... Another insists her image is photo-shopped. Wonder how much longer she can keep her image - people do age, you know?

    *shrug* I don't really see how this is any different from the other big fads in youth culture of the past. Emo, goth, hippie, gangsta chick...

    To be brutally honest, I see it as less disturbing than the mainstream trends I've seen amongst middle & high school girls this past decade, with girls going to school dressed like they are twenty-something clubbers looking for a one night stand...

    this doesn't particularly bother me much. i look at it this way. when most of us were growing up we had a movie star we wanted to look like and probably did our hair that way, wore our makeup that way among other things. anime is not much different, the kids become attached to the characters and want to look like them. weird? well yeah. but didn't our parents think many of the things we liked were weird also?
    we need to encourage harder sentencing on those that are harming our children. our children are worth it!!

    stop the circus!! these children as all children deserve to be found and justice brought forth for what has happened to them!!

    I've seen children wear much worse clothing and make up but one of the girls looks awfully skinny (the pic sitting by a tree, legs showing). If I was her mom I'd worry about an eating disorder.

    Pretty faces but still highly disturbing to me.
