Spotted in the display window of a London clothing boutique, this Barbie Doll wearing a bespoke Pink outfit and seeking shelter under a Pink Japanese Umbrella, looks to me like she was rode hard and put away wet, as the saying goes. You can see she’s got her hairbrush in hand, so obviously she’s trying to do some damage control, but wtf is up with those smudges of dirt / bruises (!) on her face? What is the message being sent here? Is no one advocating for our favorite girl? So. Many. Questions.

It only gets worse when you pan-out to reveal that Barbie has a companion who appears to have left her clothes somewhere. The horror.
