Sports Illustrated Barbie

by Dutch Fashion Doll World

This year the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue turns 50. And they are celebrating it with Barbie. Barbie will be the star of an editorial inside the magazine shot by Walter Looss Jr. In one of the shots the readers will see the original 1959 Barbie in her black and white striped one piece swimsuit.

Here you can see a behind the scenes video.

For this shoot they also created a modern version on the classic swimsuit.

I love this modern interpretation and I can’t wait to see the magazine. The swimsuit Sports Illustrated issue will be released on Feb. 18. The night before Barbie and SI will host a Barbie Beach House Party in New York complete with a “pink carpet”.
