f you think Barbie hasn’t evolved much over the years, wait until you see the below. Compiled by the Tumblr user ‘tenaflyviper’, you can see every year of Barbie’s face from 1959 to present day.
The hairstyles change with the times (check out 1967 Barbie’s short bob, 1977’s Farrah Fawcett-inspired do and 1988’s layered style) as well as the levels of blue eyeshadow and blusher. We love the changing accessories, too: 2011 Barbie’s blingy earrings are certainly a sign of the times.
Barbie’s face shape also seems to change over the years, too – her eyes definitely seem bigger now, and her face seems distinctly wider. She’s now more smiley and less pouty, too (1959’s Barbie kinda scares us). Here are the rest of the Barbies through the decades.
