    I think it’s safe to say that pretty much every woman (and potentially some men) had at least one Barbie during their lifetime right? And if you didn’t, you definitely, definitely knew who she was. You maybe even had some kind of “knock-off” version… I know I did!

    Anyway, what I’m trying to say is, you’re aware of who Barbie is, correct? But are you aware of the fact that she just turned 60 years old this past Saturday? Because she did! I know I know… still looks great for her age, right?

    60 is a big-deal age to turn for anybody, and most people do something big in order to celebrate reaching such a milestone. Well, Lumen took it into their own hands to help Barbie celebrate, and they did something absolutely magical for her!

    Lumen, who you may or may not know is a popular over 50s dating app, has actually brought the incredibly iconic character to LIFE in a photoshoot which was designed to show Barbie’s “real age”… which I’m sure she just loved.

     

    The photos, which feature absolutely 100% no airbrushing whatsoever, only natural lighting were created in order to show the true beauty of growing older and reaching the glorious age of 60!

     

     

    And I think it’s certainly safe to say that their mission was completely and utterly successful, don’t you!? I mean, just look how freakin’ gorgeous this woman is! It’s almost like looking in a mirror…

     

    And I’m sure none of you will mind me saying, seeing as I’m sure most of you will agree with me, but to me, Barbie as a 60-year-old, looks just as, if perhaps not even more so, beautiful than when we first graced our shelves 60 years ago. What do you say!?
