Barbie

37.”I actually wanted to be a fashion designer. I did a lot with the sewing machine at home for Barbie or for carnival or just for fun. Then I saw this ad in the newspaper. And as young girls sometimes do some stupid things, I filled in the coupon and sent in my photos.” – Heidi Klum

43.”Drag queens always base their personas on their favorite female icons. Mine was Barbie, who’s not necessarily a human but is as iconic and beautiful as any woman.
