PHOTOS: The Changing Face of Barbie

Although Barbie's disproportionate figure has hardly changed since she landed on shelves in 1959, it's a different story when it comes to her face.

Released by Mattel, the original Barbie was pale, had heavy eye lids and a curly cropped fringe.

Fast forward to the 2000s and she's undergone a complete makeover to become the glossy-haired icon we see today!

But In the decades between, her appearance has been continuously tweaked to reflect the beauty ideals of the day.
