Going Through Stages: Barbie's Face From 1959 To 2015

November 13, 2015

These are a bunch of pictures of Barbie's face as compiled by Tumblr user tenaflyviper to show the doll's evolution over the past 56 years. She definitely went through some stages. What's your favorite year? I like 1962 and 1963 (that hair), 1966, 1971 (she looks like Marsha Brady), 1979 (she looks like she started doing drugs), 1983 (she looks like Frankenstein), 1988 (it looks like she's wearing toothbrushes for earrings), 1992 (TROLL DOLL EARRINGS), 1998 - 2002 (so elegant) and 2011 (glitter). In 2015 she looks like a Disney animation princess. The best year of all time though is 1980 because it looks like she has killed, and will definitely kill again.

Thanks to Anna, who's always wanted a 1966 Barbie because she's convinced the hair was made with real gold.

    bitch looked shady as fuck until '67

    1977 Barbie seems to be channelling Farah Fawcett ( which would be no surprise given the date ). In fact. Quite a few of them seem to be channelling famous types of their particular era. Now that's the real quiz. Name the person / persons that inspired a particular year.

    in '61 she was getting smacked around by ken so she's got a permanent nose bleed and a pissed off demeanour.

    1980's looks a bit psycho. 1976 seems to have the least amount of makeup. Original Barbie and through to 1970 all have resting bitch face really badly.

    98 Barbie is best Barbie

    Seems the final design changes happened in 76. The rest are just tweaks.

    Why does 1963 Barbie have blue cheeks?
    So many of them have very questionable make-up lol, kind of jealous of 1992 Barbie's troll earrings though!

  • Melia Martinez

    the blue/green is a stain from the earring posts.

  • Carissa Lynn van Raak

    Ohh I had no idea that they used metal earring posts on the older Barbies, so used to the flimsy little plastic ones.

    I would date the modern day Barbie, But my heart would always be with the 1971 Marsha Barbie.

    You don't realize what an old fashioned name Barbie is, but imagine a young attractive girl called Pearl or Gladys. Still, old fashioned names would be much better than the shitty trendy names you see people naming their kids now.

  • Chaz Gomez

    Sweet Yeezus... Does this woman ever stop having plastic surgery? She's had so much Botox, her face is permanently frozen like that... No wonder Ken left her... Shameless strumpet...

  • Skyinferno

    All of them from '59 - '66 look like "Smug Bitch Barbie"

  • Rebekah Hale

    AM I the only one who noticed the crack induced nose bleed on 1961 Barbie? And 2015 Barbie's eyebrows are certainly not "on fleek".

  • Brent Turcotte

    2011 gold digger barbie

  • Alec Grossman

    2006 has those slutty eyes!

  • ARGH! CGA Eyes! Can't unsee! '80 guys will understand...

  • Barbie is such a whore.

  • Daisy Church

    omg 1980, best year agreed!

  • Torse

    what happened in 1979 jesus christ

  • Bling Nye

    Cocaine.

  • DrZanz

    After the cocaine in '79 she can't handle life and in '80 she murders 5 people in a wallmart because they said she 'looks a lot better.'
