Are the Jennifer Lopez Barbie dolls curvy enough?

Jennifer Lopez has been immortalized in the best way possible: as a Barbie doll. In fact, two dolls in the likeness of the “American Idol” judge, 44, were released last week: a World Tour model and a Red Carpet version.

The World Tour doll shows Lopez in a mini-version of the Zuhair Murad costume she wore onstage, complete with silver ankle boots. The Red Carpet doll is a bit sleeker, and features Lopez in another Murad ensemble, with teardrop earrings and a chic bun.

However, some argue that the dolls do not accurately reflect Lopez’s curves. According to Yahoo, if Barbie was a real woman, her measurements would be 36-18-33. According to Barbie director of design Robert Best, that has changed.

“We created a specialty sculpt that has more enhanced curves,” he told the website, adding that Lopez collaborated on the doll’s design. “She is pleased with the collaboration and a fan of the dolls.”

    They are curvy enough but only a very sick and twisted mind would be looking at a barbie doll of Jennifer Lopez like that.

    If the woman likes the doll that was made off her, then sure. Why not?

    She is curves galore and the Barbie dolls are just little tiny bumps not saying I'm obsessed with boobs but I still think they should be bigger

    Need to make the dolls a little over weight to show the curves. All kids do not grow into stick figures.

    But if they made them as curvy as J/Lo it would be considered "child's pornography"

    But then... Who gives a damn? None of the other characters or people that Barbie has "portrayed" have been physically accurate, why start now?

    Jennifer Lopez is one of the most beautiful women in the world.. If you can't portray her everything, don't try at all.

    Well, You really cant tell, you need a 3D image or at least a snapshot from the front and side. This image of the doll looks like and intended slimming effect.

    ...and there really ought to be a "who gives a sh*t?" option for questions like this.

    But if they had made them true to form the price point would have to skyrocket.
    Jenny from the block much more Bratz doll type than Barbie. Bratz dolls

    J-Lo is not fat, but the whole point of a Barbie is that's it's skinny. Little girls don't want to play with a fat doll.

    And that's why little girls grow up to have body image issues.
