Doll For Thought

This huge Barbie doll, which represents what Barbie's body proportions would be if she were life-sized, was made by anorexia survivor Galia Slayen. The doll stands 6 feet tall with a 39-inch bust, 18-inch waist and 33-inch hips. The Barbie wears a size 00 skirt that Slayen used to wear when she was suffering from her eating disorder. This year, Galia displayed Barbie at her school, Hamilton College, during its first National Eating Disorders Awareness Week. (Courtesy Galia Slayden)
