We love Mariel Clayton’s Bad Barbie photo series. In fact, we love it so much that we need to show you some more shots in the series. The inspiration behind the dark set-ups? Simple, says Clayton: ‘You can’t get to be Barbie without an ocean’s worth of peroxide, 27 plastic surgeries and a complete lack of intelligence, so it irritates me immensely that this is the toy of choice women give to their daughters to emulate. Behind the vacuous perpetual lipsticked-smile lurks the black heart of the true sociopath, just like in real life’.
