Sylvie van der Vaart: Now With More Plastic

It was only a matter of time before the living Barbie became a real Barbie, wasn’t it?
Proud husband Rafael tweeted some pics of the Sylvie Barbie that was unveiled at a toy fair in Germany today. Toy makers Matel even worked with Sylvie’s stylist Danie Bles to make sure every detail of the Jan Taminiau dress she wore on Let’s Dance last year was accurate.
Sylvie is working as an ambassador for a European design competition with Barbie. This makes us think of what other WAGs would make good Barbies. We’ve affectionately dubbed Claudine Keane “Hot Mess Barbie,” but there must be more. Alex Gerrard as “Trend Monger Barbie” perhaps? Yolanthe Cabau as “Hair Envy Barbie?”
