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?”

    every time i see her the more fake she looks…a far cry from true natural beauty!
    she shud join the cast of the only way is essex…pantomime make up, fake tan, fake hair, botox and fake persona.
    anyone who thinks shes 'pretty' hasnt got a clue about true beauty…
    think back to sofia loren, monroe and elizabeth taylor..
    cant compare

    As plastic as one can be without actually having plastic surgeries… well, I don't even know if she's actually had any plastic surgeries. She's dangerously close to pink bimbo type of chick kinda like Paris Hilton. But with an added touch of chav/guido a la Jersey Shore.

    Sara Cabonera – Sports Presenter Barbie
    Shakira – Cougar Barbie (I know I know, Shakira probably already has a barbie)
    Carlota Arbeloa – could there be two "Goddess" barbie's?
