My one and only Barbie came in a narrow box, circa 1960's. She wore high heels, a black and white striped bathing suit, and a blond bubble cut. The light hair color, thin waist and fair skin was something I would never be able to attain. In Bound to Fashion, a glamorous face peeks between baby fat legs of a headless doll. Some young ladies are bound to media persuasion, desiring a celebrity's body or features. This adds to peer pressure, and may distort their self image.
