#2

She still looks like she’s eight feet tall.


#3

Misty Copeland or Lil’ Kim?


#4

I think its only like 12 or 14 inches.


#5

Surely large quads are more distinctive of a ballet physique?


#6

I always thought severely damaged and misshapen toes were the distinctive ballet physique.


#7

And blown out knees.


#8

And more breasts than any ballerina can afford to have…


#9

Looks like she needs a Sammwich.

Barbie’s no more resemble human beings that Cabbage Patch dolls do.


#10

I thought Misty Copeland is African American?

That’s actually pretty accurate and part of Misty Copeland’s story. She started “too old” and “with the wrong body,” including a large chest, and of course not white, so everybody told her she wouldn’t make it.

She is. “Copeland’s father, Doug Copeland, is German American and African American,[9] while her mother, Sylvia DelaCerna, is Italian American and African American and was adopted by African American parents”

Sooo - 1/2 black by blood? But lots of fun genetic mixing going on. Per the Barbie site - "As the first African American female Principal Dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theatre, Misty Copeland is an inspirational star, paving the way for future dancers all over the world! "

Interestingly, how light or dark she looks in a google image search varies widely. :o/ Guess it depends on the light and exposure.

Fun fact - born a local girl born in Kansas City! Her mom was a Chiefs Cheerleader. Had no idea!
