Whatever your feelings are about Barbie, you can’t deny that people definitely have a fascination with the doll. Every time a celeb dresses like the classic childhood toy, it makes headlines. Former America’s Next Top Model contestant Nyadak Duckie Thot, better known as Duckie Thot, is getting a lot of attention right now not for dressing like a Barbie, but for actually looking like one.
Recently, the Sudanese Australian model posted a photo to Instagram, captioning it coyly: “Ducks after dark.” And whether it’s the lighting, her flawless posing, or the power of matte makeup, she definitely looks like a life-sized Barbie doll. Twitter is stunned, and can you blame them?
Thot has since updated her followers with a few cheeky comments:
Her fans seem to be in agreement, saying they would nominate her to have a Barbie made in her image. It would definitely be great for children to have even more diverse Barbies, as one Twitter user commented, saying, “Isn’t it inspiring, little Sudanese girls playing with a beautiful Sudanese barbie doll.”
Hey, Mattel, you listening?
