Attention celebrities: If you're going to get a nose job and you have a doll of yourself coming out, try to get the surgery before the doll gets mocked up. Don't make the mistake High School Musical star Ashley Tisdale did and get the old version of you designed. Tisdale's doll debuted at the TIA Toy Fair in New York last week, and MSNBC astutely notes:
The doll hardly looks like the new Ashley; it resembles the “High School Musical” star before her nose job last November, according to some who’ve seen then doll.
“The width of the doll’s nose and the nostrils look like her nose pre-surgery,” cosmetic surgeon Dr. Patrick Abergel, who doesn’t treat the star, told In Touch Weekly.
Because celebrities' doll protégées always look exactly like the celebrity. For example, let's take a look at one of our favorite celebrities-cum-Barbies, Kimora Lee Simmons.
We know we're talking faces here, but we can't help but mention no one complains that the dolls' bodies never match that of the celebs. Anyhoo, to Kimmy Doll's credit, those eyebrows are pretty spot on. But everything else? Sigh. Why must we do this to little girls?
