There is a specific type of imaginative, fashion-conscious, and slightly obsessive child who hoards Barbie dolls. Designer Jason Wu was one of those children, "Page Six" reports he told Interview magazine: "I would buy Barbies and take them apart and then remake their looks. I used them for hairstyling. It was a whole process. I had a lot of dolls — like 150."

His favorite living Barbie doll was RuPaul, who was "so tall and glittery and impressive, with the big hair ... You know, a fashion-obsessed boy would be into that."
