Barbie Doll is a Cover Girl!

Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue is an annual tradition. Men can’t wait for it to arrive in their mailbox or on news stands… and everyone is eager to hear who the famous cover girl will be.


Well, for the first time in Sports Illustrated’s history, the cover girl isn’t a girl at all. It’s a doll! That’s right, the world famous Barbie Doll graces the cover of SI’s swimsuit issue this year. It’s Barbie’s 50th birthday and the popular sports magazine wanted to honor her.


Dr. Michael Gray of the Michigan Cosmetic Surgery Center and Skin Deep Spa in West Bloomfield, Michigan took one look at the cover of the swimsuit issue and started to laugh. “People always say that these pretty swimsuit models had plastic surgery, well this year no one can deny that the cover girl is all plastic!”


Dr. Gray thought it would be funny to create a “Before and After” cosmetic surgery Barbie Doll.
