From Barbie's skyrocketing career to her enviable slim figure, the blue-eyed bombshell seems to have it all.

The images paint an abysmal picture of Barbie's husband, Ken, who grapples with his sexuality while trapped in a loveless marriage.
Goldstein and her crew shot the photo series over a long weekend last December. While she relied on volunteers to help refinish the furniture, Ken and Barbie models posed in a four room set she built in an art gallery.
As for her inspiration? The photographer first came up with the idea after her seven-year-old daughter began playing with the dolls.
Other photographers examining Barbie's darker side include Sarah Hanney and Mariel Clayton.
