Did Bratz Dolls Just Walk Viktor & Rolf Couture?

Barbie should watch her back

Models made two loops on the runway at Viktor & Rolf—once donning oversized heads (like those worn by cast members at Disney World), and the second time as themselves. We couldn't help but compare the catwalkers to Bratz, a brand of dolls that dominated the tween zeitgeist in 2001. The clique—consisting of Yasmin, Cloe, Jade, and Sasha—was famous for its almond-shaped eyes, full lips, and sexed-up fashion sense that made Barbie look like a nun.

The designers' cast was definitely more diverse than the Bratz pack—encompassing guys and girls with varying skin tones and hair colors—and the imaginative couture coats, dresses, and patchwork denim were undoubtedly leagues above the micro minis, thigh-high socks, fur vests, and platforms that made parents cringe. Here's hoping V&R's Fall 2017 catwalk inspired the next generation of couturiers and instilled the idea that fashion is for everyone, regardless of race, shape, and gender.
