Barbie and Sports Illustrated are partnering on a campaign called “Unapologetic.” Next week, Barbie will appear in Sports Illustrated's 50th anniversary swimsuit issue alongside Christie Brinkley, Kathy Ireland, Heidi Klum, and Kate Upton. Mattel will also offer a limited edition Sports Illustrated Barbie doll to be sold exclusively on Target.com. Both brands have often received criticism for promoting unrealistic images of women’s bodies, but Mattel says this campaign “is about underscoring who you are, being unapologetic about who you are and celebrating that alongside all these great women and legends who are more than just pretty faces.”
David Schwimmer, whom you only probably know as Ross from Friends, bought a townhouse on 6th street in NYC’s East Village. The building was built in 1852 and eligible for landmark status by the end of 2012, David Schwimmer bought it in 2010 and immediately tore it down.
