HK Celebs and Their “Barbie” Representations

Surpassing $800 million at the worldwide box office since its July 20 premiere, the latest trend in the global Barbie craze inspired by the Mattel hit is an AI-generated filter which allows customized selection of hair color, skin color and even race, to create a Barbie Doll version based on one’s image.

Celebrities including many from Emperor Entertainment Group (EEG) artistes had the viral filter applied to unexpected results – perhaps due to their strong features, some artistes ended up with the real McCoy looking more attractive than their Barbie/Ken versions, while some male artistes appeared to have morphed entirely into other celebrities. Take a look below
