    Homegirl has been turning heads and swapping jobs since 1959. Can you believe?!

    And to mark the milestone, Lumen, an over 50s dating app, has brought the iconic character to life in a photoshoot designed to show her real age.

    The photos, which feature no airbrushing and only natural lighting, were done to illustrate the beauty of growing older and reaching 60.

    If you don't mind me saying, Barbie as a 60-year-old looks just as, if not more, beautiful than when she first entered the world.

    And of course Ken, Barbie's boyfriend, makes an appearance as a handsome, silver fox.

    The photo series is part of a campaign by Lumen to push back against ageism in the toy industry, and to celebrate the beauty of growing older.

    In a press release, co-founder and CMO of Lumen, Charly Lester, said "Many women say that in their fifties and sixties they’ve never felt more empowered in their own skin – and this should be reflected by influential icons like Barbie."

    "We encourage the toy industry to consider making their products more pro age – who says that everyone should be in their 20s to be a success?"

    No matter Barbie's age, I think we can all agree that she looks amazing.
