"Does this suit make my ankles look fat?" Never, Barbie! Photo: Mattel

Silly us. All these years we thought Barbie was the picture of perfection. Turns out, we were wrong.

Christian Louboutin thinks Ken's better half is carrying some extra padding in her ankles.

Louboutin -- the latest fashion designer to give the plastic icon a makeover (others have included Diane von Furstenberg, Anna Sui and Givenchy) -- has revamped three Barbies from "top to toe," reports WWD.

"They're completely wild and even come with mini Louboutin boxes for the shoes," a Louboutin spokeswoman told the paper.

And apparently he's spending a little extra time retooling her plastic cankles (or is it "Bankles?"). "He found her ankles were too fat," the Louboutin spokeswoman told WWD.

We asked fashion stylist and fashion director of NYLON magazine, J. Errico how he'd style our favorite doll to help reduce the appearance of her so-called problem area.

"If Barbie wants to divert attention away from her ankles, she should avoid booties or anything with ankle straps," he says. "However, any girl -- plastic or not -- would be mad not to take advice from Mr. Louboutin."

We wonder if Mattel would agree.
