Obamas and Uglydoll

In January of 2009, Sasha Obama, clipped a small blue Uglydoll to her school backpack and triggered a mediastorm of hype. Pictures of the President’s daughter and her Uglydoll appeared on CNN and The Today Show, and there were stories with titles like: “How Sasha Obama Triggered a Hot Washington Fad”.

Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and an Uglydoll

It’s now April of 2012, and the paparazzi just captured Kim Kardashian and Kanye West purchasing an Uglydoll at NY’s F.A.O. Schwarz. Here’s what’s interesting about this: According to the official Uglydoll mantra:

The Uglydoll universe [is] where “ugly” means unique and different, and celebrating who you are inside and out is the new beautiful.

Hmmm…message to Kim K: It takes more than getting a colonic with your sister on reality TV (this really happened) to be beautiful on the inside. Hopefully the Uglydoll inspires Kim and Kanye and doesn’t end up in her curbside trash…
