I’m just happy as Barbie,” says Evans. “The narrative is not: I’m on the search for Ken. I’m hoping Ken’s going to find me.” My Ken confidence inflates when fairground operations director James, who is also standing at the local elections, wrongly assumes I’m a professional Ken. I reveal I’m a lowly journalist with a death wish for looking ridiculous. There is no faking my nerves as inline skating Ken clings on to Barbie for dear life. The 16-year-old skateboarding me dies with shame. I wonder if topless mermaid Ken is a step too far, but go with it anyway. Perhaps Evans can describe what on earth is going on in the trailer, because, frankly, I haven’t got a Kenneth.

Ken needs to make Barbie laugh? She will do when she sees my outifts’ … Pelley channels his inner doll. Photograph: Sarah Lee/The GuardianThe Barbie movie will drive strong female leads and Barbiecore fashion. But will the world’s biggest Kencore summer and Ken’s nice guy Ken-ergy also lead to a summertime of plastic celibacy? Surely there is something we can do to help the poor guy out? 8am: Ken therapy To bench-test my Ken-ability, I am going to need a Barbie. So I have arranged a date with a real-life Barbie lookalike. But my nerves are getting the better of me. Evans seems delighted at our photoshoot – even if it is just me. “I’ve always wanted to shoot with a Ken. Now I’ve found one.” As we jump into the car, my Ken confidence reaches a new high.

She said she had been overwhelmed by the support she has received since Geronimo’s awful comments, adding that it “means a lot.” During a performance, a stunt is what usually makes the crowd go wild. Thus, your main task is to pull off impressive formations. Turns out, it’s fabulous being Ken. But it’s even more fabulous being Barbie. It’s just … the hair! The … tight leather! The … pink! We’ll always love Ken. But Barbie is the star of the show. Everyone should embrace and cherish their inner Barbie and Ken, whichever you feel closest to. Ken might be Barbie’s boyfriend, but he will never be Barbie’s life partner,” says Evans. “They have to keep it like that for the kids’ market. They can’t pin down what Ken and Barbie might actually do together, because kids don’t think like that. Mattel is very clever. It knows its market.” The film nods to Barbie and Ken’s asexual relationship. “I might stay over tonight,” says Ken. “Why?” says Barbie. “Because we’re girlfriend and boyfriend.” “To do what?” “I’m actually not sure.” Geaux Tigers®! Wearing LSU’s signature white uniform with purple and gold accent colors and matching pom-poms, the Louisiana State University Barbie® cheerleader captures the pride and spirit of the Tigers. Victory for L-S-U!Promoting respect, empathy and equal treatment for all individuals, regardless of gender, is crucial for building respect in any workplace.” There has been a lot of controversy around Barbie’s body and appearance, as if she’s a real person, but very few dolls have realistic body proportions when you think about it. It’s quite remarkable,” muses Monier. “She is just a toy, after all.” I doubt Ken will be the main protagonist,” Verderame tells me. “Ken as the saviour would go against everything Barbie has stood for in postwar American culture. Barbie came out of the tween years, following the second world war. For the first time, tweens were just hanging out. We’re about to celebrate the 50-year anniversary of the women’s movement. Barbie represents that as well.” Ken has always been an accessory to Barbie’s lifestyle’ … Pelley and Evans. Photograph: Sarah Lee/The Guardian

McBride continued: “In my 17 years as a professional journalist, I have never been disrespected in such a blatant manner while trying to do my job. Their words were sexist and misogynistic. No woman should experience this in the workplace, and I appreciate the Commanders swift response in handling this matter.” Remember all the high school movies where cheerleading was a thing? If you didn’t participate in such activities, now it’s your chance! Try the Pom-Pom Squad game, so Barbie can teach you what it takes to be a winner. Barbie has kindly offered to drive. Disappointingly, she doesn’t own a bright pink Chevrolet, like in the movie. But her gold Nissan Micra is Barbie enough for me. Sadly, Ken’s map-reading skills are more than airhead. We miss our exit and drive the wrong way around the M25 for ages. It doesn’t matter, because we’re too busy chatting, and chalk it down to a “typical Barbie moment”. Hooray! A shared experience, and it’s not even lunchtime. These days, it’s not all thin blond Barbies and muscular, brunette Kens. Barbie and Ken are inclusive of all body shapes, cultures, skin tones and genders. Which is good to know because, looking at me, there is one obvious thing that distracts from the usual Ken. That’s right: I’m not very thin.In a statement to ESPN, she said Geronimo’s words had made her feel “incredibly insulted and embarrassed.” The concept is in line with what Richard Dixon, president and chief operating officer of Barbie’s California-based maker Mattel, described as an ambitious “diversity revolution” for the plastic icon. “It’s a far cry from the Barbies of dated ethnic old,” he declared at a recent conference in Los Angeles. Sarah bellows her instructions. “More vacant. No, too vacant!” “More camp. No, too camp!” Barbie is a natural at posing for the camera. My Ken-poses, less so. The costume changes soon fly. The narrative is not: I’m on the search for Ken. I’m hoping Ken’s going to find me’ … Evans fills Pelley in on what Barbie is looking for. Photograph: Sarah Lee/The Guardian Evans is a big fan of the newfound inclusivity of Barbie and Ken. “Barbie and Ken represent everybody and everything,” she says. So, for the sake of all things Ken-clusive, there is one more thing I should try.

After an afternoon shooting as Barbie and Ken, I’m beginning to match Evans’ excitement for the Barbie movie, and wonder what it will mean for Ken.In a post on social media, Geronimo said: “At this time I will not be providing comment on the events of the last few days. I am consulting with my advisors as to my options moving forward, including an accurate reflection of the situation.” One of the most classic kid’s toys out there has to be a Barbie doll. Most of us probably have fuzzy memories of playing with Barbie dolls as a kid, whether we were elaborately decorating their pink Barbie Dream House, making Barbie and Ken kiss while giggling about it with friends, or collecting as many dolls and accessories as possible. Thanks to the Barbie movie having just come out this summer — this is going to be one of the most popular Halloween costume themes this year. If you want to dress as a character from the Barbie-verse — or your spouse or kids want to — there are so many fun Barbie-themed costumes that the whole family will love. It is great to learn more about Evans. (“Show an interest in her as a person,” my mentor Mooney advises. “Find out about her, the things she likes doing. But don’t make it an interview!”) This I can do, as I am armed with a suitcase full of Ken-clobber, ready to mix and match with whatever my Barbie may be wearing.
