The latest in the adventures of Trophy Barbie in social media portrays humorous but realistic problems that women have to face in their life, along with gender issues and labels.

Anything from periods to gender equality, this Barbie account is making an impact on social media by spreading a message in a relatable, yet unique way.

Instagram account @trophywifebarbie was created by the incredible conceptual artist Annelies Hofmeyr. Annelies definitely knows how to grow a social media following with her over 200,000 followers and media exposure of her photos. But what she makes sure is the most important aspect of her art is the discussion. While one may think these photos are funny, they also bring up topics like gender roles and just the pressures of being a woman in general.

If you actually look at the photos of 'Trophy Wife Barbie,' you will realize that this Barbie is not exactly looking like a stereotypical 'trophy wife' - which is kind of the joke in all of this. But you might be wondering why the doll has antlers on her head? Annelies described the antlers as "a physical representation of a label imposed on her, likening her to a hunting trophy; something to be owned."

When you look at the classic Barbie, she looks perfect in societal 'beauty standards,' but let's be real - it's just unrealistic and unachievable.

The fact that this Barbie shows the typical struggles of being a woman and not having your life together is pretty cool!

Since the growth of 'Trophy Wife Barbie' online, Annelies is moving the discussion offline with her collection of prints and T-shirts you can purchase.

I have to say, the Monday photo is probably the most relatable - in my eyes at least!

Now, let's take a look at some of some of Trophy Wife Barbie's relatable life:

I think this theme for a 'Barbie Instagram account' is extremely creative and it's just something different and refreshing to look at. I really like how Annelies used the antlers as a symbolic message, rather than just leaving the doll with her usual hairstyle. The antlers stand out and definitely made me do a double take!
