i love love love barbies. i used to own a ton but my mom gave it away when i was around 12 years old. made me sad as barbie was a huge part of my childhood. my favorites were angel face barbie and peaches n cream. and twirly curls. and malibu. come to think of it, i loved them all. i still look lovingly at the barbie displays at the toystore and despise all bratz dolls. bratz dolls are just trampy. pfft.
anyway, for barbie’s 50th birthday, there are a number of celebrations to mark such a landmark year for a cultural icon. kicking off with a runway show during new york fashion week plus a number of designer collabs. and to kick off paris fashion week, karl lagerfeld and colette(only one of the most amazing stores on earth!) launched an homage to barbie and ken as designed by kaiser karl.
from fashionista –
Ken will be played by model Baptiste Giabiconi, and Barbie wears everything from a poufy wedding gown to a cocktail dress to a Chanel suit
would love to get my hands on a chanel suit barbie!
