Barbie Fashion

Blondes Still Have More Fun
To celebrate Barbie's big 5-0, Mattel is staging a full-scale runway show. Fifty designers including Anna Sui, Diane von Furstenberg, and Rachel Roy (left) will create looks based on iconic outfits from the doll's archives, with Christian Louboutin supplying the pink patent pumps. And it doesn't end there. Following her NYFW debut, Barbie heads home to Malibu for the grand opening of her Jonathan Adler-designed Dream House. After some R&R, she jets to Paris, where Karl Lagerfeld will open his exhibit on the doll at Colette, and Gareth Pugh and Jeremy Scott will unveil Barbie-inspired capsule collections, also at the store. Here's to 50 and fabulous! (style.)
