Fashion Icon: Barbie

Filed under: Fashion Icons — Tags: , , , — xfrenchx @ 2:05 am

It may seem silly, but the 11.5 inch doll, Barbie has one of the biggest wardrobes and always has the best outfits. Over 70 high end designers have outfitted her, and she has a never-ending list of other luxuries, such as sports cars, houses, boats and even MAC cosmetics! Barbie began her career as a fashion icon in 1959, and has worn some of the best designer labels, including Dior, Oscar de la Renta, Bill Blass, along with wedding designs by Vera Wang and Carolina Herrera. The Mattel Company has collaborated with 50 top designers to celebrate Barbie’s 50th birthday anniversary, and they will be showing life size versions of the doll’s outfits in February at New York Fashion Week; and all the models will be wearing replica’s of the Louboutin pumps that he designed for the doll.

“I guess I always had a little ‘girlie side’ who liked Barbie,” Louboutin said. “Barbie needs to wear great shoes because every girl needs to wear great shoes.”

Lucky Barbie, she gets these clothes at no cost; but hey look on the bright side, now we can all afford some Louboutins! 😉

Here are the designer’s who have designed for Barbie, with a corresponding photo for those that I was able to find. I hope to collect the new barbie outfits that will show in February for your viewing.

  1. I have to say, I never really cared for Barbie when I was younger (I was more for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles haha), but I really think she is in no danger whatsoever of being ousted by those tacky Bratz dolls (ugh!). Barbie always just seemed like the quintessential woman to me, what with her many careers (she was a doctor as well as a princess!) and a closet designed by the likes of Dior, Vera Wang, Burberry, and DVF.

  3. That’s so funny, I was really into Barbie A LOT but I was a HUGE fan of the Ninja Turtles lol! My sister’s used to hate it when I would make them watch it! I heard that Bratz don’t seel anymore, there was a legal battle between them and Mattel, saying that the Bratz dolls were created by the Mattel company and the guy worked there, left the company and came out with Bratz, stealing the idea … Mattel must have had the evidence because they won the battle, and I thought Bratz weren’t selling anymore but I could br wrong; maybe I just assumed due to the legal issues. I hated Bratz – people used to say Barbie was skanky and bad for young girls, but I think she is very modest when you look at those tiny Bratz outfits! I agree about Barbie, it was like you could be anyone with her, since she had soo many careers and styles; any young girl could find the one Barbe they want to be with all those choices.

  4. lol I know, when I found out about this, I was like “YAY I can buy designer clothing now!” hahah …. I’ve always wanted to start a Barbie collection myself, so I decided I’m going to start with collecting only designer Barbies. I can’t wait to get started on that!

  5. I think I might join you on the designer Barbie collection. Who knew dolls could still be fun when you are in your 20s haha!

    P.S. I haven’t seen those tacky Bratz dolls for a while now, so I think that’s a really good sign they’re gone for good 😀 because there’s no way I would let a daughter of mine play with those things ever XP

  6. lol if u compare bratz to barbie, barbie would win hands down. idk but i feel that they designed those bratz dolls with such scary features, full lips, big eyes… a little too scary for me. barbie looks way way wayyy more elegant in terms of looks. i wonder if we could find anyone with good tailoring skills to copy these designer outfits or if we could find any dress/outfit from any designer we liked and ask them to tailor a replica of it 🙂
