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.
