MIss Barbie Doll

Who said that to be beautiful u need to be bubble headed? 





In 1959 only about  350,000 Barbie dolls were first produced, she was made of heavy vinyl plastic with two types of hair blonde and brunette with a Marilyn style bathing suit. That same year Mattel hired Charlotte Johnson as the first fashion designer for the doll, paying attention to runways from the fashion capital in Paris to create high fashion style for the doll.  

"Barbie  taught that women can be much more in life than arm candy. In fact, that was Ken’s job. 
Singe and self-sufficient, Barbie was ahead of her curves when it came to the women’s movement. Early on, she had jobs like fashion model and flight attendant. By 1965, she was an astronaut, nearly 20 years before Sally Ride became the first American woman in space. And nurse Barbie because surgeon Barbie in 1973, when just 10 percent of doctors were women. Now, a third of them are."

In Spring of 2009 Mattel presented a collective of designers celebrated the 50 years of the dream like botox friendly always perfect doll, who never gets old;  with a fun fashion runway inspired in our favorite Miss Barbie Doll. The show was separated into three sections; Decade, Faux Reality and Future, this spectacular event. 
How we can't forget the dream green dress by Betsie Johnson and the perfect duo from Kenneth Cole. We also saw the interpretation  from 51 designers including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Marchesa, Patricia Field, and Diane Von Furstenberg, what a dream come true!!!! the only question is are they going got sell this, cause for sure the waiting list is going strong.

so go play with the Little girl in your outfits and never forget your sense of style....
