A Glamorous Return to Childhood

Ok, I never thought I'd say this, but Barbie's 50th Anniversary show in the prestigious Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week kicked ass.
Who would've thought that those plastic blondies that my mum used to buy me in the store under my house would turn into this!? thank god they lost the fake organza dress that they used to wear, however the shoes? Louboutin went a bit too Barbie.

Barbie was born Barbara Millicent Roberts on March 9, 1959 in Willows, Wisonsin. She is one of the top selling dolls in the world. She has travelled and worked more than a 100 jobs, however, she loves beeing a fashion hoe the most, (she told me last night, cinfidentially, of course) Everyone's played with Barbies at one point in their lives and if they haven't they should probably question the kind of childhood they had. And in order to make her 50th party more interesting she agreed with 51 designers, including Vera Wang, Alexander Wang , Marchesa, Calvin Klein, Diane Von Fustenberg, etc to dress her up for a real-size fashion show. 

Only one word: Fierce.
