Today, Barbie is 50 (and looking much better than my middle age makeup)…

To celebrate, check out the video of the 2009 Barbie Fashion Runway Show (what the no hot pink – blogger, step it up). Fifty designers created past, present, and future looks of Barbie. You can also look at the photos. Or check out the makeup from the show.

Some favorites:

#1 favorite by far is this ensemble from Rag & Bone


What was up with Betsey Johnson’s Barbie contribution so closely resembling her dress from her Spring 09 Ready to Wear collection?



Doesn’t this look from Kai Kuhne look so perfectly Barbie?kai-kuhne-barbie

I’m going to attempt to make a Barbie cake in celebration…

Then find someone to make me this swimsuit.
