Barbie Turns 50!

Wow, I just love hearing about stuff that spawns my childhood memories--Barbie turns 50 this year ladies and gents!! And, in celebration Mattel will be throwing the fashion spectacular of the season this February! The fashion show will have some 50 designers volunteering their time and efforts to create life size Barbie garments! Part of the show will include garments by the likes of Vera Wang and Jeremy Scott as well as bright pink stilettos with every outfit. Who better to design the shoes then shoe master himself, Christian Louboutin! Mattel will also be heading up some incredible collaborations over the next year with Barney's and the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America). Barbie is no longer just a toy brand, but Mattel is gearing up to launch the Barbie fashion brand! I sure can't wait to see!! Keep on reading fashionistas for more fashion inspiration. Make sure to look for your own good find at: and friend us at:!!
