Barbie Turns 50

The Mattel Barbie fashion show took place at New York Fashion Week and what an amazing show! There were looks created by 50 designers with some of the top models dressed up to look like Barbie. The models even looked plastic! There were three themes for Barbie on the runway: Retro dolls from the 50's and 60's, Malibu Barbie with big hair and tanned skin, and future Barbie. Here are some of the highlights.

Rachel Roy took inspiration from the first Barbie created in 1959.

Monique Lhuiller loved dressing Barbie in white lace.
