It’s true. Barbie taught me that a woman could be absolutely anything she wanted to be. Miss America, a corporate career woman, a jet setting diva, a doctor, an entrepreneur, there were no limits to what Barbie could do. And because my grandparents, for whatever reason, never bought me a Ken doll, only further let me know that Barbie could do things for herself, by herself! Let me explainFrom mansions in sexy places in sexy places like Malibu, California to corvettes in her signature pretty pinks, Barbie was truly every woman. Talking bears and peeing dolls I could do without. It was Barbie and a piece of her fabulous world that I wanted for every birthday and Christmas. So, it may come as no surprise that I was a little beyond excited when I learned that for Barbie’s 50th anniversary, she would have her own runway show for Fashion Week, Fall 2009. This was not only a nostalgic moment for me but a historic one too! More than 50 designers including Diane von Furstenberg, Rachel Roy, Kimora Lee Simmons and many more paid tribute to the style icon with creations that celebrate her through the ages. Take a look at some of the designs. Love those punch pink Christian Louboutin’s made especially for the show!
