Happy Birthday Barbie!

Like so many girls (and some boys), I had a childhood obsession with Barbie and frequently enjoyed Barbie marathons. I, too was sucked in by her glamour, style and apparent ability to do everything from being an astronaut to a politician to a beauty queen. Well, at 50 Barbie’s looking better than ever (no doubt with the help of a little ‘plastic’ surgery). To celebrate her 50th, Colette in Paris has a special exhibition ‘Barbie and Ken by Karl Lagerfeld featuring Barbie looking fabulous in everything from a ball gown to jeans and model Baptiste Giabiconi as Ken. The exhibit also features the very first Barbie and Ken dolls.
