Barbie Celebrates 50th At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

Roger & Maruricio Padilha talks zebra-striped jumpsuit by Patricia Field inspired by Barbie's 1st bathing suit.

An unbelievable list of over 50 designers including Anna Sui, Derek Lam, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang and Diane von Furstenberg will present life-size pieces using Barbie as the muse on February 14th during New York Fashion Week. I am excited to see what a designer such as Donna Karen, who understands a woman's curves, will present.

A confirmed fact is that Barbie herself takes 3 hours to brush on layers of makeup paint (she has over 300 shades of brown in her makeup kit!). I hope her show will be on time and that she won't keep her guests waiting for too long!

I'm impressed that it takes that much time to put makeup on the
face of a doll. I love makeup,
but even I don't think I'd have
the patience of three hours.

Still love Barbie, though!
