Karl <3 Barbie!
Yet another sign that my cousin and I were lightyears ahead of everyone, we actually did a wedding photoshoot with our Barbie dolls when we were 8 years old! I don’t have the photos, but I am going to see if I can find them and upload them.
Well, in light of Barbie’s 50th anniversary, there was a Barbie Fashion Show at Bryant Park for Fashion Week. Since then there has been a lot more designers paying homage to the iconic doll. Karl Lagerfeld put together an exhibition of “Barbie and Ken” with model Baptiste Giabiconi as Ken. In the gallery you’ll see Barbie, “in swimsuit, cocktail dress or a pair of jeans.”
The exhibition is in Paris from March 9-15.
