Of all the Fashion Week 2009 (FW2009) shows, the Barbie show was the most talked about. Barbie’s looks represented the past, present, and future looks of Barbie. Fashion’s heavy hitters, Calvin Klein, Baby Phat, Diane von Furstenberg, Betsey Johnson and Vera Wang, created outfits inspired by the doll.
At the show, grown-up fashionistas and lil‘ fashionistas, alike, were enthralled with Barbie’s offering. Even Kimora Lee Simmons’ daughters, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee participated in the final walk with donning sparkly ‘Barbie’ tees and poofy crayola colored tutus.
Here’s some of my favorite looks from the Barbie Show:
Diane von Furstenberg Barbie (Classic DVF wrap dress)
Baby Phat Barbie
Betsey Johnson Barbie
Kenneth Cole Barbie and Ken (ha-ha, get it)
Vera Wang Barbie
