Barbie 50th Anniversary Fashion Show

February 14th, Valentine's Day, was the much-awaited day for the Barbie 50th Anniversary Fashion Show during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. 50 designers created runway looks for Barbie, divided into 3 categories: Retro, Today, and Future Barbie. Some were fantastic and really evoked Barbie, others were downright weird. Every Barbie wore Christian Louboutin shoes, of course :)

My Favorites (Barbie "names" my own):

"Pink Butterfly Barbie"
by Koi Suwannagate

"Polkadot Bikini Barbie"
by Norma Kamali

"Wedding Cake Barbie"
by Monique Lhuillier

"Glitter Butterfly Barbie"

"Cotton Candy Dream Barbie"
by Marchesa

My Least Favorites:

"Amy Winehouse Barbie"?
by Michael Kors

"Lido de Paris Barbie"?
