I am most definitely still, and have always been a huge Barbie fan. I was always the girl with 1o0 million dolls, the mansion, the RV, you name it. So now that Barbie is having her 50th anniversary this year and celebrating that with a fashion show at New York Fashion week, I’m even more excited than ever.
If you didn’t see the show this past Saturday, February 14th, you can check out the video here.
For the rest of you, I’ve culled some of my absolute favorite looks from the show. It was a flurry of hot pink, big hair, cute anklets (ankle socks) and hot pink sandals.
\More than American 50 designers fashioned looks for the show that were inspired by Barbie. The Barbie outfits included designs from the likes of Calvin Klein, Nanette Lepore, Marchesa, Michael Kors, Diane von Furstenberg, Betsey Johnson and more.
The show was do delicious, I could hardly contain myself. Here, a few of my favorite Barbie looks.
I’ve always been a fan of vintage-inspired swimwear, so this black-and-white polka dot number is right on the money.
This orange dress and dainty gloves are super classic.
The flapper dress, never ever goes out of style. I love the color on this flapper-inspired number, and though I would never wear or recommend wearing that plastic cover on top (some looks are really meant just for the runway) the rest is super super cute.
I was excited to see a denim number thrown into the mix like this one above. Please sign me up for the huge floppy hat, I’ve been wanting one forever!
I heart this dress. Really heart it. I think it’s my inner girly girl that’s always wanted to parade around in big poofy amazing dresses.
It wouldn’t be a Barbie show without an appearance by Ken! Loving the jeans and little leather jacket, definitely a cute look for marching hand in hand down the runway with Ken.
It’s quite possible that only Barbie could pull off a hot pink jumpsuit like this but she definitely does it well!
I would love love love to own this cream-and-pink number.
As well as this hot pink look above.
Not everything on the runway was a flurry of hot pink, here Barbie channels her inner prep girl a la Blair Waldorf.
Yes, it’s hot pink but this coat is totally amazing.
Love how this dress is styled with blue gloves.
Barbie needs some evening wear and these flowy looks are right on the money for her.
