The wait is over!

We now have a sneak peek of what Barbie will wear on February 14 at Bryant Park. 

I’m loving the Robert Best, Rachel Roy and Twinkle sketches. And I can’t help but mention that Barbie will also wear a pair of hot pink Christian Louboutin pumps. Fierce!

The Associated Press reports:


NEW YORK – You’ve got to be at the top of your game to be a one-name model: There’s Iman, Naomi, Gisele — Barbie.

The 11.5-inch plastic doll is still on top as a high-fashion muse as she approaches her 50th birthday, and will make her New York Fashion Week catwalk debut on Saturday in 50 outfits by the country’s top designers.

Barbie’s life-size stand-ins will strut in a red carpet-worthy gown by Marchesa, a hot-pink wrap dress by Diane von Furstenberg and an outrageous green party dress by Betsey Johnson.

The fact that Barbie is just shy of her 50th birthday — officially marked on March 9 — doesn’t seem to matter in a fashion industry that worships youth. (Being made of plastic, she can even avoid the indignities of Botox.)
