Barbie: Femme Fatale


On the heels of her big New York Fashion Week runway show, blonde bombshell Barbie continues her birthday world tour in Paris. Super chic boutique, Colette, is currently honoring Barbie (and her famous boyfriend) in its windows, celebrating her 50 fashionable years as well as her influence on little girls the world over.  The iconic doll is posed amongst a slew of Barbie-related products, created in honor the milestone birthday, including a line of limited edition clothing by Jeremy Scott and a pair of barbie-adorned heels by Bruno Frisoni.  Inside the store, a section was set aside just for Barbie paraphernelia along with a photography exhibition by Karl Lagerfeld featuring a lifestyle version of the doll with male model Baptiste Giabiconi.
