This was followed by a Malibu Barbie-inspired crop with big teased hair and sweet pink makeup, and the finale featured edgier looks with clear plastic toppers that gave the audience a peek into Barbie's bright future. It was intriguing to view the various interpretations of the iconic barbie doll, all with the aim of honouring the 50-year-old doll, this time in a life-size version.
The show was not short of poofy dresses like Marchesa's fairytale-like creation and Monique L'huillier's girlish floral gown.
Therefore, what stood out for me were more cutting-edge designs that added vibe to the classic feminine and girly barbie image, such as this beauty pageant Reem Acra strapless red gown, and Catherine Malandrino's stars and stripes.
While Barbie went on a vacation at DVF, designers like Koi Suwannagate and Threeasfour chose to send cocktail dresses embellished with pop-up petals that are pretty in pink down the runway!
I must say this is an eye-opening show..the combination of teased hair and barbie makeup and pink bejewel-rimmed sunglasses sure transformed many of my favourite models into life-sized barbies! And it's really interesting to see how different designers interpret this iconic barbie doll...long live Barbie!
