The beautiful blonde-haired doll that we all dressed up and played with as children is making huge leaps into the fashion world. A little over a week ago, Lord & Taylor, Wildfox and Forever 21 announced that they were releasing Barbie clothes for adults #DreamComeTrue. Now, the 12 inch doll is taking it to the streets as a street style model.
Barbie (aka. her creator, Mattel) got with the times, purchased a smartphone and made an Instagram account, @barbiestyle, where she has been uploading street style pics and styled photos just like our favorite bloggers. She has been pictured wearing Coach bags and Ray-Ban sunglassess and even reading Elle. Never thought I would say this, but I’m a little jealous of her. A rockin’ bod, a dream house, a pink corvette and now a style blog…what a life!
Right now Barbie is “Thrilled to be heading to New York, London, Milan and Paris this September for all four fashion weeks!” And we can’t wait to follow her adventures. After all, “life in plastic is fantastic.”
