FASHION SHOWs celebrating AMERICAN DESIGNERS

a doll of a fashion icon, all about barbie By Brigitte segura

scene… (a hectic scene)… the fullest lobby I’ve ever seen at the tents…rumors flying around (hoping others would leave) that the fire department is on their way… a cross between fans at a Madonna concert and a scene at a 80’s department store basement sale trying to get to the 80% off table…fashionista bags were used casually to push and shove and get ahead of the line… leaving?

…once in the seat, it was all good vibes in the house… a start with (a just needed lift) of music and a visual walk-thru of 50 years of Barbie ads …I just wanted to burst OUT LOUD reading the captions of memory lane on the screen…and…

’I (still) want my dream house’… and ‘where is ken’?…(I’m still searching…)

there was a compilation… of 50 ‘dolls’ wearing none other than CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN pink shoes… BARBIE’s gone designer after all… who would have thought BARBIE is still a household name (even with the guys)…an unusually smiling front row Barbie FAN CLUB of sorts included actor Djimon Hounsou (‘tomb raider’), Kimora lee Simmons, Catherine Malandrino and the fashionable suspects trying to be serious… a barbie flashback of some timely fun…’what a doll’…

and these barbie looks are hot to wear….. going hip in faux furry YIGAL AZROUEL over sculpted rosettes.. THREE as FOUR in pink + white dangling pompoms… RAG and BONE in cool schoolgirl blue… a very graphic TRACY REESE with a neat bow… NICOLE MILLER checks away…a NORMA KAMALI t 50’s tradition in black + white dots of a suit… a happy TULEH Barbie girl and a ‘bon voyage’ from DIANE VON FURSTENBERG with a pink carry-on…

“can’t take my eyes off of you”…

.. a gorgeous bride in MONIQUE LHUILLIER and a MARCHESA gown goes on and on …a glittered sweet REBECCA TAYLOR ruffled, pretty and (cougar)-like Barbie shown by Derek lam… [bleu blanc rouge] stars and stripes at CATHERINE MALANDRINO.. and a lace-up REEM ACRA “miss Barbie”…

“how do u like your..barbie” [drama]…

futuristic Barbie is so green in BETSEY JOHNSON.. a TOMMY (fringed) HILFIGER… a space-aged short BLONDS event.. a HOUSE OF FIELD (patricia fields) fiercely sexy fantasy … and a spectacular BOB MACKIE Cher-like costumed drama, (boa-like) fuzzy white and all.. and a KENNETH COLE reminder that “everybody needs a ken
