Thank you for all those times you let me live vicariously through you: as a teenager with a corvette in Malibu, as a doctor with my own veterinarian practice, and as a figure skater with a glittery skirt and a pair of shiny ice skates.
Since 1959, Barbie has been an icon for kids to look up to, whether for fashion or life inspiration; a role model for them to realize their dreams (via a plastic, blonde doll in as many variations as imaginations would allow).
During Fashion Week, I couldn’t help but think of the fashion legend herself, whose gowns, perfectly fitted denim, fur scarves, purple heels, and little sunglasses (which I used to find scattered around my room among my scented erasers, tie-die socks, and Pogs) continue to inspire all of us. In honor of our favorite fashion influencer, we’ve raided the Barbie archives and pulled out our 47 favorite Barbie looks of all time to cap off Fashion Week Fall 2014. You’ll find Barbies by some of your favorite labels like MAC, Anna Sui, and Cynthia Rowley, plus Barbies to honor your favorite musicians like Joan Jett and Debbie Harry.
So browse through our favorites below (think Cher Horowitz’s closet-style) and comment with your ultimate favorite!
