I will admit I was Barbie obsessed as a kid. No big surprise. I think many women who are into fashion and beauty were probably Barbie lovers as kids. And maybe some of us kinda miss playing with the ultimate doll? That’s the idea behind the just-launched Barbie Basics collection celebrating the iconic little black dress.
To make you feel better about still clamouring over Barbie (and to celebrate the launch of the LBD-loving Barbie Basics line) twelve CFDA fashion and accessories designers, including Isaac Mizrahi, Kate Spade’s Deborah Lloyd, Tory Burch, Rachel Roy and Monica Botkier, created one-of-a-kind dolls spotlighting their unique points-of-view. Starting January 28 at 10pm EST through February 7, these individually styled Barbies will be auctioned off on eBay at barbie-basics with the entire net proceeds directly benefiting CFDA education initiatives and scholarship program. The opening bid begins at $100.
