Vogue Paris Barbie-inspired feature
This news got the FJ gals squealing. We’re completely fascinated by Vogue Paris’ December/January 2015 feature by Italian photographer Giampaolo Sgura. It’s a Barbie-inspired shoot, with models Elisabeth Erm and Magdalena Frackowiak as dolls all packaged up and ready to go.
Don’t worry. We’re well aware of how creepy this is. Plastic dolls in boxes with stares akin to The Stepford Wives? We could even go into broader discussions about the objectification of women in the fashion industry.
But let’s take a moment to appreciate the immense detail behind this feature. It’s creepy, but it’s also kind of amazing. Look at her perfectly placed accessories. They’re even secured with those ridiculous white tags that were such a biatch to remove when you were a kid.
There’s a Haute Couture doll for 12 fashion houses and their current collections. Our favourites include the classic pink Moschino doll, the Fendi tennis player, and the Dolce & Gabbana Spanish flamenco dancer/guitar player. The Saint Laurent David Bowie impersonator also deserves a shout-out.
Another sold out items from Barbie x Christian Louboutin project
‘My Year in Paris with Christian Louboutin’.
Barbie continues to take the fashion world by storm and thanks to shoe designer Christian Louboutin, she’s just received a third, red-carpet worthy makeover.
Dressed in a satin gown with lilac Anemone Louboutin’s, the Anemone Barbie is ready to attend the Cannes film festival in style.
Barbie revealed her first outfit in the Christian Louboutin collection last November, the Cat Burglar.
Her second look, Forever Dolly, was revealed in February, a safari chic ensemble with fuschia over-the-knee fringed boots.
Her latest, glamorous look represents the timeless beauty of Barbie, the Christian Louboutin woman, and the designer’s style aesthetic.
Added fashion bonus? She comes complete with three alternate pairs of shoes, along with mini Christian Louboutin boxes and signature red shoe bags.
This third Barbie completes the set of Louboutin designed Barbie’s, and is a must for any collector.

What’s the next big thing in fashion accessories? The status keychain. Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to create an outrageous must-have item: the Bag Boy Karlito from Fendi, which will set you back a cool $1,750. The luxe bag charm made its debut in February, when it walked the runway dangling from model Cara Delevingne’s finger at Fendi’s fall 2014 fashion show in Milan (above).
Crafted in designer Lagerfeld’s iconic likeness—who not only designs for the Fendi label, but also for Chanel and his namesake brand Karl Lagerfeld—the pricey trinket is made from mink and fox fur. Just like the man himself, the keychain wears a white collar and black tie. The fabulous mini-me doll also features a recreation of Lagerfeld’s trademark sunglasses and ponytail of white hair.
