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.

Absolutely mesmerising.

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.
