Happy Birthday Barbie!
Today the iconic doll turns 50 years old. She looks pretty good for being half a century old.
I have to admit that I feel like Barbie's been celebrating her birthday for months now. Between all of the fashion shows, doll recreations, new designer outfits, and parties thrown in her honour I'd say it was a helluva bash.
Here's hoping for another 50 years!
