Chanel Barbie

Even Barbie can't get enough of Chanel!

We've previously mentioned that it is the 50th anniversary of Barbie. She's already had an entire fashion show dedicated to her for her birthday, and now Karl Lagerfeld has designed numerous Chanel outfits for the doll icon that range from swimsuits to jeans (does Barbie even wear jeans? I guess if they're Chanel she does.) to a wedding dress to the classic tailored black and white Chanel skirt suit.

Barbie will be joined in the photos by real life model Baptiste Giabiconi. Barbie and Ken will be on display at France's Colette boutique form March 9-28. On March 12 you can attend a "high security exhibition" of the first Barbie and Ken dolls ever created. You can also purchase the silkscreen pictures of Barbie and Ken. Karl Lagerfeld makes a special appearance alongside Barbie as a white teddy bear wearing Lagerfeld's usual uniform of black sunglasses, black suit, and tie.

Even though they're just Barbie clothes, we still probably couldn't afford these Chanel pieces. UGH! Barbie does have the perfect life.
