Happy Birthday Barbie

Barbie Turns 50

Whether you love her or hate her, many girls at one point or another have probably played with her. I'm talking about Barbie, who is celebrating her first 50 years as an American fashion icon.

In more than 150 countries around the globe, approximately 1 billion Barbie Dolls have been sold since she was first introduced by the Mattel company on March 9, 1959.

With her trademark pink dress, high pony-tail and sassy pink corvette, the advent of Barbie's birth has the Fashion Design and Lifestyle team thinking PINK this weekend.

So, in the spirit of a pink open-toed salute to America's best-known doll...I hope you enjoy today's pink showcase:
