Barbie, manufactured by the American toy-company Mattel, Inc., turned 53-years-old last Friday (March 9) and the standard Barbie doll hasn’t really evolved much over time.
In 2009, Barbie celebrated her 50th birthday. The celebrations included a runway show in New York for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The event showcased fashions contributed by fifty well-known haute couturiers including Diane von Fürstenberg, Vera Wang, Calvin Klein, Bob Mackie, and Christian Louboutin.
Over the years, there have been many other Barbie configurations which don’t really fall in to the “normal” Barbie mold.
