Barbie Glams Up & Gives Back

Barbie in little black dress! The just-launched Barbie Basics collection gives grown-up girls permission to play and celebrates every fashionista's must-have wardrobe staple - the iconic LBD. Twelve fab dolls each sport their own distinct silhouette of the fashion classic and represent a variety of hairstyles, facial features and skin tones. The dolls can be customized to represent your own personal style with the ultra-chic accessory packs.

What I love is that not only are they super stylist and hot, they are also very diverse. You got beach blond, red head, brunnette and every range in skin color. The best part is that these twelve Barbie will also be part of a fundraising event. To celebrate the launch of the LBD-loving Barbie Basics line, twelve CFDA fashion and accessories designers, including Isaac Mizrahi, Kate Spade's Deborah Lloyd , Tory Burch, Rachel Roy and Monica Botkier, created one-of-a-kind dolls spotlighting their unique points-of-view. Starting January 28 at 10pm EST through February 7, these individually styled pieces of art will be auctioned off on eBay with the entire net proceeds directly benefiting CFDA education initiatives and scholarship program. The opening bid begins at $100.
