BARBIE®: The Dream Closet @ Lincoln Center

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, NYC

The world went all pink for just a moment in a very crowded party celebrating "The World's Most Fashionable Doll Opens The Pink Doors to her Coveted Closet."

Upstairs...six models posed in vintage Barbie® looks with fashions on loan from the Albright Fashion Library-including Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta and Chloe.

Downstairs, oversized dressing room on one side held Barbie® dolls galore...and gobs of grown-up gals lined up to have their pics taken in an assortment of iconic career-to couture looks, superimposed on-thanks to the wonders of virtual reality.

even the DJ got all glammy

360 pairs of pink-heeled pumps lined one wall, champagne flowed everywhere, and there was 8 foot custom-sculpted, live floral pink poodle an pink heel sculptures. A pity "they" only left  this installation up over the weekend...for a online take on Barbie's Dream Closet...check out www.barbiewow.com
