The ultimate American dream girl was based on a German sex toy from the '50s, but since then she's been a doctor, an astronaut, a race car driver, and a Malibu surfer.
Now she'll also be muse to Jeremy Scott, who makes a Barbie-inspired collection for Paris Fashion Week. The line debuts on March 12 at Colette, but Americans will also get their shot with the plasticine princess in the middle of February:
Mattel just announced their sponsorship of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City, meaning this February, you'll be seeing a lot more pink... and maybe some plastic shoes that keep getting lost, too.
