Vogue the Barbie Issue…Review

From the moment i pulled out the bright yellow, compact book from the July issue of Italian Vogue – i was in awe. The Barbie issue, featuring black barbies from over 40 years is very impressive. From curls to afros, caramel to midnight, teeth to scarlet lips – who knew there were so many variations of the eponymous doll out there.

In total there are 21 different ‘photshoots’ including my favourite POOLSIDE in which the models are ‘dolled’ up in couture finery at a Hamptons-esque pool party.

It’s just so darned clever this book, really it is – and I must applaud the editor, set deisgners, photgraphers and Mattel for their vision and the guts to carry it through.

Hurry and get a copy now, as it is the July issue and selling out fast. If you feel inspired to, you can get more info at http://www.barbiecollector.com.
