Lakmé Fashion Week: All Doll'd Up.

Day 1 of Lakmé Fashion Week got off to a pinker than pink start with a fiftieth anniversary tribute to the iconic doll, Barbie. With all my fashion references to Barbie, of course I had to cover the tribute show "All Doll'd Up" which showcased twenty winning designs inspired by Barbie. Marc Robinson directed the show which was full of sugar-n-spice and everything nice and also involved copious amounts of tulle. Whaddaya expect? It's Barbie!

The show stopper was none other than little Chanel, daughter of Marc and Waluscha (D'Souza) Robinson. In her first appearance, she strutted down the ramp all smiles and confidence in a creation by The Shirt Company. She walked to Aqua's infamous Barbie Girl, which if you've heard the lyrics, you'd agree was a highly inappropriate musical choice for a tyke.
