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.

Meet Queen Jetsun Pema of Bhutan

The young, beautiful, and fashionable Queen of Bhutan, a country secluded from the world's limelight due to its remoteness, has already been generating a stir ever since her marriage to the King and her rise to the position of Queen Consort. She is a powerhouse in her own right, and much loved by the Bhutanese people. However, on a fun and superficial level, she has also drawn favorable comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge, so much so, that she is sometimes referred to as the "Kate Middleton of the Himalayas".
So who is this Himalayan Queen? At 25-years-old, she is the youngest Queen Consort in the world. Like Kate, she was a commoner (though with an aristocratic lineage) and the daughter of a pilot. She is fashionable, athletic, and holds a university arts background. Additionally, she herself is a brand new mum, having recently given birth to a baby boy.
As with Wills and Kate, the King and Queen of Bhutan have always shown great respect for their country's cult…
