So Barbie has immortalised many celebrities, even works of art, and has worked with most of the top fashion houses over the years, but this has to be her most stylish makeover, my favourite doll is getting the Karl Lagerfeld treatment.
This is no ordinary doll, Barbie will be channelling the fashion designer’s complete look, from his trademark white ponytail to his signature tailored black jacket and even his fingerless gloves. I am also loving the fat necktie and dark sunglasses as her accessories, so stylish and so Lagerfeld.
Set to be released in the autumn in the States this is going to be one popular doll, no word on the actual date, or how much, but I think it will be similar to the Herve Leger and The Blonds Barbie’s that were $150.
I have to be honest I am sold and can’t wait to add Barbie Lagerfeld to my collection.
My only wonder is will there also be a mini Choupette?

French magazines are showing the world how it is done lately, I loved Diane Kruger for the French Marie Claire, Eva Mendes looked stunning on the cover of Glamour Paris, and now Victoria Beckham has revealed exclusive piccies of her Elle France shoot alongside Karl Lagerfeld.
If getting her pins out wasn’t enough, doesn’t she look hot, her cover shoot was also snapped by the one-the-only Karl Lagerfeld, plus it was all done at the home of Coco Chanel, seriously I would die to be on that staircase at 31 Rue Cambon.
Victoria looks stunning in the both shots, I adore her Lanvin black jumper teamed with Chanel jewellery, very Parisian, and the second shot shows off her own glasses line, which I so need – very geek chic!!!
Tweeting the piccies, Victoria said that the shoot with Karl was “a dream come true!” and I can’t wait to see the cover if these snaps are anything to go by as it is surely going to be amazing.
The former Spice Girl also receives high praise from Chanel creative director in ELLE France, which hits newsstands Friday, who said: “Victoria has an innate sense of style. She knows what she likes, and knows what is good for her.”
What do you think of the two shots released? I am already heading out the door to the gym to get legs like hers!!!
So here it is, Victoria Beckham’s ELLE France cover shot by Karl Lagerfeld – anyone else not as wowed as they thought they would be after seeing the first two shots from the accompanying editorial??? Don’t get me wrong I like it, I just don’t love it. Maybe it is because I have seen Victoria in this Victoria Beckham dress before, I want to say in a couple of colours, she looks great, the dress looks amazing, and I even don’t dislike her arms being crossed – I am just not blown away.
What do you think of Victoria’s ELLE France cover?

You may have already seen Anna Dello Russo tweet a piccie of her new iPhone case from Moschino this week but I couldn’t resist sharing the beauty that is simply known as Gennarino, the Moschino mascot bear.
Coming to Moschino boutiques in September this adorable iPhone case will set you back around $75 but come on it is so worth it – I have to admit I am loving my new HTC One X but this beauty makes the iPhone very appealing!!!
I love the brown bear with a red bow – but I am also hearing that iPhone addicts will also be able to spoil their mobiles with either a yellow bear with a blue bow or a pink bear with a green bow – I have to be honest all three sound good to me.
Can’t wait until September to give your iPhone a make-over? Why not try one of these designer beauties:
