Barbie steps out in Hervé Léger by Max Azria

As countless other VIPs before her: Miranda Kerr, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Victoria Beckham, etc., Barbie will be stepping out on the 23rd of October in her own red bandage dress, accented with a black corset belt, black gladiator boots and a signature black and gold clutch at the Hervé Léger by Max Azria flagship store in London: 29 Lowndes street, Knightsbridge SW1X 9HX. This will be very unlike my last sighting of Barbie in Prague, where she was actually 'up the duff', I think by Ken.

Here, Barbie will be in her element with her miniature dresses constructed out of authentic Hervé Léger by Max Azria bandages and yarns. The micro collection will also be manufactured at the same factory that produces the full designer collection.


Of course not being just a 'one outfit' kind of girl, Barbie comes complete with a second runway-inspired outfit change: black and white jacquard dress, open-toe booties and a black studded clutch. Go girl, GO!

In Paris, surrounded by SS14 showcases and catwalk shows, I linger on the thought of Hervé Léger by Max Azria's recent collection at NYFW and wonder who will be getting the NEW fringed pieces first. HER or ME?
