Seems so soon, but LG Fashion Week is now officially over! I was planning on attending a few events this fall, but unfortunately, due to the insanity that was my life last week, I only had time (and energy) for one! Thanks to the lovely GCI people for inviting Al and I to the Mattel Media Presentation, as well as both David Dixon and Barbie by David Dixon fashion shows.
The media presentation focused on the launch of the new line of poseable Fashionista Barbie dolls, as well as a new (old?) Barbie dance, and of course, the David Dixon for Barbie collection. Barbies everywhere! And appropriately enough, Al and I each received a Barbie doll in our goodie bags! Man, was I ever happy to get my hands on one! Mine was Sassy and Al’s was Wild! And while I can see the issues that others bring up about Barbie’s impossible body, if I had to choose between a sleazy Bratz doll and a Barbie, the latter would win every time! Plus, I played with Barbies when I was a kid, and I turned out just fine. So while Al had the patience to keep her doll intact, I ripped it out of the packaging the moment I had a chance to sit down! It had brown hair, just like me! Score!
But as much as we loved our dolls, the Barbie dance…well, it wasn’t something that I enjoyed. And the dancers didn’t seem to enjoy the corny moves either. We all know the “I’m a Barbie girl” song, right? Well, the introduction of the “new” dance to the old song just seemed a bit forced and not at all necessary. The moves weren’t anything new or exciting and I was actually a bit embarrassed for the dancers, but they did their thing, so I guess we can give them an “A” for effort?
After the presentation, we were escorted to the David Dixon fashion show, where Al and I managed to score a couple of second row seats despite the packed showroom! Thanks Mattel! David Dixon’s “Hanging Gardens of Babylon” show review is next!
Apparently, if I were a Barbie, I’d be Sassy!
Check out the stylish Backseat Stylers, rocking an H&M dress with Loub booties! Hotness! Love the army (?) boots too!
