Barbie Gets in on ‘The Hunger Games’ Action

Edited by

If it seems everyone and their mother has been caught up in The Hunger Games fever…they have been. It’s literally all that anyone in the FashionIndie office talks about, to my personal chagrin since I’m one of the three people on the planet who hasn’t read the books or seen the film. Said film, by the bye, grossed an astronomical $155 million stateside in its opening weekend, the third best opening weekend of all time. No big deal. And now that it is an official cultural touchstone, Mattel is hopping on its murderous bandwagon, offering a Barbie of protagonist/noted bad bitch Katniss Everdeen, portrayed in the film by future multiple Oscar winner, Jennifer Lawrence.

Barbie Trashes Her Dreamhouse

Edited by

Who knew Barbie was a hoarder and her Dreamhouse a sh*thole? Inspired by TV shows like Hoarders and How Clean Is Your House?, artist Carrie M. Becker put together this miniature trashed living space to link the doll’s overconsumption lifestyle with a hoarder’s reality. The details are astonishing and actually quite disgusting, which is why we are obsessing over it. Looking at the photos is like a Where’s Waldo? game. Can you find the Chanel and Gucci bags?

A Doll of an Idea!

Edited by

A Doll of an Idea!

The name might not carry the classy, luxury car effect like Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, but come February, Mattel, in partnership with CFDA will host a Barbie inspired Fashion Week. New York Magazine seems a bit apprehensive about a plastic doll being linked to the fashion industry, but I actually think think this could be a cool concept. Afterall, Barbie really is a symbol of all that is fashion and femininity in America. Fern Mallis, Fashion Week master of ceremonies, thinks Mattel Fashion Week will be a big hit: “For many young girls, [Barbie is] their first association with fashion and dressing up and changing clothes.” Let’s face it, all girls have played with a Barbie doll at some point, so why not rekindle the childhood fashion flame? 

Mattel also plans on throwing a “life-size” Barbie runway show featuring 50 looks from different designers. Quite a cool concept if you ask me! But I will agree with NY Mag in saying that Mattel’s plans to launch their “Plastic Smooth” makeup line is a bit overboard. Sorry, I don’t want to look like you can peel chunks of plastic off of my face! 

Thanks NY Mag
