I read about another new Barbie website launched today. It's called Barbie Style! It is supposed to help you keep up with all the happenings for Barbie's 50th and all the products and new items released to celebrate Barbie. There are also videos, history and news!
The Barbie Stila cosmetics are now available at Sephora. Besides the Black Barbie set previously discussed here, there is a Malibu Barbie set, a #1 Vintage Barbie Set and a 2000 Jewel Doll set. From Sephora's website: "In this collection, created to celebrate Barbie's 50th birthday, each paint can features the look of an iconic Barbie doll from the past five decades. Inside each can is everything you need to get that beautiful Barbie doll's signature look. The Barbie Loves Stila paint can also includes a "Barbie Look Book" that includes a history of each top-selling Barbie doll over the last five decades." I really like the look of each can and each represents a popular Barbie through the make-up of the time. It's really hard to decide which one to buy isn't it?

Jason was approached by Michelle's team to submit sketches. He submitted three dresses and they were delivered to Michelle in December. She chose this dress and Jason Wu was surprised as he found out by seeing the dress on TV! Jason said, "It's thrilling, emotional and inspiring." "As a young designer this is a dream come true!" He waned to design something about hope, newness and something dreamlike that represents the Obamas. We are making history and he wanted to express that. (From CNN call in interview with Jason Wu.)

The 2009 Barbie Convention website has finally gone live. The tickets are already sold out but you can read about the various events and the schedule there in any case.
Keep checking Sephora.com for the new cosmetics by Stila featuring four new Barbie inspired collections. The collection features four Decades of Beauty cans, each $40, with a booklet inside describing the beauty and fashion wardrobes for each doll. The third set inspired by the 80s features the beautiful Steffie faced Black Barbie. Ooh, a must have. well, they all sound great.
