Get the Look: Barbie and Ken

In honor of the 60th birthday of the ever youthful and fashionable doll and of her perpetual dream date, the VFG Fashion Parade this week is devoted to Barbie and Ken.

Wearing miniature wardrobes worthy of Best Dressed lists, these style icons have ignited and inspired young interest in fashion from 1959 to the present. Since the early days, Barbie has undergone many transformations, changed races and faces, run for President, been a paleontologist and a rock star. She has had over 150 careers and broke the plastic ceiling when she reached the moon four years before Neil Armstrong.

This week we are focusing especially on the first decade of Barbie and Ken, the years that might be considered their most iconic. With names like “Gay Parisienne” and “Golden Elegance,” Barbie’s early outfits were detailed and coordinated, while Ken managed to be everything from doctor to baseball player to sailor.

Ever wished you could dress like Barbie or Ken? We’re here for you, with authentic vintage clothing suitable for the full-sized versions of this stylish pair of dolls.
