Barbie's New Malibu Mansion

The winner of the AIA Competition for the the Architect Barbie's new Dream House was revealed this week.  This eco friendly designer home was the collaboration of two Harvard trained architects, Ting Li and Maja Paklar.

Exterior of Barbies four story eco-friendly home with rooftop greenhouse

Interior features low flow toilets and sinks, and bamboo floors

Being a true "Barbie Girl" I was so enchanted by this wonderful house that I was inspired to check out the latest Barbies on the market.  I picked out several dolls that I absolutely loved and began to wonder what outfits in my Etsy shop would I dress them in if I could.  Below are the results.

Joan Collins Barbie in Vintage Leslie Fay

Linda Evans Barbie in Vintage A.J. Bari

Farrah Fawcett Barbie in a Vintage Wiggle Dress

Grace Kelly Barbie in a 1950s Vintage Summer Dress

I have to admit the Grace Kelly doll is my favorite, but maybe I'm just partial to princesses!
