Barbie's 50th Birthday Bash: A Real Splash in Malibu

By March 13, 2009

Follow me on:

Barbie, who has evolved in her 50 years as the world's best-selling fashion doll,wasgiven a birthday bash on Monday, March 9, that can only be described as "swell," "neat-o,""groovy," "unreal," "rad," "ab-fab," "amazing" and all those other au courant adjectivesthe perpetual teenager has used during the past half-century.

No "Over the Hill" party theme for this diva. Her real friends, including Heidi Klum,Ginnifer Goodwin, LC, "Lo,"acouple of the Kardashian sistersand interior designerJonathan Adler, showed up at the Adler-decorated Barbie real-life Malibu Dream House to celebrate in true Barbie fashion. The commemorative soiree included a look at the doll's various styles and careers during her 50 years, along with human-sized recreations of her VW Beetle, swimming pool and patio, and ocean-view firepit.

Somehow got left off the guest list? Not to worry.Southern California photographer Rebecca Merlino captured the pretty and pink festivities at the 3,500-square-foot Dream House.
