Barbie Travel Couture: London,Sydney, Japan. Digging The Big Ben Dress!

Did you know that it's Barbie's 52nd Birthday this month? Yes, the world's favorite fantastic, plastic doll is a golden girl! And her wardrobe has gone through a fashion time warp, too! What caught my eye recently at Target was the line of destination-inspired Barbie dolls!

From left: British Barbie in a brown, Big Ben dress! Ask her the time and she'll tell you it's time for high tea AND high fashion! Then there's Aussie Barbie with a dress as architecturally complex as the Sydney Opera House! Finally. there's Japanese Barbie in a memoir-worthy geisha garb!

Not sure what else is there in that line but there wasn't an Arctic Barbie with trekking poles on display.

Which one's your favorite? Mine would have to be the Big Ben Barbie...London's the only place I've visited among the three! (Layovers in Japan don't really count!)

I do recall seeing Maria Clara-outfitted Filipina souvenir Barbies at Sta. Lucia East Grand Mall in the Philippines. Now that would be a true brown incarnation of Barbie!

Naaalala mo pa ba ang unang Barbie doll mo? May Ken ka rin ba noon? Susyal na talaga si Barbie ngayon, no?

I had no idea that this month it’s Barbie month. I love Barbie dolls so much. So, from left to right: I love the hair color on British Barbie, love the fabulous dress on Australian Barbie. It’s so beautiful with the architectural style and glamorous. And I absolutely love the make-up and hairdo on the Japanese Barbie.
