Barbie Turns 50 in 2009

She has millions of fans. She has a wardrobe to die for. She endured much criticism throughout the years, including some from the feminist front. She survived scandals such as the one surrounding the questionable sexuality of her long-suffering boyfriend. No, it's not Oprah. Barbie turns 50 in the new year and, still looking fabulous, will celebrate this milestone with a series of events, including her own fashion show at New York Fashion Week in February, with big-name designers creating her outfits.


Suspended hockey bad boy Sean Avery may have started a trend of celebrities wanting to work – free, no less – in the fashion industry. In 2008, the NHLer took part in a much-publicized intern stint at Vogue. Now Kanye West has said he wants to intern at a fashion house. Look for him this year at either Louis Vuitton or Jil Sander. The hip-hop artist says he wants some hands-on experience before launching his own line. Finally, a celebrity who admits he could learn something from the fashion biz.
