Hint Tip: Barbie at Colette

Barbie may have turned 50, but you'd see a Republican in France before you'd ever see a wrinkle on her face. To celebrate 50 years of eternal youth and impossible beauty, colette has assembled a Barbie Room on the first floor with all kinds of limited-edition, Barbie-branded goodies: a line of clothes and accessories from Jeremy Scott, a Bless hairbrush (well, a brush made of hair), Stila make-up, bow ties from Alexis Mabille, a Goyard trunk, Bruno Frisoni stilettos and so on. Meanwhile, in the gallery upstairs, Karl Lagerfeld has put together a Barbie and Ken photo exhibit of a life-sized cardboard Barbie posing with male model Baptiste Giabiconi as Ken. And on March 12 only, original Barbie and Ken dolls will be on display in the main window. Don't get any ideas, though. A security guard will be watching them like his life depended on it—and it probably does.

The latest magazine to have the honor is the debut issue of Paris, LA (don't let the comma confuse you, that's all one title), featuring the N°36 Nothingneath collection. Naturally the collaboration called for a party, this time at Brachfed Gallery in Paris...

The notoriously shy Bless girls are cracking open their nutty world a little with a sample sale that includes every collection going back to the very first. That's right, pieces from collections N°01 – 34 can be yours: November 14 & 15 at 14 rue Portefoin, 75003, Paris. We've always had a soft spot for their fur wigs circa 1998...
