Len LagruaAt the risk of sounding like a finger-snappin’, cape-wearin’, color-lovin’ male-fashion-editor cliché, I have to confess that I spent a lot of my childhood playing with dolls. Not the kind that join you for tea parties, mind you, but the one I could style and make over. She was a statuesque glamazon who never once objected to my fashion experimentation—and her name was Barbie. – Continue Reading BelowConvinced she never had anything good to wear—I never liked her collections at Toys “R” Us—I set out to create new looks I’d seen in fashion magazines. I redesigned outfits using thread, glue, and scissors; I turned skirts into tops, tops into belts , and coats into dresses; I styled and restyled her hair, sometimes adding fabric for headscarves I’d cut from my mother’s clothes (she still doesn’t know). I was determined to make her look spectacular every time she stepped out of her box. Who cared about the inappropriately dressed Cabbage Patch Kid? My concern lay strictly with one Barbie Millicent Roberts. So it was sweetly ironic that decades later my career path would take me back to dressing glamazons—only real ones who went by names like Cindy and Naomi. This was around the time a new model, Nadja Auermann, burst onto the scene with killer legs and dimensions that were widely compared to Barbie’s, had Barbie been real. However, Barbie’s measurements (5″ bust, 31/4″ waist, 5 3/16″ hips) actually translate to a 39″ chest, 21″ waist, and 33″ hips—clearly not Nadja and something closer to a pole dancer!I bring up my doll-playing formative years because this month is our annual Body Issue, and for the occasion I enlisted an old friend, who coincidentally turns 50 this year. I mean, how many 50-year-olds do you know who have a face full of plastic and still look this good?To pull this off, I gained entry into Mattel’s top-secret headquarters in L.A., where I styled four individual Barbies. I love the girls I created because they all represent my favorite elements of fashion. My inspiration came not only from the runways but also from the personal style of cool, iconic women and ELLE’s own fashion editors. After a day of pinning, prodding, and picking hair color and styles, I’m so excited that the results—instead of ending up in a pile on my playroom floor—can be shared with you! – Continue Reading Below NEXT: BARBIE CELEBRATES HER 50TH ON THE RUNWAYImaxtreeBIRTHDAY GIRL Barbie rang in her fiftieth this past February by collaborating with 50 designers in creating one-of-a-kind pieces shown during New York Fashion Week: everything from a redo of her first black-and-white striped bathing suit (reimagined by Rachel Roy) to a spectacular drop-dead showgirl costume, courtesy of Bob Mackie.
