Happy 50th Birthday Barbara! We don’t know many 50 year-olds who look this wrinkle free, but Barbara Millicent Roberts (or Barbie as she’s known as) hasn’t really aged much since she first appeared in New York in 1959. The 11 ½-inch, or 29-centimeter, plastic wonder and fashion icon has got a wardrobe to die for. Queens of Vintage takes a look at some of her outfits throughout the decades. Barbie’s first ever outfit is this amazing black and white swimsuit accessorized with white cats-eye sunglasses and a wicker beach bag. We love her black heels and dash of red lipstick.
