The Fashion Bomb News Breakdown: Nicki Minaj is Finally A Barbie, Michael Kors Goes Public, and Lanvin’s Holiday Video
By The Fashion Bomb Staff

• It’s Barbie, b*tch–for realsies this time. By the power invested in Mattel, Nicki Minaj‘s likeness is finally represented with a single pink wigged Barbie doll, to be auctioned off for charity.

Bidding starts at $1,000, and money from the proceeds will go to Project Angel Food, which helps people affected by HIV/AIDS. Wonder if the booty is proportionally correct? (MTV)

• Today’s the day! Download the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, and take a digital tour of the designer’s work dating back to the 1960s. Get the app here. (Valentino Garavani Archives)

• Michael Kors is going public! The designer plans to sell 48 million shares for between $16 and $19 apeice, which could raise some serious bucks for Mr. Kors. So… who’s buying shares? (WWD)

• You’re never too old to compete with younger women! 84-year-old Marie Kolstad is the oldest woman in the world to get breast implants. She went from a 36B to a very perky 38D. She says the difficult dating climate at her age is the reason she got the surgery: “I would love to find a new man, but all the men my age want women 20 years younger. I thought I’d better take action so I can compete.” Who knew the senior citizen dating scene was so competitive?  (Daily Mail)

• Here is the new Holiday Video for Lanvin, featuring the delightful (and authoritative) Alber Elbaz, and some folks dancing slightly off beat. We’ll forgive them. (Racked)

    Dang. Gran’s bits look better than mine. LOL

  7. Caribbelle says:

    The stock option is tempting, Kors has been pretty reliable but I’d have to investigate thoroughly before even considering setting down some coins lol. I wonder why now though?

    Of course the senior citizen dating scene is competitive. It might not be a race to have babies, but it is a race against death. The end could literally be on the side of that very pool where she sips her pina colada. It only takes one chubby third grader and a canon ball. Cheers to her for getting a 2 cup sizes up on the competition <3
