Did anyone know about this??! The first of three Christian Louboutin limited edition Barbie, Dolly Forever, was released May 3, 2010. Each Doll comes with 4 Barbie sized Christian Louboutin shoes and boxes… and bags! Seeing these barbies was so exciting, I haven’t even thought of barbie in years, but who doesn’t want a pair of C.

The final Barbie was released on April 28, 2010, Anemone Barbie.

WOW! Emma Watson is apparently the highest grossing actress of the last decade! Being a Harry Potter Fan myself I figure that is more than enough reason to have an Emma Watson post about her new found modeling career. But then I find out her brother Alex Watson is also modeling! He appeared along side Emma for the Burberry Spring/Summer 2010 collection.
