A retrospective by the empress of prep herself, Lisa Birnbach devoted to Barbie
The book features glowingly lit Barbie-comes-to-life shots--if life, that is, included Vera Wang gowns, summers in Martha’s Vineyard and “Wizard of Oz” fantasy scenes in a blue gingham dress with a plastic Toto. Not to mention a solo audition before a wry Sting--a friend of the book’s photographer, Nancy Ellison--sitting on a graffiti-marked bench as Barbie “plays” guitar in a thigh-skimming fuchsia dress and trippy pink platform shoes.
