While parsing New York’s Fashion Week runways for styles that might actually catch on in Denver can be challenging, four-year-olds everywhere (and four-year-olds at heart) are sure to enjoy the offerings from the recent “Plastic Fantastic” show. It was the ultimate 50th birthday bash for the doll with the biggest wardrobe, whose birthday is actually today. Featuring confections by the likes of Donna Karan, Diane Von Furstenberg, Calvin Klein, Marchesa, and even Bob Mackie, the glam looks included girly bustier dresses done up in pink rosettes, sequins or petal appliquÃ©, a frothy pink chiffon gown, teeny boleros, and even a pinup-ready, polka-dot bikini. Total kitsch? Absolutely, but the show offered a fun respite from a high-pressure fashion season. More photos from the runway:
