"I've never played with a doll in my life," admitted Diane von Furstenberg at Saturday's Barbie fashion spectacle celebrating the iconic doll's 50th anniversary. "Pink Power" was the name of the game at Bryant Park, from the pink runway and seats to the entire venue awash in the bubblegum hue. Von Furstenberg was just one of many designers in attendance, including Peter Som, Rachel Roy, and Catherine Malandrino, who had designed or provided ensembles for real-life models made over into Barbie to strut down the catwalk.

Dylan Lauren, meanwhile, designed the special milk chocolate candies left at each guest's seat. "My dad, Ralph, never did a Barbie," she said, adding that she grew up playing with Barbie, who made her want to be blonde and not brunette. "But I'm getting my own Dylan Barbie soon; she wears a big dress gown of candy."
