Barbie fans galore fought over seats in order to catch a glimpse of the doll’s 50th anniversary runway show in the tents on Saturday afternoon - Rachel Roy, Diane von Furstenberg, Heidi Klum, Simon Doonan, Jonathan Adler, Annie Lebowitz and Peter Som were just a few of the familiar faces in the front row who turned out to see the plastic fashion icon come to life.

 

Kimora Lee Simmons was there with boyfriend Djimon Hounsou who had his arms full with two limited edition Barbie dolls for Simmons' daughters, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, who walked in the finale. Simmons said she has been prepping for her own show, which will be later in the week, but is taking it easy since she’s due with her third baby, a boy, in just 12 weeks. “I’m feeling good,” she said, showing off her bump.
