LEGALLY BLONDE: Barbie’s 50th birthday celebrations continue with a Paris exhibition of new pint-size designer looks for the plastic diva set to be unveiled at Galeries Lafayette on Monday. Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Lacroix, Jean Paul Gaultier and Sonia Rykiel count among around 50 designers to have downsized signature looks for the “Barbie Fashion Show 2009” event. Meanwhile, Maison Martin Margiela offered an incognito Barbie who comes dressed in a flesh-tone face mask and bodysuit, a pair of black fishnet tights and a shaggy coat crafted from glossy blonde wigs. Ending April 25, the show will travel, according to a Mattel spokeswoman.

SWIRLING AROUND:
Cedric Charbit, one of Paris’s more outspoken retail figures, has joined Emilio Pucci. Charbit said he signed on as deputy general manager, and will be based between Florence and Paris, reporting to Pucci’s general manager Didier Drouet. Charbit had a brief stint as a general merchandise manager at Harrods in London but is best known as the longtime vice president of the buying office and general merchandise manager of women’s fashion for Printemps.
