Barbie, Fashion Icon of the 60's
Who Wore It Better? Take the POLL!
Remember "Us" Magazine's page showing two or three actresses in the same outfit, with the question "who wore it better"? Just for fun, here are some Vintage Barbies who just happened to show up in the same outfit. So...who wore it better?*
*(And please, collectors, don't take it personally if your doll is pictured and is behind in the poll! After all, there's no accounting for taste! :)
