Barbie turns 50 today and to mark the occasion, Mattel is throwing a birthday bash in a specially outfitted Malibu Dream House.
The doll's maker commissioned interior decorator Jonathan Adler to deck out a real-life house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Malibu property is one that's often rented for film and photo shoots.
Adler lined Barbie's bedroom with wall-to-wall pink carpeting emblazoned with her initial. The closet is filled with 50 pairs of pink peep-toe heels while her kitchen is stocked with cupcake-making ingredients. The garage contains a pink Volkswagen New Beetle with a motorized pop-up vanity in the trunk.
Following the festivities, most of the Barbie decor will be shipped to the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas to furnish a special pink-tinted Barbie Suite.
