Now that this year is coming to a close, I must say: This has been the most amazing birthday celebration a doll could ask for! I have never seen hotter fashions, made better friends or been to more fabulous parties. And while each day seemed more amazing than the last, there are certain moments I’ll never forget.
Now that ’09 is coming to a close, here’s the top 10 from my big five-oh:
#10. Spending V-Day with Ken
This might be #10 on my list, but you know he’ll always be my number one. (Even if we’re still just good friends…no, really!)
#9. Shooting with Lagerfeld + colette + Paris = OMG
What’s a doll to do when the leader of Chanel and well, the fashion world, Mr. Lagerfeld himself, takes your pic? You strike the fiercest pose you can bend into! And, uh, working with Baptiste? Seriously, sometimes being a doll is the best job in the world.
#8. Shopping on Fashion’s Night Out
The city that never sleeps stayed up a little later than usual for, what else? The hottest fashion event around. Fashionistas and stylish dolls from around the globe got doll’d up when New York hosted the hottest shopping event of the season. I definitely shopped ‘til I dropped.
#7. Cheering at the Kentucky Derby
I was riding high and feeling like the doll of the ball at the Kentucky Derby! On May 2nd, Churchill Downs was the chicest place around. Hats off!
#6. Stepping in for Heidi Klum
What do you get when you mix Fashion Week, two iconic blondes and a video camera? Only one of the most amazing runway recaps you have ever seen. I will step in for that doll any day!
#5. Thanking the Judges
From Divine Design to the ACE Awards, it was a good year to walk the pink carpets. And I have to admit…these super shiny trophies sure look awfully pretty in my Dream House.
#4. Shooting My First Music Video
Point! Snap! Twist! Making my very first music video with JaQuel Knight was totally tops, and now, in a few easy moves, every girl can groove like a Barbie girl in a Barbie world!
#3. Lounging Poolside in Vegas
Then, just when I thought it couldn’t get any better, I was whisked off to paint Sin City pink! My time wasn’t just spent laying at the pool either…I also spent plenty of time relaxing in the sweetest suite a girl could ask for.
#2. Watching My Own Fashion Week Fashion Show
The designers. The models. And above all: The totally amazing couture. I simply couldn’t get enough of the most fabulous runway show in the tent.
#1. Partying at the Hottest Birthday Bash Ever
The absolute, without a question top highlight of my year? No doubt, it was on my actual birthday party in my luxe Malibu Dream House. Colin Cowie planned. Jonathan Adler perfected. Louboutin had everyone drooling. I couldn’t have asked for more to celebrate the best night of my life! Relive it with me here.
Whew, best year ever, right? Could anything be better than all this? We’ll see…just you wait ‘til next year, dolls!
