What happens when MAGIA 2000 turns a fashion icon like Anna Dello Russo into a classic like Barbie?
The news was out: Magia 2000 was doing an audition for a Anna Dello Russo makeover. The chosen Barbie would be taken to the best hairdresser in town to get the ADR hairdo, and to the Dolce&Gabbana store to get the signature outfit of the italian fashion icon. All the Barbies in town got dressed up in order to win this opportunity. In the auditions, I observed that everybody was wearing black sandals matched with a simple yet sexy black dress. Magia 2000 was feeling generous so the creative duo, Mario Paglino and Gianni Grossi, decided to take all the dolls to a big styling session. They would all be dressed up as Anna Dello Russo look-a-likes and the best one would get the chance to meet the icon herself.
First they went to the Dolce&Gabbana store in Via Spiga 26 to try on some shoes. From pink pumps to black sandals, all of them looked amazing. There was one girl who tried on green-ish wedges and got eliminated from the contest right that moment: Wedges've never been a signature of Anna Dello Russo look and would've never been... So if she didn't know that, she would better get back home. Ok.
Then they went to the dressing rooms to try on everything they found. From leopard clutches to pink coats, from sequined tops to lace trousers... Yet Bianca refused to change her bob cut. Magia 2000 insisted that this haircut made her look like Anna Wintour rather than Anna Dello Russo, so it was quite a no-no! When she said she couldn't live without her bob, they sent her back home. The Asian Barbie was so sweet yet she didn't have the looks to resemble Anna. One of the brunettes chose the Dolce&Gabbana lace dress with a red corset inside and a leopard clutch... That one won all the hearts.
Here she is. Meet Rebecca, The Anna Dello Russo Look-a-like in Dolce&Gabbana. The combination of blonde curls, lace dress, leopard touches, red corset and sexy lipgloss got her the winner position.
Next thing she knew, she was in her arms of her favourite fashion icon, Anna Dello Russo, in her very own apartment. Being a Barbie was one thing, being a Anna Dello Russo look-a-like Barbie was whole another level. And she loved it.
