What's On


Bibliothèque Louis Nucéra, Nice

  • Barbie, enduring fashion icon.


We all cherish memories of Barbie – styling her hair, admiring her outfits, seeing a face light up on discovering her.... For decades little girls have dreamed multiple lives for her, from riffing on Jackie Kennedy wrapped in red velvet haute couture through suited businesswoman to out-and-out party girl. On her 60th birthday, Barbie nostalgics can admire her in many guises at the Bibliothèque Louis Nucéra, for the iconic doll is paying the Riviera a visit until 25 May. Thanks to a private collector’s loan of 200 Barbies, the Mattel superstar born 9 March 1959 at New York’s toy fair is on the Côte d’Azur for an exhibition entitled “Miss B’s Dream Life”. From gingham skirt to on-fleek look, her clothes tell the story of fashion from the Fifties, and take us on a fabulous trip back through childhood!
