She is a thirty-something eternal teen with a 900 million-outfit wardrobe and more than 1 billion pairs of shoes. The quintessential All-American Girl, she has a secret, sordid past linked to an ice-blond plastic sex toy from postwar Germany. Superheroine, cherished friend, and Space Age fertility symbol, she is one of the most potent American icons of the 20th century. Always in vogue, sometimes in step, forever controversial...forever Barbie.
