We've been honoring Barbie's 50th birthday for so long that she must be fifty-one by now. Though the celebration's taken a turn from parties and runways to the editorial. Franca Sozzani's re-issuing the now legendary July 2008 issue of Vogue Italia celebrating the best of fashion's black models including Naomi Campbell, Jourdan Dunn, Iman and Sessilee Lopez, but this time she's including Barbie. Franca says, "Barbie has been an icon for whole generations which is why I really wanted to give a strong sign in step with the times, and dedicate the anniversary issue to black Barbie." No word on where exactly you can buy the re-issued issue and its Barbie-centric supplement, though we'll let you know when we see it. Not that Barbie's birthday isn't important, but does this mean they're re-releasing that issue every year?
