When Ken rocked some pretty daring outfits in Toy Story 3 earlier this year, Esquire quickly snapped him up for an awesome photoshoot and hot feature in their mag back in August. Sporting outfits from Burberry, Paul Smith, Gucci and Prada, Ken really has cemented his place as a true fashion icon!

In 1971, John Pasche, a budding young British artist, was commissioned by the Rolling Stones to produce a logo intended to be used as the album artwork for Sticky Fingers. After meeting Mick Jagger for the first time, Pasche was inspired to come up with the now infamous lips and tongue design by the “size of his lips and mouth”. Voted in 2008 as the Greatest Band Logo of all time, and widely credited as the first ‘rock brand marketing’, the iconic design has been celebrated, for better or worse, in some zany ways over the past forty years. We celebrate our favourite here, and now!
Barbie, ‘the’ iconic fashion doll of nearly every little girl since 1959 has a new career — as a computer engineer!
For the first time, Mattel took an online vote, asking people to select the Barbie doll’s 125th career by choosing between architect, computer engineer, environmentalist, news anchor or surgeon.
“As a computer engineer, Barbie will show girls that women can turn their ideas into realities that have a direct and positive impact on people’s everyday lives in this exciting and rewarding career,” she said. Mattel polled fans on Facebook and Twitter for Barbie’s next big career change.
However, while the popular vote went to computer engineer, Mattel noted that girls selected news anchor as their favored career for the doll that, over the years, has been an aerobics instructor, nurse, flight attendant, NASCAR driver and an ambassador.
The girls’ choice wasn’t disregarded. News Anchor Barbie will be the doll’s next career.
The toy company, which unveiled both new career-minded dolls at the 2010 American International Toy Fair last weekend, noted that they are both expected to hit store shelves very soon.
Computer Engineer Barbie is going geek chic with a binary code patterned T-shirt. She’s also decked out with a pink laptop, a smartphone, a Bluetooth headset, and trendy eye wear.
To add to the idea of being a computer engineer, the doll comes with a code that unlocks exclusive online game content on Barbie.com.
And for all you nerds out there that are wondering what the binary code on the laptop screen says. It says “Barbie Barbie Barbie” in ASCI.

Jennifer Grey, who co-starred with Swayze in Dirty Dancing, said in a statement: “Patrick was a rare and beautiful combination of raw masculinity and amazing grace. Gorgeous and strong, he was a real cowboy with a tender heart.
“He was fearless and insisted on always doing his own stunts, so it was not surprising to me that the war he waged on his cancer was so courageous and dignified.”
Rob Lowe, who played in a number of films with Swayze, said: “Patrick lived a thousand lifetimes in one lifetime. He was an expert dancer, he wrote hit songs, he starred in hit movies, he was an amazing horseman.
“But the thing I will remember him most for was his amazing love affair with his wife Lisa.”
Demi Moore has also paid tribute to her co-star in the hit film Ghost, saying: “Patrick you are loved by so many and your light will forever shine in all of our lives.”
She added: “I love and will miss you Patrick.”
