The life and times of Barbie will be celebrated at Paris Fashion Week with a glamorous exhibition.

The colourful collection features models who 'walk' the catwalk in high-fashion creations from the likes of Christian Lacroix and Jean Paul Gaultier - as well as historical figures including former Queen of France, Marie Antoinette.
