So Barbie has been an astronaut, a TV anchor, nurse, ballroom dancer, a racecar driver, vet and everything else in between, and now Miss B is taking up her new position from today, as the new intern to photographer Nick Knight and the team.

Utilising the new Barbie Video Girl she will be posting live video updates on the blog as well as well as documenting her behind-the-scenes of London fashion.

As with all interns at this time of year Barbie will be chasing LFW tickets, assisting on shoots, making studio visits to designers as well as doing the coffee run – well not quite but I love the creativity behind the concept. Her first task will be assisting with SHOWstudio’s latest exhibition, In Wolves Clothing: Re-Imagining the Doll, which launches as part of Vogue’s Fashion’s Night Out on Wednesday.

I love this latest Barbie, I first saw her at the Hamleys Christmas press day, as she has a video camera hidden in her necklace, and a video screen on her back hidden by her hoodie and she can record up to 30 minutes of footage. So wrong that I want one isn’t it???? But come on how cool to be sat front row at LFW filming with Barbie – I can’t wait to see LFW through a doll’s perspective!!
