Barbie Girls in South Florida

There are lots of Barbies walking around in South Florida. Blond, beach-tanned, with huge knockers. But like my friend aptly put it, "Not many Kens." Well all lookalikes are invited to the Barbie & Ken Look-Alike Contest on Friday to promote the Cornell Museum of Art & American Culture's current exhibition, BARBIE's Back and She's 50! Participants are urged to come in doll-like attire (which in Barbie's case means pretty much anything as she is a Jill of all trades) and compete for prizes, including a free stay at Crane's BeachHouse Hotel.
