the cougar turns Fifty!

Miz Barbie is 50!

To commemorate her birthday, Mattel released a limited edition, revamped version of her 1959 black and white striped bathing suit doll. The 2009 Black-and-White Bathing suit doll, priced at $3 (the same price she was first sold as), comes clad in a two piece bathing suit, cell phone in hand, little beach bag and a face lift, ok, more like a (as Mattel would describe) 'brand new face sculpt.'

Don't wanna bore you with all the girly birthday bash details, so check out more info here.

Wonder what Miss B would like if she aged normally, per se?

Check an artist rendition I found:
