Barbie Internship

She's been an astronaut, a doctor, a NASCAR driver, and a rapper—and, beginning Sunday, Barbie will start a new career in fashion, as an intern (just like everyone else in the industry). Starting this Sunday, Barbie will be working as an assistant at photographer Nick Knight's offices—and she'll be documenting her experiences in live vlogs. A tipster gave us the scoop: "Based at's Mayfair HQ, Barbie will be: chasing London Fashion Week show tickets for herself and the fashion team, sitting in on brainstorming sessions, assisting on shoots, making studio visits to artists and designers, as well as doing the coffee run to Starbucks." Is a tell-all book a la Devil Wears Prada next on the horizon? [Racked Inbox]
