The latest gal to join Mattel's Barbie I Can Be line of career-oriented dolls is—drum roll, please—Barbie Architect! Two members of the American Institute of Architects consulted with Mattel, who says Barbie Architect, seen here with the latest version of her Dream House, is "ready to tackle the daily responsibilities of a real architect in or out of the office... wearing an architecturally inspired dress showcasing a city skyline, Barbie doll’s outfit is symmetrically stylish with bold colors and clean lines." You are what you wear, right Barbs? Anyway, she's right on trend with those rockin' ankle booties and the blatant love of the color pink. We're guessing she carries a yoga mat in that blueprint bag when she's off the clock. Barbie Architect will hit stores in fall.
