Julie says: "The house is pretty fun, but the chandelier very very odd."

In honor of Barbie's 50th Birthday yesterday, locally based Mattel revealed the famous ultimate California blonde's Malibu Dream House along with the new version of Barbie. The 3,500 square foot house in Malibu was designed by "Happy Chic" interior designer Jonathan Adler and features a chandelier made of Barbie hair, a closet filled with thousands of shoes and a sunburst mirror made from 65 Barbie dolls.
