Christie’s and kitsch usually don’t go together but they sure did the other night when the fancy auction house partnered with the CFDA and hosted a party for “Ken” – you know, Barbi’s blonde, blue eyed boyfriend with the male model looks. “From concerts and movies to picnics and walks on the beach, Ken always looks FAB,” gushed “Barbie” on the invite.


The “Kenswear” presentation featured stacks of Magnolia cupcakes for a sugar rush, guests like Fern Mallis and Bronson Van Wyck and live “Ken” models dressed by Yigal Azrouel (“Beach Date Ken), Robert Geller (“Movie Date Ken”), Michael Bastian (“Picnic Date Ken”), Billy Reid (“Winter Date Ken”), Nicholas K (“Concert Date Ken”) and Simon Spurr (“Formal Date Ken”).


Which Ken would you try to steal away from Barbie?
