The words "Barbie doll" used to elicit the image of a ditzy blonde bimbo. No longer. Since Nov. 20, the 50th anniversary of this iconic doll and beloved plaything of little girls everywhere, 500 Barbies --including various Barbies wearing chadors and full burkas -- have been on show at the Salone del Cinquecento in Florence, Italy.
