Spotted shopping at the Clothes Show Live on Friday were these two young walking, talking Barbie dolls - Sam, 15, and Hannah, 14. They don't usually dress like this, but they made a special effort for a day out at the annual fashion extravaganza. "My mum made both the skirts out of pink fun fur," says Sam, "and we had an embarrassing time in Woolworth's buying the Barbie vests and bags." Their entire outfits cost about pounds 10 each. "We didn't want to come in boring everyday clothes," says Sam. "This is the only place you can come dressed like this and nobody would look twice."

"We don't actually like the Barbie girl song," adds Hannah, who has far more sophisticated music tastes, like Jamiroquai and Skunk Anansie.
