She's glamorous and sparkly with her long blond hair, side-swept bangs, pale pink short skirt and Chanel-style fitted jacket. And those accessories! Black ankle-strap platform pumps with pink bows, shiny black microphone, news folder and camera.


Meet Journalism Barbie! The latest career from Mattel's Barbie I Can Be... line that lets America's favorite doll try out new gigs.

The journalism job was chosen by a global vote, but, of course, this news anchor Barbie is into TV journalism -- a newspaper reporting doll would just be so 2009.

The career we want to see next? Blogger Barbie. Only, instead of the power suit, she wears yoga pants, an oversized T-shirt, Ugg slippers and a messy ponytail. But her laptop is definitely pink.
