Believing in oneself isn't always easy, especially when it seems like the whole world is against you, but Barbie and her fashion-designing aunt Millicent are both women with a strong sense of self and a propensity for hard work. When Barbie gets fired from the film set for expressing her artistic opinion and then Ken dumps her by phone, she spontaneously decides to go visit her aunt at her design house in Paris. Unbeknownst to Barbie, her aunt is closing up shop thanks to a new designer in town who's been stealing her designs. The two commiserate about giving up professions they love and begin to search for new hobbies until Millicent's coworker, budding designer Alice, changes everything with an amazing dress design and a legend about magical "flairies"--creatures who add sparkle and flare to the work of inspired designers around the world. Suddenly, Barbie, Millicent, and Alice find themselves in a race to design a whole new line of clothing in order to save Millicent's shop and the very existence of the magical flairies. Meanwhile, Ken is chasing Barbie across the world in an effort to make one grand romantic gesture that will finally show Barbie how he really feels about her. This brightly animated film is full of magic, extreme personalities, and an important message about believing in oneself and staying true to one's passion. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

1.0 out of 5 stars Contrary to the title, this is NO fairytale September 23, 2010
Format:DVD
Oh, to go back to the days when Barbie movies were full of imagination, creativity, princesses, dreams come true and REAL fairytales. This is no fairytale. It's a pathetic excuse for a kid's movie that is trying to be hip and modern and introducing little girls to the world of twitter, Juicy Couture and boyfriend breakups. "A Fashion Fairytale" is anything but. The animation was lame, the dialogue was too filled with "hip" phrases and "teen terms" to be good, and the characters leave much to be desired. And the clothes are immodest, over-glitterized pink party outfits that no one in the real world would wear. The themes have more sexual content than a Barbie movie has ever had, and I'm truly sorry I bought this sorry excuse for a movie. Even older viewers and Barbie lovers can't enjoy it, because the bar has been set. Listen up, Mattel!
This movie is nothing but an encouragement to have the latest fashions, the top designs, the coolest new cell phones, the hottest boyfriends, and be uber popular at the same time. Please! Children don't need sexy models and lecherous dogs to look up to. Barbie used to stand for something more. Her standards used to be higher. Now she's too busy shopping for even MORE tight, low-cut, haute clothes. And while she's at it, she COULD use another micro miniskirt, couldn't she? The only decent outfit this chick wears is when she's filming for "the Princess and the Pea." And she gets fired from that!
I want to go back to the days when I saw a barbie movie and bought it knowing it was going to be wholesome, whimsical, sweet, and creative. They got it so right back then-this is madness.

2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid this one! September 19, 2010
Format:DVD
The Barbie movies I've seen up to now have been, although cheap looking and with terrible animation, decent entertainment with some nice messages about girl power. All I can say with this one is: what happened? I've given the movie two stars only because my 5 year old really enjoyed it...but honestly, I would not recommend it to any of my friends. To begin with - the start of the movie is confusing and very unsettling for young viewers. It starts with Barbie as the princess in the Princess and the Pea, getting menaced by the prince's mother...but then the scene shifts to reveal that it is a movie set, and Barbie is an actress. Some scary Zombie men in pea costumes are introduced (making my 3 year old very anxious), Barbie disagrees with the director and is ridiculed for her ideas and then fired for speaking up, she finds herself humiliated online in a gossip blog, and her boyfriend Ken breaks up with her over the phone. This is in the first 15 minutes! Barbie then decides to go to Paris to visit her aunt, a fashion designer. The negative themes continue from there - upon arrival she meets some nasty fashion designer rivals, and learns her aunt's business has failed. Of course, this being a Barbie movie, Barbie helps to turn things around, but even then, it's magical (tarted up) "flairies" (magic fashion fairies-- huh?-- totally out of place in this movie) that get the credit for making the designs truly special. How do the flairies do it? By adding a boatload of glitter, of course!

I find it hard to find a female character to get behind in this movie.

1.0 out of 5 stars Highly Disappointing September 16, 2010
By SMFMOM
Format:DVD
This is the worst Barbie movie ever! I have bought all the movies for my now 4 year old daughter. We are big Barbie Fans and have enjoyed the past movies. However,this one is just so bad in so many ways. The content is very adult and not meant for young children. It deals with adult issues with heavy burdens. Ex: Getting fired, breakups, Closing business, hateful people who want nothing but to see you suffer and get hurt.
It all starts off very badly from the beginning scene where Barbie is filming the classic 'The Princess and the Pea' and it turns into a horror movie, per this very obnoxious, hateful yelling director. He fires Barbie in the worst way possible. Then she gets hate mail on her computer as well as her boyfriend Ken dumping her over the phone. Yeah, but don't hold your breath yet. It gets even worse as the story progresses.
I could not even watch it through the first 20 mins. The characters are so unintelligent. Theresa is just so dumb. Who says stuff like she does anyway? Aliens... Really? Come on even my 4 year old is brighter than her. The Dippy Aunt Millicent is just too unbelievable trying to find herself at her age. The Catty and unethical Jaquline is something I hope my daughter never tries to imitate as well as Delphine, a mindless twit who lets Jaquline boss her around disrespectfully and control her every move. Even the pets act up in this one with meaness, cattiness and just plain hateful behavior. The kid on the plane with Ken who is just over the top bad is just unappealing in so many ways. I found it difficult to watch this movie and felt embarrassed by the fictional characters behaving so badly. Stealing, lying, cheating and disrespect are not things I want to instill in my child. Do yourself a favor and skip this one if you are a Barbie fan and enjoyed the ones in the past. I wish I had!

Newest Barbie movies
The only thing we can do is complain and refuse to buy the newer movies, sadly. If we show that these new modern movies aren't selling, they might stop making them.

By the way, have you seen that petition to bring Kelly and the fairytales back?
