    Default Revamped Ken doll to win back Barbie's heart?

    EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Will a new look help Ken win Barbie back?

    Mattel, maker of the world's best-selling doll, is hoping shoppers, and not just Barbie, will fall in love with Ken's new look.

    Hollywood stylist Phillip Bloch helped orchestrate Ken's midlife makeover.

    "Ken has revamped his life -- mind, body and soul," said Bloch. "Everyone knows how difficult it is to change, especially when you've lived your life a certain way for more than four decades."

    Bloch has given Ken two new looks that he describes as edgier and more sophisticated.

    The first includes torn jeans, a leather jacket, vintage T-shirt and boots.

    The second look, described as Ken's "everyday" style, included board shorts, white T-shirt and sun-kissed hair.

    "Ken has gone through this transformation to show Barbie that he is a changed man," said Bloch. "He's more than arm candy. He's spent time exploring the world and himself, so his look reflects that time spent on his own."

    The makeover comes after Barbie and Ken split a few years ago.

    Will the new look bring Barbie and her long-time beau back together?

    Mattel is hinting a Valentine's Day reunion may be in the works.

    "Barbie is the most fashionable girl on the planet. So, of course, she appreciates the new look Ken is sporting," said Lauren Dougherty, a Mattel publicist. "But we'll have to stay tuned to see whether these two will get back together."

    The new Ken doll will be available in stores beginning March 1.
