Just add the medibuntu sources to apt repos followed by added the GPG
key. The steps to do are there:

Then check for updates (or so 'sudo aptitude update') and install skype
from Synaptics or just do 'sudo aptitude  install skype'.

I have done this on a amd64 bit machine. Skype ver
gets installed and it is amd64 architecture:
~$ apt-cache show skype | grep Archi
Architecture: amd64
