Barbie’s Glam Makeover & Stylish Timeline

It’s only suiting that I would love a designer duo called ‘The Blonds’ seeing as I am, well, blonde. Looking into their designs makes me feel like I am meant to be one of their clients, too, with all of the glitz and glam they exude into their creations. When I think blonde, fabulous, and glamorous, I also think of Barbie. From the runway to the playroom, Barbie knows just how to keep her appearance alluring and eye-catching. Mattel tapped into The Blonds designers Phillipe and David Blond to create a new look for barbie, and this is the super-fabulous result: The Blonde Diamond Barbie.

The doll is inspired by the finale look from their “Legends” collection. Featuring a diamond-corseted mini-model complete with a satin-pink-lined faux-fur white coat and silver high heels, a design first showcased at Barbie’s Fall 2008 fashion show, then modeled by Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel at one of The Blonds’ fashion shows, this just might be the most glamorous and fabulous doll yet. “This collaboration is a childhood dream come true, Barbie played a huge role in our lives as children and still does,” The Blonds designers told Me too, guys; I’m still in love with Barbie and I can’t imagine ever giving away my dolls. “She is the culmination of everything that inspires us. We’re both avid Barbie collectors and she’s the ultimate client!” 

The doll is now available for pre-order for $125 on
