Remember that song: “I’m a Barbie girl, in a Barbie world. Life in plastic; it’s fantastic!”
Well, those lyrics are about to get real. In Mattel’s latest collaboration between Barbie, the ultimate style icon, and a high-end designer, not only will our favorite doll be dressed to the nines, but her clothing – and accessories! – will be produced for human fashion plates, too. OK, go ahead and crank the Aqua.
The Hervé Léger by Max Azria Barbie doll, priced at $150, is now available for pre-order, and is expected to be available Oct. 15. Clad in a sexy red bandage dress (made at the same factory that constructs the label’s designer duds), the doll also comes with a removable black harness belt, black gladiator boots and a black and gold clutch.
And, because all true fashionistas need a change of clothes, a second full look –a black and white jacquard dress, open-toe booties and studded black clutch – also are included.
But here’s the best part: The designs will be available for living fashion dolls, too, as part of the Hervé Léger by Max Azria collection.
Of course, while matching Barbie may be a dream come true for many of us, being plastic still has its privileges. As the doll tells Elle magazine in an “exclusive interview,” she won’t need Spanx to rock her bandage dress – it fits her perfect body perfectly, naturally.
That Ken sure is a lucky guy.
Look for the Barbie next month to arrive in Hervé Léger boutiques, select Neiman Marcus stores, and on BarbieCollector.com.
