Barbie is pretty in pink! 2019 Proudly Pink Silkstone Barbie, a doll in the Barbie® Fashion Model Collection, celebrates the 60th anniversary of Barbie's birthday. I love her gorgeous vintage face sculpt!
Any time you reach a special anniversary year, it's the perfect time to look back at where you've been, and look forward to a future filled with possibilities. The Barbie® Fashion Model Collection has played with that dichotomy for decades, with Principal Designer Robert Best drawing on designs and styles that have stood the test of time and adding his own contemporary elements. The result? A fresh takes on haute couture that you can imagine being created by a real-world atelier or on the cat walk during Fashion Week. Can we talk about Barbie's fab pony?! She's bolder than ever in her signature color, taking the idea of "head-to-toe" to a new level. Her bubblegum pink up-do is the ultimate mix stylishly chic and perfectly playful. Okay, now let's talk about her outfit! She's wearing a hot pink faille top and a logo print skirt, with pink gloves and pink stretch stiletto boots (yes, please!). A pale pink logo print purse on a silvery chain complements her rhinestone Barbie® logo brooch. It's self-referential and reverential at the same time, another inventive touch by Robert for this look.
