I am living for this Beyonce-inspired B’Day Tour opening number dress!
Here’s the scoop on the $125 collector’s edition Barbie hitting the scene, according to Mused Magazine:
“Although the term drag queen is not officially used to describe the new The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie Doll, the plastic figurine was created in part by New York-based fashion designer Phillipe Blond, who is a cross-dresser himself.
Mattel, the company that manufactures Barbie, commissioned the work to Phillipe and David Blond of the label The Blonds, who have expressed their adoration for the doll ever since their label was born in 2007.
Cathy Cline, vice president of marketing for Mattel’s girls’ brands, told The New York Times: ‘One of the great things about Barbie is that she continues to push the envelope. Barbie doesn’t worry about what other people think.'”
With all the progessions the LGBT community has made over the last decade … man, I am speechless! I love this doll. Too bad I don’t have $125 laying around though. I’ll have to add this to my wish list for Santa!
