A Touch of Spring: Classic Cocktail Dress Barbie® Doll

Classic Cocktail Dress Barbie® Doll heralds the spring season with refreshing sophistication and style. Wearing a unique take on timeless couture, she is poised to make an unforgettable impression at garden parties, receptions, and elegant cocktail-hour events!

“She’s a welcome addition that continues and adds to themes and styles that run throughout the Barbie® Fashion Model Collection,” says designer Robert Best. “I’m always thinking about how to reinvent things but remain true to an established aesthetic, and I think she delivers on both counts.”

While designing the doll, Best was inspired to include aspects of vintage-looking glamour — but with a few twists. “I wanted to combine elements that feel classic, such as embroidery and a full-skirted silhouette, with unexpected modern touches.”

That hint of surprise can be seen in his whimsical update of a traditional design. “At first glance, it’s a simple cocktail dress, but in reality it’s two pieces — a strapless dress with embroidery on the skirt and then a sleeveless embroidered shell on top.”

On both pieces, a gorgeous garden of pastel flowers blooms across the ivory organza, with delicately woven details and faux-pearl embellishments. The black-satin headband and waist sash with bow offer bold accents, while the strappy sandals, drop earrings, and playful updo hairstyle lend a fun, youthful vibe.

Perfectly complementing her springtime style, Barbie® doll’s graceful features and makeup are as soft and sweet as her enchanting ensemble. Plus, she features the new articulated Silkstone® body, which allows for endless posing and display possibilities.

Best is understandably proud of Classic Cocktail Dress Barbie® Doll, the latest addition to the BFMC® New Classics Collection, and hopes collectors will be equally pleased. “I like to think they will love everything about the doll. The truth is, collecting is very personal, and I truly believe there is something for everyone. Plus, she is a personal favorite — but then I say that about every doll I design!”

Sure to be your new favorite as well, Classic Cocktail Dress Barbie® Doll is available now, just a click away at our online shop!
