With a career spanning over five decades, David Bowie was at the vanguard of contemporary culture as a musician, artist, and icon. Now, Barbie® Signature applauds his global and multigenerational impact with the Barbie® David Bowie Doll!
As a Gold Label™ doll, this will only be produced in limited quantities, and comes with a doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity. It's a definitive celebration of two pop culture icons, as Barbie® honors the pioneer of sound and vision, English singer, songwriter, and actor, whose dramatic musical transformations continue to influence and inspire.
Dressed as Bowie’s fantastic sci-fi alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, Barbie® wears the iconic metallic ‘space suit’ with red and blue stripes and flared shoulders, and Bowie’s signature cherry-red platform boots. Special details include bold makeup – featuring the famed astral sphere forehead icon – and a hairstyle inspired by Bowie’s fiery-red locks.
The doll will arrive (not from Mars, just from our warehouse!) in specially-designed packaging, displaying a collage of images from Bowie's early career. It's another respectful aspect of this tribute to a musical genius who redefined rock and roll. It also makes Barbie® David Bowie Doll the ultimate collector’s item for Bowie and Barbie® fans alike.
Bowie was, and continues to be, a unique presence in contemporary culture. Honor his extraordinary talent and undeniable influence by adding Barbie® David Bowie Doll to your collection today!
