Divine Day & Night: BFMC® Barbie® The Best Look™ Gift Set!

By Allen Voivod

 

Barbie® The Best Look™ Gift Set is the penultimate entry in the Barbie® Fashion Model Collection – for 2020, and for the collection itself! This is the final year for the haute couture segment from Barbie® Signature, and with this set, Senior Director of Barbie® Design Robert Best is going back to the very beginnings of Barbie® for inspiration.

"I knew I wanted to include gift sets as premium offerings when we started to dream up what would eventually become the Barbie Fashion Model Collection," Robert says. "Connecting to the Barbie dolls of the past was intentional."

He's also connected to the beginning of the BFMC® as well, with a two-outfit set that comes with multiple accessories, reminiscent of the very first gift set released in the series. (Learn more and hear Robert's thoughts on gift sets old and new in an exclusive for Barbie® Signature members.)

The gift set features two indispensable classics: a smart suit for day wear and the perfect outfit for an evening dinner party. The stylish two-piece daytime suit includes a removable faux fur collar accented with a brooch. For the evening look, a black lace bodysuit is paired with a full tulle petticoat, trimmed with satin, under a lace skirt. Two sets of satin opera-length gloves, a tiered pearly necklace, and a satin clutch are finishing touches for either look. Stylish stiletto pumps are also interchangeable with each fashion.

"I always loved the original Barbie gift sets from the '60s that featured a doll with a lot of different clothes and accessories," Robert recalls. "They seemed like the perfect experience because everything you needed to play was all right there, and it was such compelling storytelling."

When you get Barbie® The Best Look™ Gift Set, you'll be able to set your own scene, thanks to the posable Silkstone® doll body and the included display stand. Barbie® Signature Platinum members will have the first opportunity to add this Gold Label® set to their collections, followed by Gold members, and then the general public. (Not a Barbie® Signature member? Join now!) Which fashion will you put on display? Or will you get two, so you can display both day and night at once? We can't wait to find out – get Barbie® The Best Look™ Gift Set in the online shop now!

Was it just now that you were able to order? I've been checking often and only have the "Notify" button. Just checked again now and still unable to order. 😞

I ordered on July 14th, 2020. Was showing back ordered until 07/20/2020. Still shows "IN PROGRESS". I have tried to call several times but get tired of holding after 45 minutes. I finally got through and was told they would have to transfer me to another number. Still holding after 53 minutes.....

Has the doll sold out? I am interested in ordering but while it states "in stock," I am not being given the option.

Same here. I received an automated email that it was back in stock. I was able to add one to my cart but when I went to check out, I got an "out of stock" error.

Didn’t get an  email that she would be available to members, I tried to order her on the 14th when I found out on Instagram that she was released BUT That did not work, So then tried to activate the Notify feature stupid me thinking she may be on back order and that didn’t work and then on the 22nd  it says “find at retail“, which currently means 409$ Canadian on eBay. People who only wanted her so they Can triple her price To line their pockets were able to buy her but long time members and 20 year devotees to the Silkstone line get screwed. Pardon my language but I am angry. After 2 years of lame articulated Dolls an interesting set Finally comes out and they screw it up for us devotees. I am not renewing with Barbie signature in 2021. Very disappointed.

I think something must have happened with the production of this doll.  Gold label dolls have a limit of 10,000 usually, I think.  So, this doll should still be available.  Somethings going on behind the scenes.  I was told by customer service that, "we do not expect this doll to be available again."  Although they said, "It is possible." , so check the website often.  Customer service was helpful.  So, she may be back and she may not.  I wish I had bought her asap.

Hello Everyone,

So, I was thinking about ordering this doll...but then I read the reviews; I was left completely confused. Most are negative reviews about the quality of garments and doll. Those who received the doll "free" as part of their membership seemed to have received a completely different quality. Not sure what to do here. I received the "Best in Black" and actually I can see why some complaint about some finishing details quality. Quality control differs? Different production line?
