2019 is not just the 60th anniversary of Barbie® doll's debut. This year, the 20th series of Barbie® Fashion Model Collection dolls hits the runway, too! The year kicks off in fabulous fashion with the BFMC® Proudly Pink™ Barbie® Doll.
Any time you reach a special anniversary year, it's the perfect time to look back at where you've been, and to look forward at a future filled with possibilities. The Barbie® Fashion Model Collection has played with that dichotomy for two 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? Fresh takes on haute couture you could see coming out of any real-world atelier or on display during any global Fashion Week extravaganza.
We could talk about the Proudly Pink™ Barbie® Doll's outfit – and we will! – but we HAVE to talk about her hair first. 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 of stylishly chic and perfectly playful. It's been a winning combination for Barbie® over the years, and Robert has taken beyond anything else he's done before for this collection.
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. A pale pink logo print purse dangles from her delicate shoulder on a silvery chain. The rhinestone Barbie® logo brooch serves as the topper to this daring look. It's self-referential and reverential at the same time, another inventive touch by Robert for this look.
The design also features a gorgeous vintage face sculpt, and the fashion is made for the posable Silkstone® body. A doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity are included, of course, but you'll have to open the specially designed package to get at them. Whether you do that, or you prefer your dolls never removed from the box, you'll fall in love with the first BFMC® doll for 2019. Get your Proudly Pink™ Barbie® Doll today!
