The Gala’s Best™ Barbie® Doll is a Platinum Label® Doll that will retail for $175 in the online shop. On 8/10 Barbie® Signature Platinum and Gold Status members will have first access to add her to their collections, followed and then the general public on 8/12. At launch, there will be a limit of one (1) doll per person. (This limit is subject to change at a later date.) Celebrate 20 years of the Barbie® Fashion Model Collection with us, and this capstone doll from the designer for whom Barbie® doll has been a muse for decades.
From the advent of the collection in 2000, the BFMC® has always embodied the glamour, the sophistication, the timeless elegance of fashion. Often featuring must-have items for the well-dressed woman's wardrobe, this haute couture series has long focused on bringing contemporary twists on classic designs.
In the case of The Gala’s Best™ Barbie® Doll , Senior Director of Barbie® Design Robert Best completes the collection at the top of his game, giving us Barbie® in a Dresden blue gown with a strapless corset bodice, full layered tulle skirt, and dainty pink organza flowers accents. A matching blue organza petticoat with taffeta ruffled trim billows beneath the gown, ensuring that all eyes will be on Barbie® the moment she walks in the room.
Hair, makeup, and accessories have always been just as important to the presentation of a Barbie® Fashion Model Collection doll, and Robert and the team collaborating with him for this swan song creation rose to the occasion. Her dramatic up-do hairstyle frames her face and highlights her golden, pearl-drop earrings. Long, elegant white gloves complete a breathtaking look that is sure to be captured in the minds of BFMC® fans for years to come. She’s a fitting finale – get her in the online shop as quickly as you can!
