Commemorating Barbie® doll’s 40th anniversary.
Who, but Barbie®, could look even better on her 40th anniversary than on her first debut?
1959 meets 1999 as Barbie® doll dons a gown with black flock bodice shimmering with silvery glitter,
and nostalgically reminiscent of her original 1959 striped-pattern bathing suit.
Her slim silhouette gown of black organza spills to a delicate tulip hemline.
An illusion neckline of sheer black and daring dangly earrings offset her soft French twist and exquisitely charming face.
What makes Barbie so popular with collectors is her ability to accessorize down to the tiniest detail.
In this instance, she wears “diamond” drop earrings, sheer black pantyhose, black pumps,
an extravagant diamond choker and a diamond tiara placed in dramatically upswept hair.
Adding a dynamic touch to celebrate her 40th anniversary is a bountiful bouquet of 40 pink “roses” which she gracefully holds inher arms, that are covered with sheer black opera-length gloves.
That’s one rose for each year of her extraordinary success in inspiring generations of women to reach for the stars and pursue their best dreams.
There is also a tiny card that says “Happy 40th Anniversary“.
A miniature replica of the original 1959 doll and package are included.
With the inclusion of the “doll’s doll”, Barbie steps into the present with a wink at the past.
