Yes, The Blonds have collaborated with Mattel on a Drag Queen Barbie which is getting a lot of attention from the press for the sheer controversy of it all, but there’s another beautiful doll on the market outfitted by wunderkind fashion designer, Stephen Burrows.
Stephen Burrows is a legend in the fashion world, as the first designer of color to enjoy international acclaim. His Barbie was inspired by a retro showgirl, which translates in her extravagant look: a sequined, netted bodysuit, glimmering rhinestone-encrusted headpiece and halo of dazzling white feathers.
Her deep brown skin is accented by a beautiful purple lip and hair is pulled back into a sophisticated bun. The limited-edition Stephen Burrows Pazette Barbie doll is earmarked for women who collect the famous doll and available for $100. There is a limit of 5 dolls per order.
