A rep for The Blonds released a statement today to the New York Daily News
“It is incorrect to label the doll ‘Drag Queen Barbie. She is the Blond Diamond Barbie,” “She is female. She is the same Barbie that has been a doctor, a teacher and an astronaut, and now she is glamorized in The Blonds creations” .
OK so the Barbie is all woman which we knew BUT her look is inspired by the creator who is a actual cross dresser (below). According to Mattel and The Blonds . she’s just plain old Blond Diamond Barbie, which will be available for purchase in December for $125.
“The Blond Diamond Barbie Collector doll celebrates the glamorous fashions created by the designing pair David and Phillipe Blond,” a rep for Mattel said. “This collector doll has a classic Barbie face sculpt with dramatic makeup and sweeping blond hair to top off a stunning silvery mini corset dress of countless sculpted faux gems and a full length faux fur.” The doll also comes styled with studded earrings, a crystal cuff and a pair of glittery pumps. “Barbie has always meant a lot to us. It was an honor to dress her in our signature corset dress. Now she’s the doll who has it all!” The Blonds.
But the burning questions remains… If it is not “Drag Barbie” then why does she look JUST LIKE HIM? When you look at the doll its almost like Phillpe made a doll size action figure of himself ;-).
The bottom line regardless of what Mattel releases they cant answer the previous articles question….WHY NO FULL FIGURE BARBIE?!
