I first heard about the Twilight novels from a close friend’s daughter, and I must say, her giddy enthusiasm was contagious! Based on her glowing review and curious about this growing phenomenon, I picked up Twilight at an airport bookstore and sank my teeth (sorry) into the story during my cross-country flight. By the time I landed, I was hooked. Like so many fans, I was in the Twilight zone.
There is a type of beauty that once viewed cannot be forgotten. It’s so striking that it refuses to fade from memory, but appears again and again, unbidden, in dreams and in unexpected moments. Such is the vision of Haunted Beauty Ghost™ Barbie® Doll from Bill Greening, and she is beyond the power of any mortal to resist.
Ready? OKAY!! Clap your hands and give a cheer — the peppiest dolls of the year are here! We’re celebrating the debut of four new University-themed Barbie Dolls, a series that pays tribute to some of the most celebrated colleges across the U.S.
Fashion and science fiction capture my imagination because of their projections of the future. The fashion world depends on it, with designers displaying tomorrow’s looks on runways before the designs are mass-produced. Likewise, science fiction offers a peek at fantastical worlds of the future, and tantalizing marketing campaigns for sci-fi movies often get me hooked — especially to check out the fashions!
The Spring 2012 Barbie® Collector line included a breath of fresh air with the newly minted Dolls of the World® Collection. China and Ireland were represented in nods to popular entries in the remarkable 30-year history of the collection. Australia made a long-awaited return, and Argentina was represented for the first time.
As the dolls in the 2012 Barbie Fashion Model Collection continue to be revealed throughout the year, one thing has become very clear. Principal designer Robert Best is making a significant fashion statement that goes beyond simply dressing the world’s most remarkable doll!
