Lights dim, the orchestra swells and showgirls in ruffled dresses sashay across the stage!
You’re seated front row center at the Moulin Rouge, the preeminent Parisian nightclub, famous for its cabaret performers — none more spectacular than the cancan dancer. Moulin Rouge™ Barbie® doll, the star of the show, breaks into a high-energy dance with a breathtaking series of cartwheels and splits. The excitement reaches a fevered pitch when chorus girls line up alongside her for the show-stopping high-kick and the audience erupts with applause!
It’s the Moulin Rouge experience that has cemented its presence in Paris since the cabaret's first opening act in 1889. As romantic as the City of Lights itself, with a rich history that inspired contemporary nightclub entertainment, the Moulin Rouge is the quintessential French attraction. Nestled in the Montmartre District, the cabaret is marked by a red windmill, a welcome sign to visitors seeking the iconic dance hall.
Now, Barbie celebrates 120 years of the cancan in style with an official license by Moulin Rouge Paris™. Barbie doll wears a traditional French design with a touch of modernity from designer Robert Best. Ruffles line the bodice and make up the full skirt, flared at just the right angle to highlight her long dancer’s legs. In addition to the strappy red shoes, Barbie doll’s frilly look is accessorized with a satin neckband, coordinating armbands, and a peekaboo ruffled garter! Her upswept hair, adorned with a showy plume, reflects the Gibson Girl style that was immortalized in Toulouse-Lautrec’s paintings of cancan dancers at the famous club.
The stunning doll’s dramatic stage makeup includes smoky eye shadow and scarlet lips, clearly visible from the very last row of the Moulin Rouge theater… or up close when she arrives at your home—she’s just a click away at the online Barbie Collector store!
