The Queen & I: Meeting Elizabeth Taylor

By Chris Varaste

Barbie Collector’s new White Diamonds Elizabeth Taylor Silkstone® doll, dazzling in her white dress, reminds me of working with the actress during the summer of ‘86. I was a production coordinator for Liberty Weekend, a four-day celebration of the restoration and centenary of the Statue of Liberty.

Tea for You, and Barbie Too!

By Chris Varaste

I have a favorite childhood memory from my days at The English School of Vienna, where the British staff would, as a daily custom, serve afternoon tea in lieu of lunch. Different from high tea, afternoon tea consists of a light meal served outdoors, preferably in a garden setting. While developing an appreciation for this tasty meal break, I made another discovery — Barbie® doll also enjoys sipping tea in the afternoon!

Elizabeth Taylor: Actress, Businesswoman, Activist

She was a legend in her own time, and sparked a legacy that continues to affect the lives of millions. How do you capture the essence of Elizabeth Taylor – actress, businesswoman, activist – in creations like Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Doll and Elizabeth Taylor Violet Eyes Doll?

In honor of their release, the Elizabeth Taylor Trust shared their thoughts about Miss Taylor, the dolls, and her lasting cultural and humanitarian impact.

The Sun Sets on The Twilight Saga

By Matt Stevens

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.

By Tara Zucker

My heart skips a beat when I see him walking up to my door. I can’t control myself—I start to imagine various scenarios and all the joys that await. I conveniently forget any past failures, gripped with a certainty that this time everything will be perfect.

A Spectacularly un-Conventional Fashion Show!

By Chris Varaste

I just returned from this year’s Barbie® Convention held at the Hyatt Regency in Orange County, CA, and as is often the case, I can’t wait to go back next year! As far as guilty pleasures go, Barbie Conventions remind me of fabulous televised special events like the Olympics or Academy Awards (except, ha, we always want the Oscars to end…)!
