The reality-show sensation returns March 19th, 2012! If you haven’t watched Dancing With the Stars (DWTS), here’s what you need to know before the season 14 debut.
Celebrities are paired with professional dancers to perform routines from a variety of styles. The couples each earn a combined score from the show’s judges and voters across North America! Only couples with the highest scores get to stay in the competition, until one final couple wins it all.
The show is also known for its stunning costumes, and that’s where Barbie comes in. Tasked with imagining Barbie in the role of the professional dancer, Barbie® Collector’s own Linda Kyaw designed three exquisitely beautiful dolls inspired by the show.
To celebrate the new season, we asked Linda to share her favorite details about the dolls:
Dancing with the Stars Samba Barbie® Doll
“I love her bronzed skin, paired with the show-stopping brights of her costume! My favorite detail of all is the silvery & orange metallic trim that crosses her torso. That was a final last-minute touch that pulled it all together.”
Dancing with the Stars Waltz Barbie® Doll
“This is the one that's closest to signature Barbie in the collection. That's probably what I love most about this one – is that it's as much a true Barbie doll as it is a DWTS tribute.”
Dancing with the Stars Paso Doble Barbie® Doll
“This one might be my favorite from the bunch. That shiny red satin dress and her poseable hands – as if lifting the hem – makes me forget she's a doll. Honest!”
Catch the new season right from the start, March 19th at 8/7c on ABC. Though she won’t be on the show, we asked Linda which of the three dances – samba, waltz, or paso doble – that Linda would prefer to perform, if she were a contestant…
“I'm thinking paso doble, more because I'm drawn personally to the rich and vibrant culture of Spain,” Linda says. “You can see the history and pride of a country in that dance, and it's inspiring!”
