The 2013 Barbie® Fashion Model Collection sends another amazing doll down the runway! Mermaid Gown Barbie® Doll sends out an irresistible siren call to anyone who loves couture.
It is said the goddess Atargatis transformed into the first mermaid after the accidental death of her human lover. Grieving, she cast herself into a lake, intending to take the form of a fish. However, her incredible beauty could not be hidden, and she remained half woman, half sea creature.
Many a sailor has been lured away from his ship trying to catch a mere glimpse of a magical mermaid. Although the National Ocean Service says no evidence has ever been found to prove the existence of these captivating creatures, they have long been celebrated in story and song.
Now, inspired by such beauty, the 2013 Barbie® Fashion Model Collection welcomes the Mermaid Gown Barbie® Doll. She joins Luncheon Ensemble Barbie® Doll and Cocktail Dress Barbie® Doll in this popular collection that pays tribute to the art of couture fashion and the concept of the European fashion house, or “atelier.”
This Silkstone® doll captures the essence of the goddess herself. She wears a stunning gown created by Robert Best (one of our own gods of design). At once elegant and over-the-top glamorous, her strapless pale pink gown is embellished with iridescent and clear sequins, while a classic mermaid silhouette rises out of waves of ruffles that swirl around the hem. A frothy tulle stole gently caresses her shoulders and cascades around her, and white gloves complete her evening ensemble.
The embodiment of feminine charm and the height of sophisticated fashion, this truly magnificent doll is a breathtaking addition to the 2013 Barbie® Fashion Model Collection. Visit the online shop to see more photos and to add the Mermaid Gown Barbie® Doll to your collection today!
