Out of a Dream — the Grace Kelly Bride Doll!

Celebrated actress Grace Kelly was already an international sensation prior to her engagement to Rainier III, Prince of Monaco—but it was their whirlwind courtship that became the stuff of legend! Dashing prince, stunning movie star and a fortuitous meeting at the Cannes Film Festival riveted fans, enchanted by their love-at-first-sight romance. By the time America’s platinum treasure was ready to say, “I do,” interest in her gown had reached a fever pitch. Constructed by famed Hollywood costume designer Helen Rose, the gown was a gift from MGM to their brightest star.

Sophisticated and demure, the princess bride’s wedding ensemble is now the inspiration for the breathtaking Grace Kelly Bride Doll, the second offering from the Grace Kelly Silkstone® Collection. A perfect fashion match for fans of both Grace Kelly and Barbie® doll, the new collection honors classic American style with a series of beautiful dolls sculpted in Grace Kelly’s flawless image. Since both Barbie® and Grace Kelly are consummate symbols of timeless elegance, this collection is a superb tribute to their enduring influence on modern fashion. The caliber of fashion designer Robert Best’s work on the series also delivers what fans expect from the BFMC line: extraordinary style, effortless glamour and brilliant attention to detail!

The Grace Kelly Bride Doll continues the tradition with a sumptuous gown inspired by the unforgettable original that Kelly wore in 1956. A perfect blend of haute couture and make-believe, the high-waist, full-skirted silhouette is framed by a flowing sheer veil and a magnificent train made of lace. The majestic gown is displayed on an equally regal doll that captures Grace Kelly’s renowned poise and confidence. Sky-blue eyes, alabaster skin and platinum hair in a dramatic upsweep recall the luminous star as she appeared at what was heralded “The Wedding of the Century!”

Now you can bring home the glamour and romance of that special day with your own Grace Kelly Bride Doll — just a click away at the Barbie® Collector online store!
