Robert Best on Tribute Barbie® Doll

High fashion couture, chic and stylish accessories, and a ready for the runway pout. What more could a doll ask for?

In 2000, designer Robert Best debuted the Barbie® Fashion Model Collection to rave reviews. And since then, he hasn’t missed a stylish beat. From sophisticated glamour girls in elegant evening gowns to chic and stylish socialites in the latest couture to career focused fashionistas devoted to working and living stylishly, this collection has always celebrated high-fashion fabulousness, with that beloved retro feel from Barbie's vintage era.

In honor of 10 years of fashion model fabulousness, Robert Best has once again outdone himself with Tribute Barbie® doll. Dressed to the nines in a signature powder blue fitted gown with rows of ruffles, opera length gloves, and “jewels” to die for, Barbie epitomizes the glamour and decadent detailing this collection has come to be known for.

One look at this gorgeous girl and you can’t help but wonder – do we see hints of fashion models past in the beautiful Tribute Barbie® doll? We’re thinking a little bit of the high fashion elegance of Delphine Barbie® doll, mixed with the sheer sophistication of The Soiree Barbie® doll.

Could we be on to something?

According to Robert, yes!

“I wanted this doll to embody the best and brightest of the entire collection,” Robert told us, adding, “I infused this doll with everything I love about the collection as a whole. So, for the avid collector, they could enjoy some of the history with those little kisses and nods that have been running themes throughout collection.”

What might some of those kisses and nods be?

First, Barbie’s pale blue gown.

“As you know, pale blue is a color I always love, and is a signature color of the collection. Plus, the beading on the gown is incredible. Very classic Barbie pink with gold and silver colored sequins. And of course, the face paint has just a hint of glitter. I really wanted to incorporate all the elements I love to celebrate while offering collectors a real Wow! factor.”

Tribute Barbie® doll looks absolutely exquisite from her classically styled updo to her powder blue pumps. What more could a fashion model want? And she’s now available in the online shop, so you can get YOUR fashion model fix, too!
