As the dolls in the 2012 Barbie Fashion Model Collection continue to be revealed throughout the year, one thing has become very clear. Principal designer Robert Best is making a significant fashion statement that goes beyond simply dressing the world’s most remarkable doll!By using the concept of the atelier and applying it to the world of Barbie® Collector, Robert has created a deeper connection to the masters of high-fashion design. He’s also re-connected Barbie to her couture roots, and the well-dressed women of high society who served as the muses for talented designers throughout Europe.
Shot through the lens of more than a century of haute couture history, Robert has brought the evolving vision of a woman of elegance into the 21st century! Walking Suit Barbie®, Afternoon Suit Barbie®, and Party Dress Barbie® each exemplify this aesthetic, a tranche de vie (“slice of life”) for a woman of taste.
Now comes Evening Gown Barbie®, extending the wardrobe into the sunset hours. Barbie’s ultra flirty and feminine ensemble begins with an embroidered white top, embellished with white beads, clear iridescent sequins, and silk ribbon flowers. A pink satin bow accents the cinch-waist, with a sheer white overskirt adding a touch of subtlety to the pink satin flared skirt.
No outfit was ever complete without alluring accouterments, and the attention to detail shines here with Barbie’s pink opera gloves, cross strap shoes, and silvery rhinestone floral earrings with faux pearl drop. The swept-up do accentuates the earrings and her graceful neck, while making a stylistic statement all its own.
Designed for the Silkstone® Barbie® doll body and limited to five (5) dolls per order, Evening Gown Barbie is a lovingly crafted, stunningly executed addition to the 2012 Barbie Fashion Model Collection, the 13-year history of the BFMC®, and the long line of designers whose passion expressed themselves in the creative hothouse known as the atelier.
