I have been to Stephen Burrows’ past two fashion shows. I also collected Barbie dolls with my mom. Now the two have come together to create the Stephen Burrows Pazette Barbie Doll for Barbie’s Collector Doll series. This beautiful brown Barbie wears a sheer silver vest and a nude mesh bodysuit adorned with silver glitter, rhinestones, and sequins. Did I mention the silver platform shoes? The doll retails for $100.00 and is available for purchase at BarbieCollector.com. I’m so excited I might have to add this one to my collection.
From Refinery 29:
Last year around this time, Vogue Italia impressed us on several levels with its “Black Issue, an edition of the vaunted mag featuring only beauties of African decent like Liya Kebede, Jourdan Dunn, and, of course, Naomi Campbell. As forceful and gorgeous a statement as that was, it might have to take a backseat to a new supplement stuffed into the latest issue of Italian Vogue—a mini-magazine that replicates the “Black Issue” with Barbies!!! Editrix Franca Sozzani has topped herself again. We mean, it would have been enough if it were just an issue showcasing Babs on the 50th anniversary of her creation, no matter the color of the dolls in question. But posing the “So In Style” models, which display more natural-looking black features, in pools, curled seductively on kinky couches, and flirty lingerie? Brava Signora Sozzani!
