Madame du Barbie

One of my grail dolls, I recently acquired my first Bob Mackie doll, Madame du Barbie, in a trade. I absolutely adore her.

She's the tenth Bob Mackie doll in the original series, made in 1997. I received her NRFB, but--as you can see--she is no longer in her box. The box was pretty on the outside, but as my trading partner helpfully pointed out, it wasn't very pretty to look at inside. My dolls just don't seem happy in their boxes!

She's such a glamorous Marie Antoinette. So many sparkles and sequins, and hair high up to the heavens. See more photos of her and her lovely gown on Flickr.
