Barbie Tips Her Hat to Stephen Jones
Fashion’s ultimate GLAM girl, Barbie, got a new look just in time for the holidays, courtesy of Stephen Jones. In between curating friend and muse Anna Piaggi’s Hat-ology exhibit, the milliner found the time to create five full looks for the plastic beauty, British Vogue is reporting.
“Barbie is the most fabulous private client,” Jones told British Vogue. “She came into the salon for her Christmas morning hat and left with five glamorous outfits! Barbie and I have the same design vision; we love tradition, but have an eye for the future.”
Are we too old to request that this Barbie make her way under our Christmas tree? She can be purchased for $400 at Selfridges London Toy Shop starting November 15th. And while we’re at it, who do we have to speak to about purchasing a full-sized version of Barbie’s wardrobe? In addition to Jones’ custom looks she has from Azzedine Alaïa, Burberry, Commes de Garcons, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Coach.
Life in plastic… it’s fantastic, right?
