Mattel & Entertainment Earth Debut New David Bowie Barbie

The artist David Bowie solidified a legacy not just in the realm of music but in art, fashion, acting, and even Fandom. Bowie transcended genre and gender all the while advocating for a harmonious and peaceful world.

This year is the 50th anniversary of David Bowie’s album, Hunky Dory. To honor the legend, Mattel‘s Gold Label Collection is releasing a new David Bowie Barbie.

This doll wears an authentic replica of the bespoke powder-blue suit Bowie wore in the “Life on Mars?” music video, a foil-printed pin-stripe shirt, statement tie, and platform shoes. The look is complete with bold blue eyeshadow and a hairstyle inspired by Bowie’s ‘70s glam era.

The special edition Barbie is currently available for pre-order on Entertainment Earth.  The doll retails for $49.99 and there is a limit of 2 per client.  The Barbie will officially go on sale sometime in July.
