Barbie’s new Star Power
Posted by helen on February 22, 2014
I have to admire Barbie’s enthusiasm for movie stars and the energy she puts on chasing them.
here I was told A New Barbie doll will be released later this year, Barbie Portraits Chinese Actress, Singer, Producer, Style Icon Fang BingBing
I have never watched any of her movies, neither did I hear her sing. my beloved Fashion commentators Tom & Lorenzo often “WERQ” her, that’s how she got my attention. I think she is truly a beauty. some of her fashions are pieces of art, like this one: http://tomandlorenzo.com/2012/05/cannes-werq-fan-bingbing-in-chris-bu-kewen/
it was reported that the Actress visited Mattel on Feb 26, 2013, Mattel designers drew inspirations from the fashions she wore and will present collectors a new doll in her likeness. The price is Chinese Yuan ¥888 (US$145)
I do not know if its just a rumor or she is an Asian Market Exclusive or she will be distributed in USA. but photos of the doll has been circling around on Weibo.com (China’s Twitter)
if you like the Empress of Golden blossom, you will like this one, too. her dress is very “golden”, with Dragon design, a symbol of Chinese Royalty.
I guess Mattel does not give up Chinese Market.
