Maybe it's because I wanted to be a fashion designer as a youth, but a lot of my favorite collectible Barbie dolls were special ones designed by top fashion houses, like this Givenchy Barbie® Doll, which retailed for $79.95. This one takes the concept of "the little black dress" and makes it an elegant, simple, and sophisticated number I wish I had the occasion to try. But I do hope that's faux fur, Barbie!
I hate to say it, but this washed-out picture of Water Lily™ Barbie® really doesn't do her justice. Inspired by Monet's "water lilies" painting, if you couldn't tell. I'm not normally a big fan of extra-feminine things like pink and/or flowers, but it works so well with the aqua and green! She retailed for $79 back in 1997, as part of the Artist Series.
