Barbie: Fine Art Dolls

Art and Fashion- nothing new. But art and barbie fashion, that is quite new:
At this year's toy fair three new Barbies by Mattel were introduced. These pay homage to some of the world's most famous artists. The dolls clothing, make up, hair styles and jewelry are inspired by Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, Van Gogh's Starry Night and Klimt's portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer. 14th century master Leonardo Da Vinci, impressionist Vincent Van Gogh and art nouveau painter Gustav Klimt have been immortalized in a whole new way!

"See, the poor dream all their lives of getting enough to eat and looking like the rich.
And what do the rich dream of?

Losing weight and looking like the poor."
