Mattel Commissions ‘Drag Queen’ Barbie
Ken's sexual orientation and faux relationship with Barbie has previously-been exposed by photographer Dina Goldstein.
Taking a step further, Mattel has now commissioned the first ‘Drag Queen Barbie’.
Designed by NYC’s design house The Blonds (David Blond and Philippe Blond), the gender-bending doll called ‘The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie Doll’ looks no different from a regular Barbie doll—but takes after cross-dresser Phillipe Blond of the design duo.
The ‘Drag Queen Barbie’ is dressed to the nines, with a bejewelled mini corset dress covered in faux gems, a floor-sweeping faux fox fur coat and glittery pump—everything from her eyelashes to her nail polish is also ‘made up’.
The doll retails exclusively online at US$125, and will be out in December.
