I have covered the Louise Gray collaboration with Barbie that showcased during London Fashion Week previously on my blog, but what I haven’t shared with you is the amazing one-of-a-kind Louise Gray punk Barbie doll that was specially created after the show.
Styled like a model from the show, Barbie is wearing one of the print dresses featuring her logo from the SS13 collection, doll-sized Tatty Devine for Louise Gray earrings and even her shoes are designer as they are a replicate of the Robert Clergerie x Louise Gray shoes.
The styling doesn’t stop there, my favourite thing about the Louise Gray Punk Barbie has to be her hair and make-up, which is a complete replicate from the show. Barbie is rocking the same backcombed hair that Sam McKnight created and she is working a very stiking make-up look featuring those Basquiat-inspired crown eyebrowns, which I absolutely adore.
Talking about her mini version, Louise Gray said:
“It was fun to replicate a runway look in Barbie size. I wanted her to have everything from the catwalk including the hair and makeup as well as all the detailing of the dress for a full look.”
As much as I love punk Barbie I am sad at the same time and that is because this plastic bombshell isn’t going to be available to buy – I would have loved to place Louise Gray Barbie next to my Christian Dior, Christian Louboutin and Kate Spade Barbie dolls.
What do you think doll lovers – would you love the Louise Gray Barbie in your collection?
