The Blonds (Phillipe and David,) an extremely fierce NYC design team and couple who design sparkly, studded dresses for Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, and Beyonce, have teamed up with Mattel for the most fabulous Barbie ever.
Her face and dress are inspired by Phillipe Blond, who dresses in drag, making this the first ever drag queen Barbie!
This may raise some controversy, but guess what? Barbie’s like the Honey Badger, she doesn’t care what anyone thinks!
Mattel’s Vice President of marketing Cathy Cline told the NY Times: “One of the great things about Barbie is that she continues to push the envelope. Barbie doesn’t worry about what other people think.”
Here’s a design The Blond did for Britney:
Right now you can only get designs from The Blonds by being a super special private customer like Katy Perry. Hopefully they’ll develop a line to sell in stores so people can enjoy the fabulousness even if they aren’t Rihanna. Spread the hotness.
The Blonds Blond Diamond sells for $125, and you can pre-order it here for a December delivery.
