David Bowie Has a Brand New Barbie Doll
In honor of the 50th anniversary of David Bowie’s ”Hunky Dory” album.
The new doll is the latest instalment of the existing Barbie Signature Collection, which includes the first David Bowie doll to be released by Barbie three years ago. Recreating Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust alter-ego, the doll was complete with the signature space suit and makeup.
Continuing Bowie’s legacy, the new iteration offers an authentic replica of the singer’s distinctive powder-blue suit from his “Life on Mars?” music video. Striving to capture Bowie’s unique essence, the doll incorporates key details like his foil-printed pin-stripe shirt, statement printed tie and platform shoes. Drawing inspiration from his eclectic makeup looks, the doll boasts vivid blue eyeshadow and a hairstyle inspired by Bowie’s ’70s glam era, complete with pink and blue nails.
The David Bowie Barbie Doll 2 is now available for purchase from Mattel’s website alongside select retailers.
