Introducing 'Drag Queen' Barbie: Cross-Dressing Fashionista
Mattel models its latest Barbie doll on cross-dressing designer from fashion label The Blonds.
Barbie has served as a female role model for years, donning everything from a nurse's uniform to an Olympic athlete's tracksuit and Presidential power suit.
Now, however, the famous plastic doll is aiming to inspire male fans through the first 'drag queen' Barbie.
Although the term drag queen is not officially used to describe the new The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie Doll, the plastic figurine was created in part by New York-based fashion designer Phillipe Blond, who is a cross-dresser himself.
The doll, who really should have been modeled with the male Ken doll, features a side-swept hair style and an extremely short bejeweled mini corset dress that is laced up at the back.
She pairs the look with flashy accessories also' a chunky silver cuff, a sparkling cocktail ring and silver metallic pumps that feature a lipstick pink sole.
Barbie has also been given eyelash extensions, a must for any drag queen.A full-length faux fox fur coat completes the dramatic look.
