Mattel is finally going to do a Grace Kelly Barbie!!!
Grace Kelly has always been a favorite of mine. To me, her beauty was always the epitome of chic and style. The V&A in London had an exhibit about her last year and since we have friends there, I wanted desperately to travel to London so I could see the exhibit in person. Alas….the friends ended up moving back to the U.S. and that idea was dropped. This lovely friend however had one of the exhibit books from the V&A sent to me as a gift and I LOVE it. So, it can be no surprise that when I found out Mattel was doing a Grace Kelly Barbie I squealed with delight. The word was out a little while ago but no pictures were available so speculation ran rampant as to what she would be wearing. My hope was that she would be in one of the gowns she wore in To Catch A Thief. When the pictures were finally released, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. She is in the beautiful blue chiffon gown designed by Edith Head from To Catch A Thief. Gorgeous!
She should be available in July at Barbie dealers and is priced at $39.99 She was designed by Robert Best. This one is a definite must for me.
