Here She Is! Mattel Releases Photos of New Silkstone Barbie
Mattel has finally released promotional photos for the final Silkstone offering of 2012. She is indeed the yellow gowned lady whose sketch was floated around the doll boards about a month ago. She doesn’t have a name or price yet….hold on to your pocketbooks folks….I suspect she will be pricey. They are saying she will be available in the fall of 2012. This one is a complete no brainer for me. A redhead in yellow?! I die. Fall can’t get here soon enough!
**edit** Just heard from my dealer that her name is “Gala Gown” and price is $150.00. To preorder, feel free to visit Windy City Dolls http://www.windycitydolls.com/bfmcgalagown.htm

If you are a Barbie Fan Club Member, you can see more photos under their “sneak peak” folder in the forums.
I see some retailer’s are selling her for about $150.
She is To DIE For!!!!

Hi Rebecca, I, like Matty, am also seeing this doll priced at $150, going by the name “Atelier #4”. Awesome, Awesome.

Wow. She’s a have to have for me. If for no other reason — the dress. Beautiful. I’m not too sure about the ‘do’ on this gal. I’d love to see a closer-up look.
