Barbie for big girls.

Elizabeth Taylor Silkstone photos released!

I wrote about the Elizabeth Taylor celebrity Silkstone a couple of weeks ago and now we hear there will be not one but two Silkstone releases of Liz.  I was hoping for a “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” inspired set with the little slip and….I got my wish!!!  While the dress is not exactly a reproduction, it’s close enough and I will take it.  It will be available in a giftset called White Diamonds.  It will retail for around $150.00 and will be available in the fall.

The second Elizabeth Taylor offering is stunning!!  It features Ms. Taylor in a gorgeous black gown inspired , I believe, by the movie Suddenly, Last Summer.   It’s called “Violet Eyes” and will retail for around $130.00 .  It will be available in the fall.




Love them both!!

  1. Gorgeous!!! I of course, love the clothing and accessories a bit more than the dolls…but then, I’m an odd one. 🙂 Hugs.

    • Heeehee! Don’t you just love those little accessories. Sometimes they can totally outshine the doll and clothing. I totally get that 🙂

    After seeing the promos, I was curious to see your opinion! I adore the doll and was am slowly accepting the outfit choice! It is not radiant or glamorous as I had hoped for but it might do! I like that Barbie play around with outfits that Taylor did wear but added a few accessories to make it their own design! I probably will get the “white diamond” but the “violet eyes” are good too! I really honor The awareness of AIDS and Elizabeth’s contribution in the foundation but the red ribbon seems a bit “tacky” too me! It draws away from the outfit! Overall, I am excited!

    • I agree in that I honor and applaud the AIDS awareness symbol as she was such a vocal advocate for that cause. It looks like the red ribbon can be kept or removed depending on your aesthetic. Time will tell on that one. I am absolutely thrilled with both dolls that are coming out.

    • I know!!! Can’t wait to see these ladies too. I hope they will have the prototypes at Barbiecon in July. If so , I will be sure to share photos ( if I am allowed 🙂 )

    Love her and thanks for the photos. I hope you do get to see them at convention and can take photos. So wishing I could be there too…I so didn’t want to sit this one out…but it seems like I’m on a pattern of every other year…LOL I am all about the accessories. I like the White Diamonds dress and accessories and the Violet Eyes Doll. Wish we could pick and chose. Guess I’ll go for both!
