Barbie for big girls.

AA Ball Gown Silkstone-First Look

Okay Mattel…I get it…you want to save the first look of this beauty for the Barbie Convention goers.   But, if you are going to do this, why ship the dolls off to Asia for retail BEFORE convention??!!  I’m left scratching my head and asking myself, “ And I spent how much on a BFC membership so I could get the first look at product?”  {grumble, grumble, grumble}.  I am assuming that the lucky dogs going to convention in New Orleans will get to see this fabulous lady up close and personal.  I am assuming she will be displayed in the sales room just like Gala Gown was last year.  Make sure you take some stellar photos attendees.  Just a reminder, I won’t be at convention this year but will point people to some Flickr accounts that will be covering the festivities as we get closer to the event.

Here is the first look!

It looks like someone has pirated the video shown at the Italian Doll Convention and added their own music.  You can find it by searching for “Barbie Fashion Model Collection” but I wont post the link here because it’s not authorized through Mattel and frankly…its PIRATED so not my thing.

Can’t wait for this beauty to join my collection!

  3. Hello!
    I love this doll!!! I want her in my collection. As you say, what Mattel has done is wrong. And the video is a lack of respect and of course, I don’t agree with these practices.
    Sorry to read that you won’t be at convention 😦

    She is so lovely. Curses, another Silkie I am going to have to add to my collection (and I still blame you, lol). xoxo

    • LOL! I have no regrets as I believe you will have none when you see this Silkie in person. I think she is just perfection.
