Last year Mattel and Bill Greening helped collectors celebrate Halloween with the direct exclusive Haunted Beauty Ghost™ Barbie® Doll.

This year, Mattel and Mr. Greening serve up another helping of gorgeous gothic splendor with Haunted Beauty Vampire™ Barbie® Doll.  She looks to be all decked out in a very close representation of an Alexander McQueen cloak over a deliciously gothic gown.  If I were into vampire or gothic design dolls, I would be all over this one.  While I may not be in the market to purchase this one, I can certainly admire the artistry of her design.  Another win for you Mr. Greening.

Barbie Models Designer Clutches

I am always on the lookout for Barbie photos being used in the fashion world.  It came as a complete surprise to run across these photos while researching another project so of course I had to share them here.  Did I miss these??  My apologies if everyone has already seen the photos.

Apparently Interview Magazine did a piece on spring designer clutch purses back in April and Ms. Barbie modeled the cream of the crop for Spring of 2012.
