At 50, Claudia Schiffer is still an emblem of the fashion industry and Barbie wanted to celebrate with two new dolls inspired by one Balmain and one Versace look worn by the Supermodel. It is not the first time that Mattel collaborates with Claudia Schiffer. In 2017 the brand already launched a Schiffer-look-alike doll inspired by her iconic Versace gold metallic mesh dress worn on the pages of Vogue Italia.
The new Barbie “Claudia Schiffer” is available in two versions, one with the black Balmain dress, from the Spring / Summer 2016 collection, featuring an embroidered mesh top, maxi belt and perforated skirt (that the model wore in the brand’s campaign directed by Olivier Rousteing) and one with a light blue Versace dress, from the Fall / Winter 1994 collection that features a corset top and long semi-transparent pleated skirt.
In addition to the beautiful catwalk outfits, the two new Barbies also perfectly reproduce her beauty looks, wavy blonde hair and smokey eyes makeup included.
“Never too old to play with Barbie 😉 ” wrote Claudia Schiffer on Instagram.
