Barbie is always ready for a party, and thanks to the latest collab with fashion designer Christian Siriano, she’s upping her glam game and hitting the red carpet.
31-year-old Siriano, who won season four of Project Runway, has created a one-off collection in partnership with Mattel that showcases the toy company’s more diverse doll body shapes.
“Barbie is a fashion icon—she’s been dressed by a multitude of designers over the years who have used her as a canvas to reflect beauty of the moment,” Sejal Shah Miller, VP Global Marketing of Barbie said in a statement.
Four of the doll’s gowns were worn by celebs like Sarah Hyland and Solange IRL, and the fifth outfit (the ice-blue one) took inspiration from Siriano’s Resort 2018 collection. Frankly, all of the miniature fashions are awesome.
“Barbie has always been a huge inspiration to me and I’m honored to be teaming up with this iconic brand,” Siriano said. “It’s especially exciting to be designing an array of inclusive and diverse doll looks that can allow girls to see themselves better represented when they play. It was incredible to recreate iconic red carpet moments and dress my latest muse, Barbie, in a new look from my Resort 2018 collection.”
