Monique Lhuillier does Barbie
Celebrated designer Monique Lhuillier, who has recently become the dress designer of choice for celebrity weddings, is doing a special-edition wedding Barbie for Mattel. This puts Lhuillier among the ranks of other famous designers who have dressed the doll, including Bob Mackie, Cynthia Rowley, Byron Lars, Nolan Miller, Calvin Klein, Versace, Christian Dior and Vera Wang. The brunette Barbie's gown has an off-white bodice, sable-colored sash and a full skirt. She comes with faux diamond studs and diamond ring and even a doll-sized garter belt. Price: $120.
FAO Schwarz has a blond version of the doll, with a blue sash to match her blue eyes for $140, as well as a Caroline Herrera designed Barbie bride.
Too bad Barbie doesn't actually have any wedding plans in the near future.
