Farrah Fawcett Immortalized as a Barbie Doll

Posted on

She dazzled the world with her girl-next-door charm and feathered blonde hair, and now, Farrah Fawcett is receiving a lasting tribute in the form of a commemorative Barbie doll. The Farrah Fawcett Black Label Barbie Collection doll depicts the late actress wearing her red swimsuit and gold necklace, mimicking that iconic poster, which sold more than 12 million copies. For Mattel, creating a figure in honor of Fawcett was a no-brainer. “Barbie Collector always partners with culturally relevant and fashionable icons,” a Mattel spokesperson tells PEOPLE. “Farrah was a perfect fit as she impacted a generation of fashionable women with her signature style.” Doll designer Bill Greening agrees. “Farrah is a fashion icon,” he tells PEOPLE. “She made such a lasting impression on so many with her style, signature hair and smile.” As for how he created such a perfect replica of the star, Greening says he worked very closely with the Farrah Fawcett Foundation and the actress’s best friend, Alana Stewart, throughout the design process. “I spent countless hours with our hair, face and sculpting teams to ensure that we accurately captured Farrah’s look,” he shares. “I think we have made a fitting tribute to a legendary star.” The doll can be purchased for $34.95 online at barbiecollector.com.
