Barbie Lust: New Hope Diamond Collector Barbie

Over the past few years, I’ve been slowing amassing a Barbie collection that I’m immoderately obsessed with — and for that part of my crazy self is super excited that Mattel has launched a limited-edition Barbie inspired by the Hope Diamond, a 45.52 carat diamond housed in the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.

Clearly, this doll is destined to be my newest acquisition – the Hope Diamond Barbie wears a miniature version of the deep-blue diamond around her neck.  (The closest I’ll ever get to the real thing, obviously.)

Hope Diamond Barbie is donning a gorgeous deep blue floor-length gown with long white gloves, chandelier earrings and bracelet. She has crimson lips and vibrant red hair. The Barbie Collector doll costs $79.95 and can be found here on barbiecollector.com.
