Doll available now
Toymakers Mattel have announced a second collectable doll in their Barbie as David Bowie. The doll’s look is based on Bowie’s look in the Mick Rock-directed “Life On Mars?”
The Barbie doll models an authentic replica of the bespoke powder-blue suit Bowie wore in the “Life on Mars?” music video, including a foil-printed pin-stripe shirt, statement tie, and platform shoes. Her hairstyle and bold blue eyeshadow are inspired by Bowie’s ‘70s glam era look.
Designer Linda Kyaw-Merschon and her team recreated this legendary moment in Bowie’s history.
“It’s a tribute to Bowie – his outfit, his makeup, his features – to emulate his essence and make sure it looked like Barbie, but as Bowie,” Kyaw-Merschon says.
Doll comes in displaying packaging with a doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity. Doll cannot stand alone. It can be purchased through Amazon for $50.
Bowie was a one-man cultural phenomenon for his contributions to music, art, fashion, and film. Our second tribute doll celebrates the 50th anniversary of his classic Hunky Dory, the iconic “Life on Mars?” video, and an outfit forever associated with him.
