The Blonde Collection, a dream-worthy line of high end luxury Barbie inspired items from Mattel launched today. Featuring many one-of-a-kind pieces created by top designers, this glamorously kitschy collection is right up my alley! The highlight of the collection are 3 custom Barbie dolls designed by NYC fashion duo The Blonds. I've known David and Phillipe for years and have worked as a makeup artist on many of their fashion shows. Since Phillipe's Barbie doll obsession parallels my own, I know this is a dream come true for him. So magical and exciting! Truly a match made in BLOND heaven.

Below are some of my favorite items in The Blonde Collection. Anyone thinking about what to get me for Xmas can look no further! ;)
One of a kind!
For a mere $10, 000 you can buy a hand-crafted and made to order Barbie inspired corset by The Blonds as seen at their Spring/Summer 2011 fashion show!
Sealed with a golden kiss: A golden embossed leather, suede lined clutch which is a life sized reproduction of the one than came with Barbie's Silken Flame outfit in 1960.
Locks of light: A hand-crafted chandelier created by Project Runway’s Chris March, made from Barbie's signature ponytail (or Blond Ambition Madonna's)! A bit too kitschy (even for me)...but hysterical!
Pink up the party: A set of 4 glossy tumblers and matching serving tray!
Haute hair: a Barbie T3 Featherweight ionic blow dryer with T3's Tourmaline SoftAire™ flow system!!! MUST HAVE!
Doll-ars and cents: a screen printed wallet with retro Barbie illustration!
Hair today...GLAM tomorrow: custom made acrylic Barbie bangles
