Cher Love Hurts & Cher Time Cover by Magia 2000

If you love Cher that yu’ll adore these amazing dolls created by Magia 2000. The fantastic Italian duo created 2 dolls inspired by two of Cher’s most iconic looks. First we have the tribute doll inspired by Cher in her performance of “Love hurts” at Ceasar Palace in Las Vegas. The original dress was created by Cher’s longtime friend and designer, the one and only Bob Mackie.

See more images here. This doll is for sale so contact Magia 2000 if you are interested in her.

The second doll is my favourite and was created to resamble Cher in her iconic cover outfit of Time Magazine from march 17, 1975. The gown is also designed by Bob Mackie and is one of my fave all time. :X

Barbie x Sister By Sibling For LDN Fashion Week

Yesterday London Fashion Week has started and this year the famous fashion festival has a very importnat guest: Barbie. London-based fashion label Sister By Sibling has partenered with the iconic doll for their Fall/Winter 2012 collection. In the Newgen space at Somerset House, where the festival takes place, six dolls dressed in miniaturized looks were displayed and six huge polaroid pictures of them that were shot for the presentation for the new collection. The images were made by photographer Alastair Strong and entitled “Test Shots“.

I love it when fashion designers turn to Barbie for inspiration and help. That what Barbie is all about, for me at least. A fashion model and a great inspiration. Not very crazy about the images but the clothes look nice and I would love if we had again a series like those wonderful Benetton Barbies. :X

New playline dolls: I Can Be, Prince Liam, Nikki

Some of the playline dolls I’ve told you about have been previewed on Entertainmentearth.com and I must say I’m dissapointed. I don’t get the Barbie I Can Be President B-Party dolls. What do they stand for? What are they? The girls that entertain the president at his b-day? :)) And Prince Liam is another boring Ken. The only dolls that I like are the two cute Chelseas.

New playline updates: Dreamhouse, Play Park, Barbie the Princess and the Popstar

The last day of NYTF has brought us some new playline dolls and playsets that had been announced by Mattel but now have pictures. They will all be available in July 2012. I’m very disspaointed in the Barbie the Princess and the Popstar dolls. :( First of all the story of the new movie is boring and the dolls bring nothing new. But the new Barbie® 3 Story Dreamhouse is cute!! Kind of expensive but cute. Check the images and info below:

Barbie® 3 Story Dreamhouse®

Every house needs an upgrade and the Barbie® 3 Story Dreamhouse® is no exception! Last year, Barbie® became an architect. This year, she’s renovated her own Dreamhouse® to be even dreamier. The fresh look features eye-popping pink columns and photo-real wallpaper. The new design has a more modern aesthetic but still has the same core play value that girls love. House features include three fabulous stories with lights and sounds providing a realistic home touch.

Barbie® Puppy Play Park™

In addition to spending time with her sisters, Barbie® doll loves spending time playing with her pups and teaching them new tricks. This storyline comes to life for girls with the new Barbie Puppy Play Park™ playset. Barbie® doll teaches her pups tricks and they actually respond!
