2018 Elegant Rose Cocktail Dress Silkstone Barbie

December 7, 2017

Joe’s List has just released the first images of the 2018 Elegant Rose Cocktail Dress Silkstone Barbie that I have been telling you about a week ago.

The doll’s dress is inspired by a 1960s Dior dress, just like Rogier has pointed out, and this girl is a stunner. For me she is a tribute to the older Silkstone Barbie dolls that collectors love. yes, she doesn’t have as many accesories and the design of the dress is clean and simple, but she is beautiful.

What is most intriguing for me is the new box design. Actually I created something simmilar this year for the Madrid Fashion Doll Show helpers’ doll so you can imagine I really enjoy the new box design. I have seen collectors say that the box is not as elegant as before, but this is not a clasic interpretation of elegance, but a modern one.

Her price is ok. $89 on Joe’s site so looks like Mattel is trying to lower down it’s prices if we are to judge by looking at this price and the price for the Gigi Barbie doll.

So, what are your thoughts on this beauty? Yey or Nay?

    She’s really gorgeous! I know some will still complain about her articulation, but I think she’s perfect!
