Day 19: Bold in Black - 2006 Holiday Barbie

*sings* Heaven! I'm in heaven!

Can you believe this? My Bob Mackie doll count is up to 4 because he has again designed another Holiday Barbie!

Can you believe this? What a sensational dress! It's perfect in every way. Barbie almost looks like a goddess with the headpiece and dress.

What is not to like? From the beautiful braid to the star earrings and glittering makeup, she is perfect in every sense of the word.

Remember how magical stars are? We discussed this with the 2001 Holiday Celebration Barbie. So Mackie brought the magic of stars with this dress.

I just love how Mackie incorporated a bunch of color into this dress. I love everything about it!

The back of the box reads: "This most beautiful season brings celebrations, filled with the joy and love of family and friends. If you believe, the holidays deliver the gifts of harmony and hope, wrapped in magic and decorated with glamour! The special extravaganza of this year: Holiday Barbie doll by Bob Mackie!

Bob Mackie again presents a beautiful gift for this special season. The 2006 Holiday Barbie by Bob Mackie is wonderfully sophisticated in a black gown, embellished with white faux fur and festive multicolored stars.

For years, Bob Mackie's designs have graced the most famous stars in the entertainment industry as well as the most glamorous women throughout the world. In 1990, Mackie glamour reached the pinnacle of fantasy when he began designing for the definitive fashion doll - Barbie. 2006 marks Mr. Mackie's second Holiday Barbie doll creation, sure to be treasured for years to come!"

You know, I wonder where he gets his inspiration. Maybe it was Russia! Or maybe he just creates them all from his mind. That is why he is such a genius with Barbie gowns!
