Barbie Is Getting the Haute Couture Treatment from Zuhair Murad
Barbie's latest look? A stunning haute couture gown courtesy of designer Zuhair Murad. Red carpet favorite Murad has designed lavish creations for megawatt stars like Kate Hudson, Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lopez, and Blake Lively—whose Zuhair Murad Couture gown that she wore to a premiere in 2012 inspired the look the designer dreamed up for Barbie. "Blake epitomized iconic Hollywood style," Murad told InStyle.com back in 2012 when Lively wore the design. "The silhouette of the gown fit perfectly to her figure; the entire look calling to mind the effortless glamour of Rita Hayworth and Elizabeth Taylor."
He re-created the stunning silhouette for the doll in the same nude hue and dramatic, striped geometric design—certainly giving Barbie the same Old-Hollywood glamour he did for Lively. A classic blonde updo, drop earrings, and silver bracelet complete Barbie's red carpet-ready look, making her destined for the spotlight!
