    Life Ball BARBIE® DOLLS

    An excerpt from Lifeball.org regarding these dolls:

    Vivienne Westwood, the grande dame of fashion design, the French designer Christian Lacroix and the italien couturier Valentino dressed -exclusively for Aids Life - the two Life Ball Barbie® dolls in couture outfits of their original collections.

    The three Barbie® dolls are offered in a strictly limited edition for US$ 500.- each. By buying one of the Life Ball Barbie® dolls you help us support HIV+ and people suffering from AIDS, as the entire net proceeds will benefit different AIDS charity organisations.

    Renowned companies and an army of volonteers donated what they could to realize this charity project.

    the most recent dolls are pretty amazing, mostly because technology makes so many more looks possible and because of the new body mold. (i think those were first premiered with the Versace/Versus dolls, no?)

    the Versace doll, i love, simply cause i loved that dress. it was very bold, sexy but also really beautiful and simple.

    Barbie's closet is AMAZING! :lol:
