Barbie dresses up like Elvis
Although Barbie is no stranger to gold lame', she usually wears it in the form of a gown or cocktail dress. But not this time.
Come July, the iconic Mattel doll will be dressed up like Memphis' own Elvis Presley and for sale to Elvis fans and Barbie afficianados alike.
She's wearing what company literature calls a "tribute to Elvis with an artistic interpretation of one of the American music icon's most famous fashions." It's an updated, feminized version of the glitzy golden suit from the cover of the King's 1959 album 50,000,000 Elvis Fans Can't Be Wrong.
