(Not) Drag Queen Barbie

This special-edition Barbie was created by design duo and partners Phillipe and David Blond, known as The Blonds. The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie is the official name, but she's better known as Drag Queen Barbie.

Although Mattel and The Blonds have denied they intended to make a drag queen Barbie, the name is sticking thanks to her sky-high heels, strong makeup, sparkly dress, and over-the-top fur — not to mention, Phillipe Blond is known to dress in a similar drag look. But it's not clear whether drag queens inspired this Barbie or whether Barbie inspired drag queens. David says of Phillipe, "Usually when he is dressed to go to a fashion show, he looks like Barbie."
