There's no denying Barbie and Iris Apfel are absolute icons. Barbie is known for her all-pink lifestyle and her endless amount of careers. Apfel is a 96-year-old fashion legend famous for her head-to-toe colorful outfits and her thick-rimmed glasses, who's done everything from designing for the White House to appearing in Vogue Italia.
Both are well-known fashion figures who demonstrate how you can always achieve the impossible, especially with a good outfit! So it makes sense that Mattel has joined the two together in a special way. In honor of Apfel’s new book, Barbie has debuted an Apfel-inspired doll — but there is one catch.
Sadly, the Iris Apfel Barbie isn't for sale. Still, your favorite dolls can now wear Apfel-approved threads.
"Iris Apfel embodies the quintessential role model for Barbie with her singular style vision, entrepreneurial spirit and independence," Mattel said.
"Her long-spanning career makes her the perfect subject of a one-of-a-kind doll, the highest honor Barbie bestows," the brand continued.
Hey, we may not all be able to get a Barbie doll replica, but we can definitely get inspired by Afpel.
