Tim Gunn Styles Barbie - Be still my beating heart!

According to InStyle magazine, Barbie is getting a Tim Gunn makeover. Barbie is - and may always be my favorite doll, and for the past 8 years, Project Runway has been one of my favorite television shows. These 2 go together like peas and carrots! The $30 dolls and $25 accessory packs are supposed to hit and Target stores on August 1st. I can only assume that these dolls will replace the now discontinued Barbie Basics dolls. I can hardly contain my excitement!

Thanks for sharing... hope the line will include more than the four featured dolls.

Thanks for the info! I too love Project Runway and Barbie! Tim is a sweetie too! Is the photo of the dolls or the doll with the accessory packs on? It only looks like two faces. No Articulation... again! What happened with 2.5? I thought they were moving forward!
Thanks again!

From what I can tell, the initial launch will include 2 dolls and 2 accessory packs. I am hopeful that there will be more (including a dark skin doll) in the future. I'm looking forward to the accessory packs, but probably won't buy either of the first two dolls - unless the outfit is "fierce".

I like the last outfit best - that buttery jacket looks great. Thanks for sharing this news and the news that there may be MORE of them. (Fingers crossed.)
