Introducing Barbie® doll’s latest career! The unstoppable fashion icon has taken on more than 150 careers since her debut in 1959. And for 2015, it’s time to say “Lights, Camera, Action!” for Barbie® Career of the Year Film Director Doll.
Barbie doll has always been an inspiration to girls to follow their dreams, and went to places few women had been before, to show girls that anything is possible. Like the astronaut doll in the 60s, the CEO doll in the 80s, and the presidential candidate doll in the 90s, Barbie® Film Director Doll gives girls the opportunity to imagine and envision themselves in this career.
Film Director Barbie® is ready to get behind the camera in an outfit that is both functional and fashionable. Jeans and a pink top are easy to move in, while a patterned scarf adds the perfect artsy touch. And with her new articulated ankle, this professional can go from running-around-the-set flats to movie-premiere heels! She comes with adorable black flat shoes and hip heeled boots to make sure she’s ready for any occasion. A viewfinder and utility belt make for picture-perfect accessories, while her sunglasses are a necessity when she’s on set outdoors.
This decade has seen Barbie tackle a set of terrific, awe-inspiring careers, including Entrepreneur Barbie® in 2014, Mars Explorer Barbie® in 2013, and Architect Barbie® in 2011. Film Director Barbie® continues a tradition of showing girls that the power to achieve their dreams is within their reach. All it takes is imagination, determination, and a role model to help you believe!
She’s back to inspire a new generation of leaders! Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll was originally released in 1985, and now she’s ready to change the world again as a vintage reproduction doll.
Shockingly, Barbie® Signature Principal Designer Bill Greening didn’t have the original Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll in his personal collection, but it should come as no surprise that he’s pretty familiar with it. “I know she’s a fan favorite,” he says, “and she feels very iconic to the brand, too.”
In designing her triumphant return to the workplace, Greening also benefited from an understanding of the history and the pop culture touchpoints of the women’s workplace revolution, during which Day-to-Night™ Barbie® originally debuted. “She was a business woman breaking the glass ceiling, so to speak, as showcased in films of the era like 9 to 5 and Working Girl. Plus, she’s the first doll to really showcase fashion transformation – a theme still popular today.”
Features of dolls from the vintage era aren’t always the easiest to re-create, and that can present challenges for even the most seasoned designer. “The pink flocked fabric suit isn’t made from a fabric we widely use today in the Barbie line,” Greening explains, describing the soft pink power suit that transforms into a shirred skirt evening look. “We also had to make sure the fashion transformation was just as magical as the original.” How did they manage to pull that off? Well, it wouldn’t be as magical if we revealed the trick…
Of course, no Barbie® doll – vintage, modern, or reproduction – is complete without a suite of fun and perfectly matched accessories. For Greening, her briefcase, calculator, spectator heels, and wide brim hat “are cues to signify she means business! I also love the Superstar face sculpt, and her bendable legs that ‘click’ when you bend them. It definitely takes me back to playing with Barbie® in the 1980s.”
Considering that dolls of the Superstar era have been in demand as vintage reproductions over the last few years (including Dream Date™ Barbie® and Golden Dream™ Barbie®), giving Day-to-Night™ Barbie® the vintage reproduction treatment was a natural choice. If you missed her back in the 1980s, now’s the perfect time to add her to your collection – or give her as an inspiring gift. Get Day-to-Night™ Barbie® Doll in the online shop right now!
