I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that I don’t attend a lot of holiday parties. BUT I love the idea of dressing up and looking at party dresses. 😛 And who is a better inspiration for party dresses than BARBIE?!
Look at how glam she is! No sure if this is what my Babes in Blogland had in mind when they suggested this topic for collaboration, but today, I’ll showcase Barbie’s holiday party looks. 🙂
Here is the first Happy Holidays Barbie in 1988, sporting a voluminous shimmering red tulle number:
The following year Barbie’s dress could double for a winter bridal gown:
Pretty traditional with a deep green velvet gown in 1991:
Love this gold lamé number from 1994:
omg WHO was Barbie’s stylist for 1995?! They should be fired!
I guess that stylist wasn’t fired, here’s the ensemble for the following year where Barbie possibly visited Russia that year for Christmas?
In 1998, Barbie went for a sleeker look – this black gown and the fuchsia stole really screamed “fashionista!” I also suspect the aforementioned stylist got canned. 😛
Barbie rang in the millenium in another gold lamé gown, but with a faux fur shrug – how 2000 of her.
This berry coloured gown in 2002 was a refreshing departure from the more traditional Christmas-y colours:
Bob Mackie designed this dress for 2006… Cher from 1986 called, she wants her dress back!
2007 Barbie was channeling Santa. She wanted to be Santa, but sexier:
In 2009 Barbie went non-traditional again, with a fairy-inspired gown of pale pink satin and gold chiffon overlay.
And that brings me to the 2015 Holiday Barbie. I think this is my favourite of the bunch!
Which Holiday Barbie party look was your favourite?
