Barbie doll wearing Sophisticated Lady, a 1963 fashion reproduction, is the third doll in the Collectors' Request Collection developed specifically for Barbie doll collectors worldwide. She is the height of early sixties' elegance, looking very regal in her majestic evening ensemble. The year is 1963, a time of optimism, change and sophisticated style... and Barbie is in the fashion forefront. This Limited Edition reproduces two Barbie originals: Barbie doll with a bubble cut and pink lips, pink fingernails and toenails, and the hard-to-find fashion, "Sophisticated Lady" (#993). The taffeta ball gown, trimmed in silver tone filigree lace, has a wide, sweeping skirt. Adding to the dramatic effect is a fully lined sleeveless coat with stand-up collar and silvery bead buttons. A silvery tiara, opera-length gloves, a simple strand of pink and white faux pearls, pink earrings and pink open-toe pumps complete her royal ensemble.
