Barbie Doll as Empress Sissy
1996 World Culture
Get ready for a royal treat. It's a Limited Edition Barbie® doll, inspired by Empress Sissy of Austria's Habsburg-Lothringen Dynasty. Her costume was recreated from a 19th century painting and features a fitted satin bodice, decorated with sequins and beads and lavish golden braid. The back of her gown is hand sewn with tiny "faux pearl" buttons. From her lace trimmed pantaloons and shoes, to her delicate fan, to her dark braided hair accented with rhinestones, she's every bit an Empress.
