Dripping in diamonds and clad in her glam LBD, Barbie looked a million dollars - well, $302,500 to be exact, as our favourite doll was auctioned off for a whopping £191,000 in New York.
Wearing a one carat pink diamond necklace surrounded by three carat diamonds, this blinged up Babs was created by jewellery designer Stefano Canturi. Stefano not only made her jewels, but her strapless cocktail dress, peep toe stilettos and blonde mane of hair, too!
Causing a bidding frenzy at New Yorks famous Christies auction house, the winning bidder went home the bespoke Barbie and was nearly £200,000 lighter. Beating the previous world auction record where the doll fetched £10,785 in 2006, all proceeds of the bid went to breast cancer research in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
