I am loving the new Holiday Barbie for 2011! She is a change of direction from last year which is a good thing. Not to say there was anything wrong with the 2010 model but Mattel needs to change her up and surprise collectors to keep the series relevant.
Designed by the head designer Robert Best this Holiday Barbie is elegant. The understated green and gold colors with the structured gown and subtle "holiday" embroidery would not be out of place on any red carpet.

The display box is gorgeous and really compliments the doll with a red and gold theme. Holiday Barbie is in a large hall decorated for the holidays and it looks the inspiration was the Hall of Mirrors at Versailles. The overall effect is stunning.

This years Holiday Barbie will be appreciated by the seasoned collector or will make a beautiful introduction to collecting for the novice.
