Bar­bie goes glam rock to honor David Bowie

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Stay Connected -

Bar­bie has been many things over the years. Now, she’s dressed as Ziggy Star­dust.

In cel­e­bra­tion of the 50th an­niver­sary of the re­lease of David Bowie’s iconic “Space Odd­ity,” Bar­bie over­seers at Mat­tel re­leased a collectibl­e ver­sion of the doll dressed as Ziggy Star­dust, one of his most beloved al­ter egos.

Bar­bie wears the metal­lic Ziggy space suit with red and blue stripes, flared shoul­ders and cherry red plat­form boots. Mat­tel spared no makeup, fea­tur­ing the as­tral sphere smack in the mid­dle of Ziggy Bar­bie’s fore­head. The doll’s hair is fiery red.

The $50, limited edi­tion doll was cre­ated in col­lab­o­ra­tion with The David Bowie Ar­chive.

The beloved rocker died in 2016 after bat­tling cancer. He was 69.
