Barbie Goes Hardcore

In her time, Barbie‘s had more than a few outfit changes. Most recently, the master of red soles — Christian Louboutin — outfitted the doll, but now it seems she’s going for a bit of a harder edge, thanks to Chrome Hearts. Say goodbye to Barbie the cookie-cutter teacher and hello to downtown rocker chick. The more alternative brand teamed up with Mattel to create a 12-piece collection of 3-foot-tall Barbies and completely transformed the iconic doll. Each girl has her own specialized name and outfit, which includes a leather jacket, knee-highs, Keds, and detailed accessories. That’s not all — Barbie even got a bit of special treatment for her locks, thanks to celebrity hairstylist Oribe. But these Barbies are no play thing for little girls; each one is said to be valued between $18,000 and $25,000, but you can visit them on display from April 10-24 at Roma Cohen’s Alchemist in Miami, followed by locations in New York City, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Tokyo, and Shanghai.
