The Iris Apfel Styled Barbie Dolls Are Divine.

Iris Apfel Styled Barbie Dolls

Ordinarily you wouldn’t expect anyone to clamor after a doll dressed like a still-living 96 year-old, but the Barbie Styled by Iris Apfel Dolls are anything but ordinary.

Fashioned after 96 year old living legend Iris Apfel, the two “Barbie Styled by” Iris Apfel Dolls (each sold separately) are great fun for young and old alike. While not as impeccably detailed as some of the past Barbie Platinum, Gold and Pink label dolls and collectibles about which we’ve written, they are far more affordable, making terrific gifts. Especially to older women who admire and are inspired by one of the most dynamic personalities in the worlds of fashion, textiles, and interior design.

The self-proclaimed “oldest living teenager,” Apfel infuses her sense of wonder, humor, and curiosity into her bold, highly colorful designs. A genuine fashion icon, with style in her DNA, Iris has been honored with awards, museum exhibits, and a documentary, among many other outstanding achievements. With a bright red lip, her signature oversized spectacles, and layers of accessories, she is the epitome of joie de vivre.

The Barbie® Styled by Iris Apfel dolls wear fashions from the designer’s own Rara Avis collection.
