Bob Mackie on "The Carol Burnett Show"

The first Barbie Doll Bob Mackie creation was produced in 1990. Fitted in a daring gown of 5000 hand-sewn golden sequins accented with a white feather boa, this Gold Label Barbie is a vision of fantasy couture. Her platinum blonde hair is pulled up, and accented by a golden headpiece. Golden earrings and bracelets accent this incredible ensemble. She comes package in form-fitting plastic inside a sturdy Plexiglas display case with the Barbie logo in the front display, actually she was the only Bob Mackie Barbie Doll not sold in a regular box. #5405
