The dark side of Barbie

As a fundraiser for Ballet Philippines, James Reyes came up with five different looks for the iconic doll, all of which will be auctioned off for the benefit of Ballet Philippines’ scholars. He is one of 40 designers in the country that did so. Here’s one of James’:

Don’t you just love the drama, grandeur and fabulous evilness of the entire ensemble? I do!!!

Now where can I wear this to?


For those who don’t know, James designed my wedding gown. It was gorgeous. His other Contravida Barbie designs can be found at his site. The photo above was lifted from there as well. Stylebible has an interview with James up on its site.
