Barbie X Claudia Schiffer

In celebration of Claudia Schiffer’s 50th birthday, Barbie have recreated some of her most iconic fashion moments in partnership with Versace and Balmain.


Here Barbie is modelling a Versace dress Claudia wore in the Autumn/Winter 1994 runway show. Donatella Versace says “Since we were little girls, Barbie has always been not only a doll, but most importantly it was a mirror of our society as it kept evolving with it  Claudia and Barbie are two strong women who do not need to be empowered by anyone, because they have always been the makers of their destiny. I am so proud that to celebrate Claudia’s 50th year, the blue gown from the 1994 show was chosen as her outfit. Feminine and glamour, it really epitomises the style of both of them.”


Barbie re-created the Balmain dress Claudia wore for the Spring/Summer 2016 campaign. “Claudia Schiffer is, of course, one of fashion’s most transformative figures—she’s the definition of a supermodel” says Balmain Creative Director Olivier Rousteing. “Over the decades, she’s inspired millions with her distinctive mix of confidence, style and beauty. Seeing her in one of my favorite runway looks was one of my proudest moments—and the Balmain campaign that she shot for me will forever remain one of my favorite memories. So, obviously, I am beyond thrilled to see that same look replicated on another inspiring fashion icon, Barbie.”
