We have seen the popularity of Barbie throughout our various Hubs. We have seen the popularity of bikinis and how Farrah Fawcett stole the attention of the world in a one piece bathing suit.
Finally decades later, a prototype doll of the much loved blond actress from Charlie Angels, named Farrah Fawcett in her memorable red one piece swimming suit is going up for sale.
The prototype Barbie doll is clothed in the red one piece swim suit that launched a thousand dreams.
This is the poster every one wanted. This is the poster every one lusted after.
Of all the photos of bikinis and scantily clad women, this is the single most provocative photo of our lifetime. Amazingly, the poster is a blond girl in a bikini. It is Farrah Fawcett in a red one piece swim suit.
This prototype Barbie doll (shown below) is a one and only Barbie Doll – “a one of one”. It is the prototype that was created for the upcoming launch of the Farrah Fawcett doll which will be available in the stores in the Fall of 2011. While the cost of the doll was $1500, the auction price is expected to be much higher. Additionally, the popularity of this new collectible is expected to be very high especially among aging female and male baby boomers in the United States! Will this Barbie spur the very first gift of a Barbie doll trend to male baby boomers? I think so!
The Barbie doll is a stunning recreation of the iconic pin-up poster. I think Farrah would be very proud.
