Mattel latest Barbie doll celebrates the millennial market – David Bowie’s iconic alter ego Ziggy Stardust. The dainty figurine will be dressed in red boots, a striped jumpsuit and a backcombed mane of hair.
With their current range of dolls, Barbie is encouraging girls to reach the stars. The latest doll has honored Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, whose 199-day mission on the International Space Station in 2014 was then the longest by a woman.
Priced at $50, the Barbie pays tribute to Bowie’s character that was created in 1971.
