“The New Janet Jackson Barbie Doll”

I recently mentioned my fascination with collecting Barbie dolls and am ecstatic to find out that Mattel is coming out with a Janet Jackson Barbie doll soon.  Mattel has immortalized Janet Jackson for a good cause with the new Barbie doll.

The toy manufacturer has put a one-of-kind Divinely Janet doll up for bid atCharityBuzz.com. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to Project Angel Food, which delivers meals to Los Angeles-area families affected by terminal illnesses.

Janet’s Barbie was inspired by the fierce ensemble she wore on “American Idol” earlier this year. “I knew we had to recreate that look for her one of a kind doll,” said Mattel Designer Jackline Gonzalez.

From the doll’s hairstyle and unique facial features, to its curve-hugging catsuit, Jackline put special care into creating a miniature Ms. Jackson (if ya nasty!). We especially love how she sprinkled Divinely Janet’s gown and microphone with Swarovski crystals. So fab!

As of press time, the Barbie was going for $1,050. To put in a bid for the Divinely Janet doll, go to CharityBuzz.com. The doll will come with a special display case and a certificate of authenticity.
