Trawling the net this morning I discovered that Mattel, have really put a lot of work into the Barbie brand, and courting the adult collector’s market with lots of weird and wonderful collaborations with the worlds elite fashion designers and models.

The one edition that stood out for me though was this Goldie Hawn tattoo doll, taken from a stage appearance on the “Rowan and Martins laugh in show” from the sixities. Its easy to forget now, but in her day she was americas answer to twiggy. A sort of TV friendly sanitised Edie Sedgwick

I’ll have to add private benjamin to my love film list…………
