Exclusive: See Barbie's New Elizabeth Taylor Doll

Elizabeth Taylor Barbie
Paul Jordan/Mattel

Lindsay Lohan isn’t the only star paying homage to the late Elizabeth Taylor this week — Barbie is, too!

Named after Taylor’s best-selling fragrance, White Diamonds, the Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Barbie doll honors the icon in more ways than one: Along with her signature black bob, the doll dons a glam white dress complete with a red satin ribbon to represent the extensive work Taylor did for people living with HIV/AIDS.

And since Taylor was known for her gorgeous gems, it’s only fitting that the Barbie comes complete with some glimmering gold jewelry, plus a second pair of strappy heels, a pair of white sunglasses, a replica bottle of her White Diamonds fragrance and a movie script.

The Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Barbie doll is available on barbiecollector.com for $150. Tell us: Who does a better Taylor tribute: Lohan or Barbie?

Courtney on

Barbie does it better than Lindsey Lohan ever could

Star on

OMG I LOVE IT!! I want to add it to my Christmas list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lolol on

Is this even a question? Barbie! Although I’m not sure who is made of more plastic.

Kat on

Well, both the doll and Lindsay are plastic, so….I’m going with Barbie!

itznia on

This doll is stunning – they should of just done this to honor her and left out the ridiculous Lifetime movie!! Lindsay Lohan is no Liz Taylor.

Jenny! on

The barbie is a really nice way to represent liz, why couldn’t have this been done and not a movie with lohan. Like most u watch the preview and it’s hard to imagine liz with lohan acting in her shoes, just isn’t right.

Bev on

Barbie does it way better. Lindsay who???? Need I say more.
Beautifully done.

Sabrina on

It’s a beautiful doll. But is it just me, or is the neck really long?

LoLo on

love it!!

vicki on

I’m impressed with the likeness..nice job!!

MelJ on

How lovely that “they” got this just right. This doll is the first I’ve seen that really looks like the person it is modeled after (except the Shirley Temple doll of the 1930’s). Not a doll collector, but just want to say “good job” on getting this right.

vicki on

I’m impressed with the likeness…nice job!

Frieda on

That doll looks like Angelina Jolie!! Very beautiful!

Lucie on

fanofboardwalkempire on

shannon on

C.J. Farrell on

Barbie–hands down!

kasia on

creepy neck

Lenora on

Many years ago, Mattel designed an Elizabeth Taylor doll.
One doll was was made, sold, and the money went to charity. I’ve never seen a doll with such a likeness for it’s subject. It
was beautiful. I like the new doll – but, please – you needn’t
mention Lindsay Lohan. She has nothing to do with this doll.
The late Ms. Taylor and Mattel do.


Barbie hands down!! Lohan can drop dead!!!!

abubu on

What is with the giraff neck?

Claudia on

Well Barbie looks more like Liz but Lindsay also did a great job playing her…whoever says the opposite is probably envious.

TheNiteNurse on

Yes let’s all remember Liz before she became the fat old drug addicted alcoholic that made the news. How approriate that Lindsey Lohan is playing her.

ConnieM on

No contest…..Barbie 100%. Why in the world they picked Lohan for Liz had to be a “pay back”. Lohan couldn’t compete with playing Liz on any level!!!!!

deb on

Would you stop mentioning Lohan in the same world of Miss Elizabeth Taylor? I want to wretch every time!

Sandra Harris on

BARBIE!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Elizabeth mc donald on

Barbie does it better. It looks great

Kay on

Tom M. on

Queen Lindsay Lohan of course! <3
