You’ve coveted her closets, drooled over her handbag collection and now Barbie’s giving you another reason to wish you could follow in her fashionable footsteps: She’s modeling dresses for Hervé Léger by Max Azria.
Of course, the doll’s famously svelte figure is a perfect fit for the designer’s second-skin bandage dresses, and she’s got two of the pricey pieces in her closet: A red one, accessorized with a corset harness and gladiator boots, and a black-and-white one that comes with a studded clutch and booties. And because Barbie would never settle for a knockoff, the dresses are made with the same bandage material in the same factory that makes the non-doll-sized collection.

Great news for those of you wishing you could squeeze into her looks: There’s no need to whittle yourself down to Barbie proportions. Hervé Léger will manufacture them in human sizes too. Start your countdown to mid-October, where you’ll be able to pick up all the Barbie-approved goods at their site, Neiman Marcus and BarbieCollector.com. This Barbie (and her sexy wardrobe) starts at $150, so start saving now.
