In spite of recent beliefs that she does more to damage women’s perception of themselves rather than aid it, Barbie is an icon. So to celebrate previous anniversary of the doll, De Beers designed the $85,000 Diamond Barbie. With miniature white gold jewelry and an outfit with 160 miniature diamonds, this Barbie doll (which looks absolutely nothing like any Barbie dolls I’ve seen) is ready to hit the town. Well, she’s actually extremely underdressed to enter any place that doesn’t have the name of a mint and an exotic animal in neon lights above the door, but still, you can’t put a price on whorish luxury.
