in the news: canturi barbie
Well, after last night’s auction at Christie’s New York, we still don’t know who bought it but we do know the selling price was $302,500. Admittedly, this was on the low side of the expected $300,000 – $500,000 range but it still claims the title of most expensive Barbie ever.
So what makes this doll so special? Jewelry designer Stefano Canturi designed her entire look, including a necklace in his signature Cubism style featuring a stunning one carat Australian Argyle pink diamond. Barbie also wears a matching Cubism ring.
While this may all seem a bit exorbitant for a doll, it’s for a good cause – 100% of the profits will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Read more on the Canturi website.
