Mattel releases fourth Claudia Schiffer Barbie

Published on: 30th November 2023

Claudia Schiffer’s fourth Barbie doll has been released by Mattel and is the first to be available for public purchase nationwide. 

BarbieClaudia Schiffer is celebrating global fashion icon, legendary supermodel and entrepreneur Claudia Schiffer with a Barbie doll in her likeness, featuring a recreation of her iconic runway moment from the 1994 Fall/Winter Atelier Versace show.

The Claudia Schiffer doll makes a bold statement, pairing Claudia and Versace – two glamorous and iconic brands. Recreated for Barbie, the showstopping cerulean gown, combined with a bustier inspired by the signature Versace corset bodice, creates a delicate shimmer from every angle. Claudia’s look is complete with matching strappy heels, her famous blonde locks and soft makeup.

“My earliest memories are playing with Barbie and wishing I could be just like her. Half a century later, Mattel has made my wish come true by designing a doll in my likeness,” said Claudia Schiffer. “I hope my doll can inspire all fans to dream big and follow their passions.”

Claudia Schiffer is a powerhouse and icon in the world of fashion. She has walked for virtually every luxury fashion label and graced the cover of Vogue US 16 times. Celebrities and tastemakers still embrace her chic signature style today. This summer, the Barbie movie’s own Margot Robbie was seen dressed in an all-pink 1990s Chanel blazer, originally worn by Claudia Schiffer on her global press tour.

In 2017, Barbie created a one-of-a-kind doll of Claudia to celebrate 30 years of her career and the launch of her self-titled book. Barbie recreated the golden Versace look she wore in the 1994 Real Barbie Vogue Italia shoot with Ellen von Unwerth.  

Barbie also celebrated Claudia Schiffer’s 50th birthday in 2020 by creating two one-of-a-kind Barbie dolls of the supermodel in her all-time favourite Versace and Balmain dresses. The Versace gown is featured on the Claudia Schiffer doll available for sale now.

Claudia Schiffer is not the only celebrity celebrated by Mattel. The Barbie x Mariah Carey Holiday Celebration Doll has recently been released in time for Christmas. Wearing a glittery red gown and holding a microphone, Mariah’s Barbie celebrates her success as a chart-topping singer, especially her holiday hit All I Want For Christmas Is You, and encapsulates the festive spirit.
