All dolled-up: Couture Barbie worth $15,000?

When is a doll worth more than a car? When she’s Barbie, wearing a custom corset by celebrity design duo The Blonds, apparently.

Phillipe and David Blond have designed sparkling stage outfits for Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj and Beyonce. Their latest client required a much smaller size. 

The one-of-a-kind “Pink Diamond Barbie” is rocking a pink mini-dress and pumps, hand-embellished with fuchsia and rose gems. 

She’s accessorized with a full-length faux fur coat, earrings, a bracelet and a cocktail ring. This Barbie is estimated to be worth $15,000, but she’ll go to the highest bidder at CharityBuzz (Bidding ends Tuesday at 3 p.m. ET). Proceeds from the auction go to the MAC Aids Fund.

If you can’t justify cashing in your kid’s college fund for a doll, Blond Diamond Barbie* is more affordable and just as fierce. She swaps the pink ensemble for a silver bejeweled corset dress with matching jewelry, a white faux-fur coat and glitter pumps. The silver look was actually part of the The Blonds Fall 2008 collection.

The runway version cost $35,000, but Barbs pulls off the look for less at $125 at Barbie Collector

*Blond Diamond Barbie is on backorder until December.
