Mad Men style meets its miniature match

Posted By on Thu, Mar 11, 2010 at 2:30 PM

I don't watch Mad Men (no cable) and I don't play with Barbie dolls (anymore) but I can still totally appreciate this based on killer 60s fashion.

(Which is more than anyone can say for Wal-Mart. The behemoth that just got caught selling black dolls at half the price of white dolls).

Anyway, parent companies Mattel and Lionsgate unveiled yesterday Mad Men Barbie dolls.

Designed by Barbie designer Robert Best, the "Mad Men" Barbie doll line features key players from the Sterling Cooper Advertising Agency: creative director and leading man Don Draper; his wife Betty Draper; Sterling Cooper partner Roger Sterling; and bombshell office manager Joan Holloway.

All-American commerce: yours for just $74.95
  • Mattel, Inc., Lionsgate®
  • All-American commerce: yours for just $74.95

For those in the know, here are the details on what the dolls are wearing:

Don Draper wears his classic, polished red-lined suit and comes accessorized with a hat, overcoat and brief case; Betty Draper's classic look is captured with unparalleled detail, from her faux pearl necklace to her pumps; Joan Holloway looks chic in a purple skirt suit and perfectly styled coif with her staple accessory - a pen necklace; and Roger Sterling is looking dapper in his monogrammed shirt.

Some things are just meant to be together.
