Greta Gerwig’s Barbie film is blowing up the field workplace, and which means everyone’s bought Barbie (and Ken and Allan, in fact) on the mind.
However whereas many iterations of Barbie seem within the movie, one mega-star Barbie is notably absent: the Beyoncé Barbie. Sure, in 2005, Mattel produced a Beyoncé Barbie as a part of their set of Future’s Baby dolls—however that is not the one connection Bey shares with the enduring doll.

However there’s one other important second in Beyoncé’s Barbie historical past you won’t find out about. Howdy Journal factors out that none apart from Blue Ivy Carter, heiress to the Bey-Jay dynasty, has a novel Barbie doll that was definitely not bought in any shops.
You see, roughly 10 years in the past, Blue Ivy was set to have a good time her 1st birthday. And as you’ll be able to think about, the primary birthday of the primary baby of Beyoncé and Jay-Z wasn’t going to be a quiet, modest affair. The celebration, described as a “princess-themed, lavish bash held in New York,” featured greater than $75,000 value of pink and white roses and a virtually $2,000 birthday cake.
However these prices pale compared to the value of the distinctive present Blue Ivy herself in the end bought: “a diamond-encrusted, one-of-a-kind Barbie.” Howdy cites the doll as value $80,000, due to an adornment of “160 glowing diamonds embedded in white gold.”
Although to be trustworthy, it is Beyoncé and Jay-Z. What did we predict they’d do, hit the discount bin?
