$600,000 is the value of the necklace and diamond created by master Australian jeweller Stefano Canturi for Barbie at a special function, hosted at Fashion Week’s Rosemount Bar.
“She was a dream to work with,” Canturi said of the fashion icon, who at 50 looks a lot fresher than some of the models treading the runway for local designers. The not so living doll was in Sydney for the launch of the Barbie Basics range with her personal stylist and principal designer Robert Best.
With a Sydney Opera House backdrop Barbie was making the most of her moment in the sun because, Best revealed, next year her toy boy Ken turns 50 and he might be enjoying a not so basic fashion moment.
