Luis Buñuel's film Belle de jour is a classic of cinema. Regardless of your opinion on the storyline, the film features the beautiful Catherine Deneuve wearing Yves Saint Laurent. And one of the designs is the ultimate Little Black Dress.
This year's Barbie Fashion Model Collection is based on classic designs revisited. And this famous LBD became part of the collection on dolls issued for Barbie and fashion doll events in Tokyo and Paris.
For this Dolldom feature, vintage fashion maven Liz Retros has recreated the iconic dress and who better to wear it but the hard working "Classic Black Dress" Barbie? Retros' version is based on the Saint Laurent model and features a back zipper closing and a silken Georgette. As a nod the the aforementioned film, Barbie gets to spend her morn playing with her dolls, camera at hand, so she may document her play.
