On Wednesday, Mattel dropped another Barbie doll for the legendary singer in honor of the 50th anniversary of “Hunky Dory,” Bowie’s fourth studio album.
The doll is suited up in a powder-blue suit, red hair styled in a mullet, blushed cheeks, chunky brown platforms and dramatic blue eye makeup. The look is modeled after Bowie’s outfit in the “Life on Mars?” music video, which was released in 1971.
Though “Hunky Dory” is now considered a masterpiece, known as one of Bowie’s best works, the album initially did poorly in sales and failed to chart when it was released. However, it was met with critical acclaim by both the U.S. and U.K. press. The album features hit songs such as “Changes,” “Queen B-tch” and “Life on Mars?”
The doll wears a formfitting space suit with flared shoulders, calf-high red platform boots and dangling earrings with stars. It also features bold makeup, including the astral sphere forehead icon Bowie used to wear, and his signature fiery-red hair slicked back.
