The Art of Barbie dinner-dance in association with the Elton John Aids Foundation takes place December 1, 1999.

 

Celebrating Barbie's 40th anniversary, more than 50 artists and fashion designers have committed to the event where they will transform the iconic doll into "an artform".

 

Barbie manufacturer Mattel Inc. had imposed a ban over a beheaded, blood red painted Barbie for the exhibition organised by Elton. Hosted by Elton, David Furnish and Victoria Beckham, tickets cost £200.
