Barbie Doll manufacturer Mattel Inc. has imposed a ban over a beheaded, blood red painted Barbie for an exhibition organised by Elton.

 

Elton asked 50 artists and designers to create their very own Barbie which will then be auctioned off benefiting the Elton John Aids Foundation. The exhibition took place in London on December 1, 1999, (World Aids Day). Guests were asked to appear dressed in pink Barbie-like clothes!
