What a Doll: Mattel's Salute to the Rocket Man

Written by Chief Editor.

Mattel's latest Barbie doll pays tribute to Sir Elton.

 
Wearing jeans embellished with the rocker's initials, a bomber jacket reading ''Elton,'' and pink-tinted sunglasses, her release is timed to the anniversary of Elton's 1975 Dodger Stadium engagement (October 25 and 26).
 
Elton says: ''Barbie is an icon in her own right, so having her pay tribute to my work and personal style is a real honour.
 
''I hope that she inspires fans everywhere to fearlessly pursue their own dreams and limitless potential.''
