Description[]

"Hey dolls, it's finally happened! Your fave Harajuku Barbie has collaborated with her doll idol and the result is FAB! Nicki Minaj has recently been named Billboard's Rising Star of the Year but now the rapper, singer and songwriter is larger than life as an over-the-top 11 ½" fashion doll. Nicki's original one-of-a-kind likeness is beautiful in a dazzling replica of the frothy dress from her Pink Friday album. She practically floats in wispy layers of silk charmeuse and shimmering tulle, and of course, she’s rockin' some Barbie® bling!

From Nicki's cotton-candy pink hair, to her hand-rooted eye lashes, doll-tastic designer Stephen Sumner recreated every signature detail, right down to the tattoo on Nicki's left arm. He even hand-placed each crystal accent on her jewelry.

This a-mazing original one-of-a-kind Nicki Minaj doll comes with a certificate of authenticity and a display case that is a gorgeous homage to her Pink Friday album. Muah dolls... from Barbie® and Nicki!

Donated by: Mattel"

Billboard reported on December 2, 2011 that the doll was available for auction at CharityBuzz.com. Auction bids, which were received through December 19, started at $1,000 and all proceeds went to Project Angel Food. The doll was showcased at The Beverly Hilton hotel during Divine Design's five-day event in Los Angeles.

Barbie spokeswoman Stefani Yocky said, "Barbie is obviously a pop culture icon. She's been in the spotlight for over 50 years, and strikes that chord with girls of all ages in terms of being representative of the times. And Nicki is a big part of pop culture and also huge within the fashion industry, as well as a big Barbie fan, (...) It's really exciting for us that she's been so generous to allow us to create this one-of-a-kind doll to support such an important cause."[4]

At Billboard's Women in Music event, Nicki Minaj said, "It's just a one of a kind, limited edition for charity, and I never thought Mattel would even pay attention to me, (...) For me this is a very major moment, because it just shows that you can come from nothing and still be a force in the main world, a business woman, and hopefully a mogul one day."[5]
