Barbie Gets Racy as Lady Gaga

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Celebrities, News,

Lady Gaga's Meat DressFirst came the Christian Louboutin collection, which was odd yet fairly acceptable; however, consumers are quick to see a desperate company in highly publicized collaborations like this. This time, Mattel is grabbing headlines by presenting a series of dolls that represent Lady Gaga's most memorable costumes outfits.

Lady Gaga, despite her intense wardrobe, has worn many beautiful and classy dresses (the McQueen dress she wore to the MTV VMAs, for instance) that would have been amazing to see on the iconic doll; yet, the company seems to have placed their standards for quality at an alarmingly low rate.

Either way, check out the rest of the dresses after the jump. They even made one for Beyonce from the "Telephone" video; unfortunately, judging by how little the doll actually resembles Beyonce, it looks like Mattel was not worried about slacking on the now less-popular singer's miniature counterpart.
