If there is one diva who looks good in plastic, it would be Cher. Over the years, with all the rumored rib removals and rhinoplasties, the singer/actress/ goddess has gone thru more renovations then a Ritz Carlton.
So leave it to the fashion doll geniuses at Mattel to design a line of Cher Barbie dolls that document our icon from her 70's heyday to her 80's comeback era. Clad in miniature recreations of Bob Mackie's finest, these two 11 ½ inch replicas of the former Mrs. Bono are a far cry from the old school Cher doll sold back in the day.
The Barbie 1970s Cher Doll is decked out in feathers and buckskin for the whole "Half Breed" look, while the Barbie 1980s Cher Doll sports her leather and lace look from the infamous "If I Could Turn Back Time" music video (horny sailors not included). It is not clear if her many tattoos adorn her plastic frame, but the dolls do recreate Cher's bountiful black mane quite effectively.

We're still waiting for her other looks, such as her notorious Spider-Woman ensemble from the 1986 Oscars or even a movie role or two. Personally, I would love a little Loretta Castorini, but not the post makeover, going to the opera one. I'm thinking the frumpy, grey-haired one, compete with spring-loaded slapping action that squawks, "Snap out of it!" when she smacks the Nicolas Cage Ken doll upside the head.
