Barbie has served as a female role model for years, donning everything from a nurse's uniform to an Olympic athlete's tracksuit and Presidential power suit.

Now, however, the famous plastic doll is aiming to inspire male fans through the first 'drag queen' Barbie.

Although the term drag queen is not officially used to describe the new The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie Doll, the plastic figurine was created in part by New York-based fashion designer Phillipe Blond, who is a cross-dresser himself.

Yikes! If the Mattel doll, created in 1959, was human she'd walk on all fours and be incapable of lifting her over-sized head

Mattel, the company that manufactures Barbie, commissioned the work to Phillipe and David Blond of the label The Blonds, who have expressed their adoration for the doll ever since their label was born in 2007.

Cathy Cline, vice president of marketing for Mattel's girls' brands, told The New York Times: 'One of the great things about Barbie is that she continues to push the envelope. Barbie doesn't worry about what other people think.'

Phillipe himself expressed the same sentiment.

'Fashion is a form of self-expression and we believe that everyone should feel glamorous every day,' he said.

The doll, who really should have been modeled with the male Ken doll, features a side-swept hair style and an extremely short bejeweled mini corset dress that is laced up at the back.

She pairs the look with flashy accessories also' a chunky silver cuff, a sparkling cocktail ring and silver metallic pumps that feature a lipstick pink sole.

A full-length faux fox fur coat completes the dramatic look.

Barbie has also been given eyelash extensions, a must for any drag queen.

Phillipe himself sports similar long blonde hair to the doll, though his design partner David stressed that it is not a true representation of him.

Instead, the doll 'may loosely be based on Phillipe and this character that he plays within our little Blond world,' David said.

An official description for the doll describes the drag queen figurine as 'pretty, provocative, and magical'.

It says: 'Phillipe and David Blond believe that every woman should be glamorous every day.

It then talks about Barbie's wardrobe picks.

'Fun fashion and rock 'n' roll glam are the only rules for these gorgeous garments,' it reads. 'Our favourite blonde celebrates The Blonds, dressed for an amazing adventure.

'The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie brings the most sparkly splendor of fashion.'

In 2009, The Blonds took part in Barbie's 50th birthday fashion show, which no doubt helped to push the current partnership along.

Their designs often include sparkly corsets and have been spotted on the likes of Katy Perry, Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj.

Their fashion shows are also just as theatrical.

The brand is not stocked in stores as the team only sell their clothes to private clients but in collaborating with Barbie, David hopes the brand can finally push into the mainstream.

'And that's the direction we would like to produce,' he said. 'Things that are more accessible to more people. This is a step in the right direction.'
