This blond Barbie is a pretty little doll, and she is stunning as she struts her necklace that features a 1-carat pink diamond. She was up for bids at the Christieâ€™s auction house in New York for an estimated $300,000 to $500,000 dollars. She sold for $302,500 on October 21st, 2010 to an anonymous bidder. This makes her the worldâ€™s most expensive Barbie.
The great part is that her auction proceeds will all be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in support of breast cancer awareness month.
