A Thailand-Inspired Costume

There once was a princess in a land far away....



Exotic Intrigue Barbie wears an elegant costume featured in the Christopher Varaste article "Runway to the Orient" for the June 2004 issue of Barbie Bazaar magazine celebrating the 45th Anniversary of Barbie. The Francis Ford Coppola epic "The Legend of Suriyothai" (2003) served as inspiration for this wonderful design by Waramon Cain.

Based on a 16th Century historical figure who was regarded by the Thai people as the "great feminist", the film portrays the life of the beautiful Princess Suriyothai.
