Elizabeth Taylor gets a new Barbie dedicated to her

Elizabeth Taylor has a new Barbie doll dedicated to her.
Toy giant Mattel have honoured the late actress and her charity by creating a unique new doll, which comes with her signature black hair and a glamorous white dress and is named 'White Diamonds' after Elizabeth's best-selling perfume.
A red satin ribbon can be seen pinned onto the dress, representing Elizabeth's dedication to helping those living with HIV/AIDS, and the Barbie comes with accessories such as gold jewellery, white sunglasses and a miniature replica bottle of her famous fragrance.
The Elizabeth Taylor White Diamonds Barbie doll is available on BarbieCollector.com for $150.
The doll is not the first to be modelled on the late actress, as one has already been produced capturing the look from her hit film 'Cleopatra' and another in a semi-sheer sleeveless chiffon violet gown, with a real Swarovski crystal necklace.
Elizabeth, who died in March 2011 from congestive heart failure, was recently named the highest-paid dead celebrity by Forbes and is said to have earned a staggering $210 million last year alone from the auctioning of her jewellery, costumes and artwork.
