2000 Jewel Girl Barbie

Jewel Girl Barbie, 2000 "As the fashion world became more body conscious, so did Barbie," according to Mattel. "Jewel Girl Barbie underwent a millennial makeover featuring a new, more athletic physique, a bendable, flexible waist and her first belly button. Always ready for a party, her hipster slim pants, crop top and fresh-colored pastel jacket could go from day to night in a flash. Bring on that personal touch – her stick-on fashion jewels allowed girls to customize the outfit or accessorize their own rock star-inspired look.
