Mattel-designer, Carlyle Nuera holds one of his new Barbies, Claudette Gordon, which is part of the Harlem Theater series, slated for release in September of this year. The doll's retail price is $85. This picture does not provide the full detail of her gorgeous face, which is a new head sculpt (and a must-have for me!), the next image, however, does.
She appears to have full articulation and has a Jazz Diva Barbie flavor. See one of the best photos I have seen thus far of her here and a couple of others of Claudette Gordon here.
I am feeling excited about this one!
