One Million Moms must be blowing a gasket over this one.

Global Grind reports:

Mattel has announced plans to produce their first ever Drag Queen Barbie in collaboration with the New York City-based design duo The Blonds who are responsible for dressing some of the biggest names around, including Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez.

The gender bender doll called ‘The Blonds Blond Diamond Barbie Doll’ doesn't come equipped with detachable lady parts or a Ken bump, it is simply a regular Barb that takes after the cross dressing Phillipe Blond of the NYC design duo, and we think it is pretty darn fab.

We completely agree!

However, this isn’t the first foray the design duo has made into the world of the original blond bombshell. The Blonds previously worked together with Barbie Collector designer Linda Kyaw to create a number of limited edition Barbie dolls sporting their sophisticated and sexy signature look. (Read our interview with them here.)

Exquisite from hair to heels, this fabulous edition of the plastic princess comes dressed in a sweeping faux fur coat, diamond encrusted mini dress, glitter pumps, and a painted face that would turn RuPaul Barbie-pink with envy.

This lady will be working the toy-isle runway in time for Christmas and can be the fiercest edition to your collection for $125.

Barbie, shantay you stay!
