When Living Barbie® doll was introduced in 1970, Barbie® doll's face paint, hair, body, and swimsuit had all undergone transformations. She had new reddish orange lips and blush, a straight shoulder-length hairstyle with a middle part and bangs (available in blond, brunette, or titian), and a new poseable body complete with head tilts, hand turns, arm swings, elbow bends, and waist twists. She also wore a glamorous gold and silver metallic knit swimsuit accented with a bright orange nylon net hooded cover-up with golden braid trim. Very stylish!
