Some would describe it as over the top, but for us, Idia is a Barbie girl living in a Barbie world, and it’s fantastic. From the lush pink ball gown to her silver accessories that gave it that extra oomph, we loved how stunning Idia Aisien looked in her barbie-princess dress, and to top it all off, she left us spoiled for choice when she whipped out the statement bow-headpiece that added a little extravagant touch to her entire outfit.
