A luxurious pink faux fur stole with blue lining recalls the vivid backgrounds of his numerous portraits, while blue pumps accented with glitter make reference to Warhol’s “diamond dust” technique of crushing glass onto canvas. Shimmering rhinestone earrings, a necklace, and cocktail ring are all originally featured on the Peaches ‘n Cream Barbie®, top off this show-stopping tribute to two of the greatest.
