Sterling Silver Rose was created in 2002.

Enveloped in purple, Barbie has two-toned hair. Mostly purple, but with a dash of blonde in front. Her hair is cut short on the sides with straight angles, but piled high on top of her head in a cone shape. At the top of the cone hair mysteriously appears in an ‘s’ shaped swirl.

Barbie has purple lips and a closed mouth.

Here is a closeup of her face and the design work in action:
