NEW BARB ON THE SCENE
BARBIE IS SERVING BODY….
Supermodel sensation Ashley Graham has been made into a Mattel doll. The new doll, created in Graham’s image is the first of its kind. Graham specifically wanted the doll without a thigh gap and explicitly requested rounded features. From her flirty body-con dress to her trendy denim jacket, this Barbie is serving serious curvy girl swag. The outfit is a replica of her featured Addition Elle NYFW look- September 16′.

“We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world…I’m thrilled Barbie has not only evolved their product, but also has continued to honor women who are pushing boundaries. It’s an honor to be immortalized in plastic.” Ashley said in a statement.
Barbie symbolizes an iconic, multifaceted, career woman much like Graham. Unfortunately, Graham’s body positive Barbie is not available for sale – it was was created for Graham as a gift in honor of her activism for inclusivity in fashion.
