Awesome! Model Ashley Graham just got her own Barbie doll! Yahoo reports that the doll was unveiled at the 2016 GlamourWoman of the Year Live summit in Los Angeles. The doll looks like Ashley, and, maybe more importantly, something other than a size 2. Ashley got input on the doll’s proportions and outfit.
Lisa McKnight, the manager of all things Barbie, says “Ashley Graham is a trailblazer who inspires every woman — and girl — to see the beauty in herself… This year Barbie has evolved to be more inclusive by adding three new body shapes into the line and we hope our relationship with Ashley will further make an impact.”
Ashley adds, “I think it’s absolutely incredible that an iconic image in the fashion world, like Barbie, is keeping up with the times and following along with body diversity in such a big way.”
