Glamour‘s Woman of the Year Ashley Graham was presented with her very own Barbie doll during the magazine’s annual Women of the Year Summit.
The Barbie joins the brand’s “Shero” collection, dolls based on women who have “broken boundaries, challenged gender norms and proven girls can be anything they want to be,” according to Mattel. Among these women are Zendaya, Kristin Chenoweth, Gabby Douglas, Misty Copeland and Ava DuVernay.
Graham, who has been extremely vocal about body positivity throughout her career, had a few stipulations for the doll’s design. “She had to have her thighs touch. No ands, ifs or buts about it. And I asked for cellulite but obviously plastic and cellulite don’t go hand in hand,” she recently told The Hollywood Reporter.
Always encouraging women to embrace their curves and feel confident about their natural body types, Graham was thrilled with the final results: “She got a round belly. She got round hips. She got round everything, yes!”
As for the doll’s style choices, Graham’s Barbie wears a glittery Opening Ceremony bodycon dress paired with a Sonia Rykiel cropped jean jacket and Pierre Hardy boots (modeled after one of Graham’s own outfits, naturally).
Unfortunately for us, this Barbie isn’t for sale to the general public, but it’s still a step in the right direction in terms of acknowledging the diversity of bodies. “We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world,” Graham said in a statement. “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.”
