Bella and Gigi Hadid Get the Barbie Treatment with Their Very Own Lookalike Victoria's Secret Dolls
The model sisters are now immortalized in doll form along with fellow supers Cindy Crawford and Ashley Graham
Gigi and Bella Hadid have pretty much done it all when it comes to the world of modeling. Every benchmark most professional posers seek to achieve, the Hadid sisters have already accomplished ten times over in their brief but very high-profile careers. Both have walked the runways of every major designer, fronted major print campaigns, posed for the covers of the top fashion magazines in the world, hosted awards shows, made music video cameos, and most recently walked the Victoria’s Secret runway. While it may seem hard to imagine what more they could possibly aspire to, Gigi and Bella just unlocked yet another echelon of success, getting the Barbie treatment with their very own lookalike dolls.
In Bella’s latest Instagram story from Monday night, the model shared yet another honor that has been bestowed upon the supermodel sisters: being immortalized in doll form. Bella shared an image of two Barbie-type dolls that look remarkably like her and Gigi wearing tiny, exact replicas of the lingerie the pair wore on the Victoria’s Secret runway, complete with spray tans and Beachwaver-type curls. While these dolls are likely one-off creations made by a fan to commemorate the Hadids’ body-baring walks, with enough pressure from fans, we bet Mattel could be convinced to put these dolls into production.
And the Hadids aren’t the only catwalkers with their own doll to celebrate. OG super Cindy Crawford announced on Sunday she will also be getting a very glam Barbie created in her image.
Cindy’s doll is a part of Mattel’s new “Sheroes” venture, a line of dolls celebrated trailblazing women like ballerina Misty Copeland and director Ava DuVernay. And of course, the Barbie features the supermodel’s same killer cheekbones and signature mole, though like the Hadids’ dolls, it remains to be seen whether it will become available to the public. This announcement also comes on the heels of another major “Sheroes” reveal: the creation of Ashley Graham’s groundbreaking, one-of-a-kind Barbie.
While Barbie’s measurements have remained the same for years (only getting some size diversity in 2016)a, Graham made sure her doll totally broke that mold. The Sports Illustrated cover girl requested not only that her Barbie be as curvaceous as she is, with “round hips, arms, and tummy,” but also that the doll’s thighs actually touch. While this may seem like a minor detail, as Graham has pointed out numerous times, representation can be something very powerful for women and their self-esteem, and Barbie is a great place to start.
