Ashley Graham Now Has Her Own Barbie Made to Her Measurements

As if we didn’t already love Ashley Graham enough as it is, the model unveiled a one-of-a-kind barbie doll that exactly matches her own proportions at Glamour’s Women of the Year summit in LA on Monday evening, according to People

“It was important that the Barbie resembled me as much as possible. The thighs touching was one way to show young girls that it’s okay for your thighs to touch, despite society saying that a ‘thigh gap’ is more beautiful,” Graham explained in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. Yes, please, girl. 

 

Come on @Barbie, let’s go party!!! Thank you to my new and incredible @Mattel family for this honor! #beautybeyondsize #barbie #curvybarbie

She continued on stage at the summit, “We need to work together to redefine the global image of beauty and continue to push for a more inclusive world,” and “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.” We are bowing down to you, Queen Graham.
