Gigi Hadid has reached a new pinnacle in her career: She’s just been immortalized in plastic. The living doll took to Instagram to unveil Mattel’s tribute, a blonde Barbie in Hadid’s likeness.
The release coincides with Hadid’s second design collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger, TommyXGigi, so the doll is wearing a Tommy Jeans logo t-shirt, denim cut-offs, and is carrying a chain-accented backpack. The doll features Hadid’s signature wavy blonde hair and oversized bright blue eyes.
Perhaps a reference to Hadid’s California roots, the doll wears rollerblades, photographed skating near the beach to a backdrop of palm trees. In the photo, the plastic figurine is accompanied by another blonde-hair, blue-eye Barbie, who is featured carrying an iPhone to document the excursion.
Captioned by “Great (Malibu!) minds think alike! Snapping a selfie with Gigi Hadid in our matching Tommy Hilfiger tees,” the dolls smile as they pose for a selfie on California’s Venice Beach boardwalk.
The design collaboration is available today, with Hilfiger and Hadid clearly excited to launch, as both have been actively sharing images from the campaign.
