Dame Helen Mirren and pop star Kylie Minogue are among eight famous women who have had dolls made in their likeness to mark the beloved toy’s 65th anniversary year and to recognize their achievements as “Female Storytellers”. Helen’s doll is dressed in a cornflower blue outfit with matching hair, which is a recreation of a gown she wore on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival in France last year and the Barbie is clutching an Oscar statuette representing her Best Actress win for “The Queen”. As well as Helen and Kylie Minogue, other dolls have been made for singer Shania Twain, actress Viola Davis and model Nicole Fujita as well as comedian/activist Enissa Amani, moviemaker Lila Aviles and content creator Maira Gomez.

It’s a very special thing and something I can add to my list of my favorite achievements – becoming a Dame of the British Empire, having an Oscar, having a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and having my own Barbie. The intricacy and detail of the doll is extraordinary; I love that the Barbie doll is wearing one of my favourite ever red carpet looks, and it was the first time I’d ever had blue hair, and it felt so exciting. I like to embrace theatrical fashion and the joy that having fun with fashion can bring, and I think that this joy should be age-less. And the cherry on top of the cake is my doll having a miniature Oscar. It is an absolutely perfect reproduction.
