Ava DuVernay has officially become a Barbie doll.
The Oscar-nominated director of Selma and Mattel have announced that a Barbie doll modelled after her is now on sale.
The toy brand tweeted on Sunday, “We’re so excited to share that the @AVAETC #Barbie doll will be available tomorrow! Check back here for more details on how to get your doll.”
DuVernay wrote, “Tomorrow this #AvaBarbie goes on sale for Christmas because enough folks asked @Mattel to do so. Wild + wonderful.”
After Variety Magazine’s Power of Women Luncheon earlier this year, Mattel released one-of-kind dolls of female celebs like Kristen Chenoweth, Eva Chen and DuVernay.
DuVernay’s doll was well-reviewed so the company decided to release it.
