The toy company’s ongoing range celebrates leading figures across all industries who have helped shape and impact culture.

“When I was first asked to participate in the Barbie’s ‘Tribute’ series, I was completely overwhelmed on so many levels,” the designer shared in a press release. “While it has been an honor for me to have created so many looks for Barbie through the years, from wedding to red carpet, a Barbie in my own likeness is something I never could have imagined. Barbie is the ultimate icon, and she represents all of us, and through the decades, she has continued to evolve, to every changing standard of women while reflecting huge shifts in our society, if not the world,” she added.
