Check Out The Influential Women Who Have Their Own Barbie Dolls

In its latest addition to its Sheroes Collection, Barbie has added plus-size model and activist, Ashley Graham to the growing list of women to aspire to be.

In an Instagram post of a side-by-side image of the model and the doll, Graham emotes, "Thighs touching, round hips, arms and tummy," thanking Mattel and Barbie for slowly redefining "the global image of beauty" and continuing "to push for a more inclusive world."

And with this new toy added to the company's collection, MAKERS is looking back at some of the other incredible Barbie dolls that have been created, those that were inspired by the familiar faces of some of our idols.

Though not all are available for purchase, they are definitely worth admiring.
